When it comes to home improvement projects, not everything has to be a huge endeavor that involves permits, contractors or equity loans! Some projects can be completed in hours rather than days, and with only a small investment. Today we’re breaking down three great home improvement projects you can knock out in a day apiece.
It doesn’t take much to make your house look a lot better. Let’s get your house to be the talk of the neighborhood!
High Tech – Smart Home Hub!
Want to make your home a high-tech hub of all things awesome? Get a smart home center like Amazon Echo or Google Home. These allow you to consolidate your smart home devices, like smart locks and smart bulbs, and command them all from the same device.
Using your voice to change the mood lighting or unlock the door is a pretty impressive feat, and it makes everything so much easier. Need the oven to preheat? Voice command. Want to change the temperature? Call out to the smart thermostat. If you can hook it up to the internet, you can command it with your voice.
Curb Appeal – Flower Bed!
Planting a flower bed in your front yard can class the place up considerably in one day. All you need is a bag of sod, a shovel, some bricks and a bit of elbow grease. Dig out a spot for the flower bed and give it a perimeter with the bricks, making it look classy and rural.
Then, simply lay the sod and plant some flowers from the local garden store. Like that, you’ve got a classy, natural look to your home. As the seasons change, you can change out the flowers to match. Next thing you know, you’re known as the house with the gorgeous flowers!
Sophisticated Beauty – Vanity Exterior Lighting
If you love the way your house looks, why not show it off? Installing a few exterior floodlights is great for a number of reasons. For one thing, it makes your place look great at night. Everyone in the neighborhood can look out and see how great your siding and brickwork look.
The other great reason for outdoor lighting is that it makes your home less likely to be burglarized. If the whole place is lit up like Christmas, it’s unlikely that any burglar is going to try to sneak in. They’ll be under a spotlight immediately!
