Transform your home for summer…

According to the HomeOwners Alliance, spring is the best time to sell your house, and the season is known to be the most active time for the market. Throughout spring, your home is looking its best and your garden is coming back to life. If you are thinking about selling in the near future, April is a great opportunity for you to spruce up your home with the intention of getting it ready to go on the market.

Transforming your home for summer will help re-energise the space to entice potential buyers. Store away your winter blankets, dark cushions and fluffy rugs, and add splashes of colour to align with the seasons and the sun. Even if you’re not looking to sell, changing your interior to match the seasons is a great way to reignite your love for your home each year.

The changes don’t have to be huge, it’s the little touches that count; throws, cushions, towels, bed sheets, and you can even box up your winter wardrobe and put into storage to allow yourself a little more space around the home.

The change in seasons is also a good time to think about what you really need in your home. Now that the clocks are going forward and the days are getting warmer, there’s certain items you won’t be needing for the months to come. Skis, snowboards and all the bulky items that go with winter activities can take up valuable space; putting them into storage will make room for the equipment you will be needing to take part in summer sports.
