Tip of the Month: Home Improvements to Tackle During Social Distancing

April 8, 2020

With the threat of coronavirus looming, families around the globe are doing their part by staying at home. It’s a strange time, but it has provided us with unique opportunities. Many of us are working from home, or taking a break from work. We’ve been given time to bond with family members around the house, and we have more time to reach out to distant family members through phone calls, video chats, and other means.

It’s also likely that we have more downtime than ever, and you can only watch your favorite Netflix series so many times before it gets stale. If you’re like many Americans during this pandemic, you may be looking for a project to keep yourself busy while improving your home. Today, we’re going to offer up some ideas. In the meantime, stay safe, stay home, and enjoy the company you have!

Prepare Your Garden

Now’s the perfect time to till soil, plant veggies and herbs, and make the most of your garden plot. If you don’t have a garden, now’s the time to make one! You can create simple, raised beds with four sturdy boards, rebar rammed into the earth, and hardware to hold the rebar in place. Or, simply till up a section of your property and mix in topsoil for an impromptu garden — you can make it look pretty once stay-at-home orders have lifted. April is the perfect time to plant squash, pumpkins, cucumbers, spinach, peas, lettuce, and much more! Get the whole family outdoors and involved!

Fix Up Furniture

Do you have furniture that’s damaged, broken, or just dirty? It’s time to make it look as though it were brand new. Often, you can fix up broken and damaged furniture with wood glue, wood scraps, and a few screws. If you have surface blemishes, clean and sand the surface, and add a fresh coat of stain. If you have the supplies, you can even create your own furniture. During these times, folks are opting to create workstations and tool benches for their kids, so they can work on their own projects too!

Spring Cleaning

cleaning supplies 5e8df2f6ebdaf - Tip of the Month: Home Improvements to Tackle During Social Distancing - Horner PaintingThere may never be a better time to give the house a thorough cleaning. Work through room after room to pick out items that you really don’t need, and start a donation pile. Box up items that you consider clutter, things your kids have outgrown, clothes you don’t wear, and other belongings that haven’t been used for a year or more. Once you’ve cut out all the clutter, you can get to work with a broom, sponge, vacuum, and plenty of elbow grease and give the whole house a deep cleaning. This is definitely the perfect time to have the kids lend a helping hand!

Have Your Home Exterior Painted

While you may not have the tools to paint your home yourself, home painters are still at work, since it’s possible to remain socially distant while painting a home exterior. Consider having your home painted while there’s time! Unlike getting your roof replaced or performing a renovation, home painting isn’t noisy, and the painter won’t get in the way. Paint your home exterior if you notice chipping or cracked paint, if you have damaged siding, or if you simply want to change the color of your home exterior.
