3 Practical Home Improvement Ideas

Monday, March 30, 2020

Want to improve the appearance and value of your home? There’s no time like the present to complete some home renovation tasks! Follow these three tips to choose home improvement projects that will give you the best bang for your buck.

Replace Flooring
Nothing dates a house like old-fashioned, worn out flooring. Repair, patch or clean any areas of carpet that are damaged or dirty, and replace carpets entirely if your budget allows. If anyone in your household has allergies, it’s recommended to replace carpet with allergy-friendly hardwood flooring. Choose any of the quality hardwoods from Monarch Plank Windsor Collection to beautify and add value to your home. Hardwood floors are also much easier to maintain and keep clean than carpet.

Install a Security System
If you’re looking to increase your feelings of safety in your home, consider installing a home security system. A comprehensive security system, including alarms and cameras, is recommended to provide you and your family with peace of mind. If you decide to install cameras, make sure to place them strategically both inside and outside the home. This will deter any potential criminal activity or provide visual evidence after the fact should something unexpected happen. Several modern security systems also link to your smartphones, tablets or other technology, allowing you to keep a close watch on your home and your property even when you’re not at home. Having a safe home is appealing for all homeowners, so you’ll add value to your property no matter which system you choose to install.

Increase Your Curb Appeal
One of the best ways to add value to your home is by increasing curb appeal. If your house is looking a little drab, liven it up with a fresh coat of paint. Don’t forget to paint the trim and the front door in a color that contrasts well with the primary color of your home. Take some time to spruce up your landscape by mowing the grass and planting climate-appropriate flowers and plants. Trim back any bushes or trees that are touching your home or obstructing any windows. In addition, make minor repairs to cracks or damage to any concrete driveways or walkways. This not only improves the appearance of your home; it makes your property safer for your family and all guests.

Home improvement projects often require investments of time, money and labor. If you choose your renovations carefully, your investment will not only make your home more comfortable and attractive, it will also increase its value.
