Home improvement inspiration for a family home
Your home is the hub of where everything happens. From the rush of the breakfast routine to relaxing with a family film on an evening, you’ll want everyone to feel comfortable in the space you live in.
Whether you’ve moved into a new house and want to make it feel like home or if you simply want to add some improvements, here are some big and small changes you could make:
Swap curtains for shutter blinds
If you have small children in your family, you’ll already be well aware of the dangers of long curtains or blinds with cords on them. Children can swing from them, tug them down or get tangled in the cords…
For peace of mind, make the change to window shutters – many of these clip directly onto the window frame so you can pull them up or down and open or close them with ease, without any dangerous cords to worry about. Plus, they’re a sleek and stylish addition that can transform any room, whilst still maintaining your privacy.
Add a Juliette balcony
In a small home, getting some air through it is a good way to stop it from ever feeling too stuffy. If it’s an option, you could add a Juliette balcony to your living room. Not only will it open up the room by introducing more daylight, it’s also ideal so you can let the breeze in on a summer’s day.
Obviously, this is a big job that you may need to ask the experts to help with, but you can have your own say by choosing your materials from Barrier Components, for a balcony that’s perfect for your family!
Upgrade your shower
Upgrading to a power shower can make a huge difference in a family home. If you just have one bathroom, morning queues can be an ongoing problem, which makes a quick shower par for the course.
We all know that there’s nothing more frustrating and unfulfilling than a weak shower, so you won’t regret installing a good model – helping you and your family to get the day started the right way!
Transform your garden
Your garden is a space that the entire family can enjoy, particularly in the summer months, so a well-maintained outdoor space can bring you all closer together. You can get out the BBQ on the decking whilst the kids play in the paddling pool or kick around a football on the lawn.
If you’ve got green fingers, you can even involve your kids in planting a vegetable patch. This has plenty of benefits, like teaching them about responsibility, as well as getting them excited about eating healthy, homegrown food.
Make your house somewhere you and your family can call home by making a few improvements and changes. These can make a difference to your daily routine, ultimately helping you all in leading happier and healthier lives!
