As you begin creating your gift list this holiday season, there is one thing we want to remind all homeowners not to forget, and that is giving your home some love! For some, that could be buying a new rug for the family room or changing the welcome mat before the company arrives.
Though these are all effective ways to spruce up your home, there are a few changes you can make that will not only be better for the holidays but can help improve your home all year long. Here’s how:
Spruce Up Your Bathroom
Finishing your bathroom remodel, putting on a fresh coat of paint, bringing out the fancy towels, and giving a good scrub down is one way to get ready for the holidays, but what about your water fixtures? When the last time you considered upgrading or replacing them?
Many modern low-flow fixtures are available now, and not only can they add to your decor, but they can also save you water waste too. By going with a low-flow option, your water pressure will be regulated, reducing the amount of water you use. This especially helpful if you plan to have a ton of house guests staying for the holidays.
Check For Minor Repairs
From your bathroom to your kitchen, these issues should be repaired as soon as you can so they don’t cause further damage or issue down the road. Be sure to look for a fix any:
- Leaks around your pipes or plumbing fixtures
- Slow running drains
- Smelly drains
- Constantly clogged toilets
- Thermostat issues
- Uneven heating
Keep Your Air Quality In Mind
When is the last time you changed your air filters or had your HVAC system serviced? If you are not sure of the answer, it’s probably time to schedule one. A dirty air filter worsens your HVAC’s performance, lowers your air quality, and forces your system to work harder, shortening its lifespan.
