5 Pre-Thanksgiving Easy Home Projects
The holidays, and the season of entertaining, are upon us. We’ve rounded up the top 5 easy home projects you might want to tackle before coming under the scrutiny of the in-laws.
Clean Out Your Rain Gutters
We’re finally getting some winter weather, which means rain could be just around the corner. You don’t want dirty rain gutters backing up the water flow when guests are around.
Whether you just need to spot treat a few areas or you’re ready for a deep, professional clean, take time before the holidays to spruce up your carpets. Carpet cleaning not only gets rid of unsightly stains, it can take care of pet or other odors as well.
Update Your Fixtures
New cabinet handles, sink spigots and decorative knobs can quickly spruce up your home. Focus on the bathroom, where your guests are likely to notice the changes.
Bust out the touch-up brush to any scratches or blemishes on your walls. Especially on larger walls, the eye will be drawn to any inconsistencies in the paint. If you’re feeling adventurous, try adding an accent wall for a dramatic effect.
Adding a few seasonal plants to your home can double as festive decorations for the season. Enjoy the benefits of having plants around and skip the cheesy paper decorations.
