Summer Home Remodeling Ideas

Summer is the perfect time to start on home remodeling projects. The consistently warm weather often means spending time outside working on touch-ups and freshening up your home. It’s also the best time of year to cross off a couple remodels you’ve been holding off on. Here’s a list we compiled of some projects to tackle this season.

Kitchen Remodel

This project is just as important as your outside projects! Your kitchen is an oasis that invites you in to grab a bite and cool off from the summer heat. Kitchen islands are a practical way to create casual seating and additional storage space. For everyday or for entertaining, islands make for a wonderful prep and serving area. Cambria Quartz will make your island top and countertops maintenance free, allowing more time for summer fun. K&D Countertops offers several designs to choose from. Our showrooms showcase slabs and offer sample sizes to take back home. Come in today and let’s get started on your kitchen remodel!


A sunroom is a wonderful addition to any home. There are a lot of different ways you can remodel this space to make it cozy and inviting. A simple, fresh coat of paint can brighten up the walls and bring the room to life. Natural plants add a pop of color and bring the outdoors in. Accessories like pillows, candles, baskets, and colorful artwork help bring the whole room together. Natural accents of wood, bamboo, and wicker paired with a clear glass table add warmth without being too heavy. Casual, but comfy, furniture helps create a relaxing and calming environment in your new sunroom.

Build A Deck

Adding a deck to your home is a fantastic idea. Nothing is better than having dinner outside on a nice summer evening – and it will also increase the value of your home! A deck is the perfect gathering spot for your family to chat, eat and hang out. A one level deck is nice but consider the opportunity to create a multi-level deck. Any deck can be a stunning new addition to your home. Add seating, a table, and lighting to create the perfect outdoor room. A ceiling fan or two can keep you cool during those hot summer days. Sit outside, read a book, and enjoy the nature around you on your new deck.


Your lawn is just as important to remodel as your home – they go hand in hand. Take some time this summer to revamp your outside spaces. Adding a few flowers and plants can really brighten up your yard and turn it into something special. Use stepping stones and a pond to create a peaceful and relaxing zen garden. Add an element of fun with a swing set or enjoy the soothing rhythm of a porch swing. The outdoor area shown in this photo is great for thinking, unwinding, and taking in the view of your beautiful backyard.

Those are just a few remodeling ideas! Try to utilize a few of these ideas in your own space. Even small changes can make a huge difference in your day-to-day life. Projects to spruce up the inside and outside of your home will be enjoyed for years to come as well as add value. If your remodel includes countertops, the K&D Countertops team is ready to work with you. Have fun remodeling!
