Home Improvement Tips and Trends for Post-Lockdown

Small changes in your house can make a huge impact. Whether you just need to create extra space for kids or update your bathroom on a budget.

Recently surveys just have pointed out the plans of Britons to update their homes as lockdown policies continue to be eased in the UK.

Among those renovation plans are prioritising home improvement, tidying up the garden, and/or redecorating the home inside. I am already planning to paint the whole room this summer with the money that I should be spending on a nice holiday abroad.

Here are some more tips and trends for home renovation projects.

Create a Wall Display

I always loved posters and poster cards. When I start collecting postcards a couple of years ago, I thought that the best way of keeping them organised would be displaying them on my walls.

In the beginning, I thought it would be great in a hall. But now I have it displayed in my “dining room” area and I can see it brings a lot more colour and life to the ambient. It’s also such an easy way of keeping your memories updated.

Replace Your Boiler

We all know that some repairs are inevitable whether we are locked at home or not. Changing boilers is one of the essential services that we may need to do before winter comes. However, repairing or changing a boiler is not a job to be DIYed.

So, if you are ready to repair it, it’s time to look for some professional help from Bishops Group Boiler Installations.

New Windows and Doors

Your front door works as a business card. It’s the eye of the property. So, it’s a quite good idea to give them a brand-new coat. Replacing or refurbishing doors and windows can bring light into the home and a new perspective for visitors. It’s also an investment in case you think about selling the property in the future.

On that note, locks for doors and windows should also be updated from time to time to ensure the security of your property. Make sure to test locks against various lock picking instruments to be safe. Home security is an important factor that buyers will prioritize when looking for a new home.

Create a Garden Bar

We all know that even with pubs and restaurants back to business in Britain, most people in the country are just not keen on gathering outside for a beer or two yet. We are just not prepared for it. So, why not recreate the pub environment with your garden Bar?

There is plenty of pubs shed ideas out there to make your summer more enjoyable without queuing for a pint or wearing face masks in a beer garden.

Stop Cluttering

I always find ways to improve the flow of my home. Small tweaks here and there can make the flat feel bigger than it is. However, spending more time cooped up inside made it easy to accumulate things from online shopping, care packages, and whatnot. One of the things that should be on the top of your list is decluttering your space.

Sort through your items and organise a bit – you’ll have more space for family and friends. When the pandemic is over, you are sure to have plenty of visitors. And if you live in a tourist hotspot like Brighton?

You are sure to have a ton of overnight guests who miss the beach. It would be smart to look into unique solutions. Find a storage unit in Brighton to hold all your non-essential items. When you put all the items you don’t use anymore in your unit – you might be able to accommodate family members more comfortably.

Keeping the house uncluttered during the lockdown will mean having more space to receive friends and family after it all is over. Start it now!
