Summer is always a great time for home improvements. The sunshine and longer days make you feel like you have more time to play with, and with the lockdown, we had so much time. We made the most of the extra time spent at home by doing some summer home improvements. We have been really busy working on our house and I am impressed with how much work we have done already. Prior to the home improvements, our house was looking pretty tired. We have been in our house for over 7 years now and we haven’t really devoted time to redecorating since we moved. I switch things up here and there, but nothing extreme until this summer.
Before this big home redecoration, the most we ever did was to get new curtains and blinds a while ago. The Yorkshire Fabric Shop is a great store to shop for fabrics for blinds, curtains, so it is worth looking on their website for fabric furnishing ideas. We also decorated the children’s room some years ago and we do get new home furniture every now and again. However, this is the first time we went all out in home decoration.
Plastering and Painting
The first thing we started off with was plastering and painting. We only just finished painting the whole house some weeks ago. M did it all and it was a lot of work. We opted to use the same colour to keep things simple, and the cream paint and white doors work so no need to change it.
Redecorating the Children’s room
The kiddies got new beds. They have outgrown their toddler beds, so we decided to go for single beds for them. They love them and the single beds look great. I love the fact that they come with some storage to store extra bits neatly. You can never have too much storage. The twins also got some new bedroom furniture and a reshuffling of their bedroom. The redecoration has given the room a new look. It looks brand new!
Deep Summer Cleaning
We were able to deep clean the house. Since we were moving furniture about, we got the golden opportunity to clean so many corners and spots we haven’t been able to reach in years. It was so amazing to give the whole house a good deep clean.
