5 Home Improvements You Can Do in Miami Without Leaving Your Home

April 09, 2020

When you glance around your home in Miami, you may start seeing various projects that should be done. And while many home updates take a bunch of time, money, and many treks to the store, there are multiple home improvements in Miami you can undertake without leaving your home. Here are five ways you can upgrade your living space without leaving your property.

Paint Your Rooms for a Quick, New Look

Is there spare paint stored away from previous home improvement jobs? Put the paint to good use and give your living space a new life. Painting your walls is one of the most inexpensive ways you can update your living space. Plus, it just takes a few hours, paint, and a little bit of supplies you often have lying around such as brushes, rollers, or drop cloths.

Give Your Home’s Furniture A Transformation

If there is furniture around your home that you used to enjoy but is currently past its prime, faded, or just out of style, think about restoring it. Sometimes, all a desk or bureau needs is a fresh coat of paint in a updated color to give it added life and sophistication. And that chair with the awful fabric may be easier to refinish than you think, specifically if you order the fabric online. Switching up your furniture can be a easy, inexpensive project that can bring you joy.

Look for Custom Window Treatments from Home

Putting in brand-new custom window treatments such as plantation shutters, shades, or blinds is a tremendous way to pull together a living area and give it a rejuvenated look. Additionally, some window treatments like Polywood® shutters can yield added energy efficiency.

And you don’t need to leave and go to a store or showroom to receive a design appointment with a professional and look for new window treatments. With programs like Sunburst’s Virtual Design Consultation, you can schedule a virtual meeting in Miami. During the consultation you’ll learn about available window treatments we recommend for you and your home, we’ll help you measure your windows for a custom fit, and then we can help you order your brand-new window treatments.

Consider Creative Ways to Use Things You Already Have

One way to give your living space a whole new look and feel is by just moving around your furniture and adjusting your room to fit your lifestyle. As an example, if you like to read, think about putting together a reading corner that has a comfy sitting area using task lighting, and a place to put your favorite books and a cup of coffee nearby.

You can also get more creative and find opportunities to mix and match accessories found in various rooms in your house. A desk that looks awkward in your family room, might be just what you want in your living room.

Freshen Up Your Landscape

Additionally, home renovations aren’t limited to just indoors. When you invest time to tidy up your home’s yard and patio, you’ll expand your living area. Some simple outdoor tasks include planting a garden or redoing your landscaping by separating your plants. Just spending a few hours for weeding and mulching can help give you an outside oasis where you can rest.
