With isolation and social distancing becoming the norm, more and more people are looking for ways to occupy their time. Those free evenings and weekends can be used for some of the home improvement projects we have always wanted to do.
Here are some suggestions for projects that can be tackled during this time:
- Lighting: Replacing unflattering and outdated light fixtures can make the home feel brighter and more modern. It’s also a great time to get some energy-efficient light bulbs that will last longer and save money.
- Organize the pantry: The pantry is probably one of the most visited spaces now that we are home a lot more. Organize the pantry with additional shelving, slide-out baskets, and extra lighting to make the items more visible and the pantry less messy.
- Painting: Been putting off painting a room or two that need a touch-up or just a new look? This is a great time to pick up that paintbrush. Try some textured paint, cool designs for accent walls, or even a chalkboard which could be fun for kids especially now that they are distance learning.
- Front door: Tired of that boring dull front door? Give it a fresh coat of paint or even a new fun cheerful color, this will not only brighten up the house but it will also make the home stand out.
All these home improvement projects not only keep you busy while checking off items on the to-do list, but it can also add value to a home. Remember, all the items needed can be purchased online to avoid having to leave home. Raleigh Cary Realty hopes you and your family stay safe and healthy as we do our part to flatten the curve. Truly, we will get through this together.
