Quit loafing around and start moving! It’s that time of the year again; have fun by swimming, barbecue parties outside, and of course, tickle your mind and create relevant home improvement projects. There are lots of things to consider in your summertime project. From one’s closet, room, and bed to one’s ceiling fan, gutters, garden, etc., indeed a lot. The hot weather would be perfect for those projects, given that rain and snow are out of the picture.
Having an ever-famous and essential summertime home innovation project would require careful planning of to-dos and budget. These projects don’t necessarily have to be significant. Start by having simple repairs or simple general cleaning around. On the other hand, do not be afraid to conduct substantial changes since it’s an investment for the future. Most of the changes would increase the value of your house. Some ideas for you are the following:
It’s always satisfying to see everything in its usual place. But try to spice up things a little bit by rearranging the rooms. Let go of the old placements of the furniture and try to scramble things up at least once in a while. Look for ideas online or ask for recommendations from anyone living in the same house. Check your items thoroughly; who knows, maybe it’s time to buy the best mattress one is eyeing for the longest time.
Rearranging the rooms would affect the aura of the house as a whole. One would feel relaxed and happy for a job well done by the end of the day. One would indeed become more comfortable staying in your room, especially now that people have to stay inside their homes most of the time. It is indeed essential to feel “at home” in your own home.
Clean the AC’s
Give the air condition unit/s time to breathe. Let them have their “baths.” Clean them thoroughly. One will need them, especially in this hot weather. Blocked or full of dirt AC’s would cause the electric bill to skyrocket big time. One may use a vacuum cleaner or water to clean the AC. Nothing will happen if one tends their AC’s with water. Clean the condenser to help it run more efficiently.
Check every part of the ACs, such as the vents and air filters. See if there are specks of dirt or leaves. One could choose to clean the AC’s every one to two months, not just in summer. This way, the life of your AC would be extended. Additionally, turn off the AC’s if it’s not so hot. Not only one lets the AC rest for a while, but it also contributes to low carbon emissions in the atmosphere.
The walls are often overlooked, but just painting the walls would make a big difference in one’s home. The walls, depending on the color one chose, would make your home attractive and warm. This would give the house a fresh look. People with plans to repaint the walls would often focus on the house’s interior walls, but painting the exterior would indeed make a statement, too, especially if one plans to sell the house sometime in the future.
Painting the walls might be pretty expensive. But this is an excellent investment as it will increase the value of the house if it’s up for sale. Choose colors that would complement the style of your home. Have fun while choosing and painting with your loved ones, that is, if one decides to paint the walls by themselves. One might consider spending more cash if they choose to hire people to do the job.
More Greenery in Gardens
Because of COVID-19, it is advisable to stay at home most of the time. In order for one to do that, why not consider having your vegetable garden? Through this, one won’t have to go outside and shop. You can have your source of fresh green leafy vegetables in your garden. Herbs, spices, fruit trees, vegetable plants are the most common greenery planted in many gardens.
It might be hard to start planting them at first, but after a few tries, one would get the hang of it. One has to be patient and keep on trying. There are lots of easy-to-grow vegetables out there. One needs to determine what they want to plant in their very own garden. Start searching for that greenery that grows well in summer now.
What matters most during these summertime projects is the fun in them. Whatever one decides to do, make sure that one involves their family and even friends. The bond will be the most essential part of any fun activities. This will make one’s bond with each other unbreakable. Please make the most of summer, have a tan outside, it’s time to inflate the pool, and have fun again. Enjoy every moment while it lasts.
