3 Home Improvements to Tackle in 2020 | St. Johns Bank

When a new year comes around, there are a number of things we want to do—lose weight, make more money, start a new hobby. But have you ever thought about what you could do for your home in the new year?

Our team at St. Johns Bank wants you to consider making your house a home in 2020 by tackling a few home improvement projects you have probably put on the back burner for years. Here are a few small ideas that can make a big impact.

There Is Nothing Like a New Coat of Paint

Whether you paint the walls of your home a new color, or you even just repaint the room the same color it already is, there is nothing like a new coat of paint on the walls to help your home feel more alive and vibrant.

As the years go by, life happens. There are fingerprints, chips and other imperfections. Fortunately, paint is budget-friendly yet can make a huge impact on the look and feel of a home. Don’t be afraid to try something bold and new!

Turn Your Home Into a Smart Home

Your home is just fine as it is, but wouldn’t you enjoy having a smart home? What about having a smaller energy bill each month? Of course you would—and a smart thermostat can help you do just that!

When you utilize a smart thermostat, you are better able to control (and adjust) the temperature in your home so that you can be as comfortable as possible. Plus, a smart thermostat can help make your home more energy-efficient and help you save on your energy bills each month.

Let There Be Light

Another way you can improve your home while also improving your finances is by upgrading the lighting in your home. Did you know that around 25% of your home’s overall energy cost is due to lighting?

Reduce that number by considering replacing your current light bulbs with LED bulbs that use less than one-third of the electricity! These bulbs require a larger initial investment, but pay off in the long run.
