It’s that time of year again, the time when we all start getting that itch to do some home improvement. The days are getting longer, the weather is getting better, and we just want to give the whole place a fresh new look and a new personality.
Because let’s face it, we’ve all been stuck in our homes for far too long over the last twelve months and it’s time to roll up those sleeves and get stuck into some DIY. But where to begin? It can sometimes feel a bit overwhelming when every room has “that thing” you’d like to change, but for maximum impact, here are the areas that you should be focusing on.
We have all been honing our culinary skills during the pandemic as we tried to recreate our favorite dishes at home and pushed ourselves to keep trying new things. As a result, we have all noticed those things about our kitchen that we’d really like to change.
Are you fed up with not having enough work surface space? Maybe you’d like to rip up those work surfaces altogether and try some marble? Or maybe you’ve finally had enough of that useless old cooker and it’s time for a new one. The kitchen is the heart of any home so you should absolutely treat yourself to the one you feel speaks to you.
Those of us who have been lucky enough to have a garden over the last year or so know how much of a positive impact it’s had on our lives and our mental health. With the better weather coming back in, and with lockdown restrictions being eased, we can all start looking forward to spending more time outside with our family and friends.
If you don’t really feel like putting a blanket down on the wet grass again this summer, why not install a deck in your garden? Composite decking is durable and easy to maintain, and the fact that it’s made from recycled materials means that you are making an environmentally responsible choice. You can read more about different options and browse inspiration at Ecoscape UK. They also have composite fencing options if you want to give the garden a complete makeover.
There’s a reason why bathrooms account for such a large percentage of all home renovation projects: they’re so difficult to get right! We’ve all moved into new homes and thought “We’ll get around to fixing the bathroom at some point,” and then promptly let it slide right down to the bottom of our to-do lists.
A bathroom renovation can be as simple as a fresh coat of paint and some new fixtures to completely putting in a new bath and shower. If you want to try something different without turning it into a bomb site, why not put some tiling up to give it a new, fresh look? Some shutters can add a nice continental look to replace those tired old blinds, and hey, you might find that once you start, it’s hard to stop!
