If you’re looking to start home improvement projects, you’re not alone. Spring is right around the corner which means the inevitable spring cleaning is rapidly approaching. You might be overwhelmed with tasks and not know where to start, which is why we have comprised this simple checklist for how to go about prioritizing home improvement projects. Relax, take a deep breath, read on, and protect your home with a customized NJ Home Insurance policy.
You can’t think about home improvement projects where there are trinkets and gizmos stuffed into every nook and cranny of your home. Declutter your space and get rid of the junk that serves no purpose. Sell, donate, or just toss the stuff you don’t need to get a better sense of what projects you need to focus on.
Make a list.
Start by writing down all of the projects you eventually wish to complete. Brainstorm projects throughout the house and write them all down – whether it’s handwritten or in an Excel spreadsheet, use the method that works best for you and that’s easy to keep track of.
This should go without saying, but some home improvement projects need to be bumped to top of the list to ensure the safety of you and your loved ones. Before you take on the improvements you want to do, first complete the projects you must complete, for the safety of yourself and your family. Make sure your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors are working and supplied with fresh batteries. Clean out the lint from your dryer exhaust duct to prevent a fire. Fix all locks, doorknobs, and windows to make sure they close and lock securely. Once safety projects are checked off your list, you can move on to the fun stuff, explains She Knows.
Budget almost always dictates which projects can be completed first. Think about which ones can be inexpensive DIY projects and which ones require the help of a professional. Research online how to get more bang for your buck for every item on your wish list!
