As the winter snow melts away and the long-awaited spring season officially begins, it’s a fantastic time to add a fresh coat of paint to various areas of the home. Since spring is known as a time for new beginnings, you have the chance to embrace it as a clean slate and transform your home into one you’ll be proud of all year long.
Whether you’re a weekend DIYer or an experienced painter, here’s a list of five spring paint projects to spruce up your property.
Exterior. While painting the exterior of your home is one of the biggest home renovation projects on the list, it’s best to tackle it in the spring. With the mild temperatures and relatively predictable weather patterns, this season is the most optimal time to paint vinyl siding, wood or the entire surface of your home’s exterior. While you might need a few extra hands or a professional opinion before getting started, you’ll love the look of the finished product.
Garage. Since garage doors face full exposure to various elements throughout the year, a great way to update the look of your home is to give your garage a fresh coat of paint. Whether you choose a neutral tone or you brighten it up with a pop of color, it’s best to use a thick, mildew-resistant exterior paint for the best long-lasting results.
Doors. The front door is the first impression your home makes with neighbors, guests and potential buyers. If you want a quick way to increase your curb appeal, painting it with a good quality exterior product will make you fall in love with the look of your home in just a few hours. While most people opt for a neutral shade on doors, it may be a perfect opportunity to think outside the box and go for a color like orange, red, blue or green.
Flower Pots. One of the best things about spring is having the opportunity to liven up your lawn with gardens and fresh flowers. If you’re looking for a great way to spruce up your flower pots while getting the kids involved, painting them is the perfect weekend project. Whether you let them create special designs or keep the look neutral and clean, you’ll love the way freshly-painted flower pots add style, personality and eclectic charm to your home’s appeal.
Interior. If there was ever a perfect season to give your walls a fresh coat of paint, it’s definitely springtime. Whether you’re looking to brighten up the kitchen, living room, bathroom or bedroom, spending a few hours with a painting project can take years off the look of a room and has the power to transform it into something refreshing and vibrant. With the warmer weather, it’s also possible to pop open the windows and enjoy the fresh springtime air!
