Spring Home Improvement Project Ideas
Once springtime arrives, many homeowners can’t wait to work on weekend home improvement projects. Not only are they fun, but they’re also an easy way to add value and pizzazz to your property. We’ve rounded up our three top choices of how to improve your home and yard in only two days. Check out our list of top home improvement ideas and DIY home projects for this spring.
Project 1 – The Front Porch
Heading the list of favorite DIY home projects is spiffing up the front porch. Even if it already looks good, changing things up is still fun. To get started take a step back and check out your porch and entryway. What could use some improvement and TLC? If you’d like some inspiration, Pinterest is loaded with ideas and images from proud homeowners.
Here are the top DIY home projects you can do this spring to improve the curb appeal of your porch without spending very much money or time.
Flowers - Nothing brightens up an entrance like beautifully potted flowers in vibrant colors. If you already have planters, just change the flowers and plants out for the season. Otherwise carefully select pots that look good on the steps, and deck. Make sure you have the containers on trivets, so they don’t damage the wood. Before you take a trip to the nursery, take some pictures of your porch and pots so you can find the perfect plants and flowers. Adding flowers is an easy DIY home improvement that can make your porch look great this spring.
Furniture - If you’re super crafty and love to shop garage sales, you can find some real deals on wicker and wood outdoor furniture that just needs a little TLC. After a good cleaning and maybe a little sanding, apply a few coats of high-grade exterior paint. Gloss looks the best and is the easiest to clean.
Area Rug - In the past, rugs were only for the inside. Not anymore, now you can find beautifully woven rugs that are easy to sweep and blow off in stores like Home Depot or Lowes. Take proper measurements and choose something that frames your sitting area as well as complements your furniture and color palette.
Front Door - Have you ever considered changing the color of your door with the seasons? It’s quick and easy. With a little paint, you can transform the entire look of your porch. For spring select bright colors of blue, green, or yellow. A gloss sheen looks the best. You can try different colors to see what looks best from a distance and during different times of the day.
Wall Hanging - Adding an outside wall hanging adds drama and helps celebrates the seasons. Decorate with wreaths, window boxes, or baskets. And if you love going to local crafts fairs, keep your eyes open for handmade wall decor that ties everything together. Go with what compliments the surroundings, for example, in Florida you might pick up something with a beach theme, and in Washington state, you’d most likely find something rustic.
