Welcome to 2021! Hopefully, this year will be a welcome change from 2020. Last year was full of new experiences for literally the whole world. Many of us suffered and struggled through, whereas many of us experienced great growth and success. Regardless of how your 2020 shaped up to be, a new year always brings a sense of possibility. It seems like the new year makes me think of ways I want to improve my house!
Brighten up a tired room with some new paint!
A new coat of paint here and there always makes me happy; We bought our house 3 years ago, and I am still painting it! I like to take my time and slowly make each room more and more my own. Even if you have all the rooms in your home painted, you can always change it up for under $100, or just put a new coat on a room that has gotten a little dingy.
Rethink the trim on your house
This year we are going to be replacing all the trim on the house. Since we are doing this, we will obviously be choosing a new color for the trim. Even if your trim is in good condition, you can radically update your house’s look by just painting the trim! By cleaning up your exterior’s accent, you can make your house look newly beautiful by just switching up the colors a bit. Repainting your home is expensive and can be stressful. But by just repainting your trim every once and a while, your home can get a new lease on life. It’sIt’s kind of like changing up your favorite shade of lipstick!
Lawn and Order
One of the biggest things I notice when looking at houses in the lawn. When a house has a plot of gorgeous grass in the front yard, the whole house looks nicer. Fresh, green grass makes your home look welcoming and well taken care of. A couple of bags of weed and feed can get your existing grass to a place where it is lush and soft. But if you want to go hard or go home, you can do the whole nine yards, aerate, reseed, and fertilize. Your lawn will be a sparkling emerald gem just waiting for G&T’sG&T’s to be drunk in the yard with a friend or two.
Paint your Garage Door
This could be tied in with the first idea, but repainting your garage door with a fresh coat of paint is a great way to make your home feel new and exciting. Pick a bright, clean color or go dark and bold for an eye-catching pop. Either way Is a great way to freshen up the look of your home.
I’m always planting new flowers and changing up the landscape of my yard. I love planting different types of annuals as well as some classic favorites. It’sIt’s always exciting to plant new and different things like garden blooms throughout the spring and summer. I make sure to plant some that will show ample fall color so that I can enjoy the gorgeous color well into the year!
