Spring is a good time to hire remodelling services in Edmonton to freshen up your property, both inside and out. The weather is relatively mild and not too hot. Having the work done in the spring makes it likely that it will be ready for summer so you can enjoy and show it off to guests during neighbourhood barbecues. If you’re trying to figure out how to refresh your property this spring, here are some ideas to consider.
Repainting is one of the easiest and least expensive remodelling jobs you can do. It is a good idea if you are just looking to make a cosmetic change quickly. In a high-traffic area or a child’s bedroom, you can choose washable paint that is easier to maintain and makes your life a lot easier. A new coat of paint can be the foundation for a new colour scheme in a particular room.
The colours you choose can change the feeling of a room. For example, if you want to make a room feel bigger and more open, you should choose a light colour. By contrast, dark colours make a room feel smaller and cozier. You may be amazed by how just one change can transform the space so that it feels like a completely different room.
During the winter, when the daylight hours are shorter, you may not give much thought to the appearance of your walls. However, in the spring when you start letting more natural light in, you may notice a need for a fresh coat of paint.
When the temperature is colder, the caulking around windows and doors can shrink and crack. This allows air to leak out of your house, hurting its energy efficiency. This can be a problem if you use air conditioning during the summer since the cool air will leak out and then your AC has to work harder to maintain the desired temperature. Since it is cold weather that causes the problem, it makes sense to reseal doors and windows when temperatures start warming up in the spring.
Landscaping can change the feel of the exterior of your property similar to the way that a fresh coat of paint can change the interior. If you want your backyard to feel like more of a secluded retreat, you can plant shrubbery around the perimeter. If you want to draw attention to the front of your home, you can plant some colourful flowers.
Landscaping can also be updated to require less maintenance. For example, if you would like to spend less time mowing during the summer, you could replace some of the grass with bark mulch.
As the weather warms up, your deck is likely to see a lot more traffic than it did during the winter months. Spring is a good time to get it ready for barbecues and patio parties. If the deck is in basically good condition but just needs sprucing up, you can sand and repaint or restain it. If it is weathered and worn, you may need to take the next step to renovate it so it is not only beautiful but completely safe as well.
Improving the appearance of the front of your house shows pride of ownership. If you’re looking to sell your home, it can make a good impression on buyers. For example, new front steps with new railings can make your home look new even if it is not.
