Home Improvement: The Best Way to Shake off those Summer Blues

August 24, 2012

Are you suffering from a severe case of the summertime blues? There is nothing like a good old fashioned dose of home improvement to get you feeling as good as new!
If our poor excuse of a summer has left you feeling glum then turn that frown upside down by making sure your house is as cosy as possible ready for the chilly autumn months.
Here at Nolan, we take great pride in making every home a happy one, so here are our five top tips on how to turn your house into a home to be proud of.


1. Double satisfaction, with double glazing

Replacing older windows with double glazing is the first step to achieving a quieter home. Double glazing has the power to reduce outdoor noise, as well as increase the security of your home. Upgrading your windows to double glazing will also make your house a lot more energy efficient, meaning you’ll be contributing to achieving a more eco-friendly community and saving some pennies when your heating bills hit the doormat.

2. Embrace your surroundings

With Wales famous for its glorious greenery, it’s only right that we enjoy the views our fair land has to offer. If you want to gain a greater view of your stunning surroundings or widen the view of your glorious garden then installing bi-folding doors is definitely the way to go! This will generate more natural light in your home and help make social events more exciting. A house party can easily turn into a garden party by simply sliding the doors open.


3. Offer a warm welcome
No matter the season, everyone has visitors now and then, so why not make their first impression a great one with a gorgeous entrance? Porches offer a classy addition to any home, and with various sizes and styles to choose from, they suit any house, whether traditional or modern. Together with offering more storage space, porches also help to retain heat, offering a warmer, cosier home during the winter months.

4. Gain Substantial Space
Most homes seem to have one problem… lack of space! If you’re looking for a way to make the kids happy, create some office space, or even provide a relaxation room for some peace and quiet, then a conservatory is definitely the best choice. They are one of the best ways to make your living area a little bigger without having to relocate. It’s the perfect solution for anyone who just needs a little more breathing space.

5. Be beautiful inside and out
Achieving the perfect home isn’t just about making it extra special on the inside; it’s also about making sure it looks spectacular from the outside! Touching up your roofline is a quick and simple way to give your home that extra-polished look. By adding new fascias and soffits to your roof, your house will get the fine finish that every homeowner desires. This will help make your home look fresh and new. There are also several other advantages to the installation of fascias and soffits, including the fact that they help to enhance the protection of your house from rotting, damp patches and infestations such as bird nesting.

Now we’ve shared our tips on how to transform your home, let us know your tried and tested ideas!
