While the holidays may be upon us, that doesn’t mean that you can’t get a few projects completed before they start.
There are ways to help you finish (and survive) a home improvement project just in time for your guests. Here are a few of the best ones to consider.
Keep It Simple
If you’re entertaining guests, it’s best to steer away from major home remodeling projects. These include work that could render your home unusable for two or more days. The best projects to handle during this time are quick exterior remodeling and maybe some aesthetic upgrades on some parts of your home. You can even use the time to install extra kitchen cabinets or even to repaint your old ones for a much fresher look.
Interior Design Projects
Of course, the decision to engage in large projects is still yours to make. So, if you’re thinking about getting a new home addition or even flipping an entire bedroom, you could certainly do so. However, it might also be worth it to look into smaller projects, such as upgrading your foyer with new wallpapers or furnishing guest bathrooms with new fixtures.
Trust the Pros
Lastly, you can avoid any additional stress during the holidays by making sure your project is handled by a licensed and experienced professional. If you’re constructing a deck, go with a skilled deck builder. If you’re redoing your kitchen and bathroom, find reputable contractors. Entrusting this work to people with questionable credentials might give you more stress than you bargained for.
