October is here. You know what that means, right? Summer is right around the corner! Over the next few weeks, you will notice a significant rise in the temperature outside. And that means it is going to get a lot hotter inside as well! But there are plenty of ways you make sure you don’t get too uncomfortable this summer. Here are my favourite tips.
Get Fixed Before Winter Hits Again
Your home could have taken a battering over winter. So now is the perfect time to make sure everything is okay with your heating system. After all, you don’t want to find that it’s broken by the time autumn rolls around! So give it a quick once-over to make sure everything is doing just fine. If you have been planning on installing a new heating system, such as gas fireplaces, get all that done now. Then, you can simply relax over summer and not worry about being caught out by malfunctions next winter!
Gathered a load of junk and clutter over winter? Now is the time to sort it all out. During the spring and summer, you will want to open all your windows to ensure your house feels bright and fresh. That won’t work if you have a lot of junk kicking around the place! So before the good weather sets in and you want to spend all day at the beach, spend some time going through your clutter. Take anything you don’t want anymore to your local charity shop. Throw away things that are old or broken; there is no reason to hold onto it! After your de-clutter, you will find that you have a lot more space in your home. All ready for summer!
Keep The Mozzies Out
No one wants to get bit by mozzies! It’ll lead to a whole load of itching and uncomfortable nights in bed. So you need to plan how you can keep them out of your home now. Keeping a clean home helps. But one more effective method is to install some window nets to all your windows. These allow you to keep your windows open while preventing any creepy crawlies from coming inside. You will also be able to find net doors that can go inside your main entrance ways. It also pays to invest in a canopy bed that is made for keeping the mozzies at bay!
Brighten Up Paint Work
If you think one of your rooms could do with a repaint, you should think about doing that now. Otherwise, it’ll get so hot; you may not feel like doing it! If you do it now, your rooms will be nice and bright for summer. Thinking of a complete revamp for your rooms? Then opt for light neutral colours. These will help your rooms feel cooler through summer, and will also add a nice touch of elegance. The neutral tones won’t be too summery so will also work well in winter.
Too hot this summer? Not with these fantastic home tips!
