Happy February!! When the weather is cold, who wants to think about home improvement projects? Not me. All I want to do is sit by the fire with a blanket and stay warm! It looks like we're actually going to have some warmer weather over the next couple weeks, so it could be the perfect time to accomplish some of those projects you've been thinking about around the house. Whether you're just looking to do some sprucing up or are considering putting you house on the market this spring, these useful tips will help you add to the value and appearance of your home. 

Go green: 

A few changes to the landscaping of your home can make a world of difference! You might want to consider planting some fruit trees in the backyard, adding a touch of color with some bright and unusual flowers, or perhaps finally starting the vegetable garden you’ve always dreamed about. 

Add a touch of color: 

Feeling creative? Why not give the family room, bedroom, or bathroom a whole new look? By focusing on the improvement of one room at a time, you’ll find that what can seem like an overwhelming job becomes fun and simple! Repainting a single room can be inexpensively completed over a single weekend. 

Bright and beautiful: 

Replacing the light fixtures in your house with personally selected pieces can drastically increase your home’s beauty and value. Choose a cohesive look for the entire house, or decorate room by room! The installation of new fixtures is generally a quick do-it-yourself task and can really change the look of your home. 

Tile it up: 

While it might seem like a daunting task, but installing new tile in a kitchen or bathroom can be easily accomplished with a little know-how and the right supplies. Your local home improvement warehouse will have everything you need to revamp and personalize the flooring of your choice and YouTube is chock full of do-it-yourself tiling tutorials. 

The beauty beneath:

Always dreamed of having beautiful hardwood floors? Choose a room, pull up the carpet, and you’ll be on your way to accomplishing just that! Repairing, refinishing, and staining the floor is a simple step-by-step process that you can achieve without the heavy expense of installing new wood panels.
