As the weather warms, plenty of families are getting their tools together and thinking about their next big home improvement project. Maybe you’re thinking of finally tackling that kitchen remodel you’ve been dreaming of. Or perhaps it’s time to finally start building that deck you’ve wanted for years.
But then again, maybe you’re just starting out with your home improvement endeavours. Taking on a project yourself rather than hiring a contractor is a scary proposition. But not to worry! We’ve put together a list of home improvement projects that are a little easier to take on than a full-on room remodel.
Regardless of whether you’re just getting started or you’re a seasoned home improvement veteran, you’ll likely need a hand in the waste disposal department. Here are five project ideas that’ll be made a lot easier with an affordable bin rental from Miller Bins:
Dump Your Old Carpeting
Pulling up your old carpeting and opting for the elegance of hardwood flooring is one of the best ways to make a big impact on your home without taking on a months-long remodel. Hardwood flooring gives your home a warm, timeless character that’s easier to maintain than carpeting, and this is one of the best starter projects for those wanting to dip their toes into home improvement.
Put In Some New Kitchen Cabinets
A kitchen remodel is a daunting task. You need to apply for permits, buy new appliances, not to mention deal with the electrical and plumbing. Some kitchen remodels can take over a year to complete.
Instead, consider starting with just your kitchen cabinets. Upgrading your cabinetry can do wonders to open up your space, provide you with more storage and thoroughly change the ambience of your kitchen without all the overhead of a full remodel.
Create a Breakfast Bar
Another great way to improve your kitchen is by putting in a breakfast bar. If you have the space for it, a breakfast bar is a great way to expand your countertops, giving you more space to eat or prepare food and entertain your guests. Consider dropping in some vintage bar stools or using a contrasting counter top to really make this new addition yours.
Upgrade Your Natural Lighting
If you’re a little more ambitious, you might consider renovating your windows. Pulling out your old ones and putting in some beautiful floor-to-ceiling windows or maybe a nice bay window opens up your home, letting in the natural light to completely transform your living space.
Give Your Attic an Overhaul
For those that truly want to tackle something big, the attic is a perfect space to sink your home improvement teeth into. It’s out of the way from the rest of the home, so you won’t disrupt things if it takes longer than necessary. And there’s a lot you can do with an attic: Create a new living space or den, or maybe turn it into a spare bedroom. Or maybe it’s time to build that dedicated office space for working from home. The possibilities are endless!
Don’t Forget About the Waste
Home improvement is intimidating, even if you’ve taken on projects before. But there are few things as rewarding as bringing the vision of it into reality. Just don’t forget—home improvement produces a lot of waste and dealing with it is a headache. Be sure to make your next home project a lot easier by renting a disposal bin from Miller Bins.
