Summer is here, and now is the best time of the year to make your outdoor space beautiful and enjoy the weather while it lasts. There are tons of changes ranging from small to large that you can make to improve your home. The nice weather also makes it easy to complete projects, because you don’t have to compete or schedule around the weather. It’s genuinely one of the best times of the year to get projects around the house done. Whether you want to prepare your home for a sale or make your space more comfortable and livable, Summer is a great time to mark projects off of your list.
Build a Deck
If you plan to make your outdoor space more comfortable and functional, it starts with a deck. It’s the perfect way to expand your living space and even cooking space outdoors. You can entertain, grill, and host cookouts with a deck. There are tons of design options out there, ranging from material, type of steps, etc. A deck can be built in so many different ways, so whatever type of backyard you’ve got, you can find an option that works for you. Decks are also raised, so they allow you to take advantage of your area views and stay off the grass, away from pesky bugs.
Let Your Light in with New Windows
It’s no secret that replacing your windows is one of the best ways to add natural light into your home. But have you considered different window style options from the standard double or single hung options? Sliding, picture, and awning windows can add much more light into your home without sacrificing any energy efficiency benefits. Windows provide huge aesthetic benefits too, they can make your whole home look more updated, and illumination always makes a home more welcoming and comfortable. Windows are vital to a home, but not all are created equal.
Remodel Your Bathroom
The bathrooms in any home are essential. There is truly never a bad time to renovate or remodel your bathroom. Projects range from small updates like new faucets and showerheads to a complete remodel of the bath, flooring, and vanity. In addition to their obvious functional value, bathrooms also provide a great return on investment if you do ever sell your home. If you’ve got a pool, consider adding a small shower in an area easily accessible from the pool to help keep the rest of your home clean.
All of these projects are great ways to improve the value of your home but also make it much more enjoyable to live in, especially in the warm weather months. Contact our team at Bennett Contracting today if you’re interested in improving your home.
