Whole house home improvement: start with some smart ideas. 

Whole house home improvement: start with some smart ideas. 

It could be few simple updates around the house. Or a remodeling.  Perhaps you want a complete renovation. If you’ve already decided to make improvements, of course, you want to be smart with your project, and smart with your budget.  Begin with these friendly ideas; end with your own plans.  

Upgrade insulation 

Make sure your insulation is doing its job, especially if you live where cold winters are the norm. Upgrade your insulation to help maintain your home and lower your monthly electric bills. Insulation upgrades don’t have to be costly, so do your research to find an economical option.  

Create storage space 

If you’ve lived in your home for a while, there’s no doubt that you have accumulated things. Instead of just shoving the infrequently used items in random places, why not build some creative shelving and storage? You can never have too much storage. 

Save on energy with new ceiling fans 

Switching old and outdated ceiling fans with new energy-saving fans comes with a bonus. As well as adding a nice, new look to a room, you’ll save money on electric. There are many options to consider based on your ceiling height, room size, and noise of fan motors. Think of it this way: it’s a cool way to go shopping. 

Light your landscape 

Look at landscape lighting as a way to highlight the favorite parts of your home. This also can include the installation of motion-sensor lighting. Making your home appear well lit at night can be a deterrent for burglars. You may qualify for a lower home insurance premium when you install motion-sensitive lighting. 

Add crown molding 

A wonderful way to add some personality to your home and at the same time add value is to upgrade with crown molding, also called cornices. They can make your rooms appear larger and create an appearance of more space. Thought to be a most elegant refurbish to your existing home, you can make this a do-it-yourself project. Choose between a simple upgrade and something more elaborate to suit your taste in decor and your lifestyle.
