Spruce Up Your Vacation Home For the Summer

Owning a second home at the Lake of the Ozarks is a great accomplishment and one that you should feel a great sense of pride in. You have a prime place to vacation, unwind, and plenty of activities to enjoy right in your backyard. Get the most out of your lake home experience by enhancing your vacation home at the Lake of the Ozarks. Team Lasson is here to provide you with a few inexpensive home renovation ideas to help you spruce up your lake home for the busy summer months.

Create An Outdoor Living Space

As summer is just around the corner, we will look for any reason to be outside. 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. By doing this, you will be able to create your dream outdoor space!

Indoor & Outdoor Lighting

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. At the Lake of the Ozarks, you can make the most of your waterfront views by keeping the windows and sliding doors free of draperies. Consider highlighting your natural landscape, gardens, and shrubs to create an alluring atmosphere for your home.

Update the Kitchen

Summertime comes with bright colors, and fresh scents. As we tend to be outdoors during the summer months, it can be hard to make your kitchen a place that has a summertime feel. You do not 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 d├ęcor items can go a long way in revitalizing your kitchen area.

Add A Fresh Coat of Paint

Painting may not seem like it can make much of a difference, but adding on a fresh coat of paint or new color to a room can breathe new life into any space. Fresh 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.

These typically inexpensive upgrades can be a great way to update your vacation home at Lake of the Ozarks. Team Lasson enjoys living the lake life and is proud to be able to share the experience with other homeowners.
