Easy And Fun Family Home Improvement Projects

July 23, 2020

Including your family in on home improvement projects in Detroit might seem hard, but don’t let the small things hinder you. Any home renovation can become an enjoyable and momentous experience when everyone can work together. The key is to choose accessible home renovations where every person of the family can feel as though they are part of a meaningful contribution.

From selecting window treatments to planting a flower or vegetable garden, here are a couple of ideas of some enjoyable family home improvement projects in Detroit.

Pick Out Window Treatments And Alternative Home Updates

When selecting your home update adventure with the family, oftentimes it’s best to begin with something quick but impactful. Picking out window treatments with the family can help everyone to see the room and how small renovations can make a huge difference.

When the family comes to an agreement on improvements like updated window treatments, you create more buy-in on your home’s decor. If there’s little buy-in, try selecting a beautiful window shade that helps to add some charm to your little one’s bedroom. Or start with the family room with dependable faux-wood plantation shutters that are guaranteed to hold up to some of the most rambunctious games of tag. In addition to style, brand-new window treatments could also provide economic benefits for your home – such as durability and energy efficiency.

Of course, you’ll want to get your window treatments custom made using experts like Sunburst Shutters Detroit. During your in-home or virtual consultation, we can help your family pick out the right window treatment for everyone's room. And at the time that your window treatments are being measured and put in, your family can move on to additional home improvement projects in Detroit.

Put in Some Plants and Flowers To Your Outdoor Space

With warmer weather comes added time for you and your loved ones to enjoy the outdoors, perhaps taking advantage of your home’s deck or spacious yard. Looking to add curb appeal? Try adding a raised flower bed to your space for a easy DIY that comes with a big return on investment.

Installing a flower garden can be such a quick and enjoyable project that can add a hint of color to your outdoor living area and encourage all family members to get their hands dirty. Consider encouraging each family member to select their own flower to plant in the new raised flower garden.

Are flowers not for you? Look at installing an easy wood raised bed for a veggie garden. It can be put anywhere and can serve as an appealing addition with countless benefits. And you get fresh vegetables for everyone to enjoy.

Bring Out The Paint

Introducing paint to any room can absolutely liven up a space as well as being an enjoyable family home improvement project in Detroit. Start by picking out the color -- children normally have strong ideas of the color they want to see on the walls. Then be sure everyone involved can have their own brush and smock.

If you have a couple of little painters, consider prepping the trim on the wall before asking the little painters to help. By marking up the walls into portions, you will ensure every family member has their separate work area that’s just the right height.

If updating the paint in a room with your family doesn’t sound like a good idea, start with painting outside by putting a new color of paint on the fencing that’s behind your home instead.

Update The Seating In Your Home

Renewing a chair in your home is an excellent way to restore worn furniture to a updated style. Just grab your favorite texture, get a staple gun, and bring a new look to an outdated keepsake. And it’s something everyone in the family can participate in.

Why end with chairs? Perhaps that old ottoman is in need of a revitalization or your family room loveseat just isn’t sparking joy any longer. You could get plenty of Saturday afternoon projects from one roll of material! Best of all, if you don't care for the final outcome, it’s easy to select another roll of fabric and try it again.
