Fall is a great season to start taking care of minimal-effort home improvement projects that you can do on your own. Plus, there are so many to choose, from replacing wall switch cover plates to updating knobs and handles throughout your home. Here are a few home DIY projects you should consider kickstarting this season.
Replace Wall Switch Cover Plates
If the wall switch cover plates in your home are outdated or damaged, you should plan on replacing them with new ones. Fortunately, these plates come in many different colors and designs, but you should make sure they match the theme of your home.
Repaint the Interior of Your Home
To give your home a nice fall feel, consider repainting the interior a calming neutral color. This will be helpful if the paint on the interior of your house looks damaged or is peeling. Plus, you don’t want to take on this project during the winter, since you may run into drying problems due to the weather. Additionally, painting your home a neutral color will help you sell your home faster (when you’re ready), compared to having a brightly colored house. There’s nothing worse than a house that sticks out like a sore thumb!
A small, but noticeable, DIY fall project you can get started on is updating the knobs and handles around your home. This will be especially helpful if these are falling off their drawers or just don’t match the theme of your home. Fortunately, knobs and handles are pretty inexpensive, so you don’t have to worry about spending a fortune making this update to your home.
Although this is less of a home improvement project, it’s crucial that you do home inspections on the regular, especially relentless seasons like the fall and winter. The last thing you want is a repair to go unnoticed and deal with the consequences buried under a few feet of snow. Doing your own DIY home inspection can help you identify any repairs that need to be made, especially ones that could potentially harm your family and pets.
There are many DIY home projects you can get started on this fall, from replacing wall switch cover plates to doing your own home inspection. Hopefully, with the help of this guide, you can get a few ideas of how to upgrade your home on your own this fall, without breaking the bank. Start today by replacing the switch covers in your home.
