Although the weather might not feel like it, summer is here and whether you plan on selling your Carmel, IN home or you just want to improve your home, now is the perfect time! Take advantage of the recent cool weather to get some home improvement done around your Carmel, IN home. Does the thought of DIY home improvement scare you? Here are a few easy projects that you can easily complete in a day!
Switch the hardware. Sometimes it’s easiest to begin with the front of the house rather than what’s inside, especially if you’re on a tight budget. Changing the front doorknob and lock is a quick update that only takes a few minutes and can complement the style of the house.
Brighten the lights. Another quick, simple way to brighten your home is by changing the lights in the front yard. Feel free to purchase new ones, or better yet, clean and re-paint the ones you already have.
Upgrade your house numbers. House numbers and address plaques are another quick outside update that can make a big difference in your Carmel, IN home. With the proper placement, they can make your house easier to find—not a bad thing when trying to sell—and the right style of numbers can help play up its architecture.
Paint a piece of furniture. A fresh coat of paint can make old furniture feel new. Anything from bookcases to shelves to nightstands is an easy project, and if you mess up, so what? Just paint it again.
Install a fan. Installing a fan doesn’t take more than a few hours and is an inexpensive way to add interest to a room. Just remember to keep it simple and not too trendy.
Change the cabinet hardware. Changing the cabinet hardware can make a huge difference in the look and feel of your kitchen. Popular choices are nickle or brushed stainless steel.
