With Thanksgiving barely behind us and Christmas on the way, you’re likely worried about how your house looks for holiday guests. While you may think you don’t have time to hire a general contractor in time for Christmas, there are a number of quick home improvement projects you can do to really spruce up your home in time for your guests.
Quick & Easy Home Improvement Projects
Replace Doorknobs and Lock Sets
Do your doorknobs and locksets look a bit dated? If so, replacing them can give your home a much more updated, modern feel. Replacing doorknobs is fairly easy and while replacing locksets is a bit more challenging, it’s definitely something that most homeowners can handle.
Clean and Seal Grout in Kitchen and Bathroom
Is the grout in your kitchen and bathroom looking a bit rough? If so, it’s best to use a special cleaner specifically designed to clean grout. Once you’ve cleaned the grout you can use a sealer to prevent it from getting dirty so quickly.
Replace Cabinet Hardware
Changing the finish and style of your cabinet hardware is another easy project that can really transform the look of your kitchen or bathroom. Give your home a more contemporary or traditional look just by swapping out your old drawer knobs and pulls for something that is a bit more up to date.
Replace Your Dated Shower Rod
Looking to give your holiday guests a little more room when they shower? Install a curved shower rod to give your guests some extra room when showering.
Upgrade Your Toilet Seat
Your toilet seat may be the last thing you think about when it comes to home improvements, but we’re betting that it could use an upgrade. Examine your toilet seat to determine if it’s time for a new one. Some of the new models even offer convenience features such as soft closers to ensure your guests will have that resort-like feel in your bathroom.
Add Some Cabinet Organizers
If you feel like you never have enough storage space in your kitchens and bathrooms consider adding some cabinet organizers. This way you’ll have a place for everything when your guests arrive to ensure your house stays clutter free.
