Spring is on the way and the ideal time to invest in some home renovation projects that will have your home updated, organized, and clean. For an upgraded home, many of the ideas we list below can be accomplished with DIY Tampa home renovation projects if you’re comfortable, and purchases. However, many homeowners would rather turn to a licensed and insured Tampa contractor like Rossi Construction.
Prioritize your home renovations and tackle one project at a time. Continue reading for solid ways you can spring clean your way to an upgraded home:
Buy New Appliances –Not only will new appliances achieve that “new home” vibe, but they alsolast longer and are more efficient. Purchase matching brand refrigerator, oven range, dishwasher, etc. for cohesive interior design. A new washer and dryer set might be all you need to cross off the laundry room project.
Modernize Bathroom Vanities, Sinks, and Toilets – Typically, installation of the previously mentioned bathroom amenities can be completed by the avid DIY person. Yet, skilled contractors are ready to lend a hand no matter how big or small a home renovation is. Look to trusted brands and materials for durability and longevity.
Replace Outdated Flooring -Hardwood, laminate, tile or vinyl remain popular choices in flooring material. Carpet is now typically reserved for children’s bedrooms. This may be a project for your trusted contractor, rather than a DIY. Look for new flooring to upgrade your space and add value to your home.
Give Your Fireplace a Makeover – Even in the warm Tampa Bay area, homeowners appreciate a good fireplace, even if it is a bit outdated. Redbrick or stone fireplace? Consider a new coat of white or black paint or whitewash the brick. These are two ways to make your older home look new.
Add New Coats of Paint – Decide which interior walls need it most and don’t forget a coat of white paint on your wood trim, for a clean look. Do some online research and ask the paint experts which paint colors are both trendy and classic choices. It’s a good idea to select more neutral tones for larger spaces and look to throw pillows and furniture pieces for pops of color – save bright bold paint colors for smaller spaces such as a guest bathroom, office, or library area.
Install New Kitchen Backsplash and Counter Tops –often these go hand in hand. Replacing Formica countertops with granite? Homeowners often opt to extend the granite vertical to form the kitchen’s backsplash. Or select a backsplash to complement the existing kitchen counter if still in good shape or the new material. Either way, you’re cooking up some much-needed TLC for your kitchen.
Refloor or Paint the Existing Bathroom Tile – Sometimes the main thing a bathroom needs to improve the overall design of the room is new flooring. If you did not extend flooring such as hardwood, laminate, or vinyl from your main living space into your bathrooms, tile is a great choice for bathrooms because tile is porous and easy to clean. Trending is hexagon tile and varieties of pattern tile, but ensure you select a design that you’ll enjoy for years to come.
Upgrade the Interior Doors – A simple way to make your home’s interior look like a brand-new home is by upgrading all interior doors. The 6-panel door is standard in most homes, so to make your doors really stand out, go with another variety less seen and perhaps more sophisticated. In addition, take the opportunity to enhance your door entryways for a more modern or farmhouse look.
Stain or Paint Your Patio Deck – What better way to give your outside patio area some attention? Staining or painting your patio deck will make it look brand new. Pair that with new or gently used patio furniture and a few planters, and you’ll for sure be spending more time outdoors enjoying the Florida spring weather.
Spring Clean and Organize – Make a plan to deep clean and organize all the rooms in your home this spring. Tackle one room, one project at a time. A decluttered home will help you feel more relaxed and ready to focus on all the fun summer will bring. Put on your favorite music for some motivation and get to work!
