Summer has arrived! Now is the perfect time to make the home improvements you have been thinking about all winter. Whether big or small, summer is the perfect opportunity to implement any and all changes you want. We encourage you to stay motivated and accomplish all your goals for 2014. You may have lost sight of your New Year’s resolutions but it is never too late to start again! Security State Bank is here to help you stay on track financially. Here we have provided 4 ideas for home improvements on a budget.
Adopt a Plant
Indoor plants have been proven to lift moods, improve focus, and increase oxygen. Add a plant to your dining room, entry way, or front porch for a touch of color and fresh feel. You can grow your own plant or visit your local flower shop for a wide selection!
Add Some Color
What better way to show personality than through the front door? For an afternoon activity you can take your house from ordinary to extraordinary. Whether you choose pink, blue, yellow, or gray, be sure it compliments your house and neighborhood. Don’t be afraid to add a pop of color to your shutters or shades as well!
Find a New Light Fixture
A lamp or light can change the feel of any room. Your local antique store is sure to carry a one-of-a-kind chandelier or lamp for your home.
Care for Your Floor
Frequently caring for the floors in your home can prevent long term damage. Sweep at least three times a week to capture any dirt and dust that may leave scratches. Well cared for floors can improve the overall appearance of your home.
Working with a budget can make tasks seem impossible, but they don’t have to be. With a little extra thought and consideration you can make adaptations to your home more affordable.
