As summer breezes in, so does the perfect opportunity to revamp your living spaces.

For moms juggling household duties and family life, remodeling might seem like an overwhelming task. However, with the right approach and a bit of planning, it can be an exciting project that revitalizes your home and enhances functionality.

Whether it’s sprucing up the kitchen for those summer gatherings or creating a tranquil oasis in the backyard, there are many ways to improve your home.


June and July are perfect for bringing the outdoors in and vice versa. Consider opening up your living space by installing bi-fold or sliding doors that seamlessly connect your indoor and outdoor areas. This not only enhances natural light but also creates a refreshing flow throughout your home.


Transform your primary bedroom into a serene sanctuary where you can unwind after a long day. Update your bedding with breathable fabrics in light, summery hues and invest in blackout curtains to ensure a restful night’s sleep. Consider adding houseplants that improve indoor air quality.


Make the most of the warm weather by transforming your backyard into an outdoor oasis. Install a deck or patio where you can host summer barbeques and alfresco dinners with friends and family. Incorporate lush greenery, cozy seating and ambient lighting to create a welcoming atmosphere.


For moms with young children, creating functional yet stylish family-friendly spaces is key. Consider incorporating builtin storage solutions to keep clutter at bay and opting for durable, stain-resistant fabrics that can withstand spills and messes (like all those popsicles). Create designated play areas where kids can unleash their creativity while still being within sight.


Remodeling doesn’t have to break the bank. Look for budget-friendly updates that make a big impact, such as painting walls in fresh, vibrant colors or swapping outdated fixtures and hardware for modern alternatives. Consider tackling smaller DIY projects like updating cabinet hardware or installing new light fixtures to give your home a fresh new look.


While DIY projects can be fun, sometimes it’s best to leave certain tasks to the professionals. Whether it’s plumbing, electrical work or structural changes, hiring a qualified contractor ensures that the job is done safely and efficiently, giving you peace of mind to enjoy the fruits of your effort and investment. Always make sure your contractors are licensed, bonded and insured.

Summer remodeling offers the opportunity to create a home that not only reflects your personal style but also meets the needs of families. Get the kids involved in the choices — doing so shows them the

value of exploring creativity and making our homes into spaces that promote wellbeing, function and beauty.
