As Colorado Springs continues the “level-red” shutdown regulations, everyone is encouraged to stay home. 

With this winter shutdown/stay-at-home order, you might be asking yourself, “well what am I going to do at home now?” 

Well, don’t worry we have a list of 5 home improvement projects that will allow you to make the most out of your time at home.

5 Home Improvement Projects 

1. Update Your Lighting

Lighting can really make or break the atmosphere of a room and thankfully updating your lights can be as inexpensive or as expensive as you’d like to make it.

Adding some new, modern, and updated light fixtures can go a long way in taking your home to the next level. In fact, updated light fixtures can make any room look sophisticated, and even help increase your home’s value.

Pro tip: if you’re looking to upgrade any room in your house, but don’t want to spend the money on an entirely new light fixture, simply switch out bulbs for brighter bulbs or even colored lights to give more light and life to a room.

2. Update/Change Out Hardware

Another simple way to update your home is by switching the hardware on your drawers and cabinets.

This can be anything from your home office, kitchen, laundry room, media stand, and so much more.

The best part is that you can really personalize these. You can find a ton of different options at your local hardware store or online that are different colors, patterns, finishes, and more. 

Best part, unlike many other projects, all you’ll need is a screwdriver!

Pro tip: For less work, choose hardware that already has the same hole configuration on your current furniture that way you’re not having to drill new holes.

3.Give Your Fireplace a Facelift

If you have a fireplace, odds are it’s the centerpiece of your living room so why not give it a facelift? You’d be surprised at how different it can make a room look.

Use a fresh coat of paint so you can give that old fireplace a new modern look. 

Prior to beginning this project, you’ll want to take the time to clean the fireplace to get rid of any grime and dirt on it. Then you’ll want to think about which kind of paint you’d like to use. We love to use a high-gloss paint when creating a contemporary look. 

Pro tip: This can be a huge project, and might be more than you’re willing to do alone. If you want to give your fireplace a facelift, but don’t want to do it yourself, contact our team at AB Painting & Drywall in Colorado Springs for your free quote!

4. Paint Your Stairs

Home Projects Colorado SpringsWhile you may not consider painting your staircase as a major home improvement project, painting your stairs can actually give your home a completely different look. 

In fact, stairs truly are a focal point of any Colorado Springs home. 

By taking the time to paint your stairs you can update them from an 80’s or 90’s look to a modern and contemporary look. Paint can also give the impression that they’re new handrails and hide many flaws in the wood. 

Though this is a project that you could DIY, as such a main focal point of your home it’s also a great idea to bring in a professional painting company to get the work done for you.

5. Paint the Interior Walls of Your Home

Although small updates are a great way to update your home, nothing gives your home a more fresh and updated look than interior paint. As an added bonus, interior paint can also protect your home from the elements.

Just like your exterior walls, your interior walls can deteriorate due to weather, time, and smoke. Did you know that over time drywall and plaster absorb moisture? This gradually starts to degrade your interior paint. 

By painting the interior of your home you can seal out moisture and protect your walls and home from mold or mildew.

This winter, use professional interior painting services to not only transform your home into your dream space, but also protect it from deterioration.
