Home Improvement Ideas for the New Year
2019 is officially here! The start of a new year is a perfect time to start planning for home improvement projects you want to complete. Now that the holiday excitement has died down, you can focus your energy and free time on projects around your house.
At Iceberg, we know the true value in investing time, money, and love into your home. Here are four home improvement ideas for the new year.
1. Upgrade Your Space
Home improvements not only add dollar signs to your home property value, but also elevate your way of living. Adding extra space helps to accommodate visitors or can even mean making more room for a growing family. You can also use home improvement projects to renovate an unused attic or basement for a multi-purpose office or game room retreat for the kids. Altering your home to fit more of your family’s needs helps to add more livable space and make everyone comfortable.
2. Cut Utility Costs
Not all home improvement projects include breaking down walls and building brand new kitchens. Smaller projects can still make a big impact on your standard of living. Some improvement projects can even lower the costs of monthly utility bills. Why not take the time to switch out those older appliances for ones that are more environmentally friendly? Upgrading to Energy Star appliances can be a better decision for your budget in the long run.
3. Improve Safety
Reduce accidents and injuries with simple upgrades and adjustments. Changing out faulty electrical outlets and having HVAC systems routinely maintained and updated are just a few ways you can help lower your chances of harm. Consider security upgrades like motion-activated outdoor lighting or doorbells with lock and camera features. If you have little ones on the way in 2019, child-proofing your home is definitely a top priority. No matter what your renovation budget looks like, there are always ways to cost-effectively improve the safety of your home.
4. Add Curb Appeal
It is no secret that good landscaping increases property value. Take some time this year to add outdoor elements; improving your curb appeal is never a bad thing. Plant some flowers, keep the grass cut and the hedges trimmed, and maybe add some interesting decorations or a water feature. Little touches like these will help you better enjoy your home while you live there and can help you sell it faster if you decide to move.
