Top tips to smarten up your home for summer

Homeowners wishing to spruce up properties this summer can look to top tips from home improvement experts to give abodes a refresh in time for the new season.

As the sun is set to make more of an appearance in the coming months, the days leading up to June 21st are a prominent time to carry out home enhancements to create the best base for entertaining and creating sun-kissed memories.

Integrating elements of the outdoors with the interior of the home, helps to revitalise living spaces – and the right improvements can ensure comfort, space and serenity, to start enjoying your property once again, after a year of being cooped up.

As restrictions are relaxed and everyone begins to mingle, now is the perfect opportunity to spruce up home surroundings, to create a location for gatherings with family and friends.

John Evans, managing director of Stormclad, said: “As the world begins to open up and we are allowed to connect with one another again, it’s a great time for people to refresh their properties before social gatherings at home commence.

“New surroundings will help create a clear mindset going forwards into the future, whilst providing us with a location we look forward to unwinding in after we return to our previously busy lives – outside the house.

“We’ve compiled this list of tips to consider for home improvements ahead of the new season, many of which are simple and easy to do, providing lasting results.”

Here is the list of five top tips to spruce up your home for summer:

  1. Windows and roofs

Whether its upgrading current windows or refurbishing a conservatory roof, these home improvements tend to be overlooked, when in fact they make a huge difference to not only the overall kerb appeal of a home, but to the atmosphere inside the property.

New windows can allow an abundance of lighting into properties, creating the illusion of more space and a breathable environment.

At Stormclad, we offer an array of services which can be tailored to individual personal tastes - whether people want a modern or more traditional look, our extensive options allow individuals the creative freedom they desire when working towards their dream home. From bay windows to sliding sash windows, glass conservatory roofs to tiled roofs; we’ve got it covered.

  1. Verandas and carports

Verandas and carports offer the perfect solution for outside shelter if the Great British weather unpredictably poses a threat to BBQs in the backyard.

Not only do these shelter options offer a protective space, they also add to the overall aesthetic of a property. Available in a variety of styles and colours, a veranda or carport addition can be standalone or attached to the side of the house. Essentially, homeowners are presented with a creative opportunity through planning its design, as they have full control on how it will appear upon completion.

  1. Bi-fold and sliding doors

New doors can completely transform the overall feel of a home, enabling natural light, maximising security and offering a modern lift to any property.

Bi-fold doors offer a larger, uninterrupted glass area, really connecting the outdoors with the interior of the home and enhancing the view from inside the property.

  1. Conservatory refurbishment

Conservatories act as an idyllic location for living and entertaining in the summer months, offering front row seats to the summer sunlight in the garden, whilst extending indoor space.

If your conservatory has lost its sparkle e.g. if it cannot maintain a comfortable temperature, or is leaking or looking unkempt, it may be in need of a refurbishment.

Whether you’re looking to update certain features of a conservatory, or are wanting to upgrade it entirely, we offer a range of services that will help restore any conservatory.

  1. Add some colour to your front door

Front doors can completely change the face of a home, and adding a splash of colour can entirely refresh the overall appearance of a property. We offer a variety of external front doors, available in a number of styles, materials and colours; providing lots of choice when it comes to creating a unique look to your home.
