Spring is the season of new beginnings and a popular time for homeowners to start home improvement projects that will spruce up their outdoor and indoor living spaces. While there are the usual cleaning and organizing tasks, here are seven home improvement ideas that will help make your South Florida home more enjoyable year-round.
Ways to Spruce Up Your Home
1. Add a fire pit to your backyard.
Spend more time in your backyard long after the sun sets with a firepit made from pavers, stone, or concrete. A backyard fire pit can be used practically any time of year and is the perfect place to hang out at the end of the day.
2. Improve kitchen storage with custom cabinetry.
Give your spring cleaning efforts a boost with custom cabinetry. Platinum Sand Construction can configure your kitchen cabinetry and shelving to maximize organization and storage so all of your kitchen items have a place to go.
3. Refresh or change the home’s paint color.
Dirt and grime can accumulate on walls over time, making the paint color look dingy. A fresh paint job can do wonders for the interior or exterior of a home, whether it’s breathing new life into a living space or adding some much-needed curb appeal.
4. Install a walkway in outdoor spaces.
Stepping stones and walkways are a great way to make your outdoor spaces more usable while protecting your grass and feet. Platinum Sand Construction offers pavers design and installation so you can have a beautiful, long-lasting walkway that leads to your garden, pool, fire pit, and more.
5. Update old or damaged countertops.
Replacing countertops is one of the top home improvement projects you can do to make your kitchen or bathroom look and feel brand new. New countertops also add value to your home, making it more appealing to future buyers.
6. Install a kitchen backsplash.
Protect the wall around your stove and/or sink from foods, liquids, and other stains with a kitchen backsplash. Not only is it highly functional, but a backsplash can also serve as a focal point for your kitchen design.
7. Replace carpets with tile or hardwood flooring.
Even when properly maintained, carpets will wear out over time. Additionally, carpet padding is an absorbent material that can lead to mold and mildew, which is particularly problematic in humid climates like South Florida. Instead of getting new carpeting, replace it with tile or hardwood flooring to reduce allergens and bad odors while increasing your home’s aesthetic appeal.
