The new year can be a great time to think about what kinds of changes you might want to make around the house. If you are looking to try a few simple home improvement projects next year, try starting with these three.
1. Update Your Hardware
Updating your hardware can be an easy, relatively inexpensive first step in making your home feel fresh and ready for a new year. If the faucets in your bathroom or kitchen sinks have seen better days, or the handles and knobs on your cabinets are out of date, you may be surprised by what a difference new hardware can make. Even updating interior light fixtures can make a room feel like new.
2. Spruce Up Your Porch
The porch can be a very cozy spot, but it is easy to let things go. Weather and wear all take their toll on porch furniture over time, so why not spruce things up? Simple repairs can be made to most porch furniture, including installing new chains on porch swings and repainting wooden pieces. Even hanging plants or adding a few decorative lights can help. A quick search will show you what kinds of exterior lighting winter park or your home town has to offer. Add a lamp and a hanging fern, and your porch will be all set!
3. Change Your Decor
This one may be the easiest of the three. If you want to improve your home, consider redecorating. This does not have to break the bank– simply look for pieces that fit your style and go well together. Following a particular color scheme or using a Pinterest board to house images of what inspires you can also be helpful.
Home improvement projects can be a lot of fun. In the new year, give these three a try and see what a difference they can make in your house!
