You want to give your home a new look and upgrade without breaking the bank, we share the same sentiments too and we’ll be sharing how you can winter-proof your home and give it a face lift.
Here a few Home Improvement Ideas for Winter
Block Leaks and Air Openings: You can block out air openings, seams around windows with caulk and waterproof sealant. Insulating your home will increase your comfort, help you become more energy efficient, reduce dust and also gives you a better temperature control.
Get a New Paint Job: A fresh coat of paint will give your home a new ambience. The dry and cold air will also ensure that your paint dries faster. It’s advised that you use bright colors as darker rooms might not be illuminated by sunlight during winter season.
Work on The Attic and Basement: We sometimes tend to overlook the attic and the basement in our home upgrade efforts. Insulating your attic makes your home more energy efficient and increases humidity control during winter. You should look to cover leaks in the basement.
Upgrade The exterior: You can replace or refurbish the exterior doors. If you don't want to go above budget, you can simply repaint your doors, add molding, new door knobs or some Christmas Décor will give your home a new look. You can also trim off old trees and give your frontage a new look.
Get a programmable Thermostat: This will help you customize the temperature in your home according to your needs and also help you automatically regulate the temperature too. You also have the option of remotely adjusting the temperature.
