Home Projects You Can Tackle in A Single Day


Tackle these projects in a single day

It’s easy to get stressed out just hearing the word “renovation” when it comes to real estate.  You’re instantly thinking of having your home life disrupted by construction debris, cluttered rooms, and loud noises.  Team Ellis is happy to come to your home and help you decide which projects will actually be beneficial.

But you don’t have to spend a ton of money and brace yourself for months of inconvenience to upgrade your home. Here are a few projects that you can knock out in a single day, and they’ll greatly improve the look and enjoyment of your home.

Paint or replace an exterior door: If you know the correct dimensions and specifications for a replacement door, replacing an exterior door as a project is a quick and easy job. That’s even more true if you’re repainting it. Preparation and a few coats of paint will only take a few hours.

Plant some low-maintenance trees: Young evergreen trees are relatively simple to plant, and after some heavy watering in the first few weeks, they’re very easy to maintain instantly improving curb appeal.  Curb appeal projects can differ but make sure that they’ll add some color and texture to your landscaping. i

New light fixtures: Whether they’re on the interior or exterior of your home, something as subtle as light textures can have a dramatic effect. Swapping out traditional fixtures for something modern or industrial can completely transform a room. Finding out what the newest trends are can also help your home look updated.

New hardware: Drawer pulls and door knobs are easy projects and are simple to change out, and like light fixtures, they have a big impact. You’d be amazed how your kitchen or bathroom could look with new more modern hardware.
