Take some time off your weekends to indulge in these fun upgrades and you’re sure to love it!
Make leaving and entering less troublesome.
Keys, locks and other essentials tend to get misplaced quite a bit. And sometimes it sucks to have to go all the way into the house for something you wish you could’ve left at the door. Since an entry closet can cost a ton, here’s a simple and easy fix for your problems. Scour a few furniture shops till you find a narrow table with tons of drawers. Label the drawers as necessary and prop it up against the wall next to your door. This way, you can keep a lot of items at hand without the risk of losing them.
Extend a warmer welcome.
Regardless of how cheery the inside of your house is, visitors and even guests bearing gifts can be put off from entering if your entrance is gloomy and dull. The mood created by a lively entrance can affect your day as well. So wait for an off day and grab a paint brush. Painting your front wall in bright colors like red, yellow, blue or green, or even a mix of those colors and white, can really spice up your entrance.
Let it rain over your house.
If you live in an area with a lot of trees, you probably cringe at the thought of rainy and fall seasons. Because rain means hours upon hours of clinging for your life to a ladder, pulling out disgusting piles of rotten leaves from your gutter. It’s not uncommon to fall off and break your back while you’re at it. That’s where gutter protection systems come in. Have some cover for your gutter.
Contact a company that deals in gutter protection systems and get one installed, and not a single leaf, nor twig nor rodent, will ever terrorize your gutters again.
Flag those stones!
If you’ve ever wanted an outdoor patio but never had the time to deal with the mortar and cement, go with the “non-stick” approach. Measure out the area of your potential patio and go buy some flagstones. Pack them shoulder to shoulder and place some potted plants around the perimeter. Top off with an elegant set of chairs and a table, and you have your own homemade patio.
If you’ve gone through the above stuff and simply love every bit, then put in some effort and discover some more of the vast range of exciting additions to your home!
