Quick & Budget Friendly Changes:
After the holidays, the last thing you probably want to think about is making a huge investment to update your home and the great news is, you don’t have to! We have a few suggestions of things you can do in just a short block of time (a month, or sometimes a day or week) to have your home feeling fresh to start the new year.
- Get organized and go clutter-free! This project can cost little to no money and will have you feeling lighter and more prepared to take on the new year. Consider tackling one room at a time and get rid of things you don’t need and simply organize and store the items you’re keeping. Putting systems in place now will make tidying up throughout the year much easier!
- Freshen the Paint If your home is feeling dull and drab and in need of an update, consider freshening the paint. Don’t want to tackle a whole room? Maybe your furniture or cabinets need a facelift, update the finish or change the color to completely transform your room. ($180-$1500/room, depending on scope of project)*
- Shed Some Light on the Subject Changing the lighting in a room can change the whole look. You can swap out entire fixtures or lamps, or just consider changing the kind of bulbs you use for a different light temperature. If you’re looking to bring in MORE light, consider adding mirrors to help reflect more of the existing light and brighten your space. ($80-$400/room)*
- Add some Pizzaz! Sometimes it’s fun to just change up the décor elements in your space. Look up some of the hottest new design trends for 2018 and see how you can use them in your space. Swap things like curtains, rugs, throw pillows, and blankets for a budget friendly update of your space. ($400 – $1200/room)*
If you’re doing more than swapping lights and décor items, consider Go-Mini’s of Augusta for your short-term storage needs. Our easy-to-load containers are the perfect at-home solution for your project. You can load and unload items, as needed, without leaving your home, and when you’re done just call us and we can come pick up your container!
New Year, New Design!
If you’re more in the “go big, or go home” mindset and are considering an all-out home renovation or restoration of your home in 2018, Go-Mini’s can help with that too! Our Month-to-month rental options allow you to keep your container as long as you need, and you can even opt to keep it on site OR keep it at our location while you’re working through your project(s). Our containers come in 3 different sizes, so you only have to rent the space you need for your project! It’s a great way to store furniture, housewares, and even some of your tools and project items as you’re working through your renovation. According to the 2017 U.S. Houzz & Home Renovation Trends Study, some of the most popular spaces for all-out renovations are the kitchen, living room, and master suite. These spaces are no small undertaking and often mean lots of items in your home will need a temporary place to live while you make the magic happen. According to Houzz, kitchen renovations took an average of 13 months to complete, living rooms took about 11 months, and master suites (bedroom, bathroom, closet) came in at about 10 months. Even if your planned project timeline is much shorter, the flexibility of Go-Mini’s means you won’t have to move your stuff back into your space until you’re ready. No matter your home project plans for 2018, we wish you the best of luck, and as you’re planning, we hope you consider Go Mini’s of Augusta for all of your temporary, on-site storage needs!
