Now that we’ve officially entered the summer season, you might be itching to put some work into your home. Refresh your home and put your weekends to work by tackling some of these 2-day home improvement projects!
1. Try out a fresh coat
Only a few things can make your house look instantly updated, and a fresh coat of paint can definitely do just that. Try a timeless neutral in the living room or refresh your bathroom with a spa-like hue. But if you’re planning on selling soon, keep your color choices on the neutral end of the spectrum so buyers can see themselves in your space.
2. Spiff up your kitchen
Make your kitchen feel new by replacing your cabinet hardware with some modern fixtures. Have some extra time? Repaint your bottom cabinet doors or island a subdued navy blue for a fresh, on-trend look. Open shelving is all the rage right now, so if you like the look, take off a couple of your upper cabinet doors for more space to show off your style.
3. Make some room
Make your home more relaxing by getting rid of the clutter. Choose one area to work on at first—closets, cabinets, or shelves are a great place to start. Then channel your inner Marie Kondo and get rid of anything that no longer sparks joy. Then spend some time organizing the space so it’s really usable for you and your family. If you spend a few weekends focused on decluttering and organizing, your home will definitely feel refreshed.
4. Boost your curb appeal
Summer is the perfect time to give your outdoor space a little love. Spend some time cleaning up your front yard by weeding and getting rid of yard debris. Then plant some flowers for a seasonal pop of color! I love petunias, pansies, or dahlias for some low maintenance blooms.
5. Create a container garden
If you have some space in the backyard or on your patio, try a container pizza garden garden!
Pick up a couple large terracotta pots and high-quality soil to plant cherry tomatoes, basil, and oregano. You’ll be able to make your own fresh marinara sauce, which is sure to be delish.
And your container pizza garden will perk up your space!
These projects are short and sweet, but they can pack a major refreshing punch. And if you’re looking to move soon, they can definitely help the look of your home, which can lead to more interested buyers. Wondering what projects would be best for your house? Give me a call!
