Many homeowners begin the New Year wanting to make some home improvements, but there’s so many, it can be tough to figure out which projects to tackle. My staff at Benchmark Painting & Carpentry collected four of the top home improvement projects that will also pay off in the long run.
Introduce a New Front Door
This may seem like a very minor improvement to your home, but the payoff is worth it, upping your curb appeal and your home’s value. Plus, it will boost your spirits every time you pull into your driveway and see a shiny new front door instead of a grungy old eyesore. It will “open the door” to a whole new look!
Build a Wood Deck
Whether or not you love to entertain, my carpenters know that a wood deck can add huge value to your home. It can be a great place to host parties – or a cozy retreat to cozy up with a book and cup of coffee in the early morning hours. Sounds perfect, doesn’t it? Our expert carpenters at Benchmark are the ones to call for professional deck and fence painting and staining.
Attack the Attic
The attic is good place to store your extra Christmas decorations, but it may actually function even better as a bedroom. My interior painters have seen plenty of homeowners in Potomac, MD turn their attics into an extra bedroom and bathroom – and the payoff is worth it; it’s less expensive than a home addition and you won’t lose yard space. Plus, my house painters can transform dingy walls into a painted masterpiece. It may turn out so well, you’ll want to claim it as your own bedroom!
Finish Your Basement
Yes, this task seems daunting. But when you compare the price of finishing your basement to the payoff, it’s completely worth it. Your new basement space is perfect for a playroom, grandparent’s quarters, or even a relaxing hangout with your friends. My interior painters would love to help you with color consultations, ensuring your basement will feel airy and fresh instead of dank and dingy.
