 Affordable Summer Home Improvement Projects

  1. Plant trees. Trees not only provide shade for your yard and home, but also privacy. They won’t make a difference right away, but in the future these trees will be large, provide shade for your home, and possibly even help to reduce energy costs. Trees in your yard also increase the privacy of your home from neighbors and cars on the street. Plus, planting can be a great family activity!
  2. Add molding to your walls. Molding is a simple and cost-efficient way to increase the elegance of your home. It comes in a variety of styles, allowing you to choose what best fits the scheme of your room. It’s a subtle addition that will make a significant transformation within your home.
  3. Add a patio. While this may be on the more expensive side, installing a patio now will be worth it in the long run. Patios guarantee a generous ROI when looking to sell, and increase curb appeal. But they’re also great for the warm summer months, or cooler months with a fire pit. They offer more seating and entertaining space without actually putting an addition on the house.
  4. Get organized. Install more storage space in creative places. Install shelving in your closet, or take advantage of wall space in the bathroom. By installing storage spaces, you’ll be able to free up much more space in your home.
  5. Install ceiling fans. With energy costs rising all the time, many people have taken advantage of ceiling fans. They’re a great way to stay cool, without cranking up your air conditioning. Fans are much more energy efficient than air-conditioning, and they come in a variety of styles. They’re not only functional, but they also act as an added accessory or decoration to the room.
