One of the benefits of homeownership is that you can change up your house whenever you feel like it. Although it can be difficult to know where to begin, you can save a lot of money if you take on these projects by yourself.
Here are some home improvement tips to help spruce up your home:
Fixing a Hole
Do you need to fix a hole in your wall made by a nail or screw? Create a divot in the wall with the rounded end of a screwdriver by pressing it into the screw hole. Next, use spackle or drywall compound to fill the divot. This will give you a nice smooth wall surface.
Most people don’t need their exterior lights lit until they come home from work or when the sun goes down. Consider installing an outdoor motion detector for your outside lighting. This way, your exterior lights will only turn on when they are activated— and not all day or all night.
Resurface Your Walkways and Driveway
An easy way to increase your curb appeal is by resurfacing the concrete walkways and driveways of your house. Consider resurfacing with cobblestone or brick, which will ultimately cost you a fraction of replacing concrete, and will still look like a million bucks.
