3 Home Improvement Ideas For Spring In Indianapolis, IN

April 25, 2016

“Spring is the time of plans and projects.” - Leo Tolstoy. Spring brings out the desire to swing open and scrub everything down so that your home looks its best.

Here are 3 home improvement tips for spring in Indianapolis so that your home looks as good as new. 

1. Do A Spring Checkup For Energy Efficiency And Safety

Spring is the perfect time to make sure all of your home’s systems are ready for the upcoming summer months. Here’s a list of some of the things you should inspect every spring in Indianapolis:

  • HVAC System. Test out your air conditioning system to ensure that it’s ready for the coming summer heat. Increase your HVAC system’s energy efficiency by replacing your furnace and air conditioning filters. Local HVAC companies may offer this service for a low fee.
  • Smoke Detectors. Keep your family safe by testing your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. Put fresh batteries in your alarms every spring and fall.
  • Caulking and Windows. Check the caulking around doors, windows, and kitchen and bathroom fixtures for small cracks. Repair the caulking as needed. Install window treatments, such as plantation shutters, to improve the energy efficiency of your windows. Open your windows to ensure that they can move freely.

2. Deep Clean Your House So That It Shines

The best way to make your house sparkle is with a deep clean. Begin by decluttering each room to open up the space. Then clean surfaces you don’t scrub weekly such as kitchen and bathroom walls, baseboards, floors, and ceiling fans. Shine up your kitchen and bathroom fixtures. Move your furniture to clean and vacuum under and behind it and then vacuum your furniture.

Bring in more light by cleaning your windows. Scrub your screens and windows to remove dirt and grime. Wipe down your shutters, and clean your shades and draperies. You can clean your blinds with an ultrasonic cleaning treatment.

3. Give Your Rooms a New Look By Redecorating

After you’re done with deep cleaning, it’s time for the fun part: redecorating.

The simplest way to redecorate is to find new ways to use things you already have. Rearranging your furniture can give the room a completely new look. You can also shop your house. This means you switch out the items you already own between rooms. Bring in more color with new paint, bright accent pillows, and plants.
