4 Home Renovations To Make The Most Out Of This Summer

Summer is here already, and there is nothing that resonates with people more than getting to enjoy the longer days and warmer weather in the great outdoors. If you’ve been thinking about a renovation that will allow you to get the most out of the hotter months, then here are some suggestions to transform your home in preparation for summer.

1. The Ultimate Entertaining Area

To make the most of this summer, you need to make sure you spend as much time outdoors as possible. To do this, renovate your backyard to include the ultimate entertaining area. If you’re going to be spending a lot of time there, you’ll want it to include a high quality patio or deck. It’s a good idea to go online and check out patio and deck builder websites such as www.AdaptItGroup.com.au to see what’s available. Don’t stop there though – you can also include a beautiful outdoor dining set with plenty of seating, some hanging plants to add some colour, and a double cooktop barbeque with a bar fridge.

2. Gardener’s Paradise

A landscaping renovation is no easy feat as your garden paradise may look substantially different depending on the time of year. Summer is a great time to help your garden shine as flowers and other plants feed off the warmth and become acclimatised to their surroundings. You don’t have to go overboard with colour and variety; stick to a smaller number of species that you can alternate and repeat throughout the backyard. Also, make your garden something you can work on continually – have a section of your garden set up with vegetables, fruits and herbs.

3. Tropical Haven

The ideal summer renovation is a tropical escape. The first step is to install an in-ground swimming pool, big or small, that you can laze by and cool off in. Once this is done, use the pool as the focal point for the rest of the space. Include pebble pathways leading to the pool, or to different locations around the yard, and set up a hammock or day bed in amongst some shady foliage. Natural products are the key to this renovation, so try incorporating something like bamboo poles along the fence line that can have vines growing throughout. Also, keep garden accessories such as furniture made from natural products, such as a hardwood dining set.

4. Indoor/Outdoor Living

One of the major elements to install for an indoor/outdoor renovation are doors that allow you to open up the entire area. Floor to ceiling, glass bi-fold doors are your best option, as it will allow the entire wall that separates your home from the yard to be opened up. Once this is done, your only limit is your imagination. Put in a deck in if you don’t already have one, include a large outdoor kitchen so you can move mealtime outside, have an array of potted plants inside that tie-in with the greenery outside, and have your outdoor furniture tie-in with the theme of your indoor living space.

    I’ve always wanted to knock out one of the walls in my front room to make a much larger living area. A tropical haven sounds and looks like the style to go for this summer. A very interesting article to read.
