Common home improvement renovations for spring
Posted on Monday, March 19, 2012 at 3:02:02 PM
It's time to throw those windows open wide and let that crisp spring air inspire you to tackle a home improvement project. A do-it-yourself mentality could make your money go further if you have the experience and tools to get the job done right. If not, consider home improvement loans to finance your spring-time projects.
"Giving your home some added curb appeal with an exterior makeover will automatically boost the resale value of your property," said Jeff Kaliner, Power's Founding Partner. "If you plan to stay put, focus on cost effective renovations that make your home more comfortable, functional and low maintenance for your family. Either way, enhancing your home this spring will help protect your greatest investment."
Here are two home renovations you may want to consider:
1. Paint exterior home accents. Repainting the entire house is an expensive undertaking that requires professionals. However, repainting the front door or shutters a fun pop of color is a simple weekend chore that can make a big difference in the appearance of your home.
2. Accent lighting. Add a few simple lamps to walkways or clean and fix a lamp or sconce that hangs next to the entrance of a home for a quick and simple update to your property. It will increase your safety as well as make the property seem warm and inviting.
