New Year -- Fresh Start!

With a new year comes the goal of making improvements both to ourselves and within our lives. What better way to start then by freshening things in your home? 4 DIY projects to give your home value & keep your resolutions:

1.  Freshen up the backsplash.  You can instantly alter the aesthetics of your kitchen by sprucing up your backsplash. There are lots of creative options: tile, stainless steel, glass, chalkboard, or mosaics are all lovely selections. 

2.  Brighten up the cabinets.  Whether it’s your bathroom or your kitchen cabinets, adding a fresh coat of paint can make the room feel brand new while adding value to your home. This DIY project doesn’t take much time or money and gives a “pop” of colour to your room(s). 

3.  Increase your curb appeal.  Make a good first impression! Paint your front door, change the address numbers, add a unique knocker, and repair or paint the exterior trim. This is DIY that can make your home feel new again. 

4.  Give the walls a fresh coat of paint.  Paint your interior for an instant upgrade and shift to your decor. Change a light coloured wall to a dark one for a big change, or simply repaint with the same colour to give the room a fresh look. Wallpaper is also a fun way to add more detail! 

Start off on the right foot by improving your home’s value without over spending this year!
