When planning your home improvement adventure with your family, oftentimes it’s better to begin with a project small but meaningful. Choosing window treatments and including the family allows everyone to visualize the room and how little additions can make a huge difference.

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

Of course, you’ll want to have your window treatments custom made using professionals like Sunburst Shutters Miami.

Put in Some Greenery To Your Outdoor Patio

With warmer weather brings additional time for you and your family and friends to enjoy the outdoors, perhaps taking advantage of your deck or large and lush yard. Thinking it’s time to enhance your curb appeal? Try adding a raised flower garden to your outdoor space for a easy DIY that comes with a nice payoff.

Installing a flower garden can be such a easy and enjoyable project that can include a hint of color to your outdoor living area and encourage all family members to to help with the project. Think about encouraging each family member to select their own flower to plant in the new flower garden.

Are flowers not for you? Consider creating an easy wood raised bed for a produce garden. It can be installed in small spaces and serves as a beautiful addition with endless benefits. Furthermore, you get fresh produce for everyone to enjoy.

Bring Out The Paint

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

If you have some small painters, consider cutting out the trim around the wall before asking the little painters to help. By chunking up the walls into sections, you can ensure each member has their individual area to work that’s just the correct height.

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

Update The Chairs In Your Home

Reupholstering a worn and tattered furniture piece in your home is a great way to repurpose 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 entire family can participate in.

Why end with chairs? Perhaps that old ottoman could use a facelift or your family room loveseat simply isn’t sparking joy any longer. You could get a great deal of weekend projects from one roll of material! Best of all, if you don't like the end result, it’s simple to choose another pattern and start all over again.
