3 Summer-Friendly Makeovers for Your Home

Posted July 14, 2022

Are you bored with the look of your house? Now that it’s summer - which is arguably the best season! - you might be wanting to refresh your home. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways that you can get your home summer ready. The best part about upgrading your space is that you don’t have to hesitate when it’s your turn to host a summer pool party, neighborhood gathering or cookout. Your home will be ready to entertain!

Here are three summer-friendly makeovers to consider this season!

1. Remove Your Carpet and Install Luxury Vinyl Flooring

Your home may have come with builder-grade carpet, but if it’s worn and outdated, now is the time to upgrade. You can create the same warmth and comfort with luxury vinyl flooring - and you can expect many other benefits, too!

Luxury vinyl flooring is a popular, affordable flooring option that mimics the look of hardwood, tile or stone. While you can install it anywhere in the home, it’s especially beneficial for kitchens and bathrooms because it’s durable, easy to maintain and water-resistant.

And the best part is - you don’t have to worry about people wearing their shoes in your house or spilling drinks on your floor. Luxury vinyl flooring requires little maintenance - even in high traffic areas. When everyone leaves after your gathering, you can simply sweep, vacuum or mop the floor to restore its original luster.

2. Fix Your Deck with New Decking and a Railing

Another summer-friendly makeover to consider is a new deck. Summer get-togethers are meant to be hosted outdoors, but this is hard to do if you don’t have a patio or deck that’s in good condition. Summer is the perfect time to spruce up your wood decking and railing so that you can host summer gatherings and enjoy relaxing nights in your backyard.

Woodhaven is an outdoor expert for decking and railing. Natural wood decking is a great choice when you’re looking for something that will blend in with the rest of your home. Another option you have is composite and PVC decking. This material is strong, dependable and resistant to rotting and deterioration.

3. Crown Molding Installation

Installing crown molding in your home is an effective way to update and redesign your space. You’d be surprised by how much attention crown molding gets, as it’s one of the first things that pops out once someone walks into your home. Plus, crown molding hides imperfections, enhances the visual appeal of your home and increases property value.

Aside from crown molding that goes around the perimeter of your home, you may also consider wainscot paneling, chair rails and mantel trims. These features will enhance the architectural elegance of your home, making your guests feel like they’re walking into splendor.
