Summer has arrived and with it, come the summer renos. All the jobs you’ve been thinking about during winter can now be added to your to-do list. We’ve put together a list of some summer projects you can sink your teeth into.
A fresh lick of paint
This may seem like a simple task, but a new coat of paint can make a massive difference to the appearance of your home. The first thing someone sees is the exterior of your property, so a fresh coat of paint can look really sharp. If your current paint is flaky and coming off, take the time to prepare your surface before painting to avoid any mistakes.
Upgrade your fence
A fence can add privacy to your backyard and can make a huge difference, especially if you’re entertaining guests in your garden. When your fence is free of the usual signs of wear, it can transform the appearance of your home. If you’re not sure what fence is right for you, check out this article here.
Refresh your outdoor area
Refresh your outdoor area and get into all the nooks and crannies that were missed during winter. Any deterioration around like mould, grout in between tiles, and cobwebs are often places that are out of sight, out of mind so focusing on these areas will make a massive difference to your outside space. It’s the perfect time of year to plant in your garden too, get the whole family involved and bring some brightness and colour to your home.
Upgrade your furniture
Refresh your existing furniture with a coat of paint to make it pop in your entertaining area. Do you know anyone with pallets? Make this upcycled pallet sofa and table if you want to try to DIY your own outdoor furniture. This is a fun project and gives you a chance to make something you’re keen to show off.
Build a compost area
A compost area is a great place for your organic household waste. Not only is this beneficial for the environment, but it will also make your garden thrive. The best way to install one is to purchase a bin from a local store and build wooden housing around it to disguise its appearance.
