Look around—it'll help you finally get those "someday" tasks off your to-do list.

Most of us have a list of lingering home projects we've been putting off for months (or maybe even years). Grab a pen—it's time to cross those "someday" tasks off your to-do list! To motivate you to finally complete these home projects, we created the 2022 Get It Done Virtual Home. In collaboration with YouSee Studio, we "built" a two-story colonial that you can tour right from your computer. It will inspire you to reorganize your pantry, revamp your bathroom (no remodeling necessary), decorate those blank walls, and much more.

To tour the virtual house, click on the "Enter Tour" button above. Once you arrive at the house, click on the arrow to step inside. To spin 360 degrees around the room, click and drag. In each room, you'll notice lightbulb icons highlighting all the bright ideas within the space—click on the lightbulb and you'll find tips, how-tos, and shopping sources so you can incorporate these tips and projects into your own home. When you're done exploring the room, click the arrows to walk into the next one. You can also navigate throughout the house by clicking "Rooms" or "Floor Plan" on the bottom left side of the screen.

You can take this virtual tour anywhere—but when you're done, we hope you'll bring these ideas home. Maybe the fireplace facelift in the living room will inspire you to upgrade your own. Perhaps you'll learn how to de-fuzz your upholstered sofa. You might even figure out how to hide those unsightly TV wires. Let the ideas in this virtual house improve your real-life home.
