While spring is just around the corner, we have already seen quite a bit of spring weather in Birmingham over the past couple of months. With great weather comes the desire to tackle spring cleaning and home improvement projects. So if you've already finished all of your spring cleaning, here are some fairly simple and inexpensive weekend home improvement projects:
1. Update Hardware:
This is one of the easiest things you can do to make a big impact in your home. You can either purchase new hardware to replace the old or you can spray paint your current hardware. Most older homes have gold hardware on cabinets and doors while most newer homes have bronze or nickel colored fixtures.
2. Build a Garden:
A well maintained garden will improve your home's curb appeal and give you something beautiful to look at. It doesn't matter how much space you have, as long as the area receives plenty of sunlight. Find some cool old pieces of wood to box it in and be sure to water it daily.
3. Paint Your Front Door:
You can either remove the door and paint it or leave it in place, it's up to you. Put painter's tape around the hardware, choose an eye-catching color, and paint away! Depending on the color of your home and the color you choose to paint the door, you can give your home an entirely new look in a matter of hours!
4. Install New Faucets:
Once again, this simple task can update your entire kitchen or bathroom. Be sure you find out exactly what type of faucets you currently have so you'll know which sizes you need to buy. Gather all the necessary tools, turn off the water supply, and replace the old with the new. You'll immediately add some shine to your room and give your sink a classier feel.
5. Minor Exterior Repairs:
Take a walk around the outside of your home to inspect the siding, deck, windows, gutters, and what you can see of your roof. Take care of any of the small things you uncover, and make a note of any issues you find that need to be addressed by a professional contractor. If you notice damaged or curling shingles, bare patches on your roof, damaged gutters, or just anything that doesn't look right, schedule a roof inspection with an experienced roofing contractor.
