With Easter on the way, spring is only just around the corner. That means warmer days, lighter nights, and an all-around better mood. Springtime is brilliant because it’s the ideal temperature and offers an excellent compromise after the darkness of the winter.
However, this doesn’t mean you don’t have anything to do before the flowers start to bloom. Your home will be winterised to help you survive the colder months, which means it’s essential to transform the interiors to ensure they reflect the changing seasons. Thankfully, the following upgrades are all you require to get the job done.
Fix The Air Con Unit
Air conditioning units are becoming more popular in the UK with rising temperatures. They weren’t needed in the past as the mercury never rose above 25°C. Now, with some days hitting 30°C and above, the summer can be brutal. The spring is potentially very warm, too, since May is usually the best month weather-wise. With air conditioning repair services, you can be ready for whatever global warming throws at you. If air con isn’t your thing, it’s time to swap the heavy curtains for blinds and open the windows as wide as possible to let a breeze waft through.
Switch To LED Bulbs
Anyone worried about harming the planet doesn’t need to fret, not when you can install LED light bulbs in your home. Incandescent bulbs are popular during the wintertime because the dim glow they emit is ideal for creating a cosy atmosphere. However, they are 25 times worse off regarding running time. That means switching to LED bulbs will save you more on your energy bills. Also, the light they give off is brighter and airier, which is perfect for when the long nights set in and you want a lighter environment.
Paint Your Front Door
A new front door is a fantastic way to give your home greater kerb appeal. If you’re wondering why this is important in the spring, it’s because a lot of buyers start their search when the autumn and winter months have finished. Therefore, if you’re looking to sell and move to a new pad, March and April are the best periods to invest in your home since it means you’ll have longer to gear up for negotiations. A tin of paint is helpful as it adds a couple of grand onto the listing price without costing you a fortune. According to the research, black and dark grey hues command the biggest bids.
Tweak Your Outdoor Area
Going outside has been the only respite in a pretty tough year for everyone. However, the bad weather has meant that you have spent more time indoors than you would have liked. With the weather getting milder, you can finally utilise the space and take the pressure off your interior. For example, teaching the kids outdoors, if they aren’t at school, is a great way to make learning fun. Plus, with gatherings in gardens being legal by the end of March, your outdoor area will be pivotal for reconnecting with loved ones.
How will you welcome spring into your home? Thanks for reading have a great week Jade x
