Fun Ways to Maintain your Home

July 5, 2024

Summer in Denver is a time for sun, fun, and making sure your home is in tip-top shape. Maintaining your home doesn’t have to be a chore—it can actually be a fun and rewarding experience. Here are five unique home maintenance tips to keep your Denver home looking great and running smoothly this summer.

Turn Your Deck into an Outdoor Oasis

Summer is the perfect time to enjoy the great outdoors, and your deck can be transformed into a relaxing retreat with a few simple steps:

  • Stain and Seal the Deck: Protect your deck from Denver's intense sun and summer storms by giving it a fresh coat of stain and sealant. Choose a vibrant color to add a bit of fun and personality.
  • Add Some Greenery: Create a mini garden on your deck with potted plants and flowers. Choose colorful, hardy plants like geraniums or succulents that can withstand the summer heat.
  • Install Outdoor Lighting: String up some fairy lights or lanterns to create a cozy ambiance for evening gatherings with friends and family.

Create a Fun Backyard Watering System

Keeping your garden green doesn’t have to be boring. Make it a family project to design a fun and efficient watering system:

  • DIY Sprinkler System: Use PVC pipes and create your own unique sprinkler system. Let the kids help design the layout and paint the pipes in bright colors.
  • Watering Schedule Game: Turn watering the garden into a game by setting up a schedule with fun prizes for the family member who waters most consistently.
  • Rainwater Harvesting: Set up a rain barrel system to collect rainwater. Not only is it eco-friendly, but you can also decorate the barrels to add a whimsical touch to your garden. Click here for the rules regarding rain collection in Colorado. 

Turn Home Safety Checks  into a Family Scavenger Hunt

Safety checks don’t have to be tedious. Turn them into a fun scavenger hunt for the whole family:

  • Create a Checklist: List items to check, like testing smoke detectors, checking for fire extinguisher expiration dates, and ensuring all window locks work properly.
  • Set a Timer: Give each family member a checklist and set a timer. The first one to complete the list gets a prize.
  • Make it Educational: Use the opportunity to teach kids about home safety and what to do in case of an emergency, making it both fun and educational.

Organize a Garage Sale and Cleanup Event

Summer is a great time to declutter and clean out the garage. Turn it into a fun event by organizing a community garage sale:

  • Garage Sale Prep: Go through your garage and house to find items you no longer need. Get the whole family involved in pricing items and setting up displays.
  • Host a Cleanup Party: After the sale, have a cleanup party with music, snacks, and maybe even a DIY car wash station for fun.
  • Upcycle and Donate: Get creative with items that don’t sell by upcycling them into new projects or donating them to a local charity.

Maintaining your home in Denver during the summer doesn’t have to be a dull task. With a bit of creativity and a fun approach, you can turn necessary upkeep into enjoyable family projects. Embrace these unique tips to keep your home beautiful, safe, and ready for all the summer adventures to come.
