Focus on High-Traffic Areas
Choosing where to focus your efforts for home improvement can be difficult, especially if you feel as though you have a lot that needs to be done. If this is the case, take a look at the following areas of the home that see higher traffic over the summertime, and consider upgrading these at the start of the season:
- Patio Doors: In the summertime, your children and their friends are probably running in and out of the house and the backyard throughout the day. If you love entertaining, you’re also likely to have plenty of guests using your patio doors during parties held in the backyard, by the pool, or on a deck if you have one.
The summertime is a great time for beautiful, new patio door replacement. Take a look at your patio doors and consider replacing them if they’re old, worn-out, or difficult to clean. You should definitely replace them if they’re hard to open and close, or if they’re worn out, cracked, and dangerous to the safety of your household and guests.
- Durable Cabinet Refacing: The kitchen is always the most social room in the home—and it’s likely that your summertime guests will see a lot of it during the season. One of the best and most affordable ways to freshen up and even transform the entire kitchen space with a brand-new look is with cabinet refacing.
Cabinet refacing involves reinforcing the existing cabinet materials with an extra sheet of plywood, wood, and other durable materials for a perfect renovation without the mess or expense of a full replacement. You’ll also be able to upgrade the handles, hinges, and other accessories with this solution.
- Bath Renovation: The bathroom is one of the highest traffic areas of the home—especially over the summertime. With pool parties, overnight guests, and the kids home from school, the bathroom can be attacked by frequent and heavy use throughout the day and night.
If your bathroom has seen better days, consider a one-day bathroom makeover designed to focus on fixing problem areas. Consider shower replacement, tub replacement, wall surround installation, flooring replacement, new paint, and other renovation options for seriously dramatic results. Best of all, one-day bathroom remodels are quick and easy, and can be completed without the expense or hassle of a time-consuming, full bathroom renovation.
- Power Washing: If most of your entertaining will be done outdoors, now’s a great time to power wash the deck, pool area, patio, driveways, and the front porch of your home for guests. Power washing offers incredible results to brighten up your home and property, clearing out the dirt, grime, dead leaves, and other build-up after the fall, winter, and spring seasons.
