When it comes to home improvements, knowing the best time to get started can be difficult. Although you may feel as though there is no right time work on your home, Summer definitely has it’s benefits.
Whether you’re new to home improvements or a seasoned pro, here are five reasons saving your projects until the summer is a great idea:
The Nights Are Much Lighter And The Days Are Longer
One of the best things about carrying out all of your home improvements is that the nights are much lighter and the days are longer. Although this may not feel like it makes much, it can benefit in a number of different ways.
First of all, the lighter nights give you much longer to work as it’s brighter. Although you can use your lighting indoors, nothing beats natural lighting for those fiddly jobs.
Secondly, with the sun staying up until at least 8 pm, chances are you’re going to feel a lot tired than you would if it were to set at 4 pm. It’s psychological, but it works.
The Weather Is Better
Although the better weather may make you feel as though you want to sit in the garden drinking Aperol Spritz all weekend, it’s actually the perfect excuse to get some housework done.
With the weather being much drier, you have the opportunity to bring your furniture and belongings outside whilst you work on the house. If you need to build furniture, chances are it will be easier to build it in the garden and bring it inside. Another thing to consider is if you’re upgrading your windows or replacing uPVC double glazing, there will be minimal disruption to your home during the summer.

There Is More Chance Of Buying Products On Clearance And Booking Contractors
As most people will be carrying out their home improvements during the summer, stores and contractors are going to take advantage of this when it comes to offers. The best time to invest in DIY products is on the August Bank Holiday weekend, as there are always sales.
It’s Easier To Get Time Off Work
Although you may feel as though getting time off in summer is hard, it’s actually much easier than you’d think. With lots of businesses winding own for the summer break, companies are likely to be much more lenient when it comes to having time off. Whether you want to book a long weekend or a week of home improvements, it’s always worth asking!
Naturally, You’ll Be In A Better Mood
Summer can definitely bring out the best in everyone! With home improvements being an incredibly stressful process, a little extra joy can go a long way.
Put on some summer anthems, crack out the prosecco and get to work!
