Home improvements not only give a nice feeling of homeliness, but it also adds a special addition, making you and your family enjoy the home more than before. Sometimes, simple upgrades are all it takes for a home to be beautiful and enjoyable. Today’s post discusses some amazing tips on how to improve your home. And no, it doesn’t have to break the bank.
1. Go with Fresh Paintwork
Nothing brightens up spaces from the inside out like fresh paint does. It gives a surface that instant clean look and will do a longer-lasting hob than just power spraying it clean. There’s nothing wrong with a power wash, however, this is a great option if you’re low on budget. But if you can afford to go with paint, then choose new paint instead of a power wash during the year for that additional clean finish.
2. Choose Large Windows and More Windows
Installing more windows and opting for large windows are a great way to bring light into your home. Natural light is one of the nicest ways to get that warm, natural, cozy feeling in your home. Let’s face it: there is something welcoming and soothing about natural sunlight flowing into an indoor space. It brings that sense of nature into the home and naturally warms up the space.
3. Enhance the Garden
If you have a nice big garden, now would be an excellent time to clean it up and make it shine once again. With time, trees and plants can become overgrown, and simply trimming, pruning, and doing some maintenance is all it takes to refine this beautiful space. If you have a yard, you can opt to get landscaping work done since landscaping can also increase the value of the home.
According to IBISWorld, the market size, when measured by revenue, of the Tree Trimming Services industry has grown to $29.8bn in 2023. You can imagine how many properties use tree trimming, gardening and landscaping to their advantage.
4. Improve the rest of the Outdoors
If your property is large, you’ll have lots of space outside and bare space tends to look plain with nothing giving it that boost it needs to look its best. Why not upgrade your yard spaces in the front and the back?
You could add some hardscaping with a fire pit to cozy up on winter evenings. You could also designate a dedicated outdoor entertainment space somewhere. Add some outdoor furniture and lighting to give your exterior that extra jump start it needs. Don’t forget about changing or at the very least cleaning up the siding as this is often great for better curb appeal.
5. Replace the Roof
An investment to bring you nearly 60% and more of your ROI back is replacing a roof. Roofs can be expensive to replace, still, the ROI is worth it because when you resell your home, you can get that money back or most of it.
Do be certain to get the professionals in to install the new roof since it can be a hazardous job. According to Roofers Guild, roof installers die at the fifth-highest rate in work-related construction accidents.
Bonus Tip: Invest in a Septic Tank
Septic tanks are a great investment as they will dramatically reduce your water bill since you won’t need to rely on the state’s water supply. Hence, you can use a septic tank for your off-the-grid solution. It will also increase the value of your home. According to Bob Vila, septic tanks should be pumped and emptied every three to five years, which means you don’t have to spend as much money on maintenance if you’re taking consistent care through the proper use of it.
