5 Home Updates You Can Do in Cleveland While Staying At Home

April 09, 2020

If you glance around your house in Cleveland, you could start spotting various projects that need to be done. Although a few home updates require lots of time, money, and multiple runs to the store, there are some home improvements in Cleveland you can complete without leaving your home. Here are 5 ways you can update your living space without leaving your property.

Paint Your Rooms for a Sudden, New Look

Is there spare paint laying around from previous home improvement jobs? Put it to proper use and give your area a new life. Painting your walls is one of the most inexpensive ways you can enhance your living area. Also, it simply takes a a couple of hours, paint, and a little bit of supplies you normally have lying around such as brushes, rollers, and drop cloths.

Give Your Home’s Furniture A New Look

If there is furniture around the house that you used to adore but is presently old, worn, or its style is two decades old, think about refurbishing it. Occasionally, all a desk or bureau needs is a fresh coat of paint in a new color to give it added life and sophistication. And your chair with the ugly fabric may be easier to reupholster than you believe, especially if you purchase the fabric online. Changing up your furniture can be a quick, inexpensive project that brings you joy.

Shop for Custom Window Treatments at Home

Installing new custom window treatments like plantation shutters, shades, or blinds is a tremendous way to enhance a living space and give it a renewed look. Furthermore, some window treatments like Polywood® shutters can yield added energy efficiency.

Fortunately you don’t need to leave and go to a shopping center or showroom to receive a design session with a professional and purchase new window treatments. With services like Sunburst’s Virtual Design Consultation, you can schedule a virtual consultation in Cleveland. During the consultation you’ll hear about available window treatments we propose for you and your living space, we’ll help you take measurements of your windows for a customized fit, and then we can help you order your new window treatments.

Consider Creative Ways to Use Things You Currently Have

Another way to give your rooms a complete new look and feel is by just rearranging your furniture and adjusting your room to enhance your lifestyle. As an example, if you love to read, think about making a reading corner that doubles as a comfy sitting living space with task lighting, and a area to put your favorite books and a cup of coffee nearby.

You can also get more creative and identify opportunities to mix and match accessories found in different rooms in your house. A chair that looks weird in your family room, might be just what you need in your living room.

Freshen Up Your Landscape

Additionally, home upgrades aren’t limited to the indoors. When you take a little time to spruce up your home’s yard and patio, you’ll enlarge your living space. Some simple outdoor projects include planting a garden or enhancing your landscaping by dividing up your plants. Simply taking a few hours for weeding and mulching can help give you a backyard oasis where you can rest.
