With spring well and truly here it is time to plan ahead and think of all those ideas you had for your home during what was certainly a rather wet and dreary winter. For many people, the end of spring and the beginning of summer is the perfect time to start making those long dreamed of changes to their home, bringing it ever closer to being the home of their dreams.
You may have been dreaming of redecorating, moving your living space around and giving some of your rooms a new purpose in life. However, you could have far bigger plans that involve a complete refurbishment of one of the key rooms in your home or even the extending of your living space. Either way, now is the time to forge ahead and make those dreams a stunning reality and here, we provide some summer décor inspiration you might want to consider while you’re planning your upgrades.
A new kitchen
The heart of any family home, the kitchen is that one room that we can’t do without. Therefore, making the decision to have a complete kitchen refurbishment can be a tricky one. Summer offers the perfect chance to do this with the minimal of fuss. As long as the weather is good then it isn’t too difficult to manage without full cooking facilities for the duration of a kitchen refit. And if you don’t want salads every night then of course you can always retreat to the garden for a BBQ. If you have been living with the same kitchen for years and are desperate to change it, whether for more storage space, a breakfast bar or a brighter space, then summer is certainly the right time to get the job done.

Expand your kitchen
If you love to cook but have a small kitchen, then why not combine that new dream kitchen makeover with a kitchen extension giving you the extra kitchen space that you really want. Adding a big kitchen to your home, with bi-fold doors opening out to the garden will not only really open up the space that you have with a brighter and more spacious room, but it will also add value to your home. Big kitchens feature quite highly on home buyers’ wish lists and with good reason; cooking is becoming an increasingly popular way to relax.
Increase your living space
Of course, these are not the only big décor ideas you might be considering for your home. Having a second bathroom put in can be a great relief for families living with too few bathrooms and having them put in in the summer months can ensure they’re in, decorated, and ready for extra guests later on in the year. Here at AJG we can help suggest ideas for décor that will ensure the room fits with the flow of your house, using local suppliers and reputable products such as stunning tiles supplied by Porcelanosa. Perhaps you may consider an extension so that your home can accommodate an expanding family, or guests that come to stay. This can really help to transform your home, making it somewhere adaptable that you can imagine your family living and growing in for many years to come.
It’s not only an extension to the main building that can help add extra space to your living areas. If you work from home, the idea of a garden office may be the perfect project for the summer months. Today’s garden offices are far from the sheds of old. These truly modern buildings, again think bi-fold doors, can be fully insulated and equipped with the right electrics and internet connections to keep you comfortable all year round, which has the added benefit of reclaiming the space inside the house where your office space once was.
Nothing beats the feeling as you head into autumn of finally having made those truly stunning changes to your home.
