Giving Your Home A Summer Makeover
After a cold winter and wet spring, summer is finally here with some warm weather. Therefore, it may be time to give your home the makeover it has been dreaming of. This is your chance to put away all of the winter accessories, thick blankets and cosy extras which are scattered around your home and swap them for things with a more summery feel. Your surroundings have the ability to impact you not only physically but also mentally. When you are happy with the things around you, you tend to feel more relaxed and welcome, therefore affecting you positively. Changing your home to transform the feeling can be quite costly, however, here at Simple Personal Loans, we can help. But before that, here are some ideas and tips for your exciting summer makeover.
Find Your Inspiration
When deciding what summer changes you’re going to make to your home you will need some kind of inspiration. Thankfully, there are hundreds of different online sources which can help you out. One of the most popular sites includes Pinterest, a social media platform where people can post images, videos and gifs. The site categorises the content into different sections. Therefore meaning that you will always have some sort of result whenever you search. Whether you take inspiration from online sites, magazines or even your own thoughts, it is always best to have an idea of what you’re searching for. Going into a shop with specific thoughts on objects, colours or designs will help you save plenty of money as well as keeping your home looking organised and arranged.
Create A Budget
Understanding your budget is one of the most important tasks when wanting to give your home a summer makeover. Spending when you feel like it can often lead to money shortages or even debts. Therefore, we advise that you carefully award yourself a specific amount of money that you’re prepared to spend this summer. If you are struggling with your budget and the amount you have to spend, why don’t you try activities like selling winter items or finding an extra income source? This way, you will be able to make more changes but also save a little more money too. Here at Simple Personal Loans, we offer loans to those looking to make bigger improvements like a new bedroom, kitchen or conservatory.

Luckily, when purchasing from most shops, online or in-store they will have a returns policy (check when completing). This gives you the opportunity to make a purchase and see if it suits your home. If it doesn’t, you then have roughly 28 days to return the item, but, this may have increased due to covid-19 depending on the shop. A returns policy gives us the chance to experiment instead of just guessing whether or not the item would match. Therefore, allowing us to buy and return as we please until we find the perfect accessory for the summer makeover.
Home improvements are exciting for everybody, but, we sometimes tend to spend money that we do not necessarily have. Therefore, before making any purchases we advise that you thoroughly consider all of the financial outcomes before making any decisions.
