Creating more space is the biggest reason homeowners take on makeover projects in the summer. As temperatures rise, it is a hugely popular time to make strong decisions about the interior of your home and let the creative juices flow.
Making any kind of home improvement needs careful thought and it’s up to you how you bring the magic to life in your house. But planning a project now is a really great time to add real wow factor to your home, and create a stunning space that you can enjoy all the year round.
Whether you’re looking for a simple summer room transformation or perhaps something slightly more special, like creating a glazed extension, it is time to take the plunge. Just think, if you make the right decision now, you’ll have a beautiful, bespoke space to enjoy this winter – and your Christmas could be the best one yet.
How to transform your home is entirely up to you but map out your plans in the summer and you will be doing yourself a favour. While you’re enjoying the better weather, start mapping out your plans and get some solid advice.
If you’ve been enjoying your garden this month and have appreciated the ‘outdoor room’ – why not create a glazed extension so you can enjoy the weather even when the sun goes in.
It is a really good idea to think about your home and the look you are trying to achieve way before you embark on any kind of transformation project.
While it’s sunny, think about what areas in your garden attract the greatest amount of light, and how you could make the most of it when planning your glazed extension.
Opening up the back of your house to introduce effortless access to the outdoors means you’ll be able to enjoy wide-open views of your garden all year round.
Imagine waking up to a bright autumnal day or even watching the snow falls outside, and enjoying it from the comfort of your new warm and cosy space.
