Mother’s Day is only a few days away, and it can be hard to know what to get the woman (or motherly figure) in your life who has given you everything. Flowers are always nice, so is a stunning piece of jewelry, or perhaps a spa voucher. Yet that is probably what you always get her for Mother’s Day. This year, especially as we continue to spend more time indoors, why not consider a home makeover? There are plenty of home improvement projects you can undertake to make Mother’s Day special this year, and they do not have to take too long, or break the bank, either. While we know most moms would be happy with a card that has some nice words written on it, go one step further this Mother’s Day with some beautiful home improvements. We have outlined five that we think will make Mother’s Day extra special below.
1. Revitalize Your Home with a Fresh Coat of Paint
An easy and quick home improvement project to make Mother’s Day special is refreshing the inside of your home with some new paint. If you do not have the time to do your entire home, simply pick the rooms you all spend the most time as a family like the kitchen, living room and even your master bedroom. You can either hire a professional to do the job for you or try it yourself. It could even be a fun family project to do together, or you can simply surprise Mom with the new paint job when she gets home. Best of all, it will not cost an arm and a leg, and will give the inside of your home a wonderful lift.
2. Add Some Flair to Your Windows with Interior Shutters
Another lovely home improvement project that is sure to impress Moms everywhere is the installation of new window shutters. Window shutters can completely transform a room, not to mention add an extra veil of privacy and shade from the sun. In fact, window shutters are the old “window treatments”, and while many modern windows offer all of the benefits of shutters, if you want to add a touch of creativity and style to your windows, we recommend giving window shutters a try.
3. Install a New Front Door
While front doors of course serve a functional purpose, they can also be one of the most exciting features of a home. Have you ever driven past a house and the first thing you notice is actually the front door? Modern front doors come in a variety of styles and colors and can majorly transform the curb appeal of your home. It is a small home improvement project that can make a large difference and one that Moms will certainly appreciate, especially if it has been a while since your front door was last updated. Why not install a beautiful wooden front door? They do require a bit of extra maintenance over the years, but the aesthetic and appeal of wooden front doors cannot be disputed.
4. Breathe Life Back into Your Deck
As the weather starts to warm up, you might be thinking about having friends round for a backyard BBQ lunch or sunset drinks on the deck. Or perhaps you are having friends and family over for Mother’s Day on May 9. If you are, consider breathing life back into your outside deck for an extra special Mother’s Day. From a power-wash and hand scrub to a new layer of varnish or stain, there are plenty of ways to bring your deck back to life. Adding a few potted plants and small uplighting can also go a long way to giving your deck a fresh appearance.
5. A Small Kitchen Remodel
If you want to really WOW Mom this Mother’s Day, you could consider a small kitchen remodel. Revamping the kitchen could be as simple as adding new fittings and a fresh layer of paint to the cabinets, new faucets, new splashback … the choices are endless. Take stock of what needs to be upgraded in the kitchen and focus on improving that in time for Mother’s Day.
