Spring Into Home Improvement: Tips For Freshening Up Your Home For The Season

As the vibrant colors of spring start to bloom, it’s the perfect time to refresh and rejuvenate your home. Everyone has projects they are considering, but which projects do we find to be the most common and the most beneficial to your home? We’ve put together a quick list for your review of not only the best projects to consider, but also the best order of events as you plan ahead.

From exterior touch-ups to interior renovations, there are countless ways to enhance your living space for the season ahead. In this article, we’ll explore some key projects and considerations to ensure your home is ready to embrace the beauty of spring.

1. Address Exterior Maintenance

Before diving into any cosmetic upgrades, it’s crucial to address any underlying maintenance issues, especially on the exterior of your home. If you’re planning to repaint your house this year, take the time to inspect for rotted wood, soft areas, or any other structural concerns. Painting over problems will only lead to bigger issues down the line. By fixing these issues first, you’ll ensure a longer-lasting and more durable finish for your home.

2. Check Windows and Doors

Another essential aspect of spring home preparation is ensuring that your windows and doors are operating correctly. If you have functional issues with windows and doors that could require repairs or replacement, it’s always better to identify in the spring and order early so the products can be ordered and installed prior to the cooler weather returning in the fall and winter. Additionally, if you’re planning exterior painting this year, you’ll want to make sure your doors and windows are in good condition beforehand. Spring is the perfect time to open up your windows and doors and enjoy the fresh air… while checking the operation of everything at the same time!

3. Consider Timing for Interior Projects

While it’s tempting to focus on outdoor projects during the warmer months, don’t overlook the opportunity to tackle interior renovations as well. Instead of waiting until the holidays or the colder months to revamp your kitchen or interior living space, consider working on these projects during the spring and summer. Not only will you be able to enjoy the outdoor weather and maximize the use of your grill while the work is being done, but you’ll also avoid disrupting your living space when you’re most likely to spend more time indoors.

4. Plan Ahead for Outdoor Projects

Conversely, if you’re considering outdoor projects like deck renovations or landscaping, think about timing strategically. By completing these projects in the spring or early summer, you’ll have ample time to enjoy your outdoor space throughout the warmer months. Planning ahead will also minimize disruptions to your outdoor activities, allowing you to make the most of the season. It’s a little counter-intuitive, but sometimes completing these exterior projects in the fall isn’t a bad idea. Now, you really win if you are disciplined enough to plan your outdoor project in the spring or early summer and get on someone’s calendar for the fall. This way you use your outdoor space all summer, complete your project later in the year and have your newly renovated outdoor space ready for next year’s warm season!

5. Focus on Maintenance and Cleaning

Finally, spring is an excellent time to tackle routine maintenance tasks and cleaning chores. Power washing your home’s exterior, repairing deck boards, and tidying up outdoor spaces can help ensure everything is in top shape for the season ahead. Regular maintenance not only enhances the appearance of your home but also helps prolong its longevity.
