Getting help from your family with home improvement projects in Charlotte may seem overwhelming, but don’t let potential family drama hinder you. Any home update can become an enjoyable and memorable experience when everyone can work as a team. The key is to select accessible projects where every person in the family can feel like they are part of a purposeful contribution.

From selecting window treatments to building a flower or vegetable garden, here are just a few ideas of some enjoyable family home improvement projects in Charlotte.

Select Window Treatments And Different Home Updates

When beginning your home renovation adventure with the family, many times it’s better to start with a project quick but worthwhile. Selecting the right window treatments together allows everyone to visualize the area and how small renovations can make a big difference.

When the family comes to an agreement on improvements like updated window treatments, you can get more buy-in on your home’s color’s and furnishings. If there’s resistance, try getting a chic window shade that can add some flair to your children’s bedroom. Or start in the gathering room with durable faux-wood plantation shutters that will stand up to even the most energetic games of tag. Besides style, upgraded window treatments will also provide economic benefits for your home – such as durability and energy efficiency.

Of course, you’ll want to get your window treatments custom-built using professionals like Sunburst Shutters Charlotte. At your in-home or virtual consultation, our professionals can help your family select the ideal window treatment for each room. And while your window treatments are being measured and put up, your family can go on to other planned home improvement projects in Charlotte.

Put in Some Plants and Flowers To Your Outdoor Space

With warmer weather comes added time for you and your family and friends to have some fun in the outdoors, possibly taking advantage of your deck or large and lush yard. Wanting to add curb appeal? Try adding a raised flower garden to your outdoor space for a quick DIY with a nice payoff.

Installing a flower garden can be such a simple and entertaining project that can incorporate a hint of color to your outdoor space and encourage all of your family to get their hands dirty. Think about encouraging each family member to pick their own flower to include in the new flower garden.

Are florals not for you? Think about installing a quick wood raised bed for a vegetable garden. This can be installed in small spaces and can serve as a charming addition with endless benefits. Additionally, you get fresh produce for your family to enjoy.

Stand Out With Paint

Adding paint to any room can completely spruce up a space as well as being a fun family home improvement project in Charlotte. Begin by deciding on the color -- kids typically have eclectic ideas of what color they want to see on their walls. Then make sure everyone can have a personal brush and smock.

If you have a few young painters, consider taping off the trim around the wall before inviting the little ones to help. By marking up the walls into sections, you will ensure each member has their individual work area that’s just the correct height.

If updating the paint in a room with your loved ones doesn’t seem like a good idea, opt for painting outside by putting a fresh color of paint on the backyard fence that’s behind your home instead.

Reupholster The Furniture In Your Home

Reupholstering a chair in your living room is a cost-effective way to renew worn furniture to a new style. You can gather your favored texture, get a staple gun, and bring a fresh appeal to an outdated keepsake. And it’s a project the whole family can be involved in.

Why stop at chairs? It could be that worn ottoman is in need of a revitalization or your family room loveseat just isn’t your style. You could get an amazing amount of afternoon projects from one roll of material! And if you don't care for the final product, it’s simple to pick another roll of fabric and start again.
