Want To Update Your Home This Spring? 2 Things To Start With

Home & Garden Blog

Spring is a time when many people want to spring clean and make changes to their homes. If this is you, there are many things you can do to update your home to make it look different this year. Below is information about two of these things to help you get started on your projects this spring. 

New Windows

If you have old windows in your home, replacing them not only makes the home look better but also offers many benefits as well. Old windows are often drafty, which can cause your energy bills to increase. This also puts a lot more work on your HVAC unit, so it may need to be replaced sooner. 

When it comes to windows you have many options to choose from. Single-hung windows are commonly used in homes. With these windows, there is only one sash that moves up and down. Double-hung windows are also available and these have two sashes that slide up and down inside the window frame. This can make the windows much easier to clean. Both single-hung and double-hung windows look great in almost any room in your home. 

There are also casement windows that are often used above kitchen sinks. These windows crank open using a hand crank. They are hinged and can open from the right or left side. In the past, the crank was hard to turn but the newer casement windows have a crank that makes it easy and fast to open and close the window. While you are standing at the sink doing dishes, simply open the window to get a little fresh air into the room.

For more information, contact a local window dealer.

New Paint

Giving your home a new coat of paint can make a dramatic difference, especially if you choose a different color. Over time, paint fades making it look much older than it is. When deciding on a color, consider your surroundings and other homes near you. If you want to maintain the same color, choose colors that match the homes in your area. 

You could also make your home really stand out by choosing a more dramatic color. For example, you could paint your house green instead of a tan or brown color. You do need to consider the roof, however, as you want the roof and the color of your home to go well together. 

Hire a professional to paint your home for you. They can do it much faster than you can. They have spray guns that allow them to get a nice, even coat of paint on your home. If you have a two or more-story home hiring a professional is beneficial as they have equipment that allows them to paint tall homes, whereas you could get injured if you do this on your own. 

There are many more things you can do, such as landscaping, installing a new roof, and replacing the driveway.

Carpet Cleaning Tips And Tricks

Hello, it's Trinity Wilson here and I love cleaning carpets. Having five children gave me a crash course on this fine art. While renting, it's important to keep the carpets free of stains despite the chaos that multiple children bring down after all. I learned how to lift liquids out of the carpet before they could set. I learned how to remove hidden stains well after the kids moved something over the top to cover their crime. I've even taught my kids how to clean stains out of their carpets using both natural and commercial products. I've decided to apply my skills to this website to teach my readers the best ways to approach carpet cleaning. I will share how to clean the carpet by hand, with a machine and even when to hire professionals to get the job done. Welcome to my site, please come by often!
