Choose Window Treatments And Alternative Home Renovations

When selecting your home renovation journey with your family, oftentimes it’s better to start with a project simple but impactful. Picking out window treatments and including the family allows everyone to see the finished product and how little renovations can make a drastic difference.

When the family comes to an agreement on updates like updated window treatments, you can get more agreement on your home’s color’s and furnishings. If there’s resistance, try getting a chic window shade that will add some personality to your little one’s bedroom. Or start inside the family room with dependable faux-wood plantation shutters that will stand up to some of the most rambunctious games of tag. In addition to style, upgraded window treatments could also provide economic benefits for your home – for example durability and energy efficiency.

Of course, you’ll want to get your window treatments custom-built using window experts like Sunburst Shutters Washington.

And while your window treatments are being measured and put in, your family can get started with additional home improvement projects in Seattle.

Add Some Plants and Flowers To Your Outdoor Living Area

With warmer weather brings more time for you and your family and friends to enjoy the outdoors, possibly taking advantage of your patio or spacious yard. Looking to enhance your curb appeal? Try including a raised flower bed to your outdoor space for a quick DIY that has a impressive return on investment.

Building a raised flower bed can be such a simple and fun project that can include some color to your outdoor living area and encourage everyone in the family to get their hands dirty. You should start by encouraging every family member to select their own flower to include in the new raised flower garden.

Are flowers not for you? Look at building a simple wood raised bed for a produce garden. They can be put in tight areas and can serve as a charming addition with endless benefits. Additionally, you get fresh veggies for everyone to enjoy.

Stand Out With Paint

Introducing paint to any room can completely liven up a space as well as being a fun family home improvement project in Seattle. Start off by deciding on the color -- kids usually have interesting ideas of the color they want to see on the walls. Then make sure all family members does have a personal paint brush and smock.

If you have some small painters, consider cutting out the trim at the bottom of the wall before bringing in the kiddos to help. By marking up the walls into sections, you will ensure each member has their individual workspace that’s just the correct height.

If updating the paint in a room with your loved ones doesn’t feel like your thing, opt for painting outside by putting a new color of paint on the fencing that’s behind your home instead.

Update The Chairs In Your Home

Simply gather your preferred material, buy a staple gun, and bring new life to an outdated piece of furniture. And it’s an activity the whole family can help with.

You don’t have to stop at chairs. It could be that outdated ottoman could use a revitalization or your living room loveseat just isn’t your style.
