In our busy and bustling lives, it’s hard to get those bigger projects at home done. Things just keep getting pushed to the side. One positive about quarantine is the increase in time at home we have to get things done.
Using our quarantine time in a productive way, you can finally get some of those home renovations done. Here are 5 simple home renovations, repairs, and remodels you can take care of.
1. Repaint or Refinish
A fresh coat of paint on your walls can change the whole feeling in a room. Maybe you want to add a pop of color to just one wall or even add textured or patterned wallpaper. Interior painting can be done on your own or with the help of a professional.
You might even consider painting some of your furniture items to change their look. This could cost you as little as one can of paint!
Painting the exterior of a home can really clean things up and add to your curb appeal. Exterior painting is a bit more technical and should most likely be done with the help of a professional.
You can also refinish your wood deck or fence. The weather is great for undertaking such a task. If you plan to repaint the exterior of your home or refinish a deck or fence, you should consider power washing services to prep.
2. Install a Water Filter
There are many people switching to water filtering devices at home because of tap water and purity concerns. You can ditch some of those plastic water bottles to help conserve and move towards eco-friendly solutions.
There are different types of water filtration systems that you can use at home. This improvement is fairly inexpensive. Systems start at around $20 and go up from there depending on the complexity.
3. Furnace Repair and Replacement
With winter approaching, it’s time to start thinking about your heat for those colder temperatures. You definitely don’t want those cold temperatures to catch you with a faulty heating system.
Be on top of it and make sure you’re prepared. You can even get furnace repair and replacement assessments over FaceTime to reduce your exposure during the quarantine. Costs will range depending on your specific needs.
This is a great time to start on those home repairs that you’ve been putting off as well.
4. Install a Back Splash
Installing a backsplash can help with your entire kitchen’s look. It will also help protect your walls from scum and stains. You can go with traditional tile or get a single sheet to put up, cutting back on the work.
This easy and quick home renovation costs you very little. It can be done on your own and start around $25 per square foot.
5. Change Your Front Entry
Paint your front door, add a walkway, power wash your sidewalk, add new house numbers, replace outdoor lighting, plant flowers, or decorate. There are so many things you can add to the front of your home that will have you proud to say you’re stuck there during the quarantine.
Depending on what you do, your costs could be very little.
