Now that spring is almost here, it’s time to get some of those projects and renovations out of the way. Just because you’re renovating, though, doesn’t mean you have to break the bank doing it. Airport Village Self-Storage has a few budget-friendly spring renovation tips below.


First Things First: Secure Your Items 

Before starting any renovation, the most important thing is to make sure your items are protected. If you’re doing renovations, whether big or small, you don't want to be splattering paint or dropping items onto your valuables.

Consider using an unused room in your home or an attic or basement space to store items while you renovate. If needed, use short-term self-storage to make sure your items stay safe while you are DIY-ing.


Brighten Your Space

Some of the most budget-friendly ways to renovate for spring are also some of the most effective. You’ll be amazed at how much a new lamp, rug, or some throw pillows can freshen up a room that needs it. Consider visiting local thrift stores for an extra budget-friendly lamp or rug.

Find too many great items? Great! Variety is the spice of life! Rotate things in and out throughout the year to make your home feel new all the time. And, with our self-storage in Kelowna, you’ll always have room for your new finds.

New Paint 

Painting takes a bit more work, but it can pay dividends many times over. If your space feels a bit too drab and dull, consider a fresh coat of paint. Try a new color, something that matches the mood you want to set in the room.

Of course, if you’re renting, be sure to have the landlord’s permission. Also, be sure to tape and lay down tarps so your carpet or flooring doesn’t get accidentally painted. And if you need a place to put your furniture while you spruce up the room, our storage in Kelowna is perfect for the job.


Another great and simple renovation is to simply get and hang new artwork around the space you’re freshening up. Again, a local thrift store may have the find of a lifetime, and art can set the tone of any room as well as be a great conversation starter.

Can’t find something you love? Create your own! Take a drawing or painting class and make your own masterpiece to hang on the wall. If you need a place to store all those easels, canvases, and paints, our Kelowna self-storage has room for it all. 


The last budget-friendly spring renovation can be as cheap or expensive as you want it to be: Landscaping.

Not only can you make your home and yard more appealing and welcoming, but it will feel great to get outside after a long winter being cooped up inside. And, if you have all your spring yard tools like lawnmowers, trimmers, edgers, and hedge clippers, our self-storage in Kelowna can keep those tools safe and out of your way until you need them.
