Tips on home renovations in summer

Many people think summer is not a good time to do a home makeover. However, this is not the case as this season offers a lot of benefits. So, if you are determined to carry out your home renovation during this time of the year, we recommend that you follow these top tips.

1. Plan the renovation project in advance

Believe it or not, many people resort to the services of companies that specialise in renovations during the months of July and August because these are the months they enjoy their holidays and, consequently, have more free time to oversee the works. This is why booking from February or March is most advisable.

2. Keep in touch with the company

You might think that by booking well in advance, unforeseen events may occur. It is best that, every so often, you make a phone call to the company showing some concern about the validity of the deadlines. It is always better to maintain contact than to wait until the day the works are about to begin.

3. Be careful about building permissions

Contrary to what happens with home renovation companies, public agencies responsible for the granting of building permits usually have quite a few people on holiday during the summer months. Therefore, as in the previous case, it is imperative that you request these documents in advance.

4. Prioritise the to-do list

It is inevitable for your home renovation project to be a bit chaotic. What's more, if you count the fact that you, your partner, and your children may be going on holiday, it is vital to maintain the highest possible degree of order to follow a more or less normal daily life.

5. Take advantage of summer trends

Generally, those who renovate their homes are usually inspired by the current trends. If you opt on doing the works in summer and love the bright colours, flowers and plants, do not hesitate to take advantage of the wide variety of options that you will find at your disposal in stores. After all, finding flowers or plants the rest of the year will be a lot more complicated.
