COVID-19 Home Improvement Projects

Posted in: General

NO MORE PROCRASTINATION

Americans are staying home more and while they are hunkering down, they are tackling those long-awaited home improvement projects. Contractors are busier than ever and home improvement stores are bustling with DIYers. In fact, according to the Wall Street Journal, "Daily foot traffic to Home Depot stores since April has been running at least 35% above last year’s, according to Unacast Inc., which tracks location data from 25 million cellphones on any given day. In 26 states, traffic doubled following a surge in late May." If this sounds like you, read on because we have some easy and affordable updates that you can complete all on your own.


SWAP ‘EM

Swap out those old dated curtain rods for seamless curtain tracks and freshen up the room with new curtains. Curtain tracks, unlike rods, can be mounted to the ceiling or the wall and the smooth track allows for seamless opening and closing due to the curtain carriers or glides. These carriers help the curtains smoothly - and quietly - glide along the track, unlike large curtain rings that are often found on curtain rods. Curtain tracks are also extremely durable as they are affixed in various places along the track. With curtain rods, the bracket can easily pull out of the wall causing you to take on a whole new project: drywall repair.

LOOK UP

Studies show that the average person spends at least 30 minutes in the bathroom every day. If that sounds accurate to you, maybe it's time to switch out that tired curtain rod and update your bathroom by adding a ceiling mount curtain track, drop chains and a sleek new shower curtain? For many of the same reasons listed above, curtain tracks are super sturdy and they look great, plus they create a sleek, modern and fresh look to your bathroom.

LOOK OUTSIDE

Curtain tracks aren't just for living rooms and bathrooms, they can be used outside. Adding curtain tracks and weatherproof curtains to your porch or pergola can help protect against the hot afternoon sun and windy days and they also allow for privacy. Some great products for a project like this include: the 3120 Heavy Duty Curtain Track in Silver, the 7127 Stainless Steel End Stops, 7140 Large Double Wheel Carriers and 7142 Stainless Steel Curtain Hooks.
