Are you among the 8 percent of the U.S. population (according to Forbes.com) that actually succeed with your New Years resolutions? Maybe the problem is that your resolutions just aren’t ones you’re really excited about. But what if your New Years resolutions were focused on making your Poconos home more comfortable, inviting, and enjoyable?
Instead of beating yourself up over changes you really don’t want to make, perhaps it makes more sense to make some changes to your home that you’ll really enjoy. Here are a few ideas to get your creative resolution juices flowing.
Is a dark or cramped kitchen keeping you from entertaining the way you’d like? Maybe what your kitchen needs is more than just a fresh coat of paint. A fully remodeled kitchen can make it a room where you’ll enjoy preparing meals and entertaining guests. A qualified builder/remodeler can help you make the most of the space you have and turn your kitchen from boring to beautiful!

Take Advantage of Space You Have
If you love your location but are feeling a bit squeezed for space you don’t have to move. You may be able to make better use of the space you already have. An unfinished basement can be a great media room or game room. Or your garage could do more than simply cover your car: you could turn it into a workshop or build in storage space that frees up space in your home.
Cut Down On Utility Bills
Nobody likes spending too much on their utility bills, and yet, the average annual cost of an American home's energy bill is nearly $2,000! We’ve discovered that a lot of people in the Poconos area don’t even know what they’re spending on utilities.
