Interest in
home improvement has reached unpreceded levels throughout the COVID-19 pandemic because people
finally have the time and opportunity to make changes they’ve thought about for

1. Paint Your Walls

The easiest way to change your walls is to paint them, and these days, that task is faster than ever.

You used to
have to apply primer before the top coat, but primer and paint all-in-one cans have simplified
painting for lots of homeowners.

Better yet,
pick an all-in-one can with an antimicrobial mildew-resistant finish, which is
great for kitchens, bathrooms, trim and cabinets.

Having a neat backyard doesn’t require a big budget — just give everything its proper place.

Most plans to declutter seem to focus on the home’s
interior, but the exterior is just as important to consider. After all, less
backyard clutter means more enjoyable outdoor living.

durable edge.
