Now that spring is well underway it can only mean one thing – summer is nearly here! With longer days and warmer weather, summer is the perfect time to start thinking about home renovations. Whilst you may have been planning them for months, the excitement will start to build as you finally have the opportunity to work on them! With that in mind, here are 5 home improvements you can make this summer:

  • Renovate Your Front And Back Gardens

One of the best renovations you can do during the summer is working on your front and back gardens. As these are probably the places you’re going to be spending most of your weekends, you’re going to want to make sure they look incredible. Whether you’re having guests around or you are enjoying some family time in the garden, a renovation is a great way to encourage everyone to spend more time outside.

  • Redo Any Damaged Or Worn Floorings

If your floorings are starting to look a little old and tired, you may want to consider getting them redone. Whilst it doesn’t take long, you will find that you have to move all of the furniture out of the room before you get started. Having the luxury of putting everything outside where it’s dry makes summer the perfect time to get your flooring done!

  • Upgrade Your Kitchen Or Bathroom

Summertime is the time for parties and get-togethers, so ensuring you have a nice kitchen and bathroom is vital. As two of the most visited rooms during a party, you will want to make sure you have a kitchen and bathroom you are proud of. Whether this means renovating completely or just giving them a little bit of an upgrade, you won’t regret it.

  • Add An Extension To Your House

Whilst this is probably the most extravagant suggestion on the list, summer is the perfect time to add an extension to your house as you don’t have to worry about the bad weather. Often rain and frost can put an end to a day of work, so having your home renovation finished on time is unlikely. During the summer it may be hotter, but at least it’s dry enough for workmen to be able to complete the job at hand.

  • Consider Redecorating Any Rooms That Need TLC

Finally, you might want to consider looking at any rooms that need a little bit of TLC. Whether it’s been years since they’ve been decorated or you’re fancying a change, you may be surprised how much a fresh coat of paint and some new wallpaper can make. If you’re on a budget, replacing the furniture is a great place to start.
