How To Make A House Feel Roomier For The Summer Months

How To Make A House Feel Roomier For The Summer Months

Do you recall how spacious your home felt when you first moved into it? Nowadays, it might be a totally different story, particularly if you have since added to your family.

If this is starting to cause you headaches, you don’t necessarily need to move somewhere bigger or have a conservatory, orangery or home extension installed to grow your current home’s footprint.

No. You can often reinstate space with some rearranging and clever additions.

Declutter

It can seem like such a chore, but decluttering should be a part of your regular cleaning routine and needs to be kept on top of. Make it a speedy job by asking other family members to help, and designate a room to each person.

Floors need to be freed up, and the same goes for your wardrobes and cupboards, with unneeded items passed on to the local charity shop, rubbished or recycled.

Decluttering duties done, then evaluate how you can more efficiently store what’s left over. Using your walls could be an option.

Aluminium windows

It’s imperative that you get lots of light coming in and it will bounce around nicely off light-coloured walls and any reflective surfaces.

You’re very reliant on your windows for this and aluminium windows are worth upgrading to as they have unbelievably narrow frames, giving you far more glass than you normally get in a window.

The large glazed surface area will provide the sun with a bigger invitation to make its way through to your interior.

Large glazed door

The summer sun is best enjoyed outside in the garden and you’ll be encouraged to do that if you have a bi-folding door or some kind of sliding door fitted.

Both can be opened effortlessly and the opening they offer will allow the sun to find its way indoors, as well as cool your living quarters on a hot day.

Left in a closed position, a predominantly glazed sliding door will continue to offer superb light transference.
