2022 Summer Home Renovation Ideas | Improvement Projects

While we believe every season is remodeling season, there are certain projects that have preferred seasonality over others. Summer is a hot spot for remodeling your home as there are so many projects that can be completed during the hot summer months. Here is our list for the top summer renovation projects to transform your home.

Kitchen Remodel 

A kitchen remodel can be started anytime throughout the year but we always suggest starting it during summer for the sheer convenience of it. During the warm summer months, homeowners have the option to cook and eat outside. Summertime is the ideal time to vacate your kitchen for a couple of weeks without being majorly inconvenienced.

Update your Guest Bathroom/Powder Room 

We suggest updating your bathroom either at the very start or the very end of the summer season. Your guest bathroom is easily one of the most visited rooms in the summer, so it’s a go-to for homeowners to renovate before summer comes into a full swing or after the summer guest rush slows down. 

Some easy guest bathroom upgrade ideas include adding window treatments or changing out the fixtures.

Invest in Window Treatments 

We always suggest investing in window treatments, no matter the season. In winter and fall window treatments can help insulate the house. During Summer and Spring, window treatments can be used to filter light in, keep your house cool, and maintain your privacy. Energy Efficient window treatments are a staple in the design world for their convenience, style, and overall cost-effectiveness.

Upgrade your floors to a Hard Surface 

Summer is the time to upgrade your floors to a hard surface, especially in your main living space. We suggest updating your carpet floors to a hard surface to tile, vinyl, or laminate during summer. Updating your main living space from a hard surface to a hard surface will pay off in the long run especially when it comes to clean-ups. While carpet is warm and cozy for bedrooms, in places where there is high foot volume it can be difficult to keep up with, especially with busy families. Hard surface floors can take you through the messy months of summer all the way to the wet and cold parts of winter looking amazing.

These waterproof options are especially convenient for those who have pools, kids, and pets. Hard surface flooring is easier to maintain and clean up during those hectic summer months.

Outdoor Projects 

While outdoor projects might seem like a no-brainer when it comes to summer renovation, there is actually a science behind it. Homeowners are usually cautious about starting a huge backyard renovation during summer as it means they can’t enjoy their backyard during the warm months. We suggest starting bigger backyard renovation projects such as patio and deck remodels in the spring. 

For summer we suggest refreshing your outdoor space at the beginning of the season with indoor/outdoor area rugs.

We also suggest starting smaller projects that still enable you to enjoy your backyard. Projects like installing an outdoor shower or replacing a few tiles from your pool are easier projects that still give you access to your outdoor amenities for most of the summer.
