5 Interior Touch Ups To Do Each Year

A little bit goes a long way.

Keeping your home in tip-top shape doesn't have to big one big project. Adding fresh new touches routinely can make a big difference in your everyday life and your home's curb appeal.

Update the Porch
The front of your home gives off the first impression. Updating the porch or front yard is an easy task that can be done each year. Remove any dead plants and pot new plants for the new season. Planters and pots and soil are usually under $50, so this is a quick and inexpensive fix.

Replace Knobs and Handles
Hardware on doors and cabinets can be easily swapped out for new items. Most houses come with generic doorknobs and cabinet knobs. You can also repaint cabinets to give them new life, but replacing hardware is a quick and easy fix. For bohemian-looking hardware, head to World Market for a variety of unique options. Hobby Lobby is also one of the best places to go for hardware. They have many different options at inexpensive prices.

Repainting the Front Door
The front door is the centerpiece of your home. Buy paint that already has a primer built into it so you only have to do one coat. Semi-gloss paints are perfect for doors because they allow you to wipe off the smudges. 

Repaint the Interior of Your Home
Every few years, the interior of your home needs to be repainted to cover up any scuffs and give your home a bright new look. Bedrooms and hallways should be repainted every two or three years. Kids bedrooms and hallways tend to experience lots of wear and tear because they are areas of lots of movement and activity. Therefore, it is important to keep the paint updated every few years.

Get New Home Accessories
New throw pillows and a rug can easily bring new life into your home. When children and pets have been playing on pillows and area rugs for a while they can get dirty. Swap them out frequently.
