What would you say if we offered to help you with improving your home within the next 24 hours?
Whether you are preparing for a resale or trying to impress a special guest, you can improve the condition of your home by making a few tweaks. You don’t need to go on a limb and spend thousands of dollars just to impress a certain guest. Also, it is better and more appreciated when you are honest and open– with a buyer– about the real condition of your home. This post is intended to help you do just that.
Here’s How You Can Improve the Condition of Your Home Within 24 Hours
1) Remove excess furniture and clutter
Decluttering is absolutely necessary if you have more stuff in your home than it could bear. This can happen if you have recently moved into a home smaller in size than the one before. Start by getting rid of large and bulky items like furniture and electronics. Every item in your home has value, so you can easily sell them online or start a garage sale outside your porch. To sell your used items, use apps like Decluttr and 5miles.
2) Let the light in
Improving the condition of your home within 24 hours is not easy. But there are few things you can do that won’t require much time and effort. Letting more sunlight in your home will instantly improve the conditions. Sunlight can repel insects and rodents hiding inside your home; forcing them to leave your home. Also, it improves the aesthetics of your home.
3) Don’t hold on to the past
I know how important old memories are. Your photo albums, book collections, greeting cards, etc might be precious to you. But sometimes it is better to let go of things that no longer have any significance in your life. Getting rid of such memento from your closet can make room for more important items.
4) Clean up your backyard
The backyard is also an important part of your home. Whether you are planning to sell your home (and want to raise its value) or just tidying up, you want to keep it nice and safe for yourself, your family and the visitors. Start by weeding out obnoxious plants like tall grass and other unneeded plants. Throw away any garbage or waste; if you find any in your backyard. Also, get rid of ants and other insects by spraying insecticide.
5) Get the plumbing fixed once in for all
I know you only have 24 hours to fix the plumbing system in your home. It’s also true that you cannot change the entire plumbing within this timeframe, but you can surely get the most common or frequently recurring problems fixed.
According to LenThePlumber, dripping faucets and leaky pipes are two of the most common plumbing problems faced by homeowners. It’s best to call a plumber and get these two fixed; it wouldn’t take more than an hour to fix both or one of these problems.
When it comes to home improvements, the natural instinct of a homeowner is to focus on major issues like getting the house painted, getting custom furniture made, fixing the electrical issues, renovating the structure of the house, etc. But most often a few subtle changes can make your house look good as new.
