You’re probably reading this blog post today because you want to make a few improvements to your home this year. The thing is, you likely don’t have much time or money to make any significant changes, but you do want to make some upgrades.
Is there anything you can do that will make a noticeable improvement? Believe it or not, there are some minor upgrades you can make to your home that you and your family will enjoy!
Take a look at the following five examples to learn more about what you could do to your home today without breaking the bank:
1. Install A Sprinkler System
Do you have a lawn that you lovingly spend hours each week tending to and keeping beautiful? If the answer’s yes, one thing you likely wish you could save time on is watering your garden.
When you live in an area with a hot climate, it makes sense to devote some time watering your grass and plants. Unfortunately, watering everything with a hose or watering can is a time-consuming pastime.
One way to cut down on your watering time is by getting a sprinkler system fitted. They are cheap to buy and easy to set up, yet they’ll save you lots of time! If you don’t have an outside water outlet for your sprinkler system, consider hiring a plumber to install one for you.
2. Paint Your Doors And Window Frames
Are your internal doors, door frames, and window frames looking tired and dated? Were they once a brilliant white color but are now a more subdued yellow? Should those questions apply to your home, now’s the time to get out your paintbrush and a tin of gloss white paint!
Painting doors, door frames, and window frames might seem like a time-consuming exercise. But, it’s one of the simplest DIY tasks you could do this year that will make a difference in your home.
3. Change Your Door Handles
If you’re looking for easy yet affordable upgrades to make in your home and ones that you can apply to any residential property, it’s changing your door handles!
Even someone with hardly any DIY experience can change their door handles. All you need is a screwdriver or two and a few minutes to devote to changing the handles on each door.
4. Upgrade All Lighting To LEDs
Have you ever noticed how more residential properties and commercial buildings have adopted LED light technology? LED lights offer several advantages over CFL bulbs and traditional halogen lighting.
For example, LEDs require hardly any electricity to operate, resulting in significant utility bill savings. They’re also quick to light up and offer a clean and crisp light.
5. Power Wash Your Patio
Lastly, if the concrete pavers on your patio are looking gray and lackluster, consider breathing some life into them with a power washing session.
You can use a domestic pressure washer to remove the dirt and grime from your patio, or you can hire a pressure washing company to do the work for you. Either way, the results will leave you amazed!
