It's that time of year when we spend the most time inside our homes. So why not use some of that time improving your home? Not only will it boost your mood, it'll add value to your home. Here are some projects that you can do over the weekend.
Getting Rid of Junk
Removing clutter is a great way to make your home feel more open. Plus, having all the junk removed from your house will help spark some home improvement and decorating ideas.
Installing Shelves or Hooks
Shelves helps keep small items--decorative or otherwise--off counters and tabletops. Installing hooks around the house is another way of keeping items such as keys, towels, and jackets off flat surfaces.
Changing Light Fixtures
One way to brighten up a room is to install a new light fixture. One that fits the intended decor of the room. Ceiling fans are an especially nice addition because they can push warm air down in the winter and cool off a room in the summer. Another way to improve the lighting of the room is to install a dimmer switch.
Changing Blinds and Adding Curtains
Fresh new blinds make a room look sharp while curtains add a bit of softness. The two combined provide an effective sound and light barrier whenever needed.
Re-caulking a Bathroom
Re-caulking will make your bathroom feel cleaner and brighter while preventing mildew, mold, and water damage.
Changing a Faucet
Simply replacing a faucet can transform the look of your kitchen or bathroom.
Changing a Showerhead
Updating a showerhead can save you money on your water bill and improve your overall shower experience. This is especially true if you switch from a single-function showerhead to a multifunction showerhead.
Changing Hardware on Doors and Cabinets
New hinges and handles can make cabinets pop and an updated doorknob can complete the look of a room.
