Why NOW Is The Time To Update Your Home
Spring, it is said, breathes new life into the world around us. And whilst we are not quite at spring’s door just yet, the change in the weather recently means that we are starting to feel anticipation for warmer days.
And that means the opportunity and renewed vigour to improve our home and gardens.
But why is now the right time to update your home?
Improved weather after the freezing temperatures of winter makes spring the ideal time for all kinds of home improvement, especially those that need completing outdoors. Most landscape gardeners will advocate spring as the time to make major changes in the garden, allowing plants, shrubs and trees time to become established before the heat of summer and the autumn rains.
It also makes sense for improvements in the home too. Whether that is deciding on sliding wardrobes for the bedroom or decorating the living room, the slightly longer days that come with February and the more settled weather seem to help us accomplish more.
Great deals on supplies
After the rush of the festive season, the January sales bring some bargains but the deals and discounts on home improvement supplies don’t always start until springtime. This is because more retailers know that this is the time of year that we start to make decisions about everything from home extensions to decorating.
If you know what it is you are looking for, and a favoured supplier offers a lucrative discount, it could be the time you snap up a bargain.
It is also the time of year that new trends come online, and so some suppliers will be looking to free warehouse space for the new line of items.
Enjoy the summer with new improvements
When the summer (finally) arrives and if we are fortunate enough to see the sun and day time temperatures in double figures, we want to enjoy it – and not spend the time knee-deep in wallpaper paste or with a garden in the middle of a landscaping project.
By starting and completing home improvements now, you can enjoy them for the rest of the year but more importantly, you can enjoy the summer.
Great for if you considering selling your property
Spring is also the time that many homeowners make the decision to sell their property. And for buyers, spring is the time that they start to seriously look for their next property.
Thus making home improvements now will see you possibly increase your home’s value too. If you aren’t taking on big home improvement projects, simple tasks such as painting the interior of your home to give it fresh appeal when potential buyers come to view are also worth completing now.
Being inspired is what drives us to make the changes that we love but when the sky is grey for days on end and the days short, there can be little to fire the imagination.
Longer evenings, lighter mornings and slightly warmer days all help to inspire us to take a different view of our home, inside and out.
