You might be forgiven for thinking the summer has already started thanks to all the warm weather we have been having. But rest assured, summer is still on its away, even if it is only round the corner. There is just enough time to improve your home in time for summer when we can look forward to even warmer days and brighter nights, but what should you focus on?
Giving your home a spring clean, re-organising, sorting your outdoor space from which to enjoy the better view should all be on the list. But so should things that often get overlooked, such as your internal doors. It normally happens that the more functional items get overlooked, but they can have a considerable impact on the whole appearance of your living space. So what things do your doors need before the summer starts?
When you look closely at your doors, you may well notice that they are dirtier than you realise! Don’t forget, you use them all day every day and how often do the members of your family use the actual handle to open and close them?! Dirt can transfer from hands onto them and build up without you realising so giving them a good polish will make them look instantly better. If you’re lucky enough to have internal doors with glass too, make sure you give those panes a good clean. The glazing of the doors allows light to pass through rooms and into the inner spaces of your home, brightening it right up. Any dirt you have on them will block this from happening so don’t let that be the case! You want to bring the sunshine indoors in the summer months!
A lick of paint
Perhaps they are looking tatty, or maybe you just want a new colour scheme to lift your home; whatever the reason, painting your doors can change the whole look and feel of your home in (almost) an instant. If you get the right stuff, this doesn’t even have to be a major job so head to your nearest local hardware store and get a bit of advice.
A complete overhaul
Perhaps your doors are too far gone. Or maybe they are so old fashioned you can’t bear them anymore. Maybe you opted for something super stylish, and it’s no longer within the realms of your personal taste. There are many reasons for wanting new doors, so whatever yours are, why not consider replacing them? You could start with a room at a time to keep costs down, but these days, you can find remarkably well-priced options online, and they will be delivered too, so no worries on how you’ll get them home! If you are considering new doors, have a think about whether you do want them to be glazed too, especially with summer on the way. The addition of planes of glass can transform how light your space is.
Summer is just round the corner, so don’t delay any further – make sure your internal doors get the love they need in time for the new season!
