October Home News

October Home NewsWith October almost done, as with any month, we find ourselves reflecting on the previous 30 or 31 days. We take a look at what we’ve done well, at what we could have done differently, what is exciting us about the month ahead and what’s going on in the world around us. That last item tends to vary day to day, but that hasn’t deterred The Valley Windows team from continuing to strive to be experts in everything related to your home – especially your windows and doors. So, we know that you’ve been dying to check the site and find another round-up of our favourite home news. We bet you’ve been checking every day. Worry not, it’s that time. Read on for the best information we’ve found this month about turning your house into a home:

Thinking of retiring sometime soon? Well, first of all, we’re sort of jealous, but we also want to make sure that you’re equipped properly for the next chapter of your life. You’re going to be spending a lot more time around home and it should be the place that you want to spend your time. Time is the other key word here – you may have a bit more of it on your hands, hence the perfect time to think through what projects you want to focus on. There’s something really satisfying about finishing a project by yourself, we want to set you up for success. Scroll through this slideshow for options like replacing your garage door (helpful for both you and others), adding to your deck so you can enjoy the outside and adjustments to the kitchen.

Conversely, there are definitely home renovations that you want to avoid. They may seem like a very good idea in theory, but when they’re put into practice, they’re either costly, timely or just downright stressful. Even if you’re part of the way into a project and you’re already hating the idea, there are options to pump the brakes and halt the work. This article takes a look at the home renovation projects that you maybe shouldn’t embark on right now. That’s not to say that you can’t tackle them in the future, it’s about being realistic. Moreover, it’s about respecting your wallet and we’ll help you do so. Shocker? (or not so much…) bathroom remodels top the list.

We love a good pun, but we swear that we didn’t pick this article just because of its name. It’s bizarre to think that 2020 is almost over and that 2021 is right around the corner, but it’s true. We’ll save all of the salutations and reflections for future posts but it’s never too early to talk about trends and what will be popular next year. In the landscaping and gardening space, this article can be your go-to guide. Between new plant releases, planting safely during a pandemic and growing your own food, there is a lot to look forward to. Visit here to learn more.
