HERE’S WHY WE’LL BE FOCUSING ON MAKING OUR HOUSE FEEL MORE LIKE A HOME THIS SUMMER…
The summer months can make it very tempting to soak up some sunshine in the garden or at the nearest outside bar. Suddenly barbecues and fire pits seem so much more tempting than during the other 11-months of the year and all those little projects we’d started around the home can easily be forgotten.
However, this year, although the His & Hers team will be savouring the sunshine, we’ll also be using the summer months to make some home improvements that we’ll hopefully appreciate all year round. Here’s why:
- One of the many interesting things we learned while reading Shawn Achor’s book, The Happiness Advantage, recently is that de-cluttering can make you feel happier and more productive. He recommends starting small (perhaps just tackling one shelf) and then gradually broadening your scope.
- Admittedly, while the sun’s shining, you may not feel like tackling fiddly DIY jobs. However, it could still be worth taking advantage of the good weather to work on the outside of your house by enlisting the help of the experts, like the team at The Restoration Group, who’ll be taking care of painting uPVC doors across the North West while we sit back and enjoy a cold drink or two in the garden. Ahhh, the joys of delegation!
- If you’re finding it hard to drift off to sleep at night during the warmer weather, it could be time to invest in a light summer duvet, and perhaps some 100% cotton bedlinen, to keep you cool on warm summer nights.
- Also, whilst tackling the bedroom, investing in a good set of blackout blinds will also help to ensure that your sleep isn’t affected by the lighter nights.
- Finally, for Friends fans who like to unleash their inner Monica, we’d heartily recommend boxing off a little time to go through your wardrobe to take stock of what you still love and what you’re ready to let go of. There’s just something about having an immaculately organised wardrobe that makes you feel ready to take on the world!
We’re very proud to bring you this feature in association with The Restoration Group. They’re based in the North West and spend their days making uPVC windows, doors and conservatories look like new.
