For many homeowners, the summer is the ideal time to tackle a major home improvement project, especially one that adds value to your home. Part of this is likely due to how many projects involve the yard or landscaping and how we spend more time out there in the summer. But home improvement projects aren’t limited to the outdoors, and there are plenty of jobs to tackle inside this summer as well. If you’re having trouble coming up with a good project for the season, read on for some brainstorming tips and project ideas.
Ideas To Improve Indoor Comfort
When looking for the perfect project, start with ways to improve the comfort of your home. Your home should always be comfortable, but that can be hard, especially in the summer. If your air conditioner or HVAC doesn’t work as well as it could, now is a great time to tackle repairing or replacing it. Even simple maintenance like cleaning the filter can help the AC run better. Other ways to make your home more comfortable in the heat is to install fans or replace old, non-energy-efficient windows.
Ideas to Improve Indoor Aesthetics
In addition to being comfortable, you should enjoy the look of your home. Repainting rooms is one of the best ways to give your home’s interior a brand new look. If you are painting yourself, it is relatively cheap and pretty easy, and there is an excellent return on the investment. If you don’t have the time or ability to repaint the entire room, consider just touching up marks on the walls or painting an accent wall to update a room.
Ideas To Improve Indoor Function
If you’re looking for ways to improve the function of your home, remodeling the kitchen or bathroom can be a great summer project. These repairs can be massive projects or small ones. You could have the entire space professionally refurbished, or you could change out some part of the room. For instance, updating the cabinetry or even just adding new cabinet organizers can help make the rooms more efficient.
Ideas To Improve Outdoor Aesthetics
The outdoors of your home should also be beautiful, and there are lots of ways to update the look. You could repair and clean elements like the gutters or siding. You could pressure wash your fence or patio. Depending on the type of home exterior you have, you could even consider repainting.
Ideas To Improve Outdoor Comfort
Finally, think of ways to be comfortable outside also. This could include projects that eliminate pests, like insects. Mosquitos can quickly ruin a day out in the yard, so think about ways to keep them away. Finally, look for ways to improve the seating and usability of your outdoor spaces, with anything from small updates like adding furniture to significant upgrades like installing fire pits or outdoor kitchens.
