Summer is almost here and that means it’s time
to prepare your home to match the changing season.  Whether you run a business, rent out
your space as summer vacation accommodation, or just want to make the most of
the sunny season, here are 5 tips to prepare your home for the summer months.

Summer Cleaning
We’ve all heard of spring cleaning, but summer cleaning is even more
important. As the summer months’ approach, it’s time to pack away all the wooly
blankets and winter accessories and get your house geared for long summer days and nights.
It’s best to set aside an entire Saturday and
get the family together for a summer cleaning spree. Start by packing away all
your winter items – clothing, blankets, heaters, etc. – and bringing out your
summer accessories.  A top tip is
to keep organised. Fill plastic containers with all your seasonal items, and
pack them aware securely each time the season changes. You might also find that
vacuum sealing that bulky winter wardrobe frees up loads of cupboard space.
Make this a routine you follow every 4 months to make sure your home matches
the season.
Do a Little DIY
Windows that get stuck, doors that slam and
broken air-conditioning units might have been okay during the winter, but in
summer you need every tool you have to be working to keep comfortable in the
heat. Make a list of all the problems around your house and address them during
spring when the weather is nice. Again, if you make this a habit, you will look
after the value of your property and find that minor problems don’t escalate
into expensive renovation and repair jobs later down the line.
A Splash of Colour
Match your home to the mood of the season. Depending on the weather in your area, winter
might call for a pallet of navy blue, greys, and darker colours, but that just
looks gloomy in the summer. Add light colours like teal, white and yellow to
make any home feel like it’s dressed for summer, too.
Make It a Home
Summer is all about having family and friends
over, and it needs to feel accessible, open and welcoming to your guests. If
you’re not sure how to get that homely feel, check out some of the
accommodations and summer homes in Dripping Springs,
Texas. This area is renowned for open, inviting homes that bring the wonder of
nature indoors.  A summer break to
this stunning part of Texas is also highly recommended!
Shift to Entertainment Mode
Get your fridge ready for summer by swapping
soups for summer popsicles, tea for iced tea, and hot meals for tapas and
finger foods. You might also want to get your barbecue ready for impromptu
dinner parties with friends. Apart from your fridge, make sure any outdoor or
communal area is ready for guests. That means ample seating, and, if you have
space, space for people to spend the night.
Rest and Relaxation

Summer is all about relaxing and enjoying the
warmth. Make sure your house is ready for friends and get ready for long nights
of laughter.
