It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…
Christmas is in less than week! Which means you’re either finished with your Christmas shopping or close to it. You’ve got your friends and family checked off, but what about your house? Freshen up your home with any of these ideas, or if you’ve been thinking about selling this upcoming year, these can also help increase your return on investment!
A fresh coat of paint
One of the more affordable ways to give your house a new look is by painting. Freshen up the interior walls with a new layer of paint – stick with the same color as before or go with a brand-new color! Brighten up a room with a light neutral color, or make a tight room feel larger with a cool-toned color. Looking for inspiration? Check out the colors of 2022 here.
Sometimes you can get away with repairing or resealing your windows to stop a draft, but other times, it’s worth it to go ahead and get new windows installed. Opt for style and bolster curb appeal with some black window frames that are trending in homes today. Help keep your cooled and heated air from escaping your home by having energy-efficient windows installed. New windows not only update your homes exterior look, but also yield a high rate for return on investment!
A New Sofa
Couches get used a lot. While they typically last anywhere from 7 to 15 years, sometimes they can start to show signs of wear and tear by fading, fraying, and creaking. Revamp your living room with minimal effort by purchasing a new sofa! Furniture stores often have holiday sales going on, so you’re bound to find a good deal. If you’re thinking about selling your home, you won’t have to sell the couch along with it, but it’ll help with staging!
Floors are first thing people see when they enter your home, and they’re the most used thing in your house. After a while, your carpets can start to look dingy and dirty, and your wood floors can start to get dinks in them. This year, get some new flooring installed! If you’ve been wanting to get new carpet or those sought-after hardwood floors that run throughout the entire house, go for it! If hardwood flooring is out of your price range, there are still tons of options available that will give you the look of hardwood without breaking the bank.
Who doesn’t want their home to feel sale? Technology has made it easy to make sure your home is secure. With a doorbell camera installed, you can keep an eye on your front porch; you’ll be able to see who’s ringing your doorbell without being home, if your significant other has been online shopping again, and have some peace of mind knowing what’s always going on around your home.
