In this blog, we talk about some of our favorite home improvement projects that boost your home and change the entire vibe around it. So whether you decide to update your bathroom, DIY your kitchen décor or paint your walls, do it! There is no excuse for not having the home you have always envisioned.
Make Your Entrance Welcoming
Are you looking for an inexpensive home upgrade idea that can make a big impact? It doesn’t get much easier than making your entrance more inviting and cheering for those living in the house or the guests. A squeaky, outdated, or faded door doesn’t leave a good first impression, and on top of that, no security! A simple replacement of your entrance door and some plants around the area can totally change your entrance look. You can choose from steel doors, fiberglass doors, or other wood doors, depending on your budget and maintenance plans.
Remodel Your Kitchen
The kitchen is one of the most consumed spaces in your home, isn’t it? It’s that place where your family bonds and you make great memories. When remodeling the kitchen, don’t go overboard. The proportion of money spending on the kitchen should be half the value of your home cost because only the kitchen would take up most of the renovating budget. Start small first by replacing the kitchen faucet, adding new cabinet hardware, and replacing old light fixtures with modern and energy-efficient options. Rather than replacing the cabinets, paint the old ones or hire an expert to refinish the cabinets boxes. Minor updates like these can change the outlook of your kitchen with minimum spending.
Boost the Curb Appeal
The first impression counts, and enhancing the curb appeal around your home can be as simple as introducing a new walkway or scrubbing the siding of your home. Install a front door matching the exterior of your home and the colors around to give your home a boosted, striking and distinctive look. Pay attention to the gardening around your home by planting more trees and surrounding bushes for a finished look. To make the garden more colorful, add flowerbed or pots of geraniums that make the area look neater and organized. Also, pay attention to your home’s siding and if it’s dirty with years of buildup mud or needs any retouch on worn areas, make sure to scrub the sides for a neater and clean look. Like most items, don’t go overboard. Creating a backyard paradise is nice, but all you need is a well-kept lawn and some well-placed shrubbery.
Pressure Wash Those Windows
Whether you’re performing essential home maintenance or prepping the windows before repainting the trim, make sure to clean off all the dust, dirt and debris with a pressure wash. But before you pressure wash, examine the conditions to ensure that the materials can withstand the pressure of water without damaging any part. A pressure wash can loosen chipping paint or damage exposed wood, so it’s better first to analyze and inspect the area. Apply any window cleaner first to remove any stains and dirt on the window. Use a soapy spray to foam up the window with cleaning liquid and then pressure wash with water to remove and clean. Spray from the top of the window downwards to complete the rinsing and allow the window to dry. Check for any water damages or water leakages, and there you have a nice shiny reflecting window.
Paint or Paper a Wall
Select the perfect self-adhesive wallpaper to create an accent that’s easy to apply, remove and reuse. Put up colors and wallpapers that reflect you and your home comfort to create a comfy environment corresponding to the room. Don’t select bright colors matching with dim paints that go against your home color scheme. Be creative around the wallpapers and paint jobs; for instance, tape the patterns on the decorative paper applied on the wall, then use a craft knife to cut around the template and peel away the paper above. In areas like the living room, select sober and dimmer colors that aren’t very bright that hurt the eye. Paint jobs that make a home appealing are selected with careful thought of with trial and error on small areas. While your new paint job or wallpapers may look attractive to guests, another idea is to hang string lights that can set the perfect ambiance inside and outside.
Boost your Yard
Outdoor seating can be the best escape during the day, and if you have a space that offers you a relaxed vibe, make sure you don’t let it go into vein. Flagstone or cement pavers can be the perfect walkways around or between your lawn which require no mortar and can be done quickly on the weekend. With potted plants and outdoor seating with some ambiance lights, it can be a real outdoor retreat. A place where you can host your friends and family in the evening or at night and make everyone happy and at comfort in your yard. One added tip is that you can also install a Barbeque Grill beside and enjoy hot serving dinners and grilled foods on chilly nights under the open sky with your favorite people!
