Top 3 Home Improvement Projects for Summer 2013

Monday, June 03rd , 2013

As summer approaches, you must be thinking of how to make some improvements at home to blend with the season. With that in mind, we at Bygone Collection are here to provide you with 3 great ideas to make your home comfortable and safe for the summer:

1. Update the Windows

If you have old-fashioned, single-glazed windows, consider replacing them. Energy-efficient windows play a major role in lowering your heating and cooling costs during winter and summer respectively.

Bygone’s sliding and double-glazed windows are of high-quality and are designed to ensure your windows not only look beautiful and elegant, but also comply with energy efficiency requirements. In addition to this, their thick panes provide you with high-quality sound insulation at all times.

Apart from providing you with high-quality energy efficient windows, we also have very committed, highly-trained and professional window installers to help you in the installation process. Our installers will not leave your premises until they ensure your windows are installed and finished to your satisfaction.

2. Upgrade Your Kitchen and Bathroom

Your kitchen and bathroom should be some of the most comfortable rooms in your house during summer. That’s why you need to inspect and refurnish them as early as possible to avoid unnecessary inconveniences and frustrations. Consider replacing old faucets, sinks, and benchtops with new ones.

Make sure you equip your kitchen with vital summer-friendly appliances such as slow cookers, soda streams, bread makers, blenders, mixers, and water filters.

For your bathroom, replace the outdated tiles with new and colourful ones. Provide it with a new shower head, bath tub, and toilet pan. Get rid of any visible moulds from the walls and invest in light bulbs or tubes which you can hang over the bath tab, the shower area, and near the mirror.

3. Spruce Up Your Backyard

Apart from being a good place to relax, your back garden can also be the perfect place to entertain family and friends during the summer months. Be sure to prune bushes and trees that have overgrown in the last few months, clear up all fallen leaves and mow the grass. Additionally, set up a shade spot and equip it with your favourite pieces of furniture. For that extra special something, install a solar-powered fountain to provide you with soothing sound of water as you relax.
