Looking for ways to freshen your home? Here are some tips for you.
Clean Your House
It may seem like a basic tip, but a clean home can definitely improve its value in an instant. Try to watch shows like Hoarders and Reno vs. Relocate and you will get an idea that a clear, clean and organized home appreciates in value while the opposite of such is a candidate for authorities to close and condemn.
Fix Your Broken Furniture
There are a lot of blogs that focus on doing Do It Yourself projects from chairs, cabinets, tables and even doors. Choose one that matches your needs and what will make your home more functional and beautiful. Of course, you can hire someone to help you with this especially if the needed fix is more than you can manage, still cheaper than buying a new set of furniture if you think about it.
Dig Your Closet
Maybe it is time to let go of the curtain that hasn't been changed for years. Wash and hang those and see if that still looks beautiful. If not, then it is time to change your curtains. Before you go ahead and buy a set, check if you still have some inside your closet. You can even turn this into a sewing project if you want to make use of your skills. Make sure to dig your closet, ask if your Mom still has a spare set of curtains to give you before heading to the department store. You can definitely purchase those lovely curtains soon, but the goal is to save on doing home improvements so stick with cheaper alternatives.
Replace Bulbs With Energy Efficient Alternatives
Cleaning your old bulbs may help, but a wiser choice is to replace it with energy efficient ones instead. Put all your old bulbs to rest or take them to appropriate recycling center and watch how simple change in lighting helps improve the look and feel of your home.
