Start with these easy home improvement ideas and let your imagination run wild.

With summer decor, clean and refresh your outdoor spaces (porches & decks, patios & balconies).

You should make this the first item on your summer bucket list of home improvements because you can enjoy your outdoor spaces all summer if you finish it. Do a complete cleaning of the entire area. Sweep up all debris and dust from the fall and winter. Think about updating your decor with colorful items. Clean your patio doors, your patio lighting, your furniture, and your outdoor lighting. Throw pillows can add fun colors. An outdoor carpet and a new patio awning or umbrella for shade will make any seating area look more inviting. Upgrade your front porch entrance door with a new DIY summer wreath basket or seasonal flowers.

Add a fire pit or outdoor kitchen to your outdoor space. Install an outdoor fan on your patio or porch to create a cool breeze.

You don’t have a space for outdoor living? It’s time to build one! There are as many ideas as there is space outdoors. From a paver and pebble patio to a shed in the backyard, you can find them all.

Increase curb appeal by adding window boxes.

Add some window boxes to add color and beauty. Consider how the sun will hit your home during summer to decide which summer flowers you should use. There are many options available for both sun and shade. You can apply the “thriller filler spiller” rule to window boxes. Choose a variety of heights and colors.

You can easily water and sow your plants if you have boxes installed on the upper-story windows.

You can change your window boxes to reflect the changing seasons by adding small evergreen shrubs, holiday decorations, or even small evergreen shrubs.

Pressure wash patios, walkways, and siding.

Pressure washing driveways, walkways, siding, and shutters is a very satisfying experience. The result is a new, fresh look for everything with little effort. Renting the equipment is an option, but if you don’t have enough storage space, buying a pressure wash can be a good investment. You can have your water-based fun while the kids play in the sprinkler.

Be careful with your work. When pressure washing siding, spray at a 90-degree angle to prevent moisture from getting behind the siding. Be sure to adjust pressure to different surfaces to avoid damage. Even the upper levels of windows can be cleaned with a pressure washer. Be sure to seal the windows and make sure there are no leaks.

Peel-and-stick wallpaper and paint can be used to create an accent wall in your home.

Create an accent wall if you are looking for home improvement projects you can do in the summer with air conditioning. This DIY project is easy to do but has a decorative impact. You can choose a wall behind a bed or in the bathroom.

Peel-and-stick wallpaper can be applied easily, and you have the option to switch to a neutral color scheme if your plans change or you decide to relocate. Use the same method to cover the back of your bookshelves or the backsplash in your kitchen.

Replace old, drafty windows with new energy-efficient ones.

The summer is all about the fresh air and breezes. It would help if you also were prepared for hurricanes and summer storms and keep out heat and humidity. The windows you choose are essential to your summer protection and enjoyment. Seal them with caulk if you find any drafts or leaks.

Consider all the possibilities that you can use to enhance your summer enjoyment. Do you have a difficult-to-open window behind your sink? Replace it with a style of casement that can be opened and closed by a simple crank. Replace it with a garden-style window, which can double as a place to grow fresh herbs that you will use in your culinary creations.

Replace old windows with vinyl windows that are energy efficient to lower your energy costs. The tilt-out feature makes window cleaning easy. (Get it? (Get it? Leave the installation of the right windows to the professionals this summer. Installers can complete the work quickly so that you don’t end up with a huge hole in your house overnight. Imagine all the seasons and years of enjoyment you will get from your new windows.
