The month of April brings a lot of lovely things—warmer temperatures, beautiful flowers, greenery–and maybe some tax return money. Typically, the sum isn’t enough to tackle a major home renovation, but there are plenty of improvements you can put the funds towards that will boost the appeal and value of your home. If you have been putting off some of these projects, now is the perfect time to reconsider.

  1. Organizational Solutions

This goes hand in hand with your spring cleaning. But before you go spending your refund on bins, boxes, and shelves, make sure you purge first. By clearing and decluttering your closet, bedroom, living space, and pantry, you will have less to store. Then, once you know what you are keeping, you can shop for the right organizational products to keep your home clean and organized. Simplifying in this way can make all the difference in how you view and feel about your home.

  1. Painting and Caulking

Sometimes you don’t need a full update to make a change in your home. Over time, walls, baseboards, and window sills can get scuffed and grubby. Give them a good cleaning and you will see exactly where caulking and touchups are needed. If you are looking to paint an accent wall or make a statement with the trim, your tax return can go a long way towards purchasing the paint and tools you will need.

  1. Boosting Curb Appeal

Your exterior and entryway has a huge impact on how guests and passersby feel about your home. New house numbers, exterior lights, shrubs, and a new mailbox could be the perfect change. For even more impact, paint your front door and the trim around your windows. You can choose a bold dark color to compliment the rest of your exterior, or keep it simple, light, and clean. Either way, these improvements will give you a bigger payoff.

  1. New Entry or Patio Doors

Sometimes paint, caulking, and new weather-stripping just doesn’t cut it. But replacing the doors in your home will go a long way toward improving your home. Not only will this renew the aesthetic, but it can improve the functionality and efficiency as well. The money from your tax return could be just enough to cover these improvements from top to bottom.
