Getting anything substantial done while the kids are running around the house on summer break is just unrealistic. Clutter covers the floors, food is flung around the kitchen and toys line the driveway. When that first school bus pulls up and the kids are off for the new year, it’s finally time to get things in order. If you’ve been putting off some much-needed housework, we’re here to help you prioritize.
Update Floors You Deem an Eyesore
Floors are incredibly important to the flow and look of your home. Outdated, worn-out flooring can tarnish an otherwise beautiful space. Unfortunately, hiring a pro to refinish your room can be out of the budget. If you have a few spare hours and the right DIY rental equipment, you can save plenty of money and complete the project yourself. Whether you need to steam the carpets, sand and refinish the hardwood floors or even install tiles, you’re fully capable of getting the job done on your own.
Pressure Wash Your Walkway and Driveway
Can you even remember the last time your driveway received a deep clean? If the answer is no, then it’s been too long! Before dropping a hew hundred (or thousand!) bucks on a professional pressure washer, simply rent the equipment and do it yourself. Pressure washing can easily be completed on your own with the help of DIY Rental’s great selection of pressure washers.
Replace Cabinet Hardware
Cabinets are a simple area of your home that can be quickly updated. Sometimes, all it takes is a fresh coat of paint and some new knobs. Replacing your cabinet hardware is really simple with the right tools. If the previous screw holes line up with the replacement ones, you’ll have no problems at all. If not, familiarize yourself with a drill to get the cabinets sized for the new handles and hinges.
Steam the Carpet to Reveal its Original Color
You should steam your carpet every 12-18 months, depending on the foot traffic in your home. After the holidays, your carpet is likely in desperate need of some TLC. Skip the pros and rent the same carpet steamers they use and do it yourself. This is one of the DIY Rental team’s favorite ways to save some money throughout the year.
Replace the Lights in Your Ceiling
Ceiling lights don’t require an electrician to replace when you have the right tools and do a little research. Shut off the circuit breaker, take your time and swap out the ceiling lights as an easy renovation effort in the kitchen space. This is a great way to give your home a fresh look at a very low price.
Add an Accent Wall in the Living Space
Everything from white shiplap to fun wallpapers are great accent wall trends that are here to stay. Homes from Ponte Vedra to Avondale can add this valuable update and stay within a tight budget. When you choose to complete this home remodel on your own, all you need to pay for is the materials and rental equipment.
Partner with DIY Rental to Get the Job Done Right
