2017 Home Improvement Checklist
Keep track of your chores with this handy list!
With spring around the corner, March is the perfect month to create a home improvement checklist. Get a jumpstart on spring cleaning and prepare for big and small home projects to spruce up your exterior façade, breathe life into your interior, and make sure you’re on track. Here are our top five items to include on your list for home improvement in Chattanooga.
Add a vibrant accent wall in your bedroom, update your window treatments, or put up modern wallpaper to refresh your home’s interior. Check out the new 2017 color palette from Benjamin Moore if you need paint inspiration. Consider new trim or flooring, or go all-in with total room renovations. Finally get to that design project you’ve been saving up for, right in time to welcome spring.
The exterior appearance of your home is just as important as your interior living space. Boost your curb appeal in time for spring flowers and bright green grass with a few inspirational ideas. Update your paint to better suit the architectural theme of your home, or join the trend toward more creative accent color choices. Choose a natural shade as your main color and add a pop of brightness to the shutters, front door, or columns. Pre-spring is also a great time to invest in new windows, siding, and a roof if you’re overdue for an update.
If you’re one of many homeowners in need of replacing old, outdated materials around your home, there’s no time like the present. Bring your home up to date with clean, minimalist design materials like neutral linen drapes, flood wood finishes, and geometric pattern wallpaper. Whether you want a major change or minor upgrades, the material you choose can say a lot about your sense of style.
Appliances and Electronics
You can’t forget what goes on behind the scenes in your home on your checklist – mechanics and electronics. Modern technology has taken the home a long way, enabling energy efficiency and performance optimization in every aspect of the home. Schedule routine maintenance checks for your major appliances, such as your HVAC system, water heater, dishwasher, and plumbing system. Upgrade old systems to new, electronic versions to save money on energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint.
One of the simplest and most effective ways to transform a space is in the finishing touches. Faux finishing tools, decorative paints, stencils, and metallic shimmers are all easy to execute and make a strong impression. Trust Chattanooga Paint and Decorating to revamp your space right before springtime.
