Fall Into Your Home To Do List
Fall is the time for ordering pumpkin spice-flavored everything, scrolling through apple orchard photos on Pinterest and enjoying the beautiful autumn scenery. But the leaves and the weather don’t need to be the only things to change this season. As the cooler temperatures send you indoors, fall also can be the perfect time to roll up your sleeves and tackle those home improvement projects you’ve been putting off all summer.
Not sure where to start? Here are a few project ideas to help get your home feeling and looking fabulous before winter arrives.
An Elevated Shower
Winter the Weather Wisely
No one wants to spend money on high energy bills, but according to ENERGY STAR, U.S. households can save up to 10 percent on annual heating and cooling costs by sealing air leaks and adding insulation around the home.
And don’t stop there – simple tasks, such as replacing worn-out caulk, insulating your outlets, and prepping your windows with plastic cling for the winter months can contribute to reducing your home electric bills as well.
Quick and Convenient Kitchen Upgrades
Cool weather means less barbequing and more indoor cooking; and as the entertaining hub and family gathering place, it’s no wonder the kitchen is a popular renovation project. What are homeowners looking to update? According to the 2019 Houzz Kitchen Trends Study, 83 percent of renovations include replacing faucets and plumbing fixtures.
From prep to clean-up, the kitchen faucet is a major workhorse – and a focal point – in the kitchen. So, if you’re living with a dated fixture, it might be time for an upgrade. Pulldown faucets are a popular choice, such as the Sleek kitchen faucet from Moen. Available in a new Black Stainless finish, this clean, modern design adds eye-catching appeal to any kitchen, plus coordinates well with other kitchen appliances, regardless of finish. To help save time and energy at the sink, the faucet features Moen’s Power Boost spray technology, which fills containers faster and provides 50 percent more spray power compared to Moen faucets without the Power Boost or Power Clean technologies, for quicker clean-up with the push of a button.
