Whether you want to spiff up your home to sell or merely wish to add to your own comfort and enjoyment, home improvements are a great way to achieve both objectives. If you dread the thought of all the time and money that goes into home improvement projects, take courage – there are quite a few ways to update your home without breaking the bank or consigning all your weekends to home improvement drudgery.
Here are just a few shared by your favorite Columbus roofer, Muth & Company Roofing:
- Light up your space. If you really want to make an impression without spending a lot of money, an eye-catching light fixture displayed in a prominent area of your home is just the ticket. Try adding some elegant sconces in your main living area, or spend a few hundred dollars on an inexpensive chandelier to really make an impact in your entryway, dining room or living room.
- Switch up your colors. Probably the easiest and least expensive way to perk up your home is with a new coat of paint on your walls and trim. There are so many directions you can go – fun, bold, playful, elegant, calming – whatever suits your fancy. If you are planning on selling, it’s best to keep to a more neutral palette which will appeal to a wider variety of people. The great thing about paint is that it can be used to update pretty much everything: cabinets, furniture, decks, fences and even lamps!
- Add style to your bathroom. There’s no reason that the bathroom, which is one of the most frequently visited rooms in the house, has to be ugly and utilitarian. With a few simple changes, you can make a plain bathroom stylish and inviting. You could install a unique bathroom mirror, add a pretty tile backsplash, or swap out outdated bathroom fixtures for ones with a more modern style and finish. To take things a step further, consider replacing inefficient toilets, faucets and showerheads with more energy-efficient versions that conserve water. Just make sure the finishes on all your fixtures match!
Don’t Forget Roof Maintenance
Another thing that isn’t necessarily a home improvement, but is extremely important for keeping your home in the best shape possible, is the regular care and maintenance of your roof. Just like a car, your roof needs annual maintenance to keep it performing at its best so you don’t end up paying for roof repairs that could’ve been avoided in the first place.
At Muth & Company, we offer an Extended Service Plan that includes a complete roof inspection and tune-up every year. Starting at just $275, you can’t go wrong including our Extended Service Plan on your yearly home maintenance schedule.
