With the warmer months approaching fast now is the time to make your life easier by getting your home prepared in advance for when the hot weather arrives. With a little work now your home will be ready for a summer filled with making memories, entertaining and lots of fun times with family and friends.
Prepare Your Indoor Space
While those chunky knit throws and pillow covers were perfect for cozying up on the sofa on cold winter nights, they are guaranteed to be less appealing come the summer. Swapping your warmer room accessories with more lightweight options is the perfect way to be able to lounge around indoors feeling comfortable rather than clammy. Swapping over pillow covers to more cooling options such as silk or cotton will instantly feel like summer is on its way.
There’s nothing more frustrating than trying to get to sleep when you’re feeling overheated and stuffy, so bedrooms require special attention in readiness for the summer months. Swap your duvets with high tog ratings for summer weight duvets and then add crisp cotton duvet covers, pillowcases and sheets to create blissfully cool-feeling bedding for warm nights. If you’re someone that usually has lots and lots of pillows on the bed, then now is the time to ditch them until the colder weather returns, as they are likely to spend more time discarded on the bedroom floor than on the bed in the heat of summer.
Avoid any last minute issues by getting servicing and maintenance work booked in and completed before summer arrives.
Get your HVAC serviced and maintained in preparation for the summer by a professional company such as Action Cooling and Heating Fort Myers. Servicing now should help to avoid any air conditioning hiccups at a time when you will need it most.
If you have a pool at home, don’t forget to allow enough time to get it ready for the summer, so that you can make the most of it when the warmer weather arrives.
Green thumbs at the ready, it’s time to get planting! Making your outside space look fabulous will provide an instant summer vibe for your garden. Brightly colored flowers will look stunning in the bright sunlight and will also perfume the air with their delicate fragrance.
Why not try incorporating pots filled with vibrant flowers or plants in the garden? The addition of colorful pots filled with beautiful blooms will create the perfect backdrop for outside entertaining over the summer.
Summer Wardrobe at the Ready
Now is also the time to release those summer clothes out from wherever they have been stored over the colder months and get them ready for use. Start getting the clothes washed, aired and ironed as necessary so that they are prepared and ready to wear if a heatwave arrives unexpectedly. If you have kids, don’t forget to make them try their clothes on, as they may have shot up since the last time they wore them.
