Spring is in full swing and the temperatures are slowly rising as we move into April. This is often the time of year people tend to show their home the most love, with spring cleaning and preparing their home for summer activities and guests. However, don’t stop there! Whether you are in your new home or a home you have lived in for a while, it is good to show your home you love it as well over time and not just in the spring. Parry Custom Homes, a premier Pittsburgh on your lot builder, shares 5 ways to show your home love this time of year.
The first way you can show your home some love is to make some easy DIY updates. Even if you have no plans to sell your home, it is good to make updates overtime so that your home keeps a new and updated feel. Some great and easy updates you can do yourself are things like: updating your faucet in your kitchen or bathroom sinks, get some new, updated drawer knobs for your kitchen cabinets, upgrade the fluorescent light fixtures in your bedroom or bathrooms with more modern ones, or paint your front door a vibrant shade that you love to make it pop.
Simple changes around your home can make a huge impact over time, without making a huge impact on your wallet all at once.
Another thing you could do for your home is buy it something pretty. Maybe you have had your eye on a set of barn doors you think would look amazing in your family room or bedroom, or perhaps some fun, bright colored pillows caught your eye the last time you were at the home store. Bring something beautiful into your home for spring to give it a new, fresh feel.
The third thing you could do to love your home is to enjoy it with good company! Has it been ages since you entertained at your home because you can’t bring yourself to clean and prepare to have anyone over these days? Make a change and plan a get together at your home.
Whether you want to have some family over, a small group of friends or even just have some neighbors over for a cookout, the best thing you can do in your home is enjoy it. So, think of a fun way you can make some new memories in your home, no matter how big or small.
If you have been in your home for a while and haven’t yet taken advantage of the lower mortgage rates that are still available, tip #4 would be to save money on your home. Consider refinancing it now that rates are lower and even consider changing from an adjustable rate mortgage to a fixed-rate mortgage. This can help make your payments more predictable and less dependent on how the market is doing.
Lastly and most importantly, make sure your home is protected. Review your homes insurance policy and make sure there aren’t any obvious gaps in your coverage. It is also important to make sure you are not overly insured or paying more than you need too for the coverage you have.
If you think there is room for improvement in your insurance, shop around or get with your current provider to see if there is a better policy for you to be on.
Putting any or all of these things to play in your home will help you love it even more!
