Congratulations! You just purchased a new home! A new home is a great way to start the next exciting chapter for your family. However, unless you’ve worked with a builder and it’s a brand-new home, you will likely have a few things you’ll want to change. No home is perfect, and most new homeowners enjoy the opportunity to insert their own personal style. To get a jump on things, here are three home renovation projects that will be easier to get done before you move in, brought to you by your friends at Claghorn Custom Flooring.
Whether you hate the carpet in the upstairs bedrooms or the linoleum in the kitchen makes you cringe, it will be much easier to tackle those projects before moving day. Even if you feel overwhelmed with all the decisions right now, your future self will thank you for taking care of the flooring now, before there is furniture to move and construction dust all over your belongings. Set up the installation of new flooring a day or two before you move in. To prevent the movers from tracking in dirt or scratching the wood, cover the new flooring with mats, tarps, or area rugs. Then, you’ll feel completely at home once the furniture is in place.
Painting an empty room is much simpler, whether you do it yourself or hire someone to do it. There won’t be a need to rearrange the furniture, take the drapes down, clean the closets, or remove each and every painting and mirror from the walls. In addition, if you’ll be doing the work yourself, give yourself a few days to repaint before the movers arrive. Work of this kind always takes longer than you anticipate.
3. Closet Systems
Finally, if you aren’t happy with the current shelving options in your closet, it’s best to get that sorted out before all your stuff takes over the space. Even if you promise yourself, you’ll come back to this project one day, it will just be much simpler to get it done prior to move-in day. It will be worth it when you move your clothes into a beautiful closet system with double hanging rods, drawers, and shelves that reach the ceiling.
