Small improvements can pay off
Have you thought about the differences between improving your homes decor,
versus making upgrades you know will increase your home’s resale value?
Doing a little bit of both can pay off.
Make a list of upgrades for your home and upgrades for yourself. Then go
through the list and try and even out how many you do of each. This takes
away from picking a random project and doing it. This gives you more
structure to what your doing and making yourself more happy in the
process and bringing more value to your home.
One room at a time
Having trouble dating on task with a project or not knowing where to start?
Make a list of what each room needs to have done and then break it down into
categories of how much time you need and cost.
The more planning you have around it the more likely you are to get it done. If
you know how much time and money it will cost to paint your bathroom this
Saturday, you’re more likely to get it done then if you are still deciding what
project to tackle at noon.
