Many of us have been spending a lot more time at home this year, and with the cold winter months just around the corner, things probably aren’t going to change any time soon.
But instead of resigning yourself to weeks of cabin fever, why not take advantage of the time spent indoors to work on a few home improvement projects instead?
Not only could you increase the value of your home, but you’ll also feel incredibly proud of yourself for getting things done!
Here’s 3 home improvement projects that are a great idea to start before winter arrives:
Install new carpet
With several flooring options to choose from, finding the perfect one for your home can prove to be quite the challenge. But few options provide the same warmth and comfort that carpet has to offer.
As a tremendous insulator, carpet will help to keep heat trapped in your home and reduce the cost of your energy bills. Plus, it can also minimise noise levels by absorbing sound rather than reflecting it.
Redecorate your walls
Whether you want to inject a new lease of life into your living room or your bedroom needs brightening up, a fresh coat of paint can do just the job. Not only will it instantly transform a room, redecorating the walls is also relatively inexpensive, straightforward to do and easy to fix should anything go wrong!
But before you grab your roller and get started, make sure to plan ahead and schedule your repainting on a dry day so that you can easily ventilate the room and speed up the drying process.
Invest in windows and doors
Nothing can prepare your home for the harsh winter weather like a new set of windows and doors. Nobody wants to feel a cold draught in their home at this time of year, and so it’s important to ensure you have energy efficient windows and doors to keep the cool air out.
If your windows and doors are over 10 years old, they may not be insulating your home as well as they once used to, which could be a sign that you may need to get them replaced.
