Home improvement ideas and tips

It’s that time of year where a lot of us have more spare time on our hands. If you do and you’d like to spend some of that time improving your home, then there are plenty of things you can do. Read on to find out about our Mount Isa home improvement ideas and tips to help you.

Indoor home improvement ideas

You probably spend more time inside your home than anywhere else, so it’s a logical place to start! Here are some simple indoor Mt Isa home improvement ideas.

A fresh coat of paint inside can really improve the feel of a home. Choose light colours to give your home a more open and spacious feel.

Transform a spare room
If you have a spare room that has turned into a junk room over the years, then take the opportunity to get rid of your junk and turn it into a spare bedroom instead.

Invest in new bed linen
New bed linen is not only more comfortable when you’re sleeping, it can also lift the feel of a room. High quality bed covers can really add to a bedroom’s appeal.

Get some oil diffusers
Oil diffusers help you to create the mood and smells that you want in your home. There’s a huge range of oil diffusers available these days to suit any taste, and they don’t cost much.

Get some artwork to hang on your walls
Artwork can also help you to improve the internal look of your home. Choose some paintings that you like and hang them on your walls. Or if you’re not into art, hang some framed photos instead.

Get some new furniture
New furniture can really lift the inside of a home. And you can do it a room at a time if you’re on a budget, rather than all at once.

Get some new flooring
New flooring can create an entirely new feel for a home if you go for a different style. For example, timber floors or tiles instead of carpet.

Outdoor home improvement ideas

The outside of your home is what other people most often see, so it makes sense to get it looking as presentable as possible. Here are some simple outdoor home improvement ideas.

A fresh coat of paint can help to give any home a much needed facelift, especially if it’s been a while and you have peeling paint. Even if you don’t, changing your colour scheme can help to give your home a new look.

Create (or refresh) your outdoor entertainment area
Outdoor entertaining areas can enhance any home. If you don’t already have one, why not get some quotes. Or if you do have an outdoor entertaining area that’s looking a bit tired, why not spruce it up?

Do some landscaping
Some creative landscaping can also make a big difference to the outdoor appeal of your home. Gardens with well chosen plants can become a real feature.

Get a shed (or refresh your current one)
Every Mount Isa home deserves a shed! If you don’t already have one, why not get some quotes? And if you do have one, chances are you might not have cleaned it out in a while. Why not take the opportunity to store and organise your ‘shed stuff’ better when you do.

Get a pool
You can swim just about all year round in Mount Isa, so why not get a pool so you can enjoy your time at home more?

Get some solar panels
Solar panels can help you to save on your electricity costs and they can also increase the value of your home if you’re thinking about selling in the future.
