We all have been there. No matter why you want to update your home, you want to do it this year since last year you put off multiple projects that were planned for your house. Well, you’re not alone considering most people continue to put off things they were going to do, like adding a deck or patio, fixing the roof, organizing the garage, or installing new windows.
We get it, though. Life happens. Time gets away. You don’t have the right tools. You couldn’t find the right help when you needed it. Whether you consider these excuses or legitimate reasons for not updating your home like you wanted, ultimately you want to get around to doing it this year.
So, check out what suggestions we have on making your home look a lot nicer. Some take a little more work, some take a little more money.
We’re not suggesting you install a completely new window into a part of your home that has none. Rather, you should replace older windows if they’re over ten years old. A lot of windows could probably last longer, but at that point they begin to let heat slip out more easily and let drafts in.
A new or replaced window is the perfect time to get a different style, too. Whether you want windows that open up or even slide, now’s your chance to experiment with something new.
Perhaps you don’t have a green thumb like I do, but you can still try to plant some flowers, herbs, or succulents in your home with relative ease. The good thing is that you don’t have to worry much about pests getting into your garden indoors. And usually, these plants are easy to take care of and only need so much sunlight to survive. Having plants inside your home will also serve to filter your air and spruce up your place with some liveliness.
Home entertainment system
This will completely transform your living room if you get a nice one. Heck, you don’t even have to shill out the money for one if you’re crafty enough to build your own. Entertainment systems are every man’s dream, though, so if you or your husband even remotely likes tech and game days, think about updating your living room to bring it all together. There’s more shelving space once you have one, it can hold multiple consoles or TVs or soundbars, and it really ties in the look of a room you watch TV in.
