With the days now longer and the weather much warmer, the season for home improvement is well and truly upon us. Here a handful of projects for your house that are certain to keep you occupied this summer.
1. Maintain your garden
British winter can cause no end of damage to a garden, with flooding and bitterly low temperatures wreaking havoc on your lawn and plant beds. Spend some time rejuvenating your grass and planting new flowers as well as weeding and fence repairing. A rewarding project to undertake whose benefits are immediate to behold.
2. Paint a room in your home
Redecorating a bedroom or lounge is a relatively easy way to revitalise an element of your home. Whether updating the current colour scheme or embarking on a total change, a fresh coat of paint can do wonders for the aesthetic look of a room, and it is a summer task to carry out indoors if the heat becomes unbearable.
3. Install solar panels
Solar panels are an incredibly sensible and efficient addition to make to any household. With the potential to provide hot water and heating all year round, solar panels are becoming almost a must have in contemporary society. A great project to undertake that gives huge benefit for a fairly low difficulty process.
4. Install a patio or decking
It’s a large operation, but committing to adding a patio or decking can really open up your garden to an array of possibilities. A separate space to your lawn can house a BBQ area, a set of comfortable garden furniture, or even a dedicated outdoor area for growing fruit and vegetables.
5. Renovate your bathroom
The bathroom can sometimes be an under-appreciated room in the home with regards to routine maintenance. When you consider how much time an entire family must spend in there, it adds up to being one of the most used rooms in the house. A total revamp of wall and floor tiles as well as the possibility of new facilities can really add value to your home and is an immensely rewarding project to carry out.
Regardless of the project you choose, make sure to have a skip on hand ready for the mess. And most importantly, have fun with your project!
