It is FINALLY that time of the year, homeowners come out of hibernation and start the renovations they have been planning for all winter long. Here we will examine the spring home improvement projects that will bring you the biggest bang for your buck while increasing function and aesthetics.
Let’s start with the kitchen! Most homeowners hear the phrase kitchen remodeling and immediately rule it out because they think it is going to cost and arm and a leg. This doesn’t have to be the case. With the help of a local contractor your kitchen can be transformed from ordinary to extraordinary. You don’t have to completely gut your kitchen to change the way it looks or functions. Simple changes such as adding a touch of color to the cabinets, new hardware, and updated appliances can make a huge difference.
Spring is the perfect time to think about updating the flooring in your home. Hardwood flooring is a popular choice for homeowners because it withstands the test of time. The most common rooms in a home to replace carpet for hardwood include kitchens and dining rooms. Carpeted bathrooms are often undesirable however wood flooring isn’t necessarily a good choice. For bathrooms homeowners often choose ceramic or stone tile because it is durable and can withstand the moisture that is present in bathrooms.
The warmer weather presents a perfect environment for painting the interior and exterior of your home. Spring is neither hot nor cold which makes it the perfect season to add some color to your home with a fresh coat of paint. Paint totally changes the entire look of a room. Changing the color of your homes exterior not only changes the look of your home, it adds to the aesthetics of the entire landscape.
Deck and porch areas are best treated in the spring as well. It is important to do a full inspection of the decking materials. All loose and rotting boards should be replaced. After this has been done it is time to clean the deck thoroughly which then allows stain and water preventative from adhering properly. The same process should be followed when updating painted areas on the deck and porch.
Installing a new deck is also best done during in the spring. Once the ground has thawed and footings can be placed a deck can be constructed. Adding a deck to your home increases your living space. Deck installation is not always simple. This is especially true for raised decks or decks with multiple levels. Hiring a contractor can turn a project that will take you a full month of weekends into a two- or three-day process which is most often the case with home improvement projects.
