Ideas for a Summer Home Improvement


There’s a good chance that you have had to put a few of your summer vacation plans on hold this year with the COVID-19 pandemic spreading across the globe and, as a result, you have hopefully been fortunate enough to be left with a little extra money to spend this summer. With nowhere to go, take those additional funds this year and invest it in some home improvements!

Below we have highlighted a few ideas for potential home improvements this summer.

1. Build a deck

Having a deck is a big bonus for those who like spending time outdoors at home during the summer. Decks are great for hosting cookouts, gatherings and simply allowing you to take in the summer outside from the comfort of your own home. If you already have a deck, take some time to gauge whether or not your deck could use some repairs or refinishing.

2. Give a room a fresh coat of paint

If you haven’t updated the look and feel of your home for awhile, a simple new coat of paint can be a welcomed addition. Choosing a lighter color can help reflect the light better and make your room seem much more open. It’s a simple home improvement, but it can make a huge difference in the ambiance and feel of your home!

3. Finish the basement

For many, finishing the basement has been on the “To-do list” for awhile now. This just might be the perfect time to cross that off the list! Finishing your basement can add a whole new dynamic to your home. It gives you extra space for entertainment and significantly improves the value of your home!

4. Add more storage space

In your home, you want to maximize your floor space! So adding shelving units under the stairs, in the basement or in a closet can help create more floor space throughout your home. And who knows? It may even give you enough space to strategize more home improvements ideas!

5. Re-model a bathroom

If you haven’t remodeled your bathroom in years or you start noticing that your bathroom could use a re-design, consider planning out a full bathroom re-model this summer. Consider a new shower design or updated tiling. Anything you can think of to make your bathroom look fresh and up-to-date. This is another great way of adding value to your home!
