It’s now been a year since the COVID-19 quarantine began and we’ve all been trapped in our homes since then. Day in and day out it’s the same environment, the same scenery—it’s easy to understand why someone might be sick and tired of their own home. With the spring on the way, however, there’s an opportunity to change that. You should take a look at the best spring projects for the home to add onto your own or keep the environment feeling fresh.
Build a Fire Pit
While the evenings are still on the cooler side, a fire pit is a relaxing focal point where you can set up chairs and furniture around what’s essentially an outdoor living room. Fire pits make for a beautiful feature at night and will be fun to gather around with friends and family once the quarantine finally lifts. If you have kids, then they’ll love roasting marshmallows over the fire which encourages them to spend time outside.
Add a Home Studio
Maybe you just need a little escape from your own home. A backyard home studio is perfect for giving yourself some space. You can dedicate these little studios to your passions, hobbies, or even as a home office if you’ve been having to work remotely and struggle to keep work and your personal life separate. In fact, many women have taken advantage of these studios to make “She Sheds” as an answer to the infamous “Man Cave.”
Cultivate the Landscape
One of the best spring projects for the home is getting a jump on your landscaping or gardening. The harsh winter may have left your property looking a bit barren and dead, so spring grants you the opportunity to breathe life back into your yard and make the exterior of your home look much more aesthetically pleasing. Then, when summer rolls around, you’ll be ready to make the most of it by having all the prep work done. There is no finer way to spend time outside. And then, when the work is done, you’ll get a fantastic sense of achievement since your home will look lush and colorful.
