While it may feel as though winter is here for the long haul, the warmer months of spring are just around the corner. Spring is also the perfect time of year to get the ball rolling on home projects that will pay off once warm weather is upon us. As you look for ways to refresh and re-imagine your home in the coming months, here are four practical projects to consider.


Paint Your Home

The first thing most people notice about your home from the street is its color palette, which means that a fresh coat of paint can work wonders for the exterior of your home. Whether you’re looking to touch up your existing paint job or you want a completely new one, spring is the ideal time to talk to a professional painter. Exterior painting doesn’t need to be limited to trim, either—consider painting your brickwork, porch, or front door for a dazzling home transformation.

Seal Your Deck (Or Build One)

Is your deck looking a little (or more) dilapidated after these harsh winter months? Before you get out there and enjoy your backyard this summer, have your deck pressure washed and sealed to protect it and keep it looking like new. If you don’t have a deck but would like one, spring is the perfect time to start this project. Your new deck could be ready for its inaugural barbecue in just a few weeks.

Replace Your Doors and Windows

There are so many benefits to replacing your doors and windows, we barely know where to begin. New doors and windows enhance your home’s exterior like icing on a cake. While they’re out there looking good, your replacement doors and windows will also save you energy—and that means they’ll save you money, too. Newer doors and windows are designed to reduce drafts and minimize solar heating so you can enjoy a cool, comfortable home along with considerable energy bill savings.

Add a Fire Feature

You can add a little spark to your backyard experience—literally—with an amazing fire feature that will make you the envy of your neighbors. Fireplaces, fire pits, and fire bowls are all popular features available in a variety of sizes, styles, and price points. Whether you opt for a wood-burning fireplace or a tabletop-mounted gas fire pit, you’ll love the way your new feature truly brings your summer nights to life.
