We’re in the middle of the lovely warm weather, and in amongst thoughts of the approaching summer holidays, many of us are looking at projects we can do around the house. If you have time booked off work to look after the kids or simply itching to fill those long, lazy weekend days, what better way to make the most of your time than by completing an exciting summer renovation project?
Of course, the renovation that you take on will depend on a number of factors like your personal requirements, your budget and any time constraints. However, don’t be disheartened – summer is the perfect time to get creative and start fashioning the home of your dreams!
Here are some great renovation projects perfect to keep you busy this summer.
If your garden or outdoor space is looking a little worse for wear thanks to the scorching hot temperatures we’ve seen recently, perhaps it’s time to give it some much-needed TLC. If you find that your lawn is still suffering from yellowing, brownness or dry, patchy grass, it might be time to consider a more permanent solution. Artificial grass is a great way to instantly rejuvenate a tired lawn, ensuring your garden looks lush and green all year round!

Although not every home will have a patio, if you do have one, it’s important to regularly maintain it. If your busy lifestyle has been getting in the way of outdoor cleaning tasks, take the opportunity to make the most of the warm weather by catching up on all your outdoor chores. Weed your patio and pull up any plants appearing between slabs and make sure to thoroughly clean it, removing any build-up of dirt, mould or plant matter.
Your front door is one of the first parts of your house that people will see when visiting your home, so it’s important to ensure it looks its best! If the paint is peeling, what better time than the warm summer months to give it a refresh? Not only will the fresh coat of paint dry quicker in the warm weather, but you won’t be at risk of letting the cold in either! Alternatively, if your door isn’t in need of painting, you could also get a lovely new plaque to display your house name or number in style. Finally, this is also the perfect time to check that your doorbell is working, just in time for all those summer guests who will be visiting!
Although remodelling your kitchen is likely to be quite a significant investment, the summer months are the perfect time to spruce up your kitchen area. With the weather heating up, you can easily eat outdoors, and with BBQs, for example, you may not even need to cook in your kitchen. Whether you decide to go for a small update like investing in a new appliance or are planning to scrap the whole kitchen and start again from scratch, what better time than the present to get started?
Like the kitchen, full bathroom upgrades are likely to be both time and cost intensive. Instead, why not take advantage of the long days and time at home to DIY your way to a brand new bathroom? Add a splash of colour by painting some walls or any cabinet doors you have, or alternatively, invest in a luxurious new showerhead to make the most of your daily shower. Add a new mirror, some gorgeous fluffy towels in complementary colours and a subtly patterned shower curtain to complete your bathroom makeover.
If you’re ready and raring to go, what better time than the present to start planning your next home refresh?
