When you think that your home is supposed to be your sanctuary, this is an unfortunate statistic. With the aim of addressing this, September has become National Home Improvement Month.
This is a consumer awareness campaign encouraging homeowners to #MAKEONECHANGE to their home, before the month is out, to make them fall in love with their property all over again.
Full details of how you can take part can be found on the National Home Improvement Month website.
Are you ready to take part? We have 3 projects that you could complete this month without becoming overwhelmed.
Refresh your kitchen cabinets
The kitchen is the heart of the home, we start the day here with breakfast and it’s where we gather at the end of the day to catch up with our families. If you’re looking for the right place to start making improvements, this is a space you’ll see the benefits of your work.
An easy project to take on is refreshing your kitchen cabinets. If they’re solid wood, sand them down and add a fresh coat of paint to give them an instant fresh look. If sanding them down isn’t an option you can simply reface them.
For a finishing touch to complete the transformation we recommend updating the hardware on your cabinets, you won’t believe the difference it makes.
Add removable wallpaper to a wall in the master bedroom
Removable wallpaper is a great shortcut to change the appearance and atmosphere of your master bedroom. Adding removable wallpaper to the wall behind your bed is the easiest way to add a feature wall to your room.
You heard us correctly, removable wallpaper is a ‘thing’!
You can get removable wallpaper in a range of colours and styles. From art deco to traditional florals there’s an option to suit everyone. It’s never been easier to experiment with different design trends, when you’re done with the wallpaper simply peel it off with no damage to your walls.
Tidy up and pretty up your front entrance
We’d like to think we don’t care about what other people think of our homes, unfortunately this just isn’t true. Everyone wants people to think well of their home and front garden, so why not make this your project for September?
Tidy up any grass and pull any weeds to make your front garden nice and neat. Add some plants to bring some colour into your front garden or if you don’t have the space, invest in some hanging baskets. It’s amazing the effect greenery can have on a space.
Once you’ve tackled the garden, why stop there? Getting a new door fitted, or repainting your current front door will help add some kerb appeal and transform your entrance.
If the one change you want to make to your home is too big for you to take on yourself and it involves a new door, or some other home improvement product, James Oliver can take on the challenge for you. Just contact us for assistance.
