#MakeOneChange This September And Transform Your Home

Have you been looking to make a change to your home this year that you’ve been putting off?

Now is the perfect time to tackle those projects and give your home a new lease of life. This September is National Home Improvement Month, which is a consumer awareness campaign encouraging homeowners everywhere to make a single change to their property to improve it with the help of renowned services like the APMG Services

With over 56% of UK residents not loving their home, this is a perfect challenge to help you fall in love with your property all over again. Plus, with the British Home Enhancement Trade Association (BHETA) offering prizes for the best before and after pictures there’s never been a better time to take part.

Full details of how you can put yourself in the running for a prize can be found on the National Home Improvement Month website

So, are you feeling up to the challenge?

If you are, it’s important not to get overwhelmed. It’s easy to create a long list of things you want to do, but it’s a good idea to prioritise. Like every home builder in Utah County says, research and references are the best ways to bring out great ideas. 

To help you get started with some simple projects here are 3 things you could do to have a big impact on your home.

Update your kitchen for a new look

Kitchens are the undisputed heart of the home. Now more than ever, they’ve been kitchens, offices and school rooms potentially all on the same day. After spending extra time in your kitchen have you noticed things you would like to change?

A full kitchen renovation could take a long time, for a more immediate change why not update your kitchen cabinets? According to Gamma Cabinetry, you can sand them down and apply a fresh coat of paint if they’re wooden and structurally sound, or you can reface them if this isn’t possible.

For a finishing touch you can always update the hardware attached to them (handles, pulls, knobs) for a fresh modern look.

Try removable wallpaper to make a statement

You heard us correctly, removable wallpaper is a ‘thing’! 

This wonderful alternative to messy traditional wallpapering is a great way to experiment with different styles without committing. If you decide you don’t like the design, it’s easy to peel it off and try again with minimal damage to the wall. Whether you want to try floral, geometric or art deco this is the perfect way to give it a go.

Use this wallpaper to bring new life to a bedroom, living room or even a home office with minimal effort. It’s the perfect one small change to make this month for the #MakeOneChange challenge.

Update your doorway for kerb appeal

The entrance to your home makes a first impression for you. You’d be lying if you said that you weren’t interested in what other people thought of your home; of course you’re interested. 

In order to ensure a positive review we recommend spending time renovating your front entrance. You can replace your old front door for an immediate improvement, but why stop there? Spend time refreshing any exterior paintwork, invest in some new plants and give the front garden a good manicure to complete the fresh new look.

If the one change you want to make to your home is too big for you to take on yourself and it involves a new door, or some other home improvement product, Orion Windows can take on the challenge for you. Just contact us for assistance.
