3 Excellent Home Remodeling Projects to Tackle This Summer, Rainy Lake, Minnesota

The arrival of summer can mean many things. For those who like to use the beautiful weather to complete projects around the house, it’s a good time to tackle those home remodeling projects you’ve been talking about. If you are looking for ideas, here are a few renovations that are perfect to do this time of year.

3 Summer Home Remodeling Project Ideas

1. Upgrade Your Kitchen

There really is no better time of the year to make a small or large kitchen remodel than summer. The weather is great, so you can easily make meals outside on the grill until the construction is complete. A few good design ideas you might want to consider include subway-tile backsplashes, a wooden island, wooden ceiling beams, and exposed stove ranges.

2. Remodel Your Bathroom

If you have multiple outdated bathrooms, you can use the summer months to redo one of them. This is a favorite home remodeling project, especially for those looking for a good return value on their dwelling. Some trending renovations include updating to a freestanding single-person tub or walk-in shower, adding a high-tech toilet, installing brass and gold fixtures, and updating to a neutral color palette.  

3. Install a Back Deck

When you have a backyard and like to entertain, a deck can come in handy. Getting yours built early in the season will set you u p for several months of outdoor barbecues and lounging around under the sun. While most people have the same goals for building a custom home deck, they often are surprised to learn that there are many different style options to choose from. Some popular trends include aged wood combined with modern stone and metal accents, minimalist decks with storage spaces, and composite decks that don’t require re-staining or resealing.
