Summer is the best time to get involved in home renovation and DIY projects. Not only will it improve your living conditions, but the actual experience would likely leave you feeling fulfilled and good about yourself. Not to mention, if you are doing it together as a family, it is a perfect bonding opportunity. Here are some examples of great home improvement projects to take on this summer.
Shed Organisation and Extension
Garden sheds are often neglected during the colder periods of the year. It is not uncommon for them to become a dumping ground for objects you don’t need or want inside the house. At some point, though, this has to change.
Since the weather is nicer, perhaps you spend more time in the garden, have barbecues or mini parties more often. You don’t want a shed that looks like a mess. Take the time to organise the space. A great idea is to add some more shelves on the walls. It should be a fairly straightforward process. Alternatively, you can have hanging organisers. Once the shed looks neater, it will be much easier to find whatever you are looking for in there.
If you are truly out of space, think about an extension. You can get ready-made sheds from B&Q, Argos or Ikea, or you can simply DIY.
As soon as it stops raining and the sun starts shining there’s an invasion of flies, mosquitos and all sorts of bugs. A good home improvement project to tackle now would be installing window or door nets to bug-proof your house. It will help not only during the summer, but in early autumn as well, when spiders begin their mating period and suddenly increase in numbers.
Garden Home Office
It looks like working from home will stay with us in some form for the foreseeable future. Why not use the summer months for a really cool project – building your very own garden home office? Just like sheds, you can get ready-made constructions. They are easy to install in your outdoor space and of a pretty good size. Don’t forget to properly insulate the office as you may be feeling chilly once colder weather sets in.
Who doesn’t like fresh looking walls at home. There’s something about it that makes you feel cosy and welcome. Maybe you want to change the colours to more uplifting options or simply touch up what you already have. It could be necessary if you have little artists at home, who like using the walls as their canvas.
After re-decorating works it is important to book professional cleaning. The after-builders service is perfect for this kind of scenario. It is similar to deep cleaning, but even more thorough.
Creating More Spac
Less clutter, more space to enjoy, breathe easier and sleep better. Make it a priority this summer to get rid of everything that doesn’t truly belong in your living room or bedrooms. If you live in a small house or flat, you can use the vertical space to create more room on the floor. Check Ikea or Pinterest for inspiration.
One of the most important projects you can take on this summer is deep cleaning. The benefits of it go far beyond making your home look nice. Deep cleaning and disinfection are crucial before the flu season arrives. Also, it helps with the prevention of pests.
We recommend booking a professional service for maximum effectiveness. Don’t leave large appliances out of the scope. Speak to the cleaning providers in advance and ask them to include the fridge, freezer, oven, washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher in their service quote.
