Tips To Get Your Home Ready For Spring/Summer
There is no denying that the winter was cold, wet and miserable again this year and now that the sun is finally starting to break through the clouds, we can start to get excited for spring and summer. For many, these are their favourite seasons and it goes without saying that the warmer weather, longer days and blooming flowers instantly improve the general mood of the nation.
Spring is often a time for a change and of course, many will be planning a ‘spring clean’ but, now is actually the perfect time to carry out some maintenance around your home too. To help anyone wanting to tackle some home tasks ready for spring/summer, Building Vision London have put together some of their top tips to get their home ready for this time of year.
Update your interior decor
It would be very expensive to completely redecorate every time the seasons changed but, there are some inexpensive updates you can make to your interior decor at this time of year. Freshening up your most-used rooms is the perfect place to start, take your kitchen, for example, simply repainting the cupboard doors and changing your blinds can make so much difference.
Also, whilst you’re undertaking your spring clean, consider rearranging the furniture and replacing or throwing out any old damaged items you’ve been ignoring over winter. You can also invest in some new accessories your rooms, why not lighten your cushions and throws as well as bring the outdoors in with some flowers and plants.
Give your garden some TLC
Over winter, your garden is the first thing to get neglected and you can almost guarantee that you haven’t spent any time out there since last summer. As soon as the weather starts to brighten up you should take the time to give your garden some well needed TLC.
Simply cutting the grass, planting some flowers and trimming back anything that has grown out of control over winter will make a big difference to the overall look. It is also worth power washing your patio or decking and wiping down your garden furniture too. Fully prepare your garden to be used again.
Fix up your home’s exterior
The harsh winter weather can batter the exterior of your home and you may notice, now it’s lighter outside for longer, how sorry for itself it is looking. It is so easy to overlook your home’s exterior when you’re freshening up your property but, you really should give it some well-deserved attention.
Start by cleaning your windows frames and washing down your exterior doors, you will instantly see a difference. You can also fix any imperfections, such as cracks, in your home’s facade and give it a fresh lick of paint to brighten up the colour ready for the spring/summer.
Complete any unfinished jobs
Lastly, take the time to go around your property and make a list of jobs that have never been finished. So many people start a DIY job but never actually get round to completing it and whilst you may have easily overlooked these things during the busy winter months, this time of year is perfect to get things done.
