If you have been searching for quick and inexpensive tips for home improvement, then I can provide you a few great ones right here. These tips can save you hassle, time, and money in adding more liveliness to your home. Adding new paint or new designs can enhance the appearance of both the interior and exterior home. Read on to find out how these amazing tips helped to inspire me:
* Paint the Front Door, Trim or Shutters
Paint is great for reviving and giving your home a nice fresh look. By painting, this is just a great inexpensive way to brighten your home. I chose bold colors to help my home stand out more. You always want colors to match or blend in well so getting a color chart would be a bit helpful. Before i started my painting project, i made sure that the surfaces were prepared first by sanding out the rough spots. You may choose to prime the wall or buy paint with primer added already. I chose one coat coverage paint because it saved me a lot of valuable time and money combined.
* Replace or Repair Windows
Broken windows can take away from the nice appearance of you home, plus they can raise the cost of your electricity bill because of cracks and holes that let heat and air in or let heat and air escape. I repaired small non-noticeable cracks with clear silicone which allowed the crack to seal. You may choose to repair or replace the windows yourself, but if you are not skilled, then it would be wse to contact a professional window repair service.
Having a nice landscaped lawn will certainly add a lively appearance to home and property. You may choose flowers for each season. I keep my lawn well maintained all throughout the year. An attractive lawn will add the the value of home and property, add a nice and neat appearance, plus benefit the environment, wildlife, and birds. I chose to be a bit sustainable too by adding a rain garden near the downspouts. During the spring season, I added a garden to attract hummingbirds and butterflies. The more color the more liveliness. If you are not skilled at landscaping or lawn maintenance, then there are a wide array of landscaping companies who work year-round.
* Exterior Lighting
Adding more liveliness to your home with exterior lighting can make your home really vibrant at night. I added exterior lighting to my home for two reasons that include enhancing the appearance and safety. If you are not experienced or skilled in working with electricity, gas lanterns or solar lighting, then t would be wise to contact a professional company to get he job done right. Exterior lighting worked perfectly for me.
* Choose A Creative Mailbox
An old, crooked mailbox can subtract from the nice appearance of any home. You can get a brand new one or build a nice artful one your self. I chose to build my own mailbox with wood, then I painted it to add a nice appearance to both home and property. This surely added much curb appeal and he mail delivery service really appreciated the nice updated box.
Interior Rugs and Pillows
You can make your home look more inviting and welcoming by adding some matching throw rugs and throw pillows. I added throw rugs to my hall, living area, and bedroom. I added throw pillows on couch and beds. They helped to liven the appearance of the rooms. I chose colors that matched my interior painting of the rooms.
Outdoor Living Area
I really enjoy my outdoor living area with outdoor fireplace for the winter season. This is a great way to entertain family and friends, plus give your home a lively look. It is great for gathering around, outdoor grilling and much more. It can be used all throughout the year.
