Spring cleaning is always popular, but what about spring home improvement projects? With a new GMC truck, you may just be motivated to start some new projects around the house. Ranging from the basics to more complex home improvement activities, there are a few things you should keep in mind. Below are just some of the most popular projects to take on during the spring.
According to Better Homes and Gardens, one of the most important projects you should do is donate or recycle. This is especially easy if you have a truck that can haul large loads. Look for plastic, cardboard, and other recyclable materials. You should also find electronics like cell phones and old computers to recycle as well—called e-waste—as these can take a particularly harsh toll on the environment.
Next, paint inside your house. After cleaning up your home, you may be motivated to make some changes. Try out some new color palettes, but also be sure to consider how new colors will blend with the rest of the house. One of the most important tips we can provide on this is to apply plenty of primer. Much like cars, paint will appear much more vivid if applied over a primer layer.
Finally, get a new front door. This might sound a little odd, but your front door is one of the most defining features of your home. If you haven’t had a new door in a while, it might be time to add some more character to your house. Plus, it’s especially easy to haul a door in a GMC truck—one you can easily find at Trent Cadillac Buick GMC.
