As winter comes to an end, homeowners can still accomplish some quick and easy indoor DIY jobs inside their home before turning attention to lawn care. Here are some improvement ideas to work on now:
Simple Steps to Take
There are a few simple DIY fixes homeowners can make on their own. Swapping out air filters on your heating and air system, clearing debris built up around a central air unit outdoors are easy to undertake without much trouble.
When it comes to more cosmetic features of a home, it’s a good idea to start in rooms where clutter has built up over the course of winter. Stow all coats, mittens, boots and hats out of the way. The same goes for the snow shovels and sleds.
Another DIY project would be to repaint a wall or two. Fresh paint can make a room look like new and costs very little to do. The dryer and cooler winter air is perfect for drying paint. You’ll need to keep a window open for ventilation!
Kitchen Touch Ups
If you feel more adventurous, consider installing a new backsplash in your kitchen or swap out the hardware on cabinets.
Bathroom storage can be made even better with new shelving. If your bathroom fixtures have seen better days, consider installing new ones. Re-grout the tile in your bath for a fresh look. A new bath mat is an easy way to spruce up the floor.
Adding insulation to your home not only will help lower utility bills, but will also help to make your home more comfortable. Don’t forget to seal windows and doors with caulk or weatherstripping. And, if you haven’t done so already, consider installing a programmable thermostat.
