The Top New Year's Renovation Resolutions

ECOS 01/07/2016

2015 flew right by and here we are in a brand new year – which always gets us thinking about what we want to accomplish in the next 12 months. No matter how hard you worked, we bet you didn’t get all of the renovations on your wish-list done last year. That, my friends, is called reality. You maybe wanted to paint the kitchen cabinets, the floor in the laundry room, and put a coat of varnish on the baseboards. And maybe the laundry room floor got done (yeah!), you picked the paint color for the cabinets (good for you!), but the baseboards you completely forgot about. Again, welcome to reality – but no need to feel discouraged. That's the life of a DIYer. There's always another project around the corner! What's on your list for this year? Share your top New Year’s renovation resolutions below for a chance at winning a $200 gift card for ECOS Paints!

What are other homeowners thinking about renovating this year? According to a survey conducted by LG Appliances and reported in the lohud journal, an overwhelming 9 out of 10 homeowners plan on doing some renovation projects in their home this year. Nearly everyone has something they want to fix or change in their home. You are not alone! Here are some interesting findings from the survey:

  • 46% of people want to renovate their kitchen. Nearly half of all homeowners say that's their number one priority.
  • 4 out of 5 people would give up something fun like a vacation, Saturdays, date nights, and surfing the web to be able to do a major renovation this year.
  • 47% of people wish their kitchen was bigger and see it as a central part of their home that guests spend time socializing in.
  • 27% say they spend a large amount of time in their kitchens even when they're not eating or cooking.

Can you relate to these findings? Is a kitchen renovation your #1 priority for 2016? Or do you have a completely different New Year's renovation resolution? Let us know what it is/they are in the comments for a chance to win a $200 gift code for ECOS Paints, stains, varnishes, and more to help kickstart your project!
