4 Great Summer Renovations

Written by Posted On Friday, 08 June 2018 14:42

The summer feels like a great time to get work done on your house. Unfortunately, the high heat and the even higher prices charged for some jobs makes it hard to figure out exactly which projects to tackle. If you're looking for a few great jobs to do around the house that will help you to keep out of the heat, you might want to consider one of these four excellent summer renovation projects.

Interior Painting

There are many great reasons to paint the rooms of your house during the summer. The increased sunlight might give you a better idea of how the colors really look. The extra time off of school means that you might be able to put your kids to work. The big reason to do this during the summer, though, is to take advantage of an excuse to be inside. This is a job you can do while you're out of the heat, so why not do it during the summer? Changing out the colors of your home is a great way to give your property a new lease on life or to get it ready to go on the market.

Minor Bathroom Updates

Bathroom remodels are a great idea all year round. If you've got the time and money, you can actually get a fairly nice return on investment by putting some work into your bathroom. Note that you don't have to tear everything out to get a great ROI - making a few minor changes can actually pay off huge dividends. Focus on livening up the look of your tub and replacing some of the fixtures to get more for your money. Depending on what you choose, this remodeling project may only take a few days to complete but might also make a huge difference in how you feel about your bathroom.

Countertops and Cabinets

It's also a great time of the year for those who want to replace their tired old countertops and cabinets with something new. Since all the work can be done inside and it doesn't have to involve too much movement from inside to outside, it's a great way to get some work done while you avoid the heat. If you really want to liven things up, try focusing on making one big change like putting in a custom butcher block countertop rather than trying to change everything at once. You can use the big change as a focal point and design your new kitchen around that choice.

Driveway Repaving

While you might not think about your driveway when you're going through your list of renovations ideas, it's something that can pay off huge dividends if you ever think about selling your home. This small improvement can go a long way and the summer is the perfect time for getting the job done. Beyond all of the aesthetic reasons to make this change, repaving your driveway and other outdoor surfaces during the summer is purely practical - it's easier to get his job done when the weather's hot than when things finally start to cool down. The only thing you'll have to worry about during the summer is rain, so take advantage of the weather to get some repaving done.

Each of these jobs can be customized to your own needs. Go big or make small changes - no matter what you do, you'll look at your home in a whole different light. It doesn't matter if you're trying to spruce things up for yourself or getting ready to sell - these summer jobs will make a huge impact on your home. There are dozens of great things you can do around the house to improve its value, but remember that it's always the quality of the work you do that will end up making the difference in how well any renovation project turns out.
