How to Get Your Home Ready for Summer!


With Summer just around the corner, now is the perfect time to spruce up your home ready for the warm weather. In this blog we are going to be discussing the best ways to bring new life into your home this Summer.


Tidy Up Your Garden

Even though British weather can be unpredictable, your garden is the place to be in Summer so it's important to get it ready. Over the Winter chances are that your garden will have become messy due to falling leaves, unexpected winds and general weather wear. The first step is to complete a tidy up, clear away any debris that might have ended up in your garden, remove any broken or damaged garden furniture and strip your garden back to the basics.


From here you have the perfect canvas to style your garden how you want! Take a look at the latest trends and bring your garden into 2018.


Update Decor

The best way to say bye to Winter and hello to sun is by updating the decor in your home. Adding bright colours is the perfect step to take, this will lighten your home without having to change much. In Winter candles can often be prominent in your home and even though they are great all year round, taking away the candles and replacing them with fresh flowers helps liven and breath fresh air into your home.


Make the Most of Your Home

As British weather is so unpredictable it's good to be able to enjoy your home even in the rain. That's why a Conservatory or Orangery is a great investment. Imagine after a long day in the sun being able to enjoy the last bit of daylight from the comfort of your own conservatory. It not only adds an extra room to your home, but it helps you enjoy Summer from all perspectives, even when it gets cold outside.


At Durham Design, our range of Conservatory's and Orangeries are specially designed to not only look great but provide you with the best features possible. The components mean you are kept cool in Summer and warm in Winter, something most regular extensions struggle to master.
