Looking to freshen up your home’s look before hot weather gets here and still have money left over for summer fun? Here are three quick ways to achieve a fresh, new look for three different areas of your home without spending as much as you would think.
1. Revamp Kitchen Cabinets
Painting or refinishing your solid-wood kitchen cabinets and adding new hardware will completely change the look of your cabinets without the huge cost and trouble involved in buying replacement cabinets. Painting can give your cabinets a dramatically different look in exchange for some elbow grease and relatively little money.
The prep-work is straightforward: Empty the cabinets, remove the hardware, clean and lightly sand the surfaces you will be painting, protect the countertop and other areas from paint splatter, and you are good to go. Use the same technique to transform wood furniture as well- like that dresser you’ve had since your college days.
2. Stir Things Up with Fresh Paint
Painting is an inexpensive way to change the look of any room. You can totally change the color palette of the room, or add an accent wall to keep the same color scheme while adding flair.
Even just painting the ceiling can seriously brighten up a room, especially if your ceiling is white and hasn’t seen a fresh coat in a few years. You can get a quality gallon of interior paint for around $30, which will cover about 300 to 400 square feet.
Lots of web sites have paint calculators to help you figure out how much you will need to buy. While one coat of good-quality paint is often sufficient, use additional coats if you are covering a darker color with a lighter one, or using a dramatic color such as red.
With warmer weather on its way, we are all looking forward to enjoying the outdoors. But algae, moss, mold and mildew on outdoor surfaces such as the roof, deck, awning, or side of the house isn’t nice to look at, and algae on walking surfaces such as patios or stepping-stones can cause a slip hazard for you and your guests.
Spray Wet & Forget on outdoor surfaces for an inexpensive, easy, environmentally-friendly way to make your outdoor surroundings more beautiful and summer party-ready. Also use Wet & Forget to remove mildew from lawn furniture to prepare for summer barbecues.
