Home maintenance plays a key role in ensuring your house will impress both now and in the future. If you establish a home maintenance budget today, you can reduce the risk of spending too much to find ways to keep your residence looking neat and tidy.

Ultimately, creating a home maintenance budget can be simple – here are three tips to help you craft an effective home maintenance budget.

1. Assess Your Home Maintenance Needs

Home maintenance generally varies from house to house. Thus, the home maintenance needs of a mansion owner are unlikely to match those of a condo owner.

Think about what types of home maintenance that you need to perform. That way, you can determine exactly what you'll need to do to maintain your residence for years to come.

It often helps to examine each room of your house, as well as your home's exterior. Then, you can better understand different aspects of your home and what you'll need to do to achieve the optimal home care results.

2. Make a Home Maintenance Checklist

A checklist is a terrific option for any homeowner who wants to limit his or her home maintenance expenses. This checklist will enable you to determine the home maintenance tasks that you'll need to complete and the expenses associated with them.

For example, if you want to maintain a lush garden in your backyard, you may need to purchase assorted gardening supplies. Conversely, if your bedroom has carpet, you'll want to pick up a vacuum that you can use to keep the carpet dirt- and dust-free.

It also may be a good idea to update your home maintenance checklist regularly. If you perform home upgrades, your home maintenance needs may change. As such, you'll want to revise your home maintenance checklist to account for various home upgrades over time.

3. Establish Home Maintenance Priorities

Whereas cleaning your swimming pool may need to be done periodically during summertime, mowing the front lawn likely needs to be done much more frequently. Fortunately, if you have home maintenance priorities in place, you can budget your time and resources appropriately.

As you craft your home maintenance budget, you should consider your home care expertise as well. If you don't feel comfortable performing certain home maintenance projects, it may be worthwhile to hire professionals to complete these tasks for you. And if you decide to hire professionals, you probably will need to account for additional costs in your home maintenance budget.

With a home maintenance budget, you'll be better equipped than ever before to ensure your house dazzles day after day. Plus, if you decide to sell your house, you'll be in a great position to maximize its value.

Lastly, if you plan to list your home, you may want to contact a real estate agent sooner rather than later. This real estate professional can help you prepare your residence for the housing market and provide expert home selling tips. As a result, a real estate agent will make it easy for you to list your house and enjoy a quick, profitable home selling experience.

When a loved one needs a bit more help to get around the house, whether they have simple physical limitations or rely on the use of a wheelchair, you’re going to need to make some major changes both inside and outside the home. You may be overwhelmed with the idea that you need to overhaul your entire home in order to make suitable accommodations. The good news is that you can boost safety around the property and make your home easier for you or loved ones to get around without huge renovation projects that will take months at a time. Below, you’ll find some of the most important projects that will need to be completed in order to make a home handicap accessible as well as safe and healthy.

Check The Doorways

If wheelchair use is part of the accommodation, you’ll need to check the width of the doorways. Some doorways may need to be modified in order for wheelchairs to move freely about the home. Widening doorways can cost anywhere between $500-$1,000 to complete depending on where the throughway is in the home. 

Adjust The Showers

The safest way to make a shower handicap accessible to is make it a walk in tub or a wheelchair accessible tub. Depending upon the extent of the accommodations that are needed, you can go a cheaper route and install a bench seat in an existing shower. Hand rails can also be added to the tub for extra safety.

Think Of The Entire Bathroom

The simple addition of grab bars can make a big difference in the safety of a bathroom. Make sure that the bars are installed in easy to reach places. Also any supplies that are needed in the bathroom like soaps, shampoos, and toothpaste should be easy to reach. A toilet riser can also be considered to help people who have issues bending down in order to make the toilet easier to use. 

Don’t Forget The Kitchen     

The kitchen should be a place where accommodations for handicap individuals are definitely present. First, all supplies should be easy to reach. Next, appliances should be adjusted accordingly. Grab bars should also be installed in the kitchen to make safety a priority and accessibility easy.

Install Ramps

Whether or not a disabled person uses a wheelchair, installing a ramp can make a huge difference in the home for a disabled individual. Converting stairways to ramps actually isn’t as expensive as you might think it would be, with costs starting at just $100 for a basic ramp. Custom ramps can run a bit more expensive- as much as $1,000. These make it easier for disabled people to get in and out of the home or around the inside of the home with ease. The total cost can vary based on the size of the ramp and the type of materials being used.

Mind The Floors

To make a home handicap accessible, thick carpets should be removed. Any types of flooring that make it hard to maneuver a wheelchair or walker should be modified.
