Springtime brings a revitalized look to the world. Why not follow suit with the appearance of your home? Below, we’ve put together a few home renovation ideas that will breathe signs of life back into your place.
Kick off spring in your neighborhood by updating your curb appeal. Winter can make the appearance of your home dull or lackluster, so now is the perfect time to do some basic upgrades.
For example, give your front porch a makeover and create a space where you and your family can enjoy spending quality time together. Make your front porch stand out by installing a gorgeous stone walkway up to the front steps of your home. Replace any external hardware like light fixtures, door handles, or railings to add to the fresh new look. To make the space look even more inviting, try adding some comfy outdoor furniture and greenery so you can sit back and relax on your newly updated front porch.
If necessary you can even replace your windows and update the siding of your home. These bigger projects are often the ones we push off the longest. However, they can also be the most impactful for adding value to your home. Depending on the state of your house, it may be worth reviewing interest rates and scheduling these projects around an opportune refinancing period. Allowing you to make an investment in your home without adding additional debt. Don’t let finances stop you from creating a home that is comfortable and welcoming.
After a long winter inside, many homeowners enjoy being in their yards as soon as the first signs of spring appear. There are many backyard landscaping ideas that could make your outdoor areas feel like an oasis. If you’re fortunate enough to have a larger yard you can build a deck or patio, and possibly connect it to your pool if you have one for easy access.
Summers spent outdoors in the backyard are truly memorable so creating a space that is functional, comfortable and fun is the best solution. If you plan on having cookouts or bonfires in the backyard, DIY a firepit. Bring some fresh produce to your cookouts this summer by planting a vegetable garden.
The exterior of your home isn’t the only place that may benefit from a spring makeover. Whether an entire room or just an accent wall, get rid of winter cabin fever by tackling an interior renovation. If you’re looking for some ideas on how you can give your interior some TLC start with the basics and give your walls a fresh coat of paint. A fresh layer of paint can liven up any room. Not only can you paint your walls but you can touch up any baseboards or ceiling trim as well.
If you want to focus on a specific area in your home like the kitchen start by making a list of what in the kitchen needs to be updated. There can be many things to consider, especially if you are tackling this renovation yourself. Learning how to DIY a backsplash, refinish your kitchen cabinets and replace your kitchen counters can save you a buck. As a finishing touch, update or deep-clean all of the hardware in your kitchen like faucets, and doorknobs.
An easy way to create a clean, bright feeling in your home is to update your decor. Paying attention to small details makes it possible to revamp a home’s interior without replacing everything you own. Here are some ideas to fling your interior design into spring.
Dark tones, like reds or browns, make things feel warm and cozy, but heavy. To create an airy, spring-like feeling, use brighter colors. Similarly, patterns and types of fabric are important to consider. Exchange heavy fabrics and busy patterns, like plaid on wool, with simple patterns on light materials, such as floral patterned linen.
Not sure where to start? Instead of buying decorative pillows for every season, try buying pillow covers that match your ideal decor. Many retailers have inexpensive options for every season that you can swap out, wash, and reuse time and time again on pillows that you already own.
Spring can be in bloom all over your space by bringing in live plants or flowers. A few succulents, a potted leafy plant, or a bouquet of flowers will do the trick. If you don’t have a green thumb, consider floral artwork or fabrics.
While you may not know it, the smell of your home is the first thing that greets guests when they arrive. Use air fresheners or candles to incorporate an aroma reminiscent of fresh springtime air. Floral scents like lavender, jasmine, or rose, and citrus scents like lemon or orange blossom are perfect for bringing in the new season.
While getting your home ready for spring, it’s smart to get organized. Organization is a key component to making your home feel cleaner and more open and may help you feel less stressed. In addition, spring cleaning has health benefits like promoting better sleep, easier breathing, and increased productivity.
Here are some simple ideas to include in your spring cleaning checklist:
Making the transition from winter to spring at home does not have to be stressful. With a solid plan, motivation, and a little bit of help if you need it, your home will be ready for warmer days in no time.
