AD | I always find Spring and Summer to be a great time to start on new projects. Maybe it’s something in the air, it makes me want to do and achieve more and finally tackle those things I’ve been putting off over the Winter. Tasks around the home can feel like a real chore and is probably one of the main areas of life we procrastinate with the most! With that in mind, 2019 might be the year you finally tackle those home improvements that need doing or embark on some brand new Summer home improvement ideas!
From small repair jobs to complete remodels, there’s a huge range of Summer home improvement projects to get stuck into this year. So what are you going to invest your time in this Summer? Here are some Summer home improvement ideas to get you started!
Spruce up your garden
In terms of Summer home improvements, the garden is probably a good place to start and you’ll likely be spending much more time in it as the weather gets warmer. Sprucing up your garden could mean anything from jet washing your patio, creating your own vegetable patch or a much bigger home improvement project for the Summer, like fitting a hot tub or building a Summer house!
Get your conservatory fitted with a solid roof
…if you haven’t got one already. Conservatories are great additions to the home, especially in the Summer as they look out over the garden. But a conservatory roof, along with all the windows can make it stifling to sit in but also make it freezing cold in the Winter. So a really valuable home improvement idea for this Summer would be to hire Guardian roof installers if it’s not something you can do yourself.
Getting a solid roof fitted to your conservatory might be a summer home improvement but you’ll benefit from it all year round! For quotes and more information, Guardian warm roof approved installers, CSM North East have all your answers.
Guttering, roof slates and those other niggly little jobs
Not the most glamorous of home improvement projects for sure but Summer is the perfect time to get those annoying ‘odd jobs’ out of the way, like cleaning your gutters (which after the storms we’ve been having lately, could probably do with a clean!), replacing or fixing any broken roof slates, weeding the patio and anything else boring but worth getting done. Working outside in the sunshine with a cool glass of something refreshing is the perfect time to get these jobs done. Don’t forget the sun cream!
Re-paint doors and windows
I can speak for myself when I say the paint on doors and window frames cracks over time and can lead to looking really naff. Our front door needs a serious coat of paint! Almost anything can make the paint on your doors and window frames look worn and old, from chipping it with another object, leaving mugs and things that stain it on them and just general wear and tear of life and the seasons. Make it one of your Summer home improvement projects to give them a once over and watch what a tiny job will do to your room!
Re-model the room you’ve been putting off
If you have the money to do so, now is the time to finally tackle that re-model. Do as much of it yourself or hire trusted professional friends of family to give you a hand where necessary. If it’s your kitchen that needs doing, think about how if you get it done in the Summer, by Christmas you’ll have a gorgeous new kitchen to use when cooking the Christmas dinner!
Will you be putting any of these Summer home improvement ideas into action this year? What jobs need doing around your house? And what have you been putting off? Let us know in the comments!
