Things are supposed to be easy at home, right? Unfortunately, that isn’t always the case. Many homeowners just don’t have the time it takes to get a lot of home improvement projects done. For that reason, we have come up with a few home improvement tips to help you.
Changing up the Kitchen
Most people tend to spend a lot of time in the kitchen – either cooking or cleaning. You don’t need to knock down walls or tear up floors to make it look better and be more efficient. A new refrigerator, for example, makes a significant difference, especially one that fits better. You can easily find counter-depth refrigerators in many styles and colors that add a bit more space and spruce up that room.
Change the Walls
You may not think much about the walls in a room, but a few simple changes can change the dynamic. If you’re satisfied with the color, consider acquiring American Fine Art, choosing subjects that work with your aesthetics. If you aren’t a fan of your wall color or it needs to be painted again, you can do it in an afternoon. Consider the theme you’re going for and a color that complements your existing furniture.
Don’t limit yourself, there are quite a few home decor ideas that are cost-efficient and easy for changing up the look of things.
Hide Those Cords
That tangled jungle of cords behind the computer, TV, or another electronic setup, while necessary, adds a cluttered look. It also provides pests with free shelter and food. For example, did you know that some bugs feed on the hair follicles and skin cells that we shed? Mice can even use those areas to collect debris and dust bunnies that they will use as nest lining. It is worth taking a little bit of time to organize the cord jungle so that they aren’t a magnet for dust and other debris. Try mounting your power strips on your walls and bind your cords together using cable ties so that their sprawl is limited. Labeling each one is a great idea so you’re never left second-guessing.
Check Recall Lists
Go around your home and make a list of the model number and the brand of each one of your appliances. Once you have completed that, make a trip to Recalls.gov to check to see if any of them have been recalled for one reason or another. This can ensure that your home is safe, and you might even score a new appliance from it!
Holes in your window screens are unsightly. You can easily fix it by coating both sides of the tear with clear nail polish. Be sure to use thick coats on each side.
Making your home feel like new doesn’t need to be difficult or even require a whole home remodel. Just a few quick things can work like a charm and improve the look and feel.
