5 Home Improvement Ideas for the New Year

It’s nearly 2021 and with a new year comes a fresh start. With that said, why not find some time to go through those home improvement project you’ve been putting off? Here are 5 ideas to get you started: 

Improve Energy Efficiency 

If you’re looking for ways to make your home more environmentally friendly, while simultaneously reducing your utility bills, start by swapping out your old halogen bulbs for LED alternatives and adding a smart thermostat. To ensure you keep the heat in over the winter months, seal any air leaks around your doors and windows and make sure you have adequate insulation in the loft.

Renovate Your Hallway 

Since your front porch or hallway is the first thing you (and your guests) see when you enter your home, you’ll want to make sure its inviting and orderly. Perhaps give the walls a fresh coat of paint, replace the flooring with wood/laminate so it’s easier to clean after someone has walked in with muddy or wet shoes, and look into some ways to keep your shoes and coats neat and tidy.

Update Your Kitchen 

Assess the condition of your appliances, including your fridge/freezer, oven, dishwasher, and microwave. Most modern appliances are not manufactured to last longer than 10 years so it might be time to replace a few things. If you want to go all out, get in touch with a bespoke fitted kitchen company and revamp your cabinets for extra storage. 

Add Some Artwork 

An easy way to brighten up your home is to add some colourful artwork on some of the blank walls. This doesn’t have to be expensive and is a great way to make your home feel like a brand-new space without really having to do too much. Draw out the colours in the art with matching soft furnishings like rugs, cushions and curtains.

Have a Clear-out 

If budgets are tight, one of the easiest ways to improve the look and feel of your home is to purge any unwanted/unused items that are taking up unnecessary space. You might be able to sell some of your items online or at a car boot sale to make some money, but the real benefit of having a clear-out is that it will make your home feel so much tidier and more spacious.
