Summer is right around the corner! That being said, now would be a great time to get started with your beach house renovations. Here are some ideas:


  1. Add a deck or a porch – This can provide a wonderful outdoor space for enjoying the beach views, having a fire with smores, and just relaxing with family or friends, among many other things.
  1. Update the kitchen – As we all know, the kitchen is the heart of the home and updates can make a big difference. Something as small as painting the wall or something as big as new countertops are great considerations.
  1. Install new flooring – Beach houses can take a beating from the elements, especially from sand being brought inside. Consider putting in durable and easy-to-clean flooring like tile or hardwood.
  1. Add more windows – Beach houses typically have great views, so more windows or bigger windows will bring in a ton of natural light.
  1. Create a beach-inspired theme – Incorporating beach-inspired décor will help to create a relaxing and inviting atmosphere; utilize nautical accents, beach-themed artwork, and coastal colors.
  1. Update the bathrooms – Updating the bathroom, at your beach house or your everyday home, adds value and functionality. New fixtures, lighting, and even storage spaces will be great additions!
  1. Add outdoor showers – Outdoor showers are a huge selling point in a beach house! It’s a great way to rinse off the sand and saltwater before entering your home, and also adds a fun touch to your house.
  1. Upgrade the landscaping – Beach houses typically have big, beautiful outdoor spaces, so upgrading the landscaping will enhance the look and feel of your home. Adding some beachy plants or a fire pit area will be a big hit.

These are some really great ideas to enhance and update your beach house. South Jersey would be beyond happy to help create your beach house dreams!
