Springtime Remodeling Tips for NW Indiana Homes

Spring is the perfect time to start thinking about remodeling your home in Michiana. The weather is getting warmer, the days are getting longer, and it’s the perfect time to tackle some of those projects you’ve been putting off! Whether you’re planning a major renovation for improved beauty and functionality, or just looking to refresh your home for a clean & modern aesthetic, here are some springtime remodeling ideas to consider:

Bathroom Remodel

Bathrooms are a very popular room to remodel, as they tend to see a lot of wear and tear over the years. Spring is a great time to refresh your bathroom with new appliances and countertops – the areas that see the heaviest usage. Consider incorporating natural elements like stone, wood, or plants to bring a spa-like feel to your bathroom. Updating the tile or adding a new coat of paint can also give your bathroom a fresh new look and brighten what is traditionally a smaller and less well-lit space.


Kitchen Remodel

While Leatherman is renowned for remodeling of all kinds, we’re definitely proud of our reputation with kitchen design and installation. The kitchen is often the heart of the home, so it’s no surprise that it’s one of the most popular rooms to remodel. In the spring, consider updating your kitchen with new countertops, cabinets, and appliances. This will not only improve the functionality of your space, but it will also increase the value of your home – a huge priority in this market! We collaborate with clients on the best materials and style for their dream kitchen.

Energy-Efficient Upgrades

Spring is a great time to make energy-efficient upgrades to your home. This not only saves you money on your energy bills, but it’s also better for the environment. Consider upgrading your windows to improve the efficiency of your home. We carry Anderson 100 Series windows, which are not only energy efficient but also withstand the extreme fluctuations of temperature and humidity that we experience in northern Indiana / southwest Michigan. We also recommend installing a smart thermostat to help you manage your energy usage.

Get Painting

Adding a fresh coat of paint is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to refresh your home for spring. Consider painting your walls a light, bright color to bring a sense of freshness and openness to your space, as well as harmonize with stronger colors you may have throughout. If you’re feeling bold, consider adding an accent wall in a vibrant color or modern wallpaper to bring some personality to your room. The grey trend is definitely on its way out, with a return to bold colors or warm greige and off-white.

Flooring Upgrades

Spring is a great time to upgrade your flooring. Consider replacing old carpet with hardwood, tile, or vinyl flooring. This can not only improve the appearance of your home, but it can also make it easier to clean and maintain, reduces a source of known allergen-catching material and improves the resale value. If you’re not ready to replace your flooring, consider adding a new area rug to refresh your space.


Storage Solutions

Spring is also a great time to get organized and add storage solutions to your home. Adding new shelves, cabinets, or closets can help you declutter and organize your space. Consider adding built-in shelving to your living room or closet organizers to your bedroom. This can not only improve the functionality of your space, but it can also increase your home’s value.

Whether you’re planning a major renovation or just looking to refresh your space, there are plenty of options to consider. From full kitchen and bathroom remodels to window upgrades and custom storage solutions, Leatherman Supply will work with you to create the space of your dreams with the best quality for your budget.
