Springtime is here! That means changes in weather, outdoor activities, and fashion. Why not start the new season with a little home improvement, too? There are several renovations that will make an old home look new that you could do this spring—may this be the season of change!
Old flooring is one of the things that date a home’s interior. You can tell what a house has been through just by looking at the floors. If yours aren’t telling the story you want, consider installing new ones this spring. Your place will look brand new with fresh hardwood or clean carpeting, and the transformation will amaze guests.
New Window Treatments
It’s easy to tell when you need new window treatments. Are the blinds stuck together? Are the curtains collecting dust? Did you spot a similar curtain pattern in your grandma’s house? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, it’s time to replace your window treatments. Start by researching different fabrics that complement your home’s design, or look for eco-friendlier options to bring your home into this century.
In an ideal world, you could throw out your old furniture when it becomes out of date. But this is expensive! Reupholstering old furniture to give it new life is much more cost-effective—and eco-friendly. Research the most popular types of upholstery fabric before shopping so that you can get something that’s “in” right now. Your trendiness will impress guests, who will feel like they just stepped into the pages of a magazine.
These renovations that will make an old home look new are perfect for springtime! None of these tasks are incredibly labor-intensive, and they’ll freshen up the place. So the next time you’re looking for something to do, take a look around the house. Could some traditional design elements use a little updating? If so, roll up your sleeves and get to work!
