Start 2013 with a bang by getting onto those home improvement projects you decided you couldn’t do last year. Whatever your budget, there are plenty of ways you can get your house looking and feeling new again.
To get you started, our Hubbies are giving you some fresh ideas for around the home before the year gets away from you.
To start off the New Year, why not give your home a fresh coat of paint inside and out? Ask your local Hubby to come over and give you a quote on all the areas around the home that need refreshing. He can give you the best advice on colour schemes in areas such as the living room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom.
Renew the fence
Are you guilty of neglecting your fence? While a fence can give your home character, it also protects your property, so make it your resolution this year to repair, replace or renew your property’s boundary. If buying a new fence, consider noise pollution and neighbouring properties.
Install a patio
Do you cross your fingers and hope that it won’t rain every time you plan a barbecue? If so, maybe it’s time you got your local Hubby to build a covered patio for you. This is a great way to not only be able to enjoy your outdoor area more often, but it will add value to your property in the long term.
If you are on a tight budget here are some ways your house can still be restored without emptying the wallet.
Fill the cracks and rid the creaks
Get cracking this New Year and touch up minor wall cracks and creaking doors that remind you of a horror movie. These aren’t a threat to your home’s structure but they will impact your properties sale potential when you’re looking to sell.
If you’ve discovered cracks and creaks and don’t have the skills or the time to fix them up, give your local Hubby a call for some assistance.
Revive the Kitchen (without the overhaul)
Kitchens and bathrooms don’t need brand new countertops to look fresh and state-of-the-art. Instead, new drawer handles are all you need. You can find a range of options at your local home improvement store – ask your Hubby if you need a hand. And, as far as the installation goes, if you can handle a screwdriver you can tackle the work yourself. If this isn’t the case for you, give your local Hubby a call for a hand.
Tackling these jobs early in the year will guarantee a long time before you worry about your house again.
