Now we’re well into January, it’s time to get started on all those renovation plans you thought up during Christmas. Although you may be eager to get stuck in, planning ahead is essential when it comes to home renovation projects, no matter how big or small they may be.
So, we’re here to help you plan your year of redesigns, re-tiles, and complete renovations in this handy guide. Come with us as we guide you through the seasons, detailing which projects work best when started in spring, summer, autumn, and winter. And, of course, as always, we’ll provide our Roccia top tips and expert advice to ensure you get the best outcome in all your projects.
Spring is a season that symbolises new beginnings and fresh starts, making it an ideal time of year to make a change in your home and inject some new life into your surroundings. In addition, it’s a time when we yearn for the summer sun and long days and spending time outdoors, which is why getting started on outdoor projects is perfect for this time of year.
Although when living in Britain, the weather can be miserable at best, we hope that during spring, the rain, wind, and freezing temperatures ease off for a few months. Because of this, we can get outdoors and begin our garden projects ready for summer. Start by looking into outdoor paving trends to transform your garden, and from there, decide which outdoor tiles will look best in your space. We have plenty of options available here at Roccia, such as:
We can help you design your garden’s new look with our tiles, whatever it is you’re looking for. For example, they can help you section off areas in your garden for dining or create a path to your summer house. The options are endless, no matter your garden goals, so get started during spring to ensure you have your perfect outdoor space for summer.
Since you have spent spring perfecting your garden, what better time to utilise your new space? Summer is a time for BBQs, garden picnics, and outdoor dinner parties, meaning it is also the ideal time for kitchen renovations. After all, if you’ve made your garden the ideal place for dining, it makes perfect sense to make the most out of it and perfect your indoor kitchen in time for autumn and winter.
When it comes to redesigning this area of your home, it’s best to visit our kitchen showroom in Preston, as it is the hub of all our luxury kitchen brands, and our friendly and knowledgeable staff are on hand to advise. We don’t do things in halves here at Roccia; we can design, manufacture, and install your brand-new kitchen during summer, so you have your brand-new space ready to cook up a storm in the colder months. Many people use June to August to renovate their kitchen, which gives them a buffer to ensure it’s ready for the all-important festive season.
Christmas last year may have made you realise your kitchen isn’t being utilised as best as it could. For example, you may not have enough worktop space, or you may find that your fridge would work better on the other side of the room. Well, with the help of our kitchen design team, we can ensure that you get the best out of your space and by next Christmas, you have a functioning, aesthetically pleasing room that ties in beautifully with the rest of your home.
By September, October, and November, your garden and kitchen renovations should be complete, giving you plenty of time to work on the inside of your home while the temperature drops and the nights draw in faster. Autumn design trends are a great place to gather inspiration for your home. They are often centred around being cosy and providing a welcoming and snug feeling to your space through their warm colour palettes and hints of nature.
As well as the gorgeous design inspiration that autumn brings, it also graces us with the perfect opportunity for tiling. It’s not too cold or hot, making it the ideal climate to tile in. You may wish to renovate your bathroom during autumn and install new tiles to give the room a brand-new look. We have plenty of styles to choose from, such as our glamorous Versace tiles, which give any space they’re installed a touch of classic luxury. Many of their designs also incorporate an autumnal feel, with deep browns and warm golds providing comfort and glamour rolled into one.
By the time winter arrives, most of your home renovations should be complete, and you’re probably walking around just admiring the changes you’ve made over the past 12 months. However, there’s still some work to do, and winter is the perfect time to do several small jobs throughout your home.
For rooms that didn’t need a complete renovation, such as the bedroom, for example, this is a great opportunity to do some touch-ups. Perhaps the paint needs a little refresh, or the grout on your floor tiles needs a deep clean? Whatever it is, you’re sure to have plenty of minor jobs to be getting on with on those cold rainy days.
Here at Roccia, we have all the puzzle pieces you need to complete a full home renovation this year. Whether you’re cleaning your tiles during winter, renovating your bathroom in autumn, remodelling your kitchen in summer, or gutting the garden in spring.
