Spring is about to spring onto Atlanta. All of this rain certainly makes for lush growth outside, and a lot of wear and tear on our homes inside. Whether you are thinking of selling your house, or just want clear out the winter doldrums with some new life, the projects below will not only brighten your home, but may brighten your mood as well.
Create curb appeal. First impressions are the most important! And creating curb appeal will go a long way to giving a great first impression. Projects that make your home inviting to others have a huge impact.
- Paint and update or replace your front door. An updated color can have just as huge an effect as replacing your door at a fraction of the cost.
- Clean up the front yard. If you have a front yard, make sure it is neat and inviting. Clear out dead bushes, trees and brush. Replace plants as needed. Grass is cost effective and easy to maintain. Repair or replace cracked sidewalks, driveways and hardscapes. Use seasonal planting around front entrance.
For a dramatic impact inside, you don’t have to have a top of the line kitchen remodel. Homeowners actually get more bang for their buck by doing small to moderate renovations in the kitchen and bathrooms. Replace, repaint, or cleanup cabinet doors and boxes, update countertops, replace appliances with more energy efficient ones, replace the sinks and faucets. Updated lighting and flooring ALWAYS makes a huge difference!
Of course, putting a fresh coat of paint on the walls, and either cleaning or replacing older carpet helps a home feel fresh, clean and up to date.
