With spring truly with us in Sydney, and summer just around the corner, now is the time to ensure that your house is ready for relaxed days at home, easy-going evenings, and if you’re an entertainer, ready to welcome friends and family over Christmas and the New Year.
It is usually the little things that need to be repaired or replaced to ensure that you can relax over the warmer months. Spring is the time to secure the right tradie to get these jobs done for the summer season.
The term “spring cleaning” implies we have ignored our homes for the better part of the year, however the overgrown garden ignored during winter is usually a big focus, as is general repairs and maintenance. With Sydney’s summer storm season on its way, most home projects at this time of year focus on clearing gutters, and ensuring your home is in good condition to weather these storms. For entertainers, oiling the deck, cleaning carpet and tidying the lawn and garden are projects to focus on.
Indoor and outdoor painting is often on the list. If you need some colour inspiration, Shaynna Blaze, writing for The Life Creative notes:
My tip this spring is to embrace crisp pastel tones that capture the change of the seasons and create a refreshing palette in the home. These trend colours will vary from soft pinks in peach and salmon hues, through to mint greens and deeper teals… They work best in combination with blonde oak furniture and flooring to accent the brightness of the hues and tone down the vivacity of the rest of vibrant spring palette hues.
Did you know by mid-November some tradies close their books? So get organised now to get the optimum results and you can sit back and enjoy the summertime with all your “to dos” done!
If you’re planning to go away and want all your jobs completed in your absence, we can work with you prior to departure to ascertain your brief and project manage your tasks whilst you are enjoying your annual holiday and organised bliss will make your return home all the more welcoming!
