Spring is finally here, its time to get our home looking refreshed and colorful for the outdoor activities that are to come. So get your garden gloves on because it is time to pick out some weeds and help the flowers bloom! Learn more in this RealEstate.com article by Tim Layton.

As winter comes to a close and the snow on the ground begins to melt for the last time, a sense of excitement always builds. The change in weather will bring with it a change in lifestyle as our weekends move outdoors and we remember words like “cookout” and “swimming.”

Spring is a great time for parties, vacations and festivals. It’s also a great time to get out there and fix up that house a little bit! No more excuses! Get off the couch and dig out that toolbelt. Let’s do this! Let’s get prepared for the season!

Spruce Up Outdoor Spaces

Let’s be realistic. Is it really spring without flowers? I think not. Preparing your home for that splash of spring color is fun! Here are a few projects you might want to think about:

Install Window Boxes

I’ve always thought this would be a great project and I still have not done it! Adding some beautiful wooden or composite planter boxes beneath the windows provides a place for a few potted flowers that look great from inside and out! It’s an easy DIY project for any skill level.

Consider These Front Door Color Ideas

No single element of your home can add a fresh splash of color as effectively as the front door! Go with a bright color like red, which is world renowned as a color of welcome and respite. Some believe a red door draws chi energy into the home for the benefit of all who dwell within. But hey, if you’re good on your chi, I think a nice pale blue looks good too. The point is a colorful door is a good move. You’ll be happy!
