Nearly 49 percent of us are planning a summer vacation, while one-third are preparing for “stay-cations,” according to Burst Media’s Summer Travel and Vacations 2011 survey. If you’re skipping airports and resorts and opting to stay home, treat yourself to a home or room makeover.
Big or small, a home improvement project can dramatically improve your living space and, potentially, lower your energy bills, too. “Summer stay-cations are a great time to make home improvements to make it more enjoyable and more energy-efficient,” says Kathy Krafka Harkema, spokesperson for Pella Windows and Doors.
