Top 10 Summer Home Improvement Projects

Here are some of the most popular ways to make your home more comfortable, improve your outdoor spaces, and potentially increase the value of your home.

  1. Enhance your curb appeal
    Improving how your home looks to passersby can do more than improve resale value – it can fill you with pride every time you come home.
  2. Upgrade your windows
    Replacing your windows can make your house significantly more energy efficient, while giving your home a sophisticated new look.
  3. Build an outdoor kitchen
    A grill is great, but an outdoor kitchen lets you take things to an entirely different level. And it just might make your friends a little jealous.
  4. Upgrade your deck or patio
    If you already have an outdoor space, it could be due for a power washing or a new coat of stain. If you’ve always wanted one…now’s the time!
  5. Replace your siding or repaint your home’s exterior
    Making a change to its exterior is a relatively inexpensive way to give your house a whole new look.
  6. Get a pro to redesign your landscaping
    Buying a few plants at the home improvement warehouse is a good start, but to kick it up a notch, you may need the help of a landscaping professional.
  7. Install programmable thermostats
    Programmable thermostats – especially smart ones you can control with your phone – can help you maintain your home at a comfortable temperature while reducing your overall energy costs.
  8. Upgrade your outdoor furniture
    Ditch the folding chairs and invest in a few higher-end outdoor furniture pieces. With proper maintenance, they can last for years – a constant reminder of your smart investment!
  9. Renovate your kitchen
    Summer is traditionally the best time to upgrade your kitchen because you have so many options for eating and preparing your meals outside. So if you’ve been thinking about doing it, now is your time.
  10. Improve your garage
    Install a modular storage system and reclaim your garage from the clutter so that, when winter comes around, you’ll actually be able to pull your car in.
