How To Make Your Home Feel More Spacious For Summer

How To Make Your Home Feel More Spacious For Summer

Space at home can be hard to come by at times if you have a large family living in an average-sized house.

It may come to a point where you think “enough is enough”.

You can consider doing one of two things – relocating to a larger property or growing your current home with a living space (conservatory, orangery or home extension).

You might not need to though, as you could well create the space you so desperately want with a few adjustments and additions.

Decluttering

We have a tendency to hoard items and rarely part ways with things we don’t need, or just fail to do a general decluttering of the house. You need to keep on top of this and it’s easily done when you tackle each room individually and do so with the help of others.

There will be things in your wardrobes, cupboards, and on your shelves and floors that can be donated to charity, recycled or thrown away.

Then, it’s a case of assessing how you can more efficiently store what you have left, which may mean making use of your walls to keep floors free or boxing stuff up and putting them out of the way.

Aluminium windows

Does the inside of your home receive enough natural light? Having light-coloured walls and plenty of reflective surfaces will aid with this.

Replacing old bulky windows with aluminium windows will also work a treat as an aluminium window profile is amazingly slim, giving you far more glass than you get in a traditional window design.

The larger the expanse of glass in your windows, the more the sunshine will travel in and illuminate your interior.

Large glazed door

Over the summer months, garden owners will more often than not, find themselves outside more than inside, particularly if they have some kind of sliding door positioned between their home and garden settings.

A patio or bi-folding door, when open, will brilliantly ventilate your home and also invite light indoors.

Our glazed doors, like our aluminium windows, also have trim frames. So they don’t need to be ajar to still be able to draw in natural light and make an interior feel deceivingly spacious.
