Fall weekends in Myrtle Beach are perfect for pumpkin carving, hayrides, football games and– you guessed it–home improvement! The milder autumn weather is ideal for getting small updates done around the house before the holidays begin. Here are four quick home improvement projects to tackle this fall:
Deep clean carpets
It might not be the most exciting project, but spending a fall weekend deep cleaning your carpets is a wise investment of your time. Either hire a professional or rent a carpet cleaner from a local hardware store. With the summer humidity past and the colder winter days still a few months away, you’ll have great temperatures to open your windows and air out the room. While your carpets are drying, get outside and enjoy the beauty of fall in Myrtle Beach!
Revamp your entryway
Fall and winter are the prime seasons for inviting guests into your home. Before the holiday rush starts, take a weekend to refresh your home’s entryway. Start by adding a new coat of paint to your front door, both the inside and the outside. Consider adding a mudroom type bench with hooks for coats and bags and storage underneath for shoes. Repaint the interior walls a warm, inviting color. Add some candles, pumpkins and a wreath, and your home will be holiday-hosting ready!
If you have an older home, you may be literally tossing money out the window when it comes to air conditioning. Many homes built before the 21st century have single-pane instead of double-pane windows. Take advantage of the mild autumn temperatures and make your home up to 50 percent more energy efficient by upgrading to double-pane windows this fall.
Organize your garage
Spring may be the go-to season for cleaning, but Myrtle Beach falls are also perfect for a garage cleanout. You’ve most likely got lawn tools, beach chairs, bicycles and more littering your garage and taking up space. Install shelving for tools and supplies and hooks to hang bicycles from the ceiling. You’ll thank yourself later when the temperatures begin to dip and you can actually fit your car in your garage.
