SpringTime Improvements. A Great Time For Improving
It’s that time of year again when the smell of freshly cut grass begins to scent the evening air, a time when the nights start opening out and a time when the flowers beginning to bloom. Spring is also a great time to improve your home for many various reasons, such as the milder weather and longer days making work easier to undertake and less disruptive. When thinking about springtime improvements, let’s not forget that just around the corner is summer, when many of us entertain with barbecues and parties, so you need to start making those home improvements soon if you want to impress your guests this year.
Key Areas For Springtime Improvements
If you’re the kind of person who likes to have friends and family over for afternoons and evenings – with guests travelling from afar – your kitchen is key. For starters, preparing food that will both cater for tired travellers and wow your guests requires the right work surfaces, appliances and lighting, to name just a few considerations. A carefully designed and professionally installed fitted kitchen can offer numerous benefits when entertaining guests. It’s not just the food you prepare but it’s the stylish new surroundings that you are in which will really have your friends talking.
From the kitchen we naturally make our way into the garden, which is often used as a second kitchen during the summer months. Spring is the perfect time to make improvements to your garden and to maintain what you have. Staining fences and decking in the spring will not only instantly bring a fresh and clean feel to your garden but it will protect your wood ahead of the busy barbecue season.
The spare bedroom is also a popular target for home improvers during the spring months. This may possibly be as a result of complaints and comments made by grumbling guests over the festive period…who knows? However, your summer guests will certainly thank you for making a new, more comfortable rest space when they visit – especially if they’ve travelled far to see you. As guest rooms are often smaller bedrooms in your home, installing slimline fitted furniture is often a great way to maximise the available space, while still offering plenty of hanging room and storage for guests.
With all of these people coming to your home, it may be worth adding a downstairs or secondary lavatory. The last thing you want is a queue for the loo and with some simple home improvements there won’t be one. You will be surprised how little space is required to create a room with adequate space for a toilet, a wash basin and maybe even a shower!
Even if you don’t have guests all that often, Its STILL a great time to make springtime improvements, if for no other reason than to cheer yourself up after the gloom of winter. Even a simple lick of bright paint and some new kitchen cupboard doors can breath a fresh new feel to your home, making you feel more cheerful…but a new fitted kitchen would feel even better!
