Before you know it, the summer months will dawn on us. Often regarded as the best months of the year, the summer months present a window of opportunity to enjoy the limited sun and hot weather that the UK has to offer. Whether it be holidays and getaways or BBQ parties, you’ll be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t enjoy summer! Before we dip both feet into the warm summer months, you might be looking for ways to improve your home so you can kick back and relax. If you own a home, it’s likely that you’ll be constantly looking for new innovative and trendy ways to improve your home. People often say that their home is a reflection of their identity, personality and character, so why not make a few slight adjustments before we roll into the busy summer period? In this blog, we will provide a few home improvement tips you can make to your home which will not only improve the appearance of your home, but will also provide you with more space too!
From rubbish removal to jet washing outdoor areas, here are just a few improvements you can make to your home this summer!
Declutter the Garage
It goes without saying that garages can be extremely useful because of the amount of space it provides, but this can become cluttered very quickly if not maintained properly. Having a cluttered garage not only gives off a messy look, but it can also be extremely frustrating when trying to find an item which has been buried amongst a mountain of other unorganised items. Subconsciously, you might be using your garage area as somewhere to dump items that you want to keep, but don’t want to be visible to guests in the main part of your home. Whilst it might seem like a mammoth task, decluttering the garage could be the perfect way to start the summer and will certainly make those busy BBQ parties a whole lot easier when it comes to storing food, drink and cooking utensils!
There are a few ways in which you can declutter your garage. For instance, you can use shelving and boxing to compile your items into one place, labelling them so you know exactly where to find them. There’s nothing more annoying than not being able to find a specific item, so use shelving and other storage items to eradicate this issue entirely! Alternatively, if you have too many items in your garage then it might be time to dispose of some items and think about what items you really want and which ones aren’t as necessary. If you have a large amount of items, then it’s recommended that you use a domestic waste management service to dispose of any items you no longer need! At Cherry Hill Waste Ltd, we know how important it is to have a home that looks good, which is why we offer a domestic skip hire service so you can carry out your decluttering process in the most effective and efficient way possible!
Jet Wash Outdoor Areas
As soon as the weather starts to rise in temperature, it’s likely that you’ll be looking to grab a book and a glass of Pimms, pull a chair and relax. Whilst that does sound idyllic, this experience can be ruined by a dirty-looking patio area. The winter weather is often considered the worst for a number of reasons such as cold weather and early nights, but it can also leave dirt and grime on your outdoor areas. In order to give your front and back garden the appearance it deserves, why not get the jet wash out to remove any stubborn dirt? Getting down on your hands and knees with a bucket might use some serious elbow grease and will likely take you a lifetime, so using a jet wash might be the best way forward. Once completed, there’s no doubt that family and friends that visit for BBQ and summer parties will be envious of your gleaming garden!
Spruce Up The Garden
Whilst we have discussed the importance of cleaning your garden area, it might also be worth making a couple of additions too. It’s likely that you’re going to be spending a lot of time in the garden area, therefore it’s important that you turn it into an area you can be proud of! For instance, adding plants and flowers is an easy and effective way of enhancing the appearance of your garden. It might also be a good idea to invest in more garden furniture if you’re planning on having guests around. Investing in garden lights can also be a great way of adding ambience to your outside area.
Invest In a Pizza Oven
Whilst BBQ’s are a familiar favourite in UK households, pizza ovens are now also starting to become increasingly popular. You might be wondering how a pizza oven differs from just using a regular oven in your kitchen, however using a pizza oven offers an entirely different experience. Essentially, pizza ovens are effective because they allow you to cook Italian style pizzas at high temperatures. Yes, you can cook a pizza in a regular oven, but you can only cook a traditional and authentic Neapolitan style pizza in a pizza oven. Incorporating this into your outside area not only adds a whole new dimension to your summer parties, but it can also be great fun. Spending the day making your own dough and pizza sauce is a much more fulfilling experience as opposed to chucking a frozen pizza in the oven. There are a whole range of different pizza ovens at varying prices, meaning you can invest in one without completely breaking the bank. If you have guests over, take their order beforehand with their chosen toppings, create their perfect pizza and you’ll be known as the best pizza chef in the family. It might take a few goes to really perfect the art of making a pizza, but after a while you’ll be giving Gino D’Acampo a run for his money!
Fresh Lick of Paint
Admittedly, it can be a bit of a mundane task, but giving your house a fresh lick of paint could be a task that needs to be completed before the busy summer period kicks in. Whilst it would be ideal, paint doesn’t last forever and needs to be recoated every couple of years. If you notice that the paint is cracking, peeling or bubbling, then it might be time to get the brush and bucket out. In fact, you might even think that the current colour you’re using is outdated, so it might be worth considering a colour that is a bit more modern and trendy! As aforementioned, it is a task that isn’t exactly associated with fun, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make it more enjoyable. It might be worth putting some music on or asking family and friends to help you out! Again, it’s recommended that you complete this before summer because painting is certainly not a task you want to be doing on a boiling hot day in July.
