Happy New Year to all our customers from everyone here at Michael Murphy Home Furnishing!

We hope you enjoyed your time off and are feeling rested and ready for everything 2018 has in store!

To help you stay on top of things this year, we’ve gathered some very handy New Year’s resolutions for the home which you can start employing today.

  1. Keep it Decluttered

Start off as you mean to go on in 2018 and give your home a complete clear-out.

Move from room-to-room removing any unwanted items and declutter anything you don’t need.

Give the entire house a quick declutter once a month and it will remain in tiptop shape all year round.

  1. Safe and Secure

Check all fire, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in your home and ensure they are in good working order.

Now’s also the time to examine bedrooms, bathrooms and basements for signs of damp and remove any traces of mould you find.

  1. Go Green

Save money on energy bills this year with these simple tips:

  • Turn off the lights when you leave a room
  • Install energy saving light bulbs
  • Take a shower instead of a bath
  • Unplug electronics when not in use
  • Completely fill the dishwasher or washing machine before using

The above are just a few New Year’s resolutions for the home you can start using today.

We’ll have more great tips, tricks and interior inspiration all year long on the Michael Murphy Blog.
