After being cooped up all winter, your family is sure to be ready to get outside and enjoy the nice weather. But if you’re one of the two-thirds of homeowners who are planning on renovating, you may be thinking home renovations could put a damper on your family’s enjoyment of the spring weather. However, this doesn’t have to be the case at all! There are plenty of home remodeling projects your whole family can work on, and enjoy, together. Let’s talk about a few of these projects!
One of the easiest home remodeling projects the whole family can get involved in is painting. Painting is an inexpensive, quick way to give your home a brand new look. Whether the exterior of your home is looking kind of drab or your kids want to re-do their bedrooms, painting is a great spring remodeling project. Get the whole family involved by picking out paint samples together and you can even let the kiddos help paint if they’re old enough.
Another project that can bring the whole family together is building a fire pit. One of the many great things about enjoying the warm weather is sitting around a bonfire with your friends and family. So if you don’t already have a fire pit, now is a great time to get started on one. By digging out an area in your lawn, lining it with cement blocks, and putting sand or stone inside for drainage and fireproofing, you can easily have a fire pit everyone in your family will enjoy.
Along with a new fire pit, you should consider an outdoor kitchen. If your family loves grilling outdoors, then they’ll definitely appreciate an outdoor kitchen. By building an island or other counter space around a grill, your family can easily have a new area to enjoy their favorite burgers and hot dogs.
A bigger project, that can have an equally as big pay off, is adding a sunroom to your home. Sunrooms are a great place to relax, play, and entertain. And if it’s used an average of four times each day, you can see a return on investment of up to 115%! Having a sunroom is a great way to enjoy the nice, warm weather without dealing with external elements, like bugs. And even on rainy days, the whole family can enjoy some fresh air.
If you’re looking for another room to entertain the whole family, you should consider tackling a basement remodel. Just like sunrooms, a basement remodel can be a great investment, with up to a 70% return on investment. Basement remodels are becoming one of the most popular home renovation projects. Some simple planning can help turn a dark, damp, unused area into a completely new room. Whether you’re looking to turn it into a playroom, a second family room, or a home theater, basement remodels are a great spring project.
With the flowers blooming and the sun shining, spring is a great time to bring the whole family together to work on a home project. Any one of these ideas is sure to get your family involved and excited about the new project.
