As we hit the summer months, everyone is hoping for weather to be warm and sunny. The BBQs are out and the beer gardens are open – England is ready, so bring on the summer!
The news stories and reports are already claiming a heat wave is on the way, as the Met Office predicts a 25% chance that this year will be the hottest summer on record. And large areas of the UK have already reported sunny spells and rising temperatures.
Living in England, decent weather is something that we appreciate. It certainly doesn’t happen all the time, so those days when the sun is beating down are to be enjoyed and savoured.
Whether you are traveling away for a taste of something exotic, or staying a little closer to home, make sure that you make the most out of this year’s summer.
Sun is shining
Most people love it when the sun is out, it just puts everyone in a fantastic mood. The heat on your face, the warm summer air – just don’t forget your sun cream!
The weather may be wonderful, and makes everyone very social, but one aspect of summer that is not so fun is the long lasting damage it can do to furniture. The sun itself can strip and ruin your antiques within a few days.
Anything placed by a window, especially a south facing one or in a conservatory, will be affected by the sun. A whole host of materials can be irreparably damaged, and it can end up costing you a lot of money.
We all love the sun, but sometimes there can be too much of a good thing. Don’t ruin your lovely furniture by leaving it too close to a window on a sunny day, or take steps to prevent it with some bespoke window blinds.
Raising the temperatures
Throughout the more mellow months of the year, your conservatory is the gateway between you and your backyard – it is somewhere dry you can sit and enjoy the garden during those spring and autumn showers.
However, once the sun is out and the temperatures start to rise, your conservatory can become a no go zone.
Anyone that has a south facing conservatory will know the familiar tale – you step inside and it’s like walking into a sauna. The heat can hit you in the face, and the stuffiness means that it is just unbearable to sit in for any length of time.
Unfortunately this means that many conservatories are abandoned for the key summer months, just desolate rooms that are used for storage. But it doesn’t have to be like that!
