June 20, 2016

Summer is just around the corner, and it’s not too late to think about making some changes to your home to make the most of these hotter months. Whether you’re ready to make some big changes, or you just want some ideas of how to make a big impact, read on for our top six ways of upgrading your home this summer.

Conservatories and Outhouses

If your home is dark or you just want a new room to relax in, there’s no better place than a conservatory during the summer months. Whether you want to enjoy a delicious breakfast or just relax on a lazy Sunday afternoon, conservatories offer it all and are a great way to bring in some natural light to your home.

Two-Story Extensions

Whether you’re expecting guests for the summer or you’re just low on space, why not spend the summer designing a new second-story extension for your home? If you don’t want a conservatory but do want additional space both up and downstairs, extensions can be a great solution and can add serious value to your home – why not turn the upstairs extension into a new bedroom and use the downstairs as a sun lounge room for the summer?

If the idea of calling builders and arranging quotes sounds like too much hard work, you can get your building estimate costs from My Build Estimate, who’ll give you a tailor-made quote based on the work you need doing, so you can spend more time enjoying the summer!

Keep Cool

If you get hot during the summer months, you may want to consider purchasing a ceiling fan or air conditioning unit for your home. There are loads of ways to keep cool, so whether you go for a small plug-in fan or invest in the recently invented zero-emission air-conditioning system, you’ll find something to suit your home and budget to provide you with summer-long comfort.

Paint Your Home

Make the most of the warmer weather by painting the outsides of your home. Whether it’s the bricks, windows, guttering or beams, there is nothing nicer than a freshly painted home. For the summer months, choose brighter colours like whites and blues for a warm and welcoming finish.

Focus on your Garden

Over the cooler months, it’s easy for us to neglect our gardens. Whether we need to give it a good weed or plant some new flowers, an afternoon in the garden can help bring it back to its glory days. It could be as simple as cutting the grass, or you may want to go and install decking for a great summer of garden parties. Why not invest in a new garden set or some sun-loungers for you to soak up some rays?
