If you are not planning on going on vacation this summer but you still would like to utilise those warm, stimulating days that are ahead of us, there are several pretty easy to pull off home improvements that you can manage on a budget and even as DIY projects. They will not only make your home look and feel better but will most likely have quite a positive effect on your general mood and sense of fulfilment too.
All projects offered below are low-cost and will require a minimal degree of special skills to carry out. However, if you like a suggestion but have no idea whether you will manage to complete the task on your own, there is no shame in asking a local handyman for a quote and eventually – their expert help.
Repaint the house – or certain portions of it
Adding a fresh coat of paint on any of the walls in your house will give this particular room a whole new outlook. It does not matter whether you choose the same colour you already have or a totally different one (some people even choose to paint the four walls in a single room in different colours) the effect will be immediate and it will be clearly visible too. Painting, however, might be pretty exhausting and you should avoid making certain mistakes. If you are not prepared for this, but still would like to reap the benefits of this project, call your local handyman and ask for their cheap painting services in London.
On a side note, it is not the interior of your house only that you can paint. The outside walls and the fence might need a fresh coat too. Inspect them and decide how to proceed.
Tend to the garden
Revamping your outdoor space might sound like too much work to be doing this summer, but it can be done pretty quickly and easily as a DIY project. You need to only know in advance what your end game is – do you want a beautiful flower garden, a place to relax with a cold drink, throw parties under the stars or grow your own vegetables. Make sure you have sufficient skill to pull off some of the following tasks:
- Trimming hedges and trees
- Planting seeds
- Building flowerbeds
- Maintaining a patio clean and tidy
- Removing organic and non-organic junk from your garden
The only other thing left for you is to roll up your sleeves and get down to work.
Install energy efficient lighting throughout the property
The easiest task to pull off on our list can potentially help the environment and will definitely save you some cash in the long run. Energy efficient light bulbs are ridiculously easy to install and will cost you a fraction of the money you will not have to pay for future energy bills. If you are confident in your own skills, you can even think about installing motion sensors in the hallways and outside areas of your home.
