Lighting Upgrades

You will be amazed by how different your home looks with a new lighting system. While electric components and systems are never an easy job, the lighting of your home is perhaps its most basic electrical component.

Even if you simply focus on upgrading the lighting fixtures, or adding some DIY lights, outdoor lighting, or motion detector lighting, you can make a huge impact on the overall look and feel of your home for the new year.

Add Curb Appeal

Landscaping, redesigning your front yard, painting your porch, or even something as small as planting new flowers and restoring or upgrading your letterbox can add immense curb appeal to your home.

Of course, there are many other things you can do to add curb appeal. Be creative but pick easy DIY projects you can complete before the new year. Maybe power wash your driveway or paint your front door.

Winter might not be the best time of year to take on these curb appeal projects, but you can start planning for them, and start working on the design, color choices, and lineup contractors now so you’re ready as soon as the weather breaks.

Upgrade the Laundry/ Kitchen

It isn’t uncommon for homeowners to upgrade their laundry or kitchen during the colder months. Holidays allow for free time and it is also an ideal time to tackle any mold damage or water damage in these spaces.

Get creative and think of easy DIY projects and upgrades you can take to your laundry and kitchen. Maybe add some closets or shelves, upgrade the cabinetry, or change the plumbing fixtures. Go through these spaces in your home and see what is needed that you can easily DIY.

Your laundry and kitchen are perhaps the most used and lived-in spaces of your home. Any upgrades and DIY projects in these spaces will surely benefit you throughout the new year and beyond.


We recommend considering which areas of your home can do with freshening up and picking the DIY projects that will give you the most satisfaction.
