Spring is usually considered the best time of year to tackle some of those large exterior house projects which would have us running to the stores and calling for extra help. Currently, the best way we can help ourselves is to stay at home and work on simple upgrades around the house that are easy to complete. Just because some upgrades are simple doesn’t mean they won’t improve your space in a meaningful way.
Home improvement can refer to a large number of tasks and construction jobs in many different areas of your house. In this article we will focus on different ways you can maximize the home improvement process without breaking the bank. This means single solutions, addressing multiple issues, and ways to make the process gratifying and memorable.
Throughout any home, there are opportunities for home improvement everywhere. The time we spend in our spaces conditions us to the environment, resulting in problem areas going unnoticed. Here are a few simple solutions that apply to multiple rooms, require little time, and will get you excited!
Declutter- Removing personal belongings that take up space in common areas such as the kitchen and living room are simple ways to make your home feel light and breathable. Put things into cupboards or into a storage area. Clear surfaces will improve the look of your home.
Style your bookshelf – Clear out books, establish an organizational system and reshelve the books with ornate, eye-catching objects. The new shelf will be functional and appealing. This concept can be applied to kitchens and bathrooms.
Wax and polish floors – Revamp the open spaces in your home with floor wax or polish. White vinegar and olive oil can be used in place of polish if there is none around your home.
Add fresh paint – Use leftover paint to reimagine old furniture. Old brass lamps can be spray painted for a modern flair.
Accent Cushions – Add color or texture to any room by creating custom covers for throw cushions out of unused clothing. This promotes recycling and is a fun way to teach the family to sew!
Maximize the Experience
You can maximize the improvement experience by completing these chores with family members and others you have living at home. This can help to reduce the stress associated with home improvement projects, not to mention the skills it teaches children.
Home improvement is a creative process that involves reinvisoning the feel of your home. Increasing involvement in this process will turn home improvement into an enjoyable activity creating a feeling of fulfillment within the household.
