All Storage Online | January 25, 2021 @ 12:00 AM
Being cooped up indoors during the long winter months doesn’t have to mean being unproductive. In fact, there are quite a few simple house renovations you can do indoors that will spruce up your home and give it more appeal if you’re thinking of selling.
All Storage self-storage in Bedford, TX, has put together a list of a few budget-friendly winter renovations you can do around your home this season.
Add or Update Cabinet Hardware
One of the easiest and most affordable things you can do will also make a huge difference on the aesthetics of your home. Whether in your kitchen or bathroom, cabinet hardware is a little thing that can make a big difference.
If your cabinets didn’t come with hardware, you’ll just need a ruler to find the center of the cabinets and drawers, and a drill to screw in the new hardware. If you already have existing hardware, this job is even easier, as you simply need to replace the old knobs and handles with something more modern or that better fits your space and style.
Another quick fix is to replace old leaky faucets around your bathrooms and kitchen. Or, even if it’s not leaking, a new faucet can drastically change the look and feel of a room, so consider updating.
Faucets can be found at hardware stores with all the installation parts needed, and oftentimes for under $100. Installing can be done easily at home, and you’ll love the new style a modern faucet provides a room.
If replacing your faucets makes you realize you need a bigger home or kitchen renovation than you’d anticipated, consider using All Storage units in Bedford, TX, to keep your items safe and clean while your house is being worked on.
Renovate and Organize Your Closets
Something easy to do while it’s cold and dark outside is organizing and renovating your closets. Adding hooks or extra shelving is simple and can create lots of extra space. A few baskets or buckets and some creative placement can make a closet go from drab to fab in a few minutes!
Have more stuff in your closets than you know what to do with? No problem! Our storage near Bedford, TX, has as much or as little room as you need to store your items safely and securely.
Replace or Install Light Fixtures
Like faucets and hardware, light fixtures are things that can dramatically impact the look and feel of your home. Replace those old, cheap fixtures with something that fits your style and you’ll be amazed how much different your home looks and feels.
Replacing fixtures doesn’t take much knowledge, and as long as you shut your power off beforehand, it’s very safe and fast. You can often find light fixtures in the clearance sections of hardware stores which can save you even more money.
Add Smoke Detectors and Carbon Monoxide Detectors or Change Batteries
Last, we all hate that awful chirping in the middle of the night from a low-battery smoke detector. Instead of waiting for the noise, be proactive and replace the batteries! Not only will it save you the annoyance, it just may save your life as well.
Along with smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors are also an integral part of home safety, and can be installed on the ceiling or floor with very little effort. If you don’t already have smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, installing them is crucial. If you do, it may be time to change their batteries.
