Summer is well and truly on its way and now is as good of a time as any to start throwing ourselves into revamping our beloved homes ready for the warmer months. Whether you’re looking to completely redecorate, or simply want to give it a bit of a refresh, we’re taking a look at some of the best ways to revamp your home below.
Have A Late Spring Clean
For some, spring cleaning is the perfect opportunity to finally commit to clearing out their home completely and they’ll jump on it the second March rolls around, while for others, ‘spring’ and ‘cleaning’ are two words they shudder at the thought of. Regardless of your personal attitude towards the activity, giving your house a good clean can make it feel brand new. Whether you need to invest in vacuum repair services London or simply pop down to your local supermarket for a trolley load of cleaning supplies, now is the time to do it!
Refresh Your Walls With A Lick Of Paint
So you’ve tidied up, scrubbed away ambiguous stains and you’re finally ready to rest, only to realise that things don’t look quite as perfect as you’d like them to. The sun shining through the windows is lighting up the scuff marks on your walls and it’s making you cringe – if this is you, it could be time to break out the paintbrush and get painting. A fresh coat of paint will give any room in your home an entirely new look, whether you’re brightening up a white or cream wall, or putting life back into the bold colours on your feature wall, so why not give it a try?
Have A Clear-Out
We can all be a little guilty of hoarding and so clutter can quickly become a problem in our homes. Whether you have a desk covered in letters and notes that you just don’t need anymore or your kitchen drawers are full of rusting utensils that are on their last legs, now is the time to finally break out the bin liners and start throwing things out. Chuck away anything that can’t be used anymore and try donating or selling anything that’s still of a good quality but you just don’t use. Starting the summer with a neat and tidy home will help you enjoy the weather without feeling overcrowded or overwhelmed.
Fix Up Your Garden
If you’re lucky enough to have a garden, we certainly won’t blame you if you’ve let things get a little out of control during the wet and windy months. With the weather starting to look up, however, now is the perfect time to get out there and start tidying things up ready for days full of sunbathing and impromptu barbeques. Mowing the lawn alone can make things look that little bit neater and revitalise the entire atmosphere of your garden.
Invest In Summery Scents
So your house is clean and clear, well-painted and your garden is more than ready for the sun to start shining – what now? Well, it’s time to invest in a summery scent or two. A quick spritz of air freshener or a scented candle or two can give your home a pleasant, fresh scent to impress your guests and enjoy for yourself – it’s a finishing touch to add that little bit of ‘oomph’ to all of your hard work.
You’ve cleaned, you’ve painted, you’ve cleared and you’ve spruced up and now your home is ready for summer! By putting in the hard work now, you can enjoy the rest of summer without the need for any deep cleaning or excessive housework – where will you start?
