Most homeowners take pride in their home and want to do whatever possible to keep it up-to-date and a nice space to live. However, not every homeowner has a lot of free time on their hands to take on home improvement projects. If you’re pressed for time but still want to make some simple improvements to your home, check out these 4 home improvement projects you can tackle in just 1-hour:
- Clean up your front walkway.
Though this may not seem like the most exciting home improvement project, you will be amazed at how much the look and feel of your home will change when you take some time to show a little TLC to your front walkway. First, start by removing any debris and sweeping the area to get rid of dirt and other grime. Then, rent a power washer to get it nice and clean. You can attach the power washer to your hose, and start with it on the lowest pressure, increasing intensity as necessary. Make any other small fixes you may need to along the way such as adding a fresh coat of paint and patching up any cracks in the pavement.
- Put up curtains in any room.
Though finding just the right curtain for each room in your home may take time, installing window treatments can typically be completed in less than 1-hour. When purchasing curtains, curtain rods, and hardware, make sure that you get the right size for each of your windows. It helps if you write down the measurements before you go shopping. The perfect curtains can add a little more character to any room without taking up too much of your time.
- Create a weather-shielding canopy for your outdoor space.
Creating a more comfortable outdoor space is a worthwhile endeavor. However, some outdoor projects like building a deck or revitalizing your landscaping take time. If you only have an hour or so but want to spruce up your backyard, try building a canopy with a dropcloth and four poles. This will not only provide some shade for your outdoor space but will also help shield you from a sudden downpour. Not only is this a quick home improvement project, but it also costs much less than custom shading structures.
- Change the hardware on your cabinets.
Want to refresh your cabinets but don’t have the time or budget to completely replace them? Instead, try changing the hardware. Replacing your old cabinet hardware with new can help you give the cabinets a new look in only an hour. Once you’ve chosen the new hardware, all you’ll need is a screwdriver to remove the old materials and install the new hardware.
Not every home improvement project can be completed in just one hour. More complex projects may require you to call on your passions. If you need an HVAC repair or even just a routine maintenance service, give the HVAC experts at Sheldon's Heating & Air Conditioning’s a call: 877-274-1882.
