Craftmark Homes is one of the premier homebuilders in the Washington, D.C. area. We offer a variety of floor plans and prime locations to ensure you immediately feel right at home. If you are a resident or considering becoming one, we’d like to offer a few suggestions for fun weekend projects that will help you add a personal touch to your new home!
Hang new art on the walls.
Many of our communities are located near bustling shopping and art districts. That means there is no shortage of interesting galleries that you can peruse! Take a Saturday to search for something you think will look great in your home. If you find a few pieces that speak to you, bring them home and display them. Nothing ties together an aesthetic like purposeful art, so find some cohesive paintings or prints that you love and get them on the walls.
Get your barbecue game on point.
Many of our floor plan options come with rooftop terraces or backyard patios. This is really important if your idea of a good weekend includes chilling and grilling! Whether you’re a charcoal person, prefer the convenience of gas grills, or feel most comfortable using an electric setup on your deck, you’ll love flipping patties on a warm summer night with family and friends. If you already have a grill, you can still take your barbecue experience to the next level with accessories and upgrades, ranging from an electric smoker to a rotisserie grill. Experiment with inventing your own rubs and sauces and become the neighborhood pit-master!
Reorganize your closets.
You’ll have ample closet space in a Craftmark home, but there are still things you can do to maximize this space with an efficient organization. Complete closet systems are available that incorporate integrated shelving and drawers. This allows for easy organization of items such as tops, bottoms, shoes, and accessories. You can purchase these for a range of different budgets, so if you want the kids to have a more inexpensive version while your closet is absolutely pampered, that’s not a problem.
Don’t you hate it when your dressers cover up electrical outlets? Today you need every open outlet you can find, especially if you have kids. An easy way to remedy the problem is to fit your furniture with some organizational sections and cut a small hole in the back of one of the drawers to allow for a charging cord to pass through. That way, you can efficiently store different types of electronics and keep them charged, out of the way.
Paint or wallpaper the walls.
The color palette you choose for your home can have a lasting impact on your moods and feelings. If you’re looking for something bold and assertive, deep reds are often the go-to choose. Blues, purples and neutral hues make for a more serene, relaxing atmosphere. The choice is yours! Wallpaper is also making a huge comeback, so if there’s a room that you want to stand out, try a classy-looking wallpaper. It’s bound to make a fantastic impression.
We hope those fun weekend projects spice up your beautiful new home. Craftmark Homes has served the Washington, D.C. area for more than 27 years and can make your dream home a reality.
