July 23, 2020

Including your family in on home improvement projects in Phoenix may seem overwhelming, but don’t let that hinder you. Any home renovation can be turned into an enjoyable and memorable experience when everyone can work together on a home improvement project. The trick is to choose accessible projects where every member in the family can feel like they are part of a worthwhile contribution.

From deciding on window treatments to building a flower or vegetable garden, here are a couple of suggestions for memorable family home improvement projects in Phoenix.

Pick Out Window Treatments And Alternative Home Updates

When planning your home update journey with the family, many times it’s best to start with something quick but meaningful. Selecting the right window treatments with the family can help everyone to visualize the finished product and how small renovations can make a huge difference.

When the family can agree on improvements like new window treatments, you can get more agreement on your home’s interior design. If there’s resistance, try finding a stylish window shade that can add some charm to your kid’s bedroom. Or begin inside the play room with strong faux-wood plantation shutters that are guaranteed to hold up to some of the most rambunctious 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 made using window experts like Sunburst Shutters Phoenix. At the time of your in-home or virtual consultation, our professionals can help your family find the right window treatment for every room. And during the time your window treatments are being outfitted and put in, your family can move on to additional home improvement projects in Phoenix.

Put in Some Plants and Flowers To Your Outdoor Living Area

With warmer weather provides more time for you and your family to get some time enjoying the outdoors, and maybe taking advantage of your home’s patio or huge yard. Looking to add curb appeal? Try including a flower garden to your outdoor space for a simple DIY with a big payoff.

Adding a raised flower bed can be such a quick and fun project that will incorporate a hint of color to your space and encourage everyone in the family to get involved. You should start by encouraging every single family member to pick their own flower to add to the new raised flower garden.

Are flowers not your thing? Look at installing an easy wood raised bed for a produce garden. They can be put anywhere and serves as a beautiful addition with endless benefits. And you get fresh produce for everyone to enjoy.

Stand Out With Paint

Adding paint to a room can absolutely liven up a space in addition to being an enjoyable family home improvement project in Phoenix. Begin by picking out the color -- children typically have strong ideas of the color they want to see on the home’s walls. Then be sure everyone involved does have an individual paint brush and smock.

If you have a couple of small painters, think about taping off the trim around the wall before inviting the kiddos to help. By taping up the walls into sections, you will ensure each member has their own area to work that’s just the correct height.

If painting a room with the family doesn’t sound like a good thing, try painting outside by putting a new color of paint on the backyard fence around your home instead.

Reupholster The Chairs In Your Home

Updating a favorite piece of furniture in your home is a cost-effective way to restore worn furniture to a updated style. You can gather your preferred material, purchase a staple gun, and bring new life to an outdated piece of furniture. And it’s something the entire family can participate in.

There’s no need to end with chairs. It could be that outdated ottoman is in need of an update or your family room loveseat simply isn’t sparking joy any longer. You could get plenty of afternoon projects from one roll of material! The best thing about this type of project is if you don't care for the end outcome, it’s easy to select another roll of fabric and try it again.
