With the change to warmer weather and longer days, you may be raring to prepare your humble abode for the months ahead. Spring offers a full pallet of opportunities to work on your home and update its appearance, both inside and out. What you’re about to digest are some spring renovation project ideas that can boost your home’s functionality and aesthetic.
Say “Yes” to kitchen improvements
When people hear the words “kitchen remodel” their wallets start running for the hills. Kitchen improvements may sound like a costly and significant project, however, a few little changes here and there can turn your kitchen from drab to fab in no time. If you don’t want to get new cabinets try painting them an attractive colour. You can also update the hardware on your kitchen cabinets to brighten them up.
Touch up your wood flooring
Let’s hit the ground scrubbing, and I mean scrubbing. You can begin by sanding and re-staining worn or drab looking floors. Spring is the optimal time of year to tackle this job as you’re bound to kick up a large amount of grime and debris in the process. With the warmer weather, you can open the windows, let fresh air in, and spend some time outdoors between sanding and refinishing.
Tackle the drywall beast
Whether you’re transforming your attic into additional living space or updating your basement from storage to an extra bedroom, a drywalling project can be perfect once the weather gets nice. The warm weather allows you to open windows and doors to help speed up the drying process of the drywall compound. While the process of revamping your rooms may be a slow one, the spring season offers prime conditions for tackling the project.
Resurface your driveway
Snow, harsh weather and natural wear and tear can ruin any asphalt driveway. If you’re looking to resurface or redo your driveway, spring’s warmer climate is ideal for this project. Since asphalt and other materials often need moisture and warm weather, it’s best to wait until the time is right to resurface your driveway.
Fresh and bright colours
Another simple way to change the look and feel of your home come spring is through colour. You will find that you can pack a real punch by painting just one wall of your living room, or any room. If you have accent pillows, throws or area rugs, choose a little colour in the design and repaint your wall to match. You can also paint your walls in a neutral colour and bring in light using accessories. For spring, try using fresh and bright shades to lighten up your areas of choice.
