It’s coming to that time of year when spring is in the air…well sort of. The blossoms are on the tree’s at least and we have had the odd reminder of what the sun looks and feels like after the devastation of the heavy duty rains back in February. For many of us, the floods of 2014 ravaged homes and lives for a long time to come, but spring offers a fresh hope to turn around a sorry situation and get something wonderful to grow out of the ruins.
With Spring comes Easter, and aside from the chocolate binges we all seem to succumbe too every year around April, Easter is the perfect time to think about resurrecting your home from the ashes of winter. It’s time to dust off your tools, get down your local hardware store for some paint to brighten up the hallway and stock up bin liners to empty the unused, the unwanted and the forgotten items of your life into.
The long bank holidays provide the perfect opportunity to smarten up your home and while you are at it, consider sorting out a few of your fixtures and fittings! Update your tired looking ceiling lights, install a few smart garden lights so you can enjoy the summer evenings as the nights draw out and warm up, or even get some modern indoor display lighting fitted to give your home a whole new look.
They say the kitchen is the heart of any home, so if you are feeling really adventurous this holiday, why not treat yourself to a new cooker and oven? With it freshly and professionally installed you can get the whole family round to enjoy Easter cakes cooked by your own fair hands! What a great way to celebrate this time of year.
But aside from the fun aspects of getting your home spick-and-span for the year ahead, the safety elements should not be ignored at the expense of the aesthetics. Whether your home needs rewiring, a fuse box replacement, a fault found and sorted out or some safety testing, then now is the perfect time to get it sorted. Even if you are a complete electrical novice, it takes no effort on your part to ensure your, or your family’s, safety with a quick no nonsense, no obligation check of the home by the pro’s. A good rule of thumb? If your system keeps shorting or electrical items blow regularly then chances are something needs looking at!
And with all these little niggley things done and dusted, your home will be safe and sound and looking great – ready, not just for the Easter weekend, but for the whole year ahead meaning you can sit back with a clear conscience and a fresh outlook!
