Blog ~ News and Updates on Hearndon Homes

February 20th, 2019

Love is in the air this month, why not show your home some love too? We may not take our home out for dinner, or write it a heartfelt letter—but we can take a little extra time to show our home the love it deserves with the following ideas.

Give it a deep clean

When was the last time you deep cleaned your home? It may be time to break out the good stuff (cleaning gear, that is!), wrangle up a cleaning buddy, turn on some music and get to work deep cleaning the house. You—and your home—will be glad you did!

Make time for those upgrades you’ve been putting off

We all have those wish list upgrades we’d “love to do one day” to our home. Why wait? Make the wish list a reality list by writing down the projects you’ve been putting off. Find which ones can be realistically achieved based on budget and time, and make them happen. Set a goal, or deadline to help hold you accountable.

Freshen it up with new paint

How long has your home worn the same paint color? It may be time for a little freshening up. Maybe something lighter or brighter, or creating a focal wall, be creative! Even just a touch up of your existing color can make a big difference.

Gift it with something beautiful

Who says you can’t buy your home a dozen roses? Fresh flowers are a great way to bring beauty into the home on a regular basis. Make it a goal to always keep fresh flowers throughout the home. You can also gift your home with a new piece of decor or art to add new beauty, color or texture to your home.

Ensure it’s protected

Your home is not only a huge investment, but it also obviously provides you with shelter and the amenities you need. Take time to make sure your homeowner’s insurance policy is up to date, and that you are covered at the necessary level. Also, take time to survey your home both inside and out for potential threats or dangers. For example, dead trees on the property that could fall and damage the roof, leaks, cracks in the foundation, electrical concerns and more.

Give it a full makeover

Have you grown so accustomed to the look of your home that it’s lost its “pop?” It may be time for a full makeover. It may sound drastic, but the results are amazing. Not to say you have to repaint the walls or redo the floors (but hey, we’re not stopping you), but maybe take down all the wall decor, rearrange all the furniture, give it a whole new look and feel!
