Oak beam themed New Year resolutions inspiration
by Freddie Armstrong
If you’re reading this article, you’re probably wondering what possible link there can be between oak beams and New Year’s resolutions. Actually, quite a lot of links, as it turns out…
1) See more of the family
Whether it’s working, commuting to work or answering the constant stream of work-related emails, we all lead such busy lives these days and many of us struggle to get the work-life balance right. As a result, a lot of us will resolve to spend more time seeing our nearest and dearest in 2020.
While buying an oak beam can’t help you to spend more time with your loved ones, it does give you the perfect place to display your favourite family photos.
While we’re not saying that decorating an oak beam with family photos is in any way a replacement for having more quality time with your family, being reminded of the fun times you all have together when you’re heading out into a dark, rainy morning on the way to work, is a nice little boost.
2) Drink less booze with the help of an oak beam
With Dry January just around the corner, many of us will be making the most of the free-flowing fizz this Christmas, before cutting back in the New Year.
How can oak beams help you to stay sober? Having a wood-burning stove framed by a lovely oak beam will make your house feel super cozy and the call of the pub seem less tempting. We guarantee that when your house is nice and warm and you can snuggle up in front of a crackling fire, you won’t want to head out into the dark, cold night to have a drink.
Just make sure there’s no mulled wine left to warm on the stove…
3) Give your living room a lift with an oak beam
After Christmas is over and the decorations come down, our homes can feel pretty boring and bare. Why not make a resolution to redecorate your living space?
Installing an oak beam is a really simple way to add some character to your home.
And, as it’s easy to put it, it could be your first step on our next New Year’s resolution…
