What better way to start off the new year than by making some practical adjustments to your home? The slightest attention to detail can make every bit of difference, from your daily routine to impressing your visitors.
Use a sink filter
Installing a filter for your tap water is a great investment for your kitchen. Not only is it something you can do yourself, it will pay dividends in the long run. An under-sink filter is one of the only ways to guarantee clean and pure drinking water. With filtered sink water, you’ll be able to fill up your reusable water bottles right from the tap and won’t need to buy any more disposable plastic water bottles.
Incorporate a Roman Shade
Accent your window with a small treatment. If you can’t put it together with the items you have in your home already, getting a small blind and a mid-sized upholstery fabric is a perfect, cost-effective way to let sunlight improve your color scheme. This is a great way to transform a window with a large sill into a cozy reading nook.
Get a new showerhead
Having the right showerhead is a convenient and inexpensive way to upgrade your bathroom. Getting a fresh, new showerhead will give new life to your bathroom and your morning routine. Consider a removable, adjustable showerhead perfect for people of all sizes (and pets too).
Craft an outdoor walkway
An outdoor walkway will liven things up perfectly in your outdoor space. A smooth stone or brick path helps you and your guests navigate comfortably. It not only gives your outdoor area a satisfying guide to maneuver through, it’s a great way to keep your lawn healthy while still utilizing the capabilities of your backyard. Expand on the walkway even more by installing solar powered lights along the way to keep things lively at night.
Uncover hidden storage
Finding new places to store your things will open up your living space greatly. Carving out space to store items underneath a staircase is the simplest, cheapest way for you to clear out valuable floor space while also keeping everything easily accessible. It might take some time, but your future self will thank you when you can prepare for guests without worrying if space is going to be an issue.
These ideas are a great way to take advantage of your weekend and will have you and your friends loving your home.
