With all that’s going on in the world, now is the perfect time to spruce up your home. Being cooped up at home can be a drag, but making small changes and minuscule Reno home renovations can make your home your favorite place to be. So, if you’re looking for something to occupy your time, take a look at some of the simple remodeling projects you can do at home this spring.
Resurface Your Driveway
Harsh winter weather such as extreme cold and heavy precipitation can take a toll on your driveway. Commonly, driveways made from dirt, gravel, and even cement and asphalt can break apart or deteriorate causing dips and holes in its surface. Fortunately, spring is here and the warmer, moist weather provides the best results for resurfacing your driveway.
Make Kitchen Improvements
Upgrading your kitchen with paint, new appliances, extra light, and other small renovations can give your kitchen a simple, but beautiful, new look. For smaller kitchens, painting your cabinets or walls a bright white can help open up the room and make it feel bigger. And if your kitchen seems dark and dull, adding under-cabinet or under-shelf lights can really brighten it up and accentuate parts of your kitchen you may not have noticed before. There are also various types of contact paper that you can use to cover up your old countertops, and there is even floor vinyl like this as well. While renovating your kitchen may seem like a daunting project, there are so many simple, cost-effective ways for you to give your space an enhanced look.
Incorporate Fresh Spring Colors in Your Decor
Spring is a time of rebirth and change in nature and it’s common to bring this same energy indoors. Start by incorporating elements of nature in your home. Live plants have become increasingly popular in modern decor and they even help elevate your mood and improve air quality. Another popular interior design trend is to use bright pastel colors such as blue and light green, to add some more subtle, natural elements to their home. These colors can have an improved effect on your mood and make any room feel brighter and lighter.
Add Budget-Friendly Window Treatments
While getting new windows can be costly, window treatments such as blinds and shades or even curtains are a cost-effective window solution that works. They can also make a world of difference for the natural light that enters your home and can help lower energy costs and keep your home cool. Another benefit of adding window treatments is that they add a decorative element to your windows that shows off your personality.
Upgrade Your Flooring
Carpet floors have become an outdated and old-fashioned type of flooring. New flooring trends include hardwood floors and large-scale tiled floors which are much more appealing and easy to clean compared to carpet floors. Some homes already have beautiful hardwood floors hiding under their carpet, and it could just be a matter of pulling up the carpet and treating the wood underneath. And if you have damaged tile flooring, now is a great time to get those pieces fixed, or even start over. As a more cost-effective solution, there is also floor vinyl you can purchase to cover existing flooring which is simple and easy to apply.
Transform Your Outdoor Space
Spring is a time for nature to thrive and blossom. This is the perfect time to do some yard maintenance so you can enjoy the great outdoors from the comfort of your home. Whether you choose to landscape with an array of blooming flowers or want to take a more water-conservative approach with xeriscaping, now is the time to do it. The warm weather and moderate moisture of the spring season provide the best resources for new plants to grow and makes performing yard work much more enjoyable and manageable. Get your lawns looking their best, and add some fun, natural elements to your yard that you can enjoy all season long.
