During the shelter in place order, you may be realizing your house could use some TLC. But where to begin? Home improvement doesn’t have to mean knocking down walls or swapping out all of your appliances. Here are some small improvements to make while you’re home.
A new tool kit
Whatever project you decide to tackle, there’s a good chance you’ll be in a need of some tools. Now is the time to invest in a compact tool kit, like the Stanley Homeowner’s 65-Piece tool kit, that includes many of the household tools you should always have access to. These tools will help you tackle your home improvement projects well beyond the current stay-at-home orders.
Home security setup
Maybe it’s a project you’ve been waiting until you had the time to tackle, or maybe being home now has you worried about leaving your house when shelter in place orders are lifted. Regardless of the reason, now is a great time to order and install your home security system. Blink home security offers a range of products including indoor and outdoor cameras that send alerts and videos directly to your smartphone.
While you may be spending more time inside your home than ever before, there’s no reason your quality of life should suffer. Air purifiers circulate the air in your home to capture and remove pollutants and particles, but they can do much more. Dyson’s line of purifiers can double as heating and cooling appliances, and will inform you of your air quality levels in real-time. At a time when it’s more important than ever to take care of ourselves and our respiratory systems, this home improvement is a great investment.
Vinyl wall decals
Has staring at the same four walls day after day driven you crazy yet? You might be itching for a change, but it’s also not the best time to go pick out paint chips and completely paint your walls. Home Depot offers countless, temporary, wall decals that will give the impression of change without the commitment. Even better is you can shop them all online, so there’s no need to pick them out in person like you would paint.
As the weather gets nicer, and you’re still feeling trapped inside, extend your home improvement to the outdoors. The Craftsman Pressure Washer will have you looking for things you can clean. After you’ve cleaned your own house, patio, fence, and driveway, you may just find yourself asking your neighbors if you can clean theirs too.
