July 23, 2020

Including your family in on home improvement projects in Orlando may seem overwhelming, but don’t let potential family drama stop you. Any home improvement can become a fun and unforgettable experience when everyone can work together on a home improvement project. The secret is to choose accessible home improvements where every member in the family can feel as though they are part of a worthwhile contribution.

From selecting window treatments to installing a flower or vegetable garden, here are just a few suggestions for enjoyable family home improvement projects in Orlando.

Pick Out Window Treatments And Alternative Home Improvements

When planning your home update journey with your family, oftentimes it’s easier to begin with something simple but impactful. Choosing window treatments with the family can help everyone to visualize the area and how simple additions can make a huge difference.

When the family can agree on renovations like new window treatments, you create more agreement on your home’s interior design. If there’s little buy-in, try getting a stylish window shade that helps to add some personality to your little one’s bedroom. Or start inside the family room with dependable faux-wood plantation shutters that are guaranteed to stand up to even the most rambunctious games of tag. In addition to style, upgraded window treatments could 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 Orlando. At the time of your in-home or virtual consultation, we can help you and your family find the perfect window treatment for every room. And during the time your window treatments are being fitted and installed, your family can go on to other home improvement projects in Orlando.

Add Some Flowers and Shrubs To Your Outdoor Patio

With warmer weather comes added time for you and your family to enjoy the outdoors, and maybe taking advantage of your home’s patio or large and lush yard. Wanting to add curb appeal? Try including a raised flower bed to your outdoor space for a quick DIY that has a impressive payoff.

Adding a raised flower garden can be such a quick and entertaining project that can add a pop of color to your outdoor living area and encourage all family members to get involved. Consider encouraging each family member to pick their own flower to plant in the new flower garden.

Are flowers not for you? Consider creating a quick wood raised bed for a vegetable garden. They can be installed in small spaces and serves as a beautiful addition with many benefits. And you get fresh veggies for everyone to enjoy.

Bring Out The Paint

Adding paint to a family room can help spruce up a space as well as being a fun family home improvement project in Orlando. Start by picking out the color -- children normally have strong ideas of what color they want to see on the home’s walls. Then make sure everyone will have an individual brush and smock.

If you have a couple of little painters, think about prepping the trim on the wall before inviting the little painters to help. By taping up the walls into small areas, you can ensure each member has their individual area to work that’s just the perfect height.

If painting a room with your loved ones doesn’t feel like a good thing, try painting outside by putting a fresh coat of paint on the fencing that surrounds your home instead.

Reupholster The Furniture In Your Home

Updating a chair in your living room is a great way to renew old furniture to a updated style. Just get your preferred fabric, get a staple gun, and bring a fresh appeal to an outdated piece of furniture. And it’s something the whole family can help with.

Why stop at chairs? Maybe that worn ottoman needs a revitalization or your living room loveseat just isn’t sparking joy any longer. You could get a great deal of weekend projects from one roll of fabric! Best of all, if you don't care for the final product, it’s easy to pick another pattern and try it again.
