Easy maintenance and home improvement tasks

  • A fresh lick of paint
    Giving your home, both interior and exterior, a quick once over with a paintbrush can make a world of difference. Not only will it make your home feel fresher, brighter and ready for the new year, but it gives you the chance to make any seasonal changes you fancy without too much bother!
  • Re-do the garden
    So often, gardens go neglected when we’re making improvements to the home, but gardens can really make a big difference to the overall feel of the home. Take an hour or so once or twice a month to just tidy round your garden, mow the grass and tend to any plants you’ve got growing. You’ll thank yourself for it when you see the big tasks everyone else is taking on later in the year to get their gardens in hand!
  • Maintenance
    Any small repairs that can be taken care of yourself, make sure you actually do! Like the garden clean up, set aside a couple of hours to just go round checking things and making the necessary repairs; changing fuses, checking and replacing lightbulbs, making small repairs on doors, that sort of thing. Anything that needs taking care of that you can’t do yourself, get a professional in for.
  • A deep clean
    We all tidy up our homes, but deep cleaning often gets pushed right to the back of the to-do list. However, this can result in a bigger job later on, and it’s just not worth it! Take the chance to give your home a good deep clean every so often, and all you’ll need to do in between is just keep on top of it, making your life easier in the long run.

Of course, all of these things are a good idea to do every so often anyway, but if you are planning on selling your home they’re essential. These simple tasks can make the difference between someone viewing your home and making an offer, or viewing and then instantly forgetting it – be sure to make a great impression!
