Summer 2023 is almost here. There are lots of beautiful and sunny days waiting for you just around the corner, so it’s only right that you prepare your home for the summer now rather than later. It’s especially important to do this if you have kids, as they’ll be spending most of the summer weeks in and around your home.
Where should you begin? Look no further than these top tips to prepare your home for summer 2023.
Improve Your Lawn
Let’s start with your lawn.
Most homeowners take great pride in their lawns. After all, the lawn is usually the first thing you notice whenever you look at someone’s house. When the lawn is green and healthy, then it makes a great visual impression.
So, if your lawn looks a little worn out after the long winter months, it’s time to spruce it up. Then, during the summer months, it’s important that you keep your lawn looking good. Don’t just focus on your lawn for a few days and then forget about it for the rest of the year, as lawns need excellent care all year round.
Clean Your BBQ
The chances are, it’s been a while since you last used your BBQ. Not to worry, though, as you can easily clean your BBQ. Once your BBQ is clean, you can enjoy plenty of burgers and hot dogs all summer.
Add Outdoor Lighting
If you want to make those relaxing summer evenings extra special, it’s a good idea to install some outdoor lighting. Whenever the sun starts to go down, you can turn the lights on and have some refreshing drinks on your porch or backyard (in comfortable chairs, of course).
Upgrade Your Furniture
Don’t forget that summer isn’t always sunny. In fact, there have been plenty of summers in the past where the weather has been terrible, from heavy rainfall to harsh winds.
So, if similar weather conditions appear this summer, you’ll have to spend some time indoors and watch some Netflix. However, you won’t be able to have the most relaxing time possible if all of your furniture and décor is dated and haggard. This is why there’s no better time in the calendar year than just before summer to upgrade your furniture and make your home’s interior feel like brand-new.
Before you splash the cash, set yourself a furniture budget for the summer. Also, try to arrange what you will do with your old furniture, such as donating it or selling it on eBay. Not only will this free up space, but it’ll also allow you to make some extra money which you can then put towards the new furniture. It’s a no-brainer!
Buy Some Outdoor Games Equipment
Do you have young and excitable children that’ll be off school this summer? If the answer is yes, you need to buy some outdoor games equipment to keep them occupied when the sun is out.
From basketball hoops to soccer nets, you’re truly spoilt for choice. Try to go with the options that your kids will love the most – and even consider taking them to the toy store for some in-person shopping so that they can pick and choose themselves.
