Get the most out of your home this Spring
Although it's still chilly out, Spring is just around the corner and now is the perfect time to start getting your home ready. Here are a few helpful ideas to make sure you get maximum enjoyment out of your home when the warmer months do roll around.
The key to making the most of your home in the Spring and Summer is to think about what you enjoy doing and make sure you have the means to do it. Some people like lounging around in the garden while others prefer to read a good book by an open window. Some people like to have friends round for coffee in the conservatory and some like to be out of the patio playing with the kids. Whatever your preference the best way to start is by getting yourself organised.
It's a good idea to have a bit of a de-clutter and to put all your wintery things away and put all your summery items within easy reach. That way, when the sun comes out, you'll be able to grab your tartan rug and plastic plates and enjoy a picnic lunch in the garden at a moment's notice. You could even create a little storage station for the kids next to the back door with shoes, toys and games, sun tan lotion and other bits and bobs that they will need for playing outdoors.
Dress your home
You could also think about how to make your interior feel lighter and brighter to match the Spring mood. For example, dialling back your soft furnishings to maximise natural light. Put blankets, rugs and throws into storage ready for Autumn. You could even think about putting your heavy curtains into storage and swapping them for voile panels to give your interior a light, airy feeling. Fresh flowers are also a great way to brighten up your home, adding a splash of colour as well as the scent of Spring.
Let fresh air in
One of the best things about Spring is being able to open up your windows and doors and let fresh air breeze through your interior to get rid of the winter dust and dinge. Phantom fly screens are designed to help you achieve this as the retractable mesh lets fresh air in whilst protecting against insects and glare from the sun. The screens give you an unobstructed view to the outside and can also be fitted with pollen mesh if you suffer from hayfever.
Enjoy outdoor living
For that extra special addition to your home this Spring, you could consider creating an outdoor space with Phantom's Executive power screens. Adding Executive screens to a porch, patio or other external structure can create exterior spaces that let you enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of the outdoors whilst protecting against insects and glare from the sun; the perfect place to enjoy a BBQ or an evening drink with friends. The screens will also keep out garden refuse like leaves and grass cuttings and will even protect against light rain showers so you can use your outdoor space even if the weather is a little changeable.
