Overlooked Areas for Home Improvement

When it comes to home renovations, our minds default to the big stuff: gleaming kitchens, elegant bedrooms, and sprawling outdoor entertaining spaces. And while we’ll never tell you not to buy that Big Green Egg for the back porch (seriously, have you ever tasted a slow-cooked steak?), there are a few areas of the home in need of a little TLC. Next time you have some funds in your home improvement budget, consider these often overlooked spaces.

Areas for Your Next Home Improvement Project

  1. The entryway. It’s the first thing your guests see when they enter the home, but for many homeowners, it’s ordinary to the point of invisibility. If you’re not already used to the bare walls and cluttered shoes by the door, you probably come in through the garage door. Update the entryway for a quick, inexpensive home improvement project that will make a big difference.
  2. pressure washing the drivewayThe driveway. Homeowners worry endlessly about curb appeal, putting in new flowering shrubs and ripping them up mercilessly if they don’t perform. But if the driveway is cracked or caked in grime, no amount of gardening will make it look good. Start out by assessing the integrity of your driveway. Fix any cracks in the concrete. Then pressure wash the concrete to restore it to its crisp, clean color. Once that’s done, you can line it with flowers, shrubs, and garden ornaments to your heart’s content.
  3. The laundry room. If you’re like most people, you like to pretend the laundry room doesn’t exist unless you have a load in the wash. Laundry rooms are often dreary, cluttered affairs, making the task of weekly laundry seem like an insurmountable task. But with a little organization, a fresh coat of paint, and even a wall hanging or two, your laundry room can become as soft and welcoming as towels fresh out of the dryer.
