Summer is the perfect time for you to relax, unwind, and rejuvenate. While going on vacation might be a tempting option, why not consider a staycation this year? Staycations allow you to enjoy the comforts of home while exploring new activities and taking care of long-overdue tasks. One exciting way to make the most of your staycation is by tackling handyman jobs around the house. In this blog, we will explore a variety of staycation handyman projects that can enhance your living space this Summer.
Revamp Your Outdoor Space:
Utilise your staycation to transform your outdoor area into a personal oasis. Start by cleaning and organising your patio or deck. Repair or replace any loose boards, and give it a fresh coat of paint or stain. Consider adding some comfortable outdoor furniture, potted plants, and string lights to create an inviting atmosphere.
Create an Outdoor Living Room
Transform your garden into an extension of your home by creating a dedicated outdoor living space. Install a patio or deck area with comfortable seating, tables, and outdoor rugs. This space can be used for al fresco dining, lounging with a good book, or hosting gatherings with friends and family. Add shade structures such as pergolas, umbrellas, or shade sails to provide relief from the sun on hot summer days.
Build an Outdoor Cinema
You can even go one step further by introducing an outdoor cinema to your garden. All you need is a good projector, a screen (or consider having something purpose built by Hire A Hubby!) and a laptop/DVD player or access to a streaming device (Google Chrome Cast, Amazon Fire TV Stick).
Paint and Refresh:
Nothing revitalises a space like a fresh coat of paint. Identify areas in your home that could use a touch-up or a complete colour transformation. Whether it’s a bedroom, living room, or kitchen, painting is a satisfying and rewarding project. If you require assistance, don’t hesitate to contact us. Hire A Hubby’s painting and decorating services include wall preparation, professional paint finishes and complete clean up afterwards. You’ll be amazed at the difference a fresh colour can make in transforming a room’s ambiance.
Declutter and Organise:
Clutter can affect both your physical and mental well-being. Take advantage of your staycation to declutter and organise your living spaces. Sort through your belongings, donate or sell items you no longer need, and find proper storage solutions for the things you want to keep. You can also tackle those messy closets, cabinets, or the notorious junk drawer that has been neglected for far too long. A clean and organised home can bring a sense of calm and make everyday life more enjoyable.
Fix and Repair:
Use your handyman skills to address those nagging repairs that have been on your to-do list for ages. Fix leaky taps, squeaky doors, loose handles, or wobbly furniture. Replace light bulbs, update outdated fixtures, or repair broken tiles. By attending to these small repairs, you’ll not only improve the functionality of your home but also prevent more significant issues down the line.
Upgrade Your Home Technology:
Upgrade your home’s technology and improve its efficiency during your staycation. Install smart devices such as new door locks and security cameras to make your home more convenient and secure. You can also set up a home automation system to control various aspects of your house remotely. Explore new gadgets and applications that can enhance your day-to-day living experience.
This summer, embrace the idea of a staycation and make it an opportunity to get those long-awaited handyman projects around your home done. From revamping your outdoor space to painting, decluttering, and repairing, there are plenty of staycation-friendly jobs you or your friendly Hire A Hubby handyman can complete for you.
