Who doesn’t love spring? The weather is warming up, the greenery is coming back, and you have long, sunny days ahead to clean and rejuvenate your home! With all the pent-up energy from winter finally ready to break out, it’s time to break in some new looks for your home.
1 – Update & Refresh Your Kitchen!
You don’t have to pull out all the appliances and replace them (unless you want to). You can easily update your kitchen and give a breath of fresh air by replacing or painting your cabinets (you can even get veneer coverings to give it a classic 50’s edge on a budget), replace gadgets to more fashionable models, and change out your faucet and fixtures to give it a “newer” feel without the cost. Adding little touches like spring-themed dish towels, place settings, and kitchen rugs can also give it that awesome spring feel.
2 – Add That Much Needed Room.
Finding a good time to do this can be tough. With the potentiality that you’ll have walls demolished, winter and summer can be awful to undertake this project in. However, if you’re living in a multi-generational home, or even if you’re looking to add a little extra value, this is a fantastic option for you. It can also be great if your college graduate or parents are needing a place to stay. Even if you never use it for another person, it makes for great hobby or storage space, or as a playroom!
3 – Level Up with Wood Flooring.
This is another project that is best done in spring when you can throw the windows and doors open and enjoy a refreshing breeze. It’s the perfect time to sand and refinish current wood flooring or install wood flooring where carpet or tile used to reside. All the dust and debris would normally put this project off until last, but now’s the season to finally get that beautiful wood flooring in order!
4 – Put Up (Not Off!) Drywall!
Whether you’re looking to make the creepy attic more inviting or transform your storage-riddled basement into additional living space, spring is the best time to tackle drywall projects. Just like with wood flooring, you will probably want to let things “air out” for a while. Now that the warm (but not too hot) weather is here, you can safely air out your house while you do the big restoration and renovation projects!
5 – Affordable Window Treatments, Please!
This is a great and affordable way to really refresh your home’s look without breaking the bank. From professional to press on tints, you can get fresh, new-looking windows at a fraction of the cost of actual new windows. There are even some DIY window tints that incorporate elaborate designs and color schemes. This can be great for dining rooms, kids’ rooms, and the bathroom.
6 – A New Pallet Can Really Make a Splash.
Both classic and affordable, one of the best ways to update your home during a spring cleaning and renovation streak is to change up the colors in your house. This can be anything from new paints to throw pillows, area rugs to lamp shades. Typically, vibrant, bold shades are what spring is all about!
7 – Show Your Driveway Some Love!
Between all the harsh rain, sleet, snow, plowing and driving that your poor driveway has been through all fall and winter long, it could really be showing some wear and tear. Now is the perfect time to redo or resurface your driveway as the warm spring weather is great for these types of projects. It will allow for your driveway to set properly and in a timely manner.
