Home improvement projects do a lot to change the appearance and even the atmosphere of our homes. Even smaller, less involved projects can go a long way. Simple things like adding some storage, decluttering, or fresh paint make a home feel fresh and new. Here are just a few projects you can tackle before the end of summer from the team at Indy Renovation.
Build a Shed
By constructing a shed in your backyard, you can increase the value of your house and provide a place to store your lawnmower and other items for the winter. Check with your local authorities before you start this project because building regulations and norms differ from one area to the next. Once you’ve been given the go-ahead, pick a location in your yard with easy access and lay out a firm, level foundation. Shed kits are available at home improvement stores and online, or you can locate building blueprints that can be easily modified with various materials.
Add a New Coat of Paint
Larger paint projects are best done during the summer. It is the perfect time to paint any area of your house that may need it, including the exterior of the home. A little paint can really change the look of a place. The paint can cure correctly and will last longer because of the warmer weather.
Pressure Wash Your Home
Utilize the nicer weather to give your house a thorough cleaning. Dirt and debris that has accumulated on your siding, driveways, decks, patios, and sidewalks can be easily removed with a pressure washer. If you don’t already have one, you can usually rent one at your neighborhood hardware store or home center. When cleaning the exterior of your home, a lower pressure setting should be used on surfaces that could easily be damaged, such as painted siding or wood decks.
Get Rid of Clutter
Take advantage of the remaining warm weather and declutter those frequently overlooked spaces, like the garage, an outdoor shed, or the basement. Most of the time, decluttering is free, and you can actually make some cash by selling the things you no longer need. Additionally, you might use your income for additional house renovations. Getting rid of stuff you don’t use can free up a lot of space in your home and possibly inspire ideas for other changes.
