4 Easy Ways To Spruce Up Your Home
If you are thinking about selling your house, or maybe you are looking to give your house a little spruce up before the dark days of winter, here are 4 sure fire tips to help.
- Think about it before you start.
This might sound obvious, but it’s the most important step. Knowing what you are trying to achieve before you start helps with the entire process. Begin by listing the changes you want to make. This will allow you to plan budgeting and timing. It will also give you an idea of whether you will want to make the changes yourself or if you will hire tradesmen to do the work. If you decide the latter, do research to ensure you will get quality work. Many companies will have online reviews which will give you an idea of their work.
- Get painting
One of the easiest ways to brighten / change your house or a specific room is to paint. This will provide a fresh and clean look. You can also get creative with colour to create feature walls in one room or multiple rooms. A coat of paint can also lighten a space and compliment furniture or other items in the room. Don’t forget to check the outside walls for chipping or peeling; the outside is what greets anyone who comes to the house.
- Clean it out
An even easier way to spruce up the house is give it a thorough clean. While this might sound like an idea for Spring, it doesn’t matter when you do it – a spic and span house will make the occupants feel better and make the house look great. Just as with the painting, don’t forget the outside. This can involve washing walls or decluttering the garden.
If it’s part of the plan and within your budget, updating a kitchen or bathroom can not only add considerable value to your home but give it a modern look and feel. This can be a complete remodel or you can do smaller things, such as replacing cabinetry or even just the doors on cabinets.
