Even touching up rough spots and wall damage is a good way to spruce up your home for the spring/summer. The difference is stunning!
3. Add New Glass & Blinds to Your Door
Have you taken a good, hard look at the windows in your doors lately? Chances are, they haven’t had a freshening up in awhile. Instantly upgrade your home’s look with new blinds for your door windows. Add-On Blinds are convenient, and are an easy way to add some privacy to your home!
And why stop there? Switch to enclosed blinds to make a real improvement for your home! Enclosed Blinds eliminate dusting and cleaning, and give you total control over light and privacy in a much more convenient manner.
4. Reduce Interior Clutter
One of the hottest trends right now is reducing clutter, and for good reason. A cluttered space is not only less attractive, it can bog down your life and add stress. Spring cleaning is a tradition that shouldn’t be ignored, and it’s a perfect time to reduce the clutter factor in your home. A few areas to focus on are:
- Closets and drawers
- Kitchen cupboards
- Cables and cords
- Paper clutter
5. Spruce Up Your Deck & Patio
The warm weather will be drawing everyone outdoors, so spring is a great time to spruce up your deck or patio. If your deck has been neglected, give it a good power washing and treat it with some weatherproofing stain. The difference will be dramatic. Add some fresh furniture pieces, cushions, planters filled with fresh spring flowers, and a bright outdoor rug, and you’ll have a fresh, new outdoor space to enjoy with family and friends.
Another idea to immediately upgrade your deck or patio is to add a retractable screen to your sliding glass door. These are an easy project that install in less than a half hour with a cordless drill. Adding a retractable screen truly brings the outdoors in, and allows fresh breezes to flow through the house.
