Home Improvements You Can Make for a Happy Valentine’s Day

Home Improvements You Can Make for a Happy Valentine’s DayAs you prepare for Valentine’s Day, one of the most important decisions you’ll make is how you’ll spend the day with your sweetheart. The best gesture is to gift something so special and unique or providing the space and time to create beautiful memories.

Not all gifts need to come in a box wrapped with a bow. There are many home improvement gifts you can give for Valentine’s Day that will benefit both your love and yourself, this Valentine’s Day and for years to come.

Enjoying the Outdoors

Home renovations aren’t just restricted to your home’s interior. The weather might be cold now, but spring will be here before we know it, and these outdoor projects will help you have a wonderful season.

Grow a Rose Garden

Rather than buying a dozen roses that will wilt and eventually thrown away, buy a few rose bushes and plant them in your yard. This will give your significant other roses they can enjoy throughout the year. February is within the perfect time frame to plant rose bushes and there are plenty of nurseries and landscaping contractors who can help you with the process. You can show this achievement to your loved one as a symbol of your affection, as this is a gift that can last with the proper care.

Plant a Tree

Another way to show your long-term affection is to plant a tree. Since trees grow and become stronger over time, it’s a great sentiment symbolizing long-term affection and love. They’re also a good benefit to your landscape if it’s lacking in lushness or shade. There are specific types of trees that are known to symbolize love, including Cherry trees and Wisteria trees.

Swing Away

Hang an outdoor swing in your yard for a fun simple way to get ready for the spring and summer seasons. An outdoor swing or hammock is something you can enjoy together (though you might need to wait for the weather to warm up first!).

Staying Cozy Indoors

If you and your significant other are more fond of relaxing indoors, consider these interior projects.

Increase Storage Space

Expanding a closet is another home improvement gift that benefits both. Additional storage space, whether in the closet or as dressers and cabinets, may help to feel less cluttered and more organized. If you’re looking to expand your storage even further, consider installing custom-built boudoirs for more space. Valentine’s Day should be about spending time with one another, not worrying about organizing, so do this prior so your Valentine’s Day is stress-free.

Build a Fire

If you don’t already have one, consider installing a fireplace. Nothing says cozy like a fireplace at home! Freestanding units can be purchased and running very quickly, while installers can add a permanent one to your home as well. However, make sure that you don’t skimp on the proper safety precautions (and Connecticut Homeowners Insurance) if you’re going to have open flames in your home.

Clean Your Home

If you don’t have the time or the budget for a large-scale renovation, there’s one smaller option: deep-cleaning your entire home. Your spouse will love coming home to a spotless, relaxing space. (If you’re not the best cleaner, feel free to hire a cleaning service.) Then you can focus on a nice dinner or a movie together and not be distracted by chores.
