When you buy your new home, it’s almost like the phrase, “you can’t have your cake and eat it too.” Moving into your new home is an exciting time, but it can also be expensive! At Capitol Moving & Storage, we move families each and every day. While we see many things that are worth investing a lot of finances in, we also see opportunities for families to tackle some DIY projects in their new home that won’t cost an arm and a leg. Below are a few projects that you can tackle yourself and save big money!
Painting can be expensive. If you are willing to put in the hours, however, paint can go a long way! Paint can brighten up any room and make a dramatic impact on your space. Whether you plan to paint the entire house or just want to focus on simple accent walls, painting is an essential and inexpensive way to make your new house feel more like your home.
Changing out the Hardware
It’s so surprising how much the look and feel of a space can change when you do simple, cosmetic things to your home to make it pop. Especially true if you are buying an older home, perhaps changing the hardware on your doors and cabinets may have a significant effect on your home. Goodbye brass and hello sleek, beautiful brushed nickel. Whatever you decide to do, the best part about DIY is that it doesn’t all have to be done at once. Take your time and just replace doorknobs, cabinet fixtures, and even light fixtures whenever you have the time and money.
There are so many ways to give your floors a facelift nowadays. Whether you want to DIY and put down new flooring or replace your tile with a beautiful paint and linoleum finish, doing these tasks yourself can save you a tremendous amount of money. You can create an entirely new look and feel for a room with minimal output.
Exterior of the Home
It only seems right to do the exterior of your home yourself! Cleaning up your yard and giving your home a nice power washing can go a long way in the look and feel of your home. After all, the exterior is the first thing you see when you pull up to your home and these upgrades should make for a great impression. Don’t let it break the bank though, simply cleaning it up and adding greenery will do wonders.
