Get Your Home Ready for Summer

When the sun is shining, one of the first things we think of is BBQ. So, let’s get some friends or family over and enjoy the warm weather with some relaxing drinks and great food. If you love to entertain, you likely spend a little time getting your home ready for guests to make it as comfortable as possible. Summer is a great time for some home renovations, letting you complete some improvements around the house to upgrade your property’s enjoyment levels and value!

To help with your inspiration, our team has listed some easy renovations you can do during or in time for summer to make the most of the warm weather. Read on for some handy ideas and tips.

Idea #1: Enhance the exterior

We sometimes forget about our home’s exterior as we spend most of our time in the interior. However, you’ll be surprised by what a little paint can do. Spend a little time painting the exterior areas of your home for a significant boost in aesthetics and value. Always use warm and inviting colours when painting the exterior.

Idea #2: Improve the landscaping

Lawn beautification is a significant factor when it comes to a home’s visual appeal. A great lawn defines a property’s character and says a lot about how much care you put into your place. Your landscaping is the first impression your visitors (or potential buyers if you are selling) will see. You’ll also probably spend a lot of time on the lawn during summer! Consider creating a walkway and accent it with solar lighting. This will increase the look and function of the space while keeping the running costs at zero.

Idea #3: Give your windows an upgrade

Upgrading your windows can mean increased energy efficiency, a new visual look, and more natural light in the home. So, soak up that summer sun!

Idea #4: Add or upgrade a security system

Now can be the right time to install or upgrade your security system. This is likely one of those jobs that have been on the to-do list, so let the warm weather motivate you to get it done! Improving your home security can decrease the cost of your home insurance, and you’ll be able to install a system yourself for a low price. Use this as an opportunity to add a little home automation, so you can control the features of your security or other elements of your home with your smartphone.

Idea #6: Tackle those bathroom improvements

Upgrading your bathroom doesn’t need to involve a huge renovation that costs the earth and leaves you without a toilet for months. There are plenty of mini makeovers that you can do, such as adding a new vanity top, mirror, or faucet. Paint the walls and cabinets to really refresh the look of the bathroom and reinvigorate your space.

Idea #7: Easy kitchen revisions

The kitchen is an important area, not only for everyday living but also when entertaining. It becomes the hub of the event, the hangout spot for chatter and snacks.

Idea #8: Install ceiling fans

Ceiling fans keep us cool year-round and lower energy costs, and in Summer, the more things keeping the home cool, the better. This upgrade is often overlooked but is an easy task.

The above summer home renovations are small improvements that can be done without breaking the bank. Spend a little time making your home a more enjoyable, functional, and comfortable place to be, then pop that apron on and ready the BBQ.
