Synonymous with blue skies, luscious green grass, warmer days and brighter evenings, spring isn’t just about getting outside. Oh no. It’s the perfect time to tackle some home renovations – either to update your property for personal satisfaction or, if you’re selling up, to add value.
Although most renovation jobs carry a hefty price tag, the truth is you need not overspend. Here we offer a couple of ideas to inspire your spring renovation project – without breaking the bank.
4 home renovation ideas for spring:
1. Repaint the walls
If you’ve been dying to inject some colour into your living room or are planning to put your house on the market, fetch your paintbrushes and add a fresh coat of paint to the walls.
Take your time to find the perfect hue and be mindful that – even if you think you have great taste – the next owner may think otherwise. Warm earthy tones, greys, yellows and blues are a safe option and tend not to scare off potential buyers.
2. Bring the outdoors in
A great way to freshen up your home this spring is to let natural light flood into your rooms.
Whilst you could raise the blinds or open the curtains in each room, you might consider replacing your existing windows for new or, better still, adding more windows to brighten things up a little. The best bit about upgrading your windows is that they rejuvenate your interior whilst boosting your property’s curb appeal.
3. Spruce your outdoor space
Always dreamt of having your own outdoor oasis but stuck with a poxy yard? Or maybe space is in abundance but you just don’t know what to do with it?
Fear not, there are loads of simple yet effective ways you can transform your landscape and create an area that’s perfect for relaxing and entertaining. You’d be surprised how much of a difference raking the leaves, trimming the hedges and mowing the lawn can make. And the value of beautiful blooms is not something to be overlooked.
4. Upgrade your decking
With BBQ season just around the corner, we’ll bet that you’re looking forward to spending more time outdoors with your friends and family in the coming months, right?
Yes – the weather in the UK is nothing short of unpredictable and areas in the North West, like St Helens, are prone to harsh conditions. But with a few simple upgrades (e.g. composite decking, canopies and pergolas), you needn’t worry about making the most of your garden come rain or shine.
