Summer is one of the best times of year to do some work to your home. The weather is nicer, the people you need help from are a lot happier, and the days last longer. If you’re looking to make some improvements to your home this summer but don’t know what to do, here are some ideas.
Redo Your Deck and Fence
Remodeling your deck and/or fence is one of the easiest things you can do this upcoming season. If you’re just not loving the color of your deck or fence anymore, head to your local home improvement store and pick up some stain or paint. Stain works best on a deck, especially if it’s surrounding a pool. Paint or stain is great for fences, but many people choose the stain route over paint. The stain will help protect the wood from rain and the colder-weather elements, making it the perfect choice for either project.
Gut Your Kitchen
You know you’ve been waiting all year to take a sledgehammer to your kitchen cabinets. At least 76% of homeowners change the style of their kitchen during their renovation project. Summer is the perfect time to give your kitchen a face lift as you can leave your windows open and cook outside. The natural air will help your new paint dry faster if that’s a change you’ve chosen to make. If you are hosting a party but are worried about your kitchen remodel, bring your guests outside for a backyard barbecue.
You can even work with flooring companies to transform your kitchen’s floor. If you’re looking at a few different options, you’ll need one of the best flooring companies northern VA has to offer. Fortunately, Colin’s Tile and Stone has the experience you need. You may even be so satisfied with the results that you decide to put that floor in your bathroom, too.
Change Out Your Windows
If your home is old, your home’s roof and windows are most likely old as well. Old windows can create a draft in the cooler months, driving up the cost of your energy bill. To cut some costs, consider replacing your windows altogether. You can make the switch to energy-efficient windows to get the most out of your purchase.
