Whether you’ve been putting off that honey do list for way too long or you’re a professional in the construction and home improvement field, the beginning of the new year is a great time to start some much needed home improvement projects! Here are our top five new year home improvement projects!
  1. Clean and de-clutter.

    This first one may be more of a spring cleaning project rather than a home improvement, but de-cluttering the house is an important task that needs to be done every once in a while. It is an easy way to instantly make your home feel bigger and nicer. Plus, the extra space makes it easier to do other home improvement projects.

  2. Install an organization system.

    This, in addition to getting rid of the extra clutter, will help open up space and make the home appear cleaner and more finished. Areas that usually need some extra organization are the bathroom, kitchen, and playroom.

  3. Pick a room to paint.

    Something as simple as changing up the color of a room can make it seem more open, more cheerful, or even more fun. It is a cheap way to change up the style of one of your rooms in your house. Don’t know what color to pick? Grab a couple of sample colors from the store and paint some swatches on your wall. That way you can see what the color looks like when it dries and in different types of light.

  4. Replace old windows and doors.

    This can make your home more energy efficient, thus lowering your utility bills. Replacing old windows and doors with ones that have better seals will not only give your home a fresh look, but it will also save you money throughout the year since it is more energy efficient.

  5. Renovate your bathroom or kitchen.

    Chances are one of those rooms could use an update. If you’re a DIYer but this is beyond your capabilities, hiring a professional will save you a lot of time and frustration. It will most likely look a lot better as well. Kitchens and bathrooms are important features of a home so updating them will not only increase the value of your home, but it will help it feel more luxurious as well.
