It’s been a long winter! But that’s okay — it gives us plenty of reasons to celebrate spring! Spring means longer days, warmer evenings, backyard barbecues, and lots of opportunities to upgrade our Lake Anna custom homes!

Whether you’re looking for a sleek and stylish modern home or something a bit more traditional, there’s no better time to think about new construction homes near Lake Anna. Getting your project started early will let you enjoy the benefits all summer! To inspire your creativity, we’ve collected five of our favorite spring spruce up ideas in this guide. They’re the perfect motivation to help you to ”spring” into action!

Celebrate spring with these five home-building tips:

1. Add a sunny breakfast nook to your kitchen.

After a long winter hibernation, spring feels like a refreshing new day, and what better way to start a new day than with a relaxing breakfast in a cheery breakfast nook? Fill your nook with wall-to-wall windows to let in loads of natural sunlight and you’ll never want to leave! Sacra Custom Homes stands out among the custom home builders in Lake Anna and is ready to help you design and build a one-of-a-kind breakfast nook!

2. Upgrade energy-efficient windows and doors.

Spring is warm, but soon enough winter rolls around again. As you work on your new home project, don’t skimp on the windows and doors. Today’s windows offer many options — from increased energy efficiency to UV protection, plus they come in an array of attractive styles!

Winter weather takes a toll on doors. When planning your project look for the best door you can afford. A beautiful, well-insulated front door adds tons of curb appeal to your home and increases security and energy efficiency. Talk with Sacra Custom homes — one of the most experienced custom home builders in Lake Anna to see what options are available to you.

3. Add a dreamy new patio to your backyard.

If you’re like us, you’re dreaming of the day you can step outside without having to bundle up. And why not step out in style? A backyard patio can be an oasis in warmer weather. And it can offer additional space for summer entertaining! As an alternative to a patio, custom home builders in Lake Anna can design and build a deck that will get you outside in warm weather and adds value to your home. All too often, new construction homes near Lake Anna neglect these important outdoor features. Don’t make the same mistake!

4. Make your flooring fabulous!

One thing is certain: winter is hard on floors! To handle all the ice, snow and sand you’ll drag in during the cold months, ask your builder to install a rugged, long-lasting floor. Upgrading from carpet to wood or tile will increase the value of your home when it’s time to sell. Beautiful (and tough) floors are one of the first things prospective buyers look for!

5. Upgrade your outdated kitchen.

1970 called and it wants its kitchen back! Seriously, the kitchen is the central focal point for many Lake Anna custom homes. Design your kitchen with good light, an open floor plan and lots of storage. Consider upgrading stock cabinets to something more custom to give your kitchen a clean modern look. A professional builder can discuss the options available and find one that’s right for your budget.
