Whether you just bought a new home or you’re simply trying to spruce up the one you’ve got, we can’t think of a better way to welcome 2021 than a little home makeover. Here are 5 ways you can give your home a facelift in the new year.
Replace your mailbox
Sprucing up your mailbox is an easy way to boost curb appeal. Mailboxes are a bit under-appreciated aren’t they? But we use them daily and they are the first thing everyone sees as they drive by your home. When was the last time you painted, secured, or replaced your mailbox?
Giving your home a facelift doesn’t have to be expensive or time-consuming! Give your front door a fresh coat of paint and call it a day. There’s nothing like a vibrant front door to welcome guests, friends, and family to your home.
Plant some flowers
If you’re looking to give your home a facelift to celebrate the new year, plant some pretty shrubs or flowers in front of your home. Flowers give your home a fresh look without a lot of hassle or know-how. If you’re not sure what to plant, try azaleas or hydrangeas.
Clean your windows
It might sound simple, but you’d be surprised just how much brighter and fresher your home looks after you deep clean your windows. To achieve the best results, be sure to clean both sides, indoors and outdoors. If your home has a lot of windows or really tall ones, you might consider getting a professional to clean them for you.
Pressure wash exteriors
Why stop with windows? Clogged gutters, grimy roofs, and black sidewalks and driveways are curb appeal buzzkills. Give your home a much-needed facelift by getting your exteriors pressure washed. Pressure washing washes away all the dirt and grime that gathered the previous year, giving your outdoor spaces a clean slate for 2021!
