Make Your Stay-At-Home Time Rewarding
Many of us across the country have been faced with one common question: what can we do during this time when the safest place to be—due to the Coronavirus pandemic—is at home? It’s easy to feel trapped at home if you’ve got nothing to do with your time. So here are a few ways to spend your time wisely.
First, if you’ve always had a dream of custom building your own home, this is a perfect time to start making it real. Custom building is on the rise, despite the pandemic, and the main reason is that interest rates are at an all-time low. Planning your new home takes time, and that’s what a lot of us have now at home. Many builders have adapted to the “new normal” by offering virtual tours of their models and communicating online with their customers.
Second, if you already have a home, invest your time in those DIY projects you’ve put off for too long. This will not only help you pass the time, at the end of the day (or days), you’ll feel accomplished, and you’ll actually have increased the value of your home—not to mention its comfort and beauty. What about adding some new colors to your walls? This is an activity the whole family can participate in and help create positive memories for everyone. Maybe it’s time to give your home a new look with a new front door, or with modern energy efficient lighting, or how about replacing that old water heater that always runs out of hot water before you’re done with showering?
Matt’s Building Materials’ stores are open for walk-in business and adhere to the current safety rules of mandatory facemasks and social distancing, but if you prefer to not leave your home to shop, visit their website, and use their convenient chatline to get help with your shopping.
Turn your short-term DIY projects into long-term value for your home and reap the benefits of making your home more comfortable and enjoyable—especially now when we are all spending more or our time in our homes.
