#stayathome to protect the NHS — plan your home improvements

Over the last few weeks, we’ve all spent a lot more time at home. Across the UK, millions of people are now working from their kitchens, living rooms, dining rooms, and bedrooms in an effort to limit social contact and stop the spread of COVID-19.

As we’re all spending more time in the house, now is a great opportunity to start planning your home improvements. While you can’t get started on any projects just yet, putting some serious thought into how you can improve your living space will ensure you’re ready to get cracking when the time is right.

Getting out in the garden

Gardening is one thing you can crack on with during lockdown. There’s no limit to the amount of time you’re allowed to spend out in your garden, making this the perfect opportunity to spruce up your outside space.

As @GWmag says, “We can sow seeds or plant seedlings now and watch them develop and bloom over the coming weeks and months.”

Start by giving your garden a good weed and a bit of a tidy. Once you’ve got everything in order, you can start planning your new beds, creating seating areas and really adding style to the space.

Moreover, you can buy flower and veg seeds online, allowing you to transform your garden and create the outdoor haven you really need.

 Plan your conservatory

If you’ve been thinking about adding a conservatory to your home, now is a great time to start planning your build. Spend your new-found free time looking for online inspiration and finding the styles and features that best suit your property.

When planning a new conservatory, it’s essential to think about how you’re going to use the space. This will dictate how big the space needs to be and what type of furniture and finish you’re going to go for.

Have a clear out

Now is also a good time for a thorough clear out. Getting rid of clutter can free up much-needed storage space and make your home feel lighter, brighter and more spacious. What’s more, you don’t need any supplies for a clear out, so won’t need to go to the shops before getting started.

Try to work room by room. This will help you to keep your home in some sort of order and stop you from feeling overwhelmed. While you’re clearing, take the opportunity to give your home a deep clean and think about other ways you can improve and enhance the space.
