Now that Spring has finally arrived and hopefully the worst of the cold, winter months are behind us, you can start preparing your home for the summer months. Hopefully there will be ample sunshine too so that you can enjoy time outside in your garden and invite loved ones over again.
Brighten Up The Interiors
You could add some vibrant accessories in certain rooms of your home to brighten up the place. The addition of fresh flowers is also a good reminder that summer is on its way and will fragrance the room nicely. You could also make your own potpourri with the leftover flowers to make a natural air freshener.
Fresh Coat of Paint
If you feel your living space is looking a little tired then why not freshen it up with a nice pastel shade to brighten up the room. With longer days and more daylight, you will be able to have a natural well lit room for longer periods of the day. Using mirrors and light colours on your wall will also open up your interior and evoke the feeling of more space which is always a good thing.
Defrost Your Fridge/Freezer
It might not be the most exciting job to do, but now is a great opportunity to defrost your fridge freezer and sort through to make sure there are not any items taking up space that have been sitting there for years. This will allow you to make much needed room for ice, popsicles, and ice cream when the weather gets hot.
If you enjoy gardening and would like to grow some fruit and vegetables for the summer months, now is the time to start planting seeds and plants. April is a good month to plant things like carrots, spinach, peas, rocket and shallots.
Preparing Garden Furniture
You can start to take out the garden furniture from storage in preparation for any guests you may have round on warmer days. It will also be a good opportunity to check whether it needs a bit of a tidy up and clean to make it more presentable, as it has been stored away during fall. A good clean can make all the difference.
Some Jobs Should Be Left To The Experts
There are certain jobs at home that you should probably not attempt to do like dealing with electrical matters or pulling your sink apart to try and fix a tap. That is where professionals such as emergency plumbing services would be able to assist.
If you are not experienced in dealing with such matters than it is far easier and safer to get in contact with an experienced professional to help you out. The last thing you want to do is make things worse. Apart from that, then it is certainly good to get stuck into any DIY jobs at home in preparation for a brand new season.
