5 Spring Projects Around the Home

Posted on March 9th, 2015 by

As the sun peaks out and the snow melts, people find themselves wanting to get their homes in order with a weekend of spring-cleaning. Go beyond the basic closet cleaning with these 5 DIY crafts that will help you take your home from good to great.

1. Prep your deck

Once the calendar turns to March, spring is just around the corner, which means you are going to start thinking about spending more time outside. That makes it the perfect time to prep your deck. The flooring experts at Carrollton CMA Flooring suggest doing a deck-check for any damage, then using a deck cleanser and sealing it two days later.

2. Freshen up a room

Thinking about spring can inspire you to freshen up a room in your home. Consider painting the room, or at least an accent wall, putting up new window treatments, or upholstering a piece of old furniture with a fabric in a trending spring color.

3. Redo a floor

If you’ve been thinking about new flooring, there is no better time than spring to take on a flooring project. Replace that laminate you never liked or the old carpet with something that’s more warm weather-friendly, such as tile or wood or even stone.

4. Do an outdoor project

With spring on the way, it’s the perfect time to do an outdoor project. Some examples include making a sandbox for your kids, installing window planters or making an outdoor food storage shelf for the produce you plan to grow in your garden.

5. Take care of your home’s exterior

Spend a little time on the weekend making much-needed exterior updates and fixes to your home. For example, repairing or replacing your gutters or downspouts, or fixing and replacing window screens that you will use once warm weather hits.
