Get your home ready for Summer

Get your home ready for Summer

With the temperatures rising and the days getting longer, there’s no better time to get your home ready for the start of summer.

So here are our top tips for preparing your home for summer…

Lighter, brighter interiors

Lighter brighter interiors will help you to wave goodbye to winter, and welcome the summer with open arms. But that doesn’t mean you need to totally redecorate your home. It’s easy to update your space with lighter, brighter accessories! Cut out anything that adds a feeling of heat, such as fire logs, heavy rugs, and thick blankets, and replace them with freshly cut flowers, light mats, and brightly coloured throws.

Defrost your freezer

Summer is the season of ice cream, ice pops, and ice cubes galore! So, as we head into the warmer season, make sure your freezer is fully prepared to keep you cool, calm, and collected all summer long.
Start by empting your freezer and defrosting it fully, melting away any ice that has built up. It’s also a great time to throw away anything that’s been there for a year or more – creating plenty of extra space for summer treats!

Switch up your wardrobe

With warmer weather on the way, it’s time to switch up your wardrobe and ensure that your summer clothes, shoes, and accessories are easily to hand. If your space is limited, you might want to pack away your heavy winter clothes into storage.

If you notice that your current wardrobe simply won’t cut it anymore, why not invest in some bespoke, built in wardrobes? Designed with your requirements in mind, this stylish storage solution will help you to keep your wardrobe organised and accessible all year round. Here at Kenneth Installations, our skilled and experienced team is perfectly placed to install built in wardrobes that will transform your room.

Freshen up your guestroom

Summer is the season of entertaining, so it’s important to ensure that your guest room is ready to accommodate family and friends. Open the doors and windows to let in some fresh air, give the room a thorough clean, and fluff up the pillows. If the décor is starting to look a bit tired, this is also a great time to update it with a fresh lick of paint or some new furniture.

Air Conditioning

If your home gets hot and stuffy during the summer months, you might want to consider integrating an air conditioning system into your home. And there’s no better time to do it than now, before summer properly arrives.

Be BBQ ready

Firing up the BBQ is an essential part of the summer social calendar. So make sure your garden or yard is fully equipped to host your summer gatherings and outdoor parties.


Spring is the perfect time to tackle those DIY projects or home improvement jobs that you’ve been putting off during the cold winter months – whether it’s updating the colour scheme in your lounge, re-tiling the bathroom, or a installing a completely new kitchen. Here at Kenneth Installations, Glasgow, we can install high quality, high performance bathrooms and kitchens in line with your specific requirements.
