  1. Give your home a new look with paint

Summer is the perfect time for paint projects! A little paint can go a long way in making your home look good as new. Plus, warm weather helps paint dry properly and last longer. You can order the perfect color at Lowe’s through their online paint store — choose your shade, order online, then and in-store or curbside pickup. 

  1. Upgrade your outdoor space

Odds are, you’ll be spending more time in the yard now that the temperature is rising. Adding new patio furniture can make an outdoor space feel even more welcoming! Up the ambiance with  another one of our favorites: outdoor string lights. They’re perfect for hosting on cool summer nights.

  1. Plant a garden

Gardens not only make your home look even more pleasing, they also add to the property value. To start, we suggest adding some hydrangeas — they’re beautiful and require little maintenance. Don’t know where to start? Your front door is the perfect spot for new flowers.

  1. Get the grill going 

If you’re a family who loves to grill, Lowe’s has the best options for upgrading your outdoor set. From gas to charcoal, smokers, and more, they’ve got you covered. Good grill storage is a game-changer, too. Check out this grill station for inspo. 

  1. Make your own fire pit

It’s the timeless gathering place! For another warm addition to your home, check out some modern hearths from Lowe’s. In addition to gas fire pits, they’ve also got wood-burning options and all kinds of accessories.

  1. Screen-in the porch

The bugs are coming out, there’s no doubt about it. With a screened-in porch you’ll have all the fresh air you need without worrying about mosquitoes and other pesky critters. Not only that — you’ll have a fantastic new place for entertaining guests in the evenings. Check out some of these screened-in porch ideas from Lowe’s.

  1. Start your own compost

There are plenty of reasons to start your own compost — it cuts down on waste that goes into local landfills, creates a better environment for your plants and soil, and reduces the need for chemical fertilizers. While getting started might seem like an intimidating task, it’s surprisingly easy. Learn the basics on the EPA’s website here.  

  1. Clean or replace AC filters

A project that’s less fun — but still critical for home improvement — is cleaning the filters in your HVAC unit. Fortunately, this project doesn’t take much time. Trust us, it’s worth the effort! Filters can cause allergies when they aren’t tended to by spreading dust and mold. They’re affordable too, especially with Lowe’s cash back through Ibotta. Browse the Lowe’s website for options like this one.
