4 Small Upgrades To Make To Your Home This Summer
Summer is quickly approaching, and we can safely put the long, cold winter behind us. As the weather get’s warmer, It’s time to start thinking about undertaking some home improvement projects.
Your home is an ongoing project – you work at it over time to achieve the desired look. Making improvements to your home can also boost your property’s curb appeal and resale value.
Below are 4 small upgrades you can make your your home this summer:
Any good interior decorator will tell you that one of the best ways to upgrade your home, and to add tremendous value, is to get new windows. New windows can take years – even decades – off the look of your home. With so many great styles and materials on the market, there is something out there for every budget.
Perhaps the second most important improvement you can make to your home this summer would be to invest in new doors. Aside from new windows, a new entry door does wonders for your home, both in terms of curb appeal and overall aesthetic. A new, modern, beautifully finished door speaks volumes about the quality of your home.
People often forget about the importance of good gutters. We often forget that by redirecting debris and water away from our roof and the sides of our home, our gutters are potentially saving us thousands of dollars in damage – and the hassle of repairs. If you do not have gutters, or your current gutters have been working overtime during a particularly harsh, wet, snowy winter, replacing them will go a long way to keeping your home protected without breaking the bank.
A new coat of paint
New windows, doors and gutters plus a new coat of paint equals a new home. A new coat of paint can make a drab, weather worn house look brand new. Depending on the size of your home, it does not cost a tremendous amount of money to have the outside touched up. You can even go with an entirely new colour to make it feel like you are living in a completely different home.
The summer is short, so you should make hay while the sun shines. If you are looking for some cheaper upgrades to make to your home this summer, keep the above four examples in mind and start the fall with a home that looks great but doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg to upgrade.
