Ideas to Update Your Vacation Home for the Spring & Summer Months at the Lake

 Owning a second home at Lake of the Ozarks in and of itself is a great accomplishment and one that you should feel a great sense of pride in. You have a prime place to vacation, to unwind, and plenty of activities to enjoy right in your backyard. So, why not get the most out of your lake home experience by enhancing your vacation home at Lake of the Ozarks. In today's blog, we're giving a few inexpensive home renovation ideas to help you spruce up your lake home in time for the Spring and Summer months.

Add an Outdoor Living Space

Every lake home should have an outdoor area that is comfortable, stylish, and functional for enjoying the lake life. After all, you'll be spending plenty of time out on the water, and it can really enhance the appeal of your lakefront home. Pouring a small concrete patio, setting up a small pavilion, or using natural landscaping, benches, and stone pathways can add a great deal of eye appeal to your property. If you'd rather not DIY a project like this, you can always count on the contractors at the Lake to come up with a collaborative design and complete the work for you.

Lighting: Indoors & Out

Replacing your old lighting fixtures can really enhance the entire home - inside and out! Adding solar lights to line a pathway leading to the water or other appealing areas around your property can do wonders. Plus, it creates a gorgeous view from the water as well. Consider highlighting your natural landscape, gardens, and shrubs to create an alluring atmosphere for your home. 

A Fresh Coat of Paint

New paint is always a great and typically more inexpensive way to freshen up an area. It can be used to complement or contrast other features of your home to create one-of-a-kind spaces that are unique to your taste. 

Update the Kitchen

You don't have to do a complete overhaul of your kitchen to maximize its appeal in your lake home. Adding small DIY's such as updated cabinet fixtures, paint, and small home decor items can go a long way in revitalizing your kitchen area. 

Update the Flooring 

Traditional flooring can take on extra wear due to the added exposure to water and sun that comes from living on the lake. There are several types of flooring that can help mitigate this: porcelain tile, vinyl, and laminate flooring are all resistant to water and work great for lake homes.
