When planning your home update adventure with your family, sometimes it’s easier to begin with a project simple but meaningful. Picking out window treatments and including the family allows everyone to visualize the room and how little improvements can make a big difference.

When the family agrees on updates like new window treatments, you can get more agreement on your home’s interior design. If there’s little buy-in, try getting a stylish window shade that will add some personality to your kid’s bedroom. Or kick off the project in the gathering room with dependable faux-wood plantation shutters that will stand up to even the most energetic games of tag. In addition to style, new window treatments can also provide economic benefits for your home – such as durability and energy efficiency.

Put in Some Flowers and Shrubs To Your Outdoor Space

With warmer weather comes more time for you and your family and friends to have some fun in the outdoors, perhaps taking advantage of your deck or large and lush yard. Thinking it’s time to add curb appeal? Try adding a raised flower garden to your outdoor space for a easy DIY that comes with a nice return on investment.

Building a raised flower garden can be such a easy and fun project that can add a hint of color to your outdoor living area and encourage all family members to to help with the project. Consider encouraging each family member to select their own flower to plant in the new flower garden.

Are flowers not for you? Consider building a quick wood raised bed for a vegetable garden. It can be installed in small spaces and serves as a charming addition with countless benefits. Furthermore, you get fresh vegetables for everyone to enjoy.

Bring Out The Paint

Adding paint to a room can completely spruce up a space in addition to being a fun family home improvement project in Miami. Start off by picking out the color -- children typically have eclectic ideas of the color they want to see on the walls. Then make sure everyone involved does have a personal paint brush and smock.

If you have some small painters, consider taping off the trim at the bottom of the wall before inviting the little painters to help. By marking up the walls into sections, you can ensure everyone has their individual area to work that’s just the correct height.

If adding paint to a room with your family doesn’t feel like a good thing, start with painting outside by putting a fresh coat of paint on the fence that surrounds your home instead.

Update The Furniture In Your Home

Reupholstering a worn and tattered furniture piece in your living space is an excellent way to renew outdated furniture to a updated style. You can gather your favored fabric, purchase a staple gun, and bring a fresh appeal to an outdated keepsake. And it’s something the whole family can participate in.

Don’t end with chairs. Perhaps that outdated ottoman could use a facelift or your family room loveseat simply does not fit the decor . You could get a great deal of weekend projects from one roll of material! Best of all, if you don't like the end product, it’s simple to choose another pattern and start all over again.
