Have you been putting off your home improvement projects? We’ve all been there. Sometimes home improvement has to get pushed to the side when life gets busy, and we get worn down. It can be hard to make the time to tackle these projects, and it’s easy to become overwhelmed when they start to pile up. Now that we’ve stepped into a new year, it’s a great opportunity to set aside a little time for some simple home improvement projects that will help you brighten your home and make your house shine again.
Paint a Room
Have you been meaning to paint one of the rooms of your home, but you keep putting it off? You’re busy, you’re tired, or maybe you’re just not 100% sure about the right color yet. Now is the time to get that room done. It doesn’t matter if it’s a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, living room, or even a hallway—take the initiative on this project, and you’ll be happy to see your freshly-painted walls looking back at you in a color you chose. Painted walls brighten up a home and give you an opportunity to express yourself and your personal aesthetic. Give a room in your home a fresh start this year.
Repaint Your Cabinets
Maybe walls aren’t what you’ve been hoping to paint—cabinetry is another great option. Having your cabinets refaced or replaced can be expensive. If the structure still works, repainting the cabinets is the most economical option. This can be done if you’re wanting a new color, but it’s also a great option to repaint your cabinets if they’ve become dirty or suffered from scuffs, scrapes, and patches of paint damage. It can be a bit of an undertaking depending on how many cabinets need to be done, but turn it into fun family time and make the most of the project!
Paint Your Front Door
A front door can say a lot about the owners of a home. It has become more common in recent years for homeowners to choose bold door colors that are vibrant and dare to stand out amongst their neighbors. Red is one of the most common colors, but bright yellows and vivid blues are also popular. If your door is damaged or the color just isn’t working for you anymore, this simple project can be completed in an afternoon and leave you with a door that you love to come home to. As an added bonus, it boosts your home’s curb appeal!
