Is your home feeling a bit drab? These little tricks are simple ways you can make your house feel brand new in no time at all.
Is your dining room table overflowing with mail? Is there a pile of unnecessary belongings spread throughout your home? If so, take a few minutes and clean up the clutter! Throw away things that aren’t necessary and store away whatever’s left. Decluttering reduces stress, helps you sleep better, and boosts productivity. You’ll feel so much better about your living space when you come home to a well-organized and clutter-free home!
Frozen pipes are a nightmare, so do whatever you can to keep them at a safe temperature. You can protect pipes that run through an exterior wall by turning on a faucet when the temperature drops below 32°. It doesn’t have to be a lot of water, just let your faucet lightly trickle to allow for flowing water, which prevents your pipes from freezing up on a cold winter’s night.
Cold air, stay away! If there are rooms in your home that get a bit chilly, add rubber sweeps to the interior doors. These will trap heat and stop cold air from creeping into your room. As an extra bonus, these sweeps keep your heating bill down, too!
The outside of your home easily accumulates dust, grime, and mold. This can make your exterior look old and worn, which doesn’t do much for your curb appeal. A thorough power washing can give your home the bath it needs. You can do the job yourself, or book a professional power wash session. Before you know it, your home will be looking as good as new!
If you don’t want to devote time and energy to a complete kitchen remodel, a simple cabinet update can still do the trick. A quick repaint, fresh cleaning, or small upgrade to increase your cabinet space goes a long way. Not only will your cabinets look great and benefit your entire family, but these simple updates also boost the value of your kitchen.
Placing a carpet over your floor can make your home feel warm and cozy. But when’s the last time your beautiful floors got some attention? If your rugs are worn out, it might be time to replace them. If you’re not up for searching for new carpeting, throw away the old rugs and let your flooring shine! Give your floor a proper buffing and you’ll feel like you stepped into a brand new home!
What’s a simple, inexpensive, and quick way to turn a room from drab to fab? Give it a fresh coat of paint!
