5 Home Projects to Tackle in the New Year

The new year is here and now is the perfect time to tackle some home projects. In the winter, you are likely to be indoors more than any other time of year. So why not start 2018 off right by making some improvements? You are guaranteed to be happier in your home by doing the following tasks.

Clean Your Garage

Cluttered garage

Many people tend to overlook their garages. Often they can be used for storage or get cluttered with all sorts of things. Your garage may even get to the point where you can’t park your car in it. Take some time to organize things and get rid of items you don’t use. Purchasing some containers or shelving units can be a great way to use space efficiently.

Make Over Old Furniture

Empty chair

Show some TLC to a piece, or pieces of furniture that need it. Fix that wobbly chair, give a makeover to a table, dresser, chair, etc by sanding it and putting a fresh coat of paint on it. You will be amazed at the difference it can make.

Wash Your Windows

Windows collect dirt and dust over time. Give your windows a good cleaning inside and out. Getting them shiny and clean will allow light to come in and brighten up those drab winter days.

Give Your Home Curb Appeal

Garden and stair case

This project can take some time but is well worth it. Making sure your home looks good on the outside will not only allow you to enjoy it more but will improve the value of it when you are ready to sell. Repaint your front door or shutters, add some flowers to your yard, improve your lighting. Keep your yard mowed and well maintained.

Purge and Organize Your Closets

We all dread the annual closet cleaning but now is a great time to go ahead and organize your closets. Purge those clothes and shoes that you have not worn and donate them to someone who can use them. While your at it, organize your pantry as well. Your home will never feel better.
