July 23, 2020

Getting help from your family with home improvement projects in Charlotte may seem impossible, but don’t let potential family drama stop you. Any home improvement can become an enjoyable and momentous experience when all ages can work as a team. The trick is to select accessible home improvements where every person in the family can feel as though they are part of a purposeful contribution.

From picking out window treatments to building a flower or vegetable garden, here are a couple of 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 easier to begin with a project quick but worthwhile. Selecting the right window treatments together allows everyone to see the area and how small renovations can make a big difference.

When the family agrees on renovations 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 will add some personality to your children’s bedroom. Or start with the gathering room with durable faux-wood plantation shutters that can stand up to even the most energetic games of tag. Besides style, upgraded window treatments can also provide economic benefits for your home – such as durability and energy efficiency.

Of course, you’ll want to get your window treatments custom made 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 during the time your window treatments are being fitted and installed, your family can go on to other home improvement projects in Charlotte.

Put in Some Plants and Flowers To Your Outdoor Space

With warmer weather brings added time for you and your family and friends to enjoy the outdoors, possibly taking advantage of your deck or large and lush yard. Looking to enhance your curb appeal? Try adding a raised flower garden to your outdoor space for a quick DIY with a nice return on investment.

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 involved. Think about encouraging each family member to select their own flower to include in the new flower garden.

Are flowers not your thing? Think about installing a quick wood raised bed for a produce garden. It can be installed in small spaces and can serve as a beautiful addition with endless benefits. Furthermore, you get fresh vegetables for your family to enjoy.

Bring Out The Paint

Adding paint to a family 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 -- little ones typically have eclectic ideas of what color they want to see on the walls. Then be sure everyone does have their own brush and smock.

If you have a few young painters, think about cutting out the trim around the wall before inviting the kiddos to help. By chunking up the walls into portions, you will ensure each member has their individual workspace 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 Chairs In Your Home

Reupholstering a favorite piece of furniture in your living room is a cost-effective way to repurpose worn furniture to a modern style. You can gather your favored fabric, get a staple gun, and bring new life to an outdated keepsake. And it’s an activity the entire 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 plenty of afternoon projects from one roll of material! And if you don't like the final result, it’s simple to select another roll of fabric and try it again.
