Summertime is a great season—filled with barbecues, pool parties, block parties, and other social events held in residential homes all over the country. It is also during this time of year when your distant relatives come to visit your family for an extended visit, or when neighbors, friends, and co-workers drop by for just an hour or two.
However, as much as you might love having summertime guests over, there’s usually some extra preparation necessary for getting your home in order before they arrive. In fact, many homeowners initiate home improvement projects during the summer vacation for this reason—at least in part.
If you’re rushing to get your home in order before your summer guests arrive this season, you’ve come to the right place! In this article, our expert team of remodelers at All Weather Seal of West Michigan will share with you the best tips to get your house ready for an amazing summer of entertaining in your home.
Do a General Cleaning of Your Home
The most basic thing that you can do to prepare your home for guests is to clean it. Take the time to do general cleaning and remove all clutter. Don’t forget about the bathroom and make sure that it is squeaky clean and is stocked with important toiletries and supplies. Your guest room should also be ready with fresh sheets whether or not the guests plan to sleep overnight—you’ll never know when the sudden need to stay the night arises.
Get a New Patio Door
A beautiful patio will surely wow your guests. If you have the budget, it is also recommended to get a new patio door that will perfectly give the right transition between your indoor and outdoor space. If you’re going to get a patio door replacement, make sure to choose one that is not only visually appealing but is also energy efficient and weather-tight fit. Reliable home remodeling companies can offer a wide range of sizes and styles that will suit your needs for your patio door.
Consider Refacing Your Old Cabinets
Sometimes, you don’t really have to avail expensive or major home improvement services to make your home look more presentable. A simple, durable cabinet refacing may be enough to boost the look of your kitchen if the overall status of your kitchen or your home, in general, is still good.
By replacing the cabinets’ hinges and handles and applying a new “skin” over the existing surface of the body, you will be able to achieve the new look that you want.
Open Up Your Home With New Windows
If you’ve been living in your home for many years, it’s likely that your windows are already showing signs of natural wear and tear. As you prepare your home for guests, it might also be an ideal time to have your windows replaced.
Window replacement can transform the way your home looks, feels, and can even improve the air quality inside your home—especially if your current window installations are hard to open and close. Consider replacing simple window products like single-pane, single-hung windows with beautiful bay windows, garden windows, double-hung windows, hopper windows, or awning windows for a stylish upgrade.
Do Some Gardening
Summer is a good time to tend to your garden. If the kids are old enough, you can ask them to help mow the grass and take care of the plants while they’re home from school. Because it also contributes to the overall curb appeal of your property, taking the time to revamp your garden can also be considered as an effective way to prepare your home for guests.
