Is Your House Summer-Ready?

If predictions are to be believed, the UK is set for another hotter-than-average summer this year, with temperatures set to soar well into July.

While you may have been ready for summer since January, your home may not be quite ready for the transition!

As the days get longer and the weather gets warmer you may be thinking about refreshing your home ready to entertain friends and make the most of the summer months.

If changes in your home are on a slightly larger scale than a general tidy-up then you may want to consider renting a storage unit to help you get ‘summer-ready’.

We bring you our top tips for getting your house in shape for summer.

1-    Swap decorations – One of the most cost-effective ways to get your home ready for summer is to swap anything that reads “winter” for lighter, airier substitutions. Swap out heavy throws, blankets and dark fabrics for light textiles and bright summer shades of blue, white, yellow and green.

2-    Redecorate – Many people use the summer as an opportunity to redecorate their homes. If you’re planning a project, don’t forget that you will need somewhere secure to store your belongings while you work. Storing your possessions in a Spaces and Places unit will protect them from paint or damage while you makeover your home.

3-    Wardrobe – If the weather does take a turn for the better, it’s unlikely that you’ll need heavy coats, woolly scarves and big boots taking up valuable space in your wardrobe. Pack anything you don’t need into a case and store it out of the way.

4-    Make a garden action plan – One of the best things about summer is spending time outside and enjoying the garden. If you have been storing BBQ’s, garden furniture, and summer sports equipment over the chilly months then use this opportunity to get them out and give them a good clean ready for another season’s use. You may even want to declutter your shed/garage so you actually have somewhere safe to store garden kit when you’re not using it!
