How To Plan A Phenomenal Home Improvement Project
Home improvements can satisfy a variety of different desires for any homeowner, from the desire to improve a home’s value, to a need for a more livable space, to a simple interest in seeing something new. If you are thinking about making changes to your home, you should read this article.
Make sure that your home is well insulated. Insulation is important in keeping the temperature of your home consistent, regardless of the temperature outside of your home. This is helpful in keeping down the cost of your energy bill in the heating and cooling of your house. Insulation is also effective in reducing the noise coming from outside. Furthermore, it adds to the value of your home (be sure to keep all receipts and invoices so that you can prove what work was done).
Don’t overlook the addition of storage space to your new or existing home. Most homes are substantially lacking in storage space. Add built in bookshelves to the living room or dining room. Turn a broom closet near the kitchen into a food pantry. Small changes and additions will really add up.
Remove a door from its frame without taking out the screws in the hinges. Need to take out a door so you can move a big piece of furniture? All you have to do is drive a nail through the bottom of the barrel of the hinge so the pin slides out of the top. Do that on both hinges and the door is free!
Choose area rugs instead of wall-to-wall carpeting. Area rugs can be moved and replaced easily, allow you to upgrade and adjust the style of your home anytime you like. In addition, area rugs can be cleaned quickly when they are stained; sometimes they can even be put in the washing machine.
Switch to a floor lamp to free up space on your nightstand or end table. Floor versions are great because they can be easily moved to different locations. Choose a lamp with a unique design that you can appreciate.
Brighten up your kitchen with new cabinet knobs and handles! You’ll find it easy to install cabinets, and they can really spice up the way your home looks. Before installing the new knobs, do a deep cleaning of your cabinets. It’s much less of a hassle when you don’t have to deal with the knobs banging around. Simply screw the new knobs on and presto, you’re done!
To save yourself time and trouble on future maintenance when you do any home improvement, remove water heaters from your attic. While attic water heaters save space, they are difficult to maintain and offer the significant danger of ruining your ceilings (at the very least), if they ever leak. Relocating your water heater into a close,t costs very little space and adds, peace of mind.
Home improvement is not just a TV show. It is something for everyone. It can be as simple as fresh paint or as complex as a refacing your cabinets, but it will enhance the look and value of your home. Use the advice here and get started.
