Are you hoping to spruce up your house in the new year, but you have no renovation plan on how to upgrade your abode? With people spending more time at home, it is time you remodel the house you love and make major improvements that will increase the value of your property. Improving your home must begin with energy-saving tips, cosmetic fixes, and fittings within the house. 

If you are looking forward to entering the new year with a better house, here are five simple steps that can help you improve your house and its value. 

Add Fresh Paint

Adding fresh paint to your house is the easiest way of improving your home and making it appear bigger and brighter as you make a fresh start in the new year. You can try painting the small rooms such as powder rooms and bedrooms yourself and hiring professionals to do the larger rooms such as living spaces, entryways, and exterior walls. Make sure you paint and oil the movable parts, including the nuts and bolts used in the fixation of the house to give them a new look and prevent them from rusting. 

Invest in Small Home Devices

Investing in small home devices is one of the best ways to outfit your home in the new year to give it a fresh look. The small devices will assist you by saving your money in energy bills, improve home security, and overall, make life easier and enjoyable for you and your family. For the new year, such small devices you can consider include a thermostat, iPad, Philips Hue Bulb, a robot vacuum, a window shade, and a smart doorbell.

Service Your Chimney

As you approach winter, it is highly recommended that you service your chimney as it will be used more often during the period. As you maintain your chimney, you are preventing home fires, soot build-up and carbon monoxide poisoning that is quite harmful to the whole family. For such a task, you can hire a certified professional chimney sweeper after checking the company’s BBB ratings and several reviews available online. 

Update Light Fixtures

Another good way of sprucing up your home is by improving interior and exterior lighting to ensure safety and comfort. The interior lights can be added in the living spaces, indoor entryway, kitchen and bedrooms, while the exterior lighting can be improved all over the compound. With the help of entryway fixtures, landscape lighting and porch lights, your visitors will easily locate your home, while interior chandeliers will transform the look of your home. 

Clean Your Windows

It’s probably been a while since you last cleaned your windows, as they always happen to be one of the most neglected parts of the house. There is no substantial reason why you can’t make your windows sparkle and shine as you try to improve the look of your home. You can make use of dish soap, clean water in a bucket and a sponge to thoroughly wipe down the window and make it sparkling clean. 


Whether the goal is to sell your home or remodel it for your use, improving your home should always be a priority. Using the tips mentioned above will help you improve the look of your home and its environment.
