3 Home Improvement Ideas For Spring In Nashville, TN04/25/2016Stefano Diotaiuti Henry Rollins said, “In winter, I plot and plan. In spring, I move.” If you’re like me, every spring you want to fling open the windows and scrub everything down so that your home looks its best. Here are 3 home improvement tips for spring in Nashville to give your home a fresh start. 1. Do A Spring Checkup For Energy Efficiency And Safety Spring is one of the best times to make sure your home’s systems are ready for the summer. Homeowners in Nashville should inspect these things each spring: HVAC System. Test out your air conditioning system to check that it’s ready for the coming summer heat. Swap out your furnace and air conditioning filters to improve your HVAC system’s energy efficiency. Some HVAC companies provide this service for a low fee. Smoke Detectors. Test your carbon monoxide and smoke alarms to keep your home and loved ones safe. Put fresh batteries in your alarms in the spring and in the fall. Caulking and Windows. Check the caulking around doors, windows, and kitchen and bathroom fixtures for holes or cracks. Replace the caulking as needed. Put in window treatments, such as plantation shutters, to improve your window’s energy efficiency and temperature control. Open up all your windows to ensure that they can easily move. 2. Give Your House A Deep Clean So That It Shines If you want to see your house really shine, give it a deep clean. First, declutter all of your rooms to open up the space. Then clean areas you don’t scrub regularly.These areas include floors, kitchen and bathroom walls, baseboards, and ceiling fans. Wipe your kitchen and bathroom fixtures until they shine. Vacuum your furniture, and clean under and behind it. Bring in more natural light by cleaning your windows. Wipe down your screens and windows to get rid of dirt and grime. Clean your window treatments including shutters, draperies, and shades. You can give your window blinds a lift with an ultrasonic cleaning treatment. 3. Give Your Rooms a New Look By Redecorating Now that you’ve cleaned your house and decluttered it, it’s time for the fun part: redecorating. The simplest way to redecorate is to start with what you have. Rearrange your furniture to update the room’s look. Or try shopping your house, which means switching out the accessories and furniture you already own between rooms. Add more color to your rooms with bright accessories, new paint, and live plants.
