Looking forward to the half-term holidays to give your home and uplift? So am I! I did a fair bit during the summer, when the kids were off, but there are always things that can be done around the house, nothing is ever perfect. Am I the only one that thinks like this?
Perhaps you want to change up things in your home but are not sure where to start? It’s easy to scratch all of your renovation projects because it is getting too overwhelming, but I believe in you and I know you can do it. Start small and then step up to larger projects when you are ready.
Why improve my home during autumn? Shouldn’t it be an easier thing to do during summer? Or winter? You might be asking. Summer and winter come hand-in-hand with extreme temperatures, which nobody wants to be experiencing while renovating their home plus, renovating during autumn gives you the perfect opportunity to get your home ready for the cold winter months ahead.
Prepare for winter.
Handyman in London, The Handy Squad, recommends preparing your home for the chilly months ahead, so you can enjoy a warm and comfortable winter at home. Start by sealing windows and doors to reduce heat loss and draughts and don’t forget to bleed radiators, so they won’t let you down when you most need them.
As Lindy Loves mentions, “Autumn is the perfect time to start decluttering.” Go through your clothes and kitchen cupboards and see what you should keep and what could be donated.
Paint the outdoors.
If you’ve been wanting to give your outdoor area a bit of a zhuzh, why not paint it? You can easily paint your garden fence, your shed or even your house exterior during autumn. As We Love Home says, “Summer months can actually be too hot for painting as the paint can dry too fast. And you don’t want to paint in deep winter as it can be too frosty or wet. That is why autumn is the season to get your paint brush out.”
Autumn is synonym of Halloween, pumpkins, colourful leaves and all things spice. Bring those warm tones into your home and embrace the autumnal vibes with some stylish decorations.
How are you going to improve your home this autumn?
