For most of us, a bank holiday means three days off work to do whatever makes you happy. It is a chance to enjoy a long weekend during the final few days of August and make the most of some quality time at home.

Whether you’re planning to catch up with friends, spend precious moments with family, or tick off a few jobs on your ‘to do’ list, it is time to start planning your bank holiday weekend wisely.

Home is where the heart is

This bank holiday in August is the last three-day weekend you’ll get before Christmas, and the cooler weather arrives in the UK, so let’s make the most of it.

If you’re planning to complete some tasks around the house, three days is a good stretch to really accomplish a task – and feel great afterwards.

There’s still time to consult your palette of paints and give a room a new, lighter and brighter look, but if you haven’t got time to repaint, why not change your soft furnishings instead. Items like cushions, curtains, throws and lanterns can add a completely new look and unique style to a stunning glazed extension.

Make the most of your bifold and sliding doors

If you have bifold doors or sliding doors, why not open up your home and enjoy the garden this August. Get outside and give your garden some late summer love before the Autumn months arrive and the nights start to draw in.

Large open spaces, that widespan doors create, mean you can really get inspired and give your property the stylish look it deserves, internally and externally. Installing bifold doors or sliding doors means you can easily open up an area for that stunning inside-outside connection.

It’s still summer, and for most of us, that means only one thing – barbeque time.

Wow your guest this August bank holiday by inviting them round for a bite to eat. From a full-on feast in the evening to a simple lunchtime snack, lighting the BBQ is the perfect way to celebrate the long weekend and spend time with people who mean the most to you.

Bifold doors are a superb way to bring the outdoors in, helping exterior space function as an additional room that flows off the interior.

If the sun is shining, set the garden up for some alfresco dining and weekend cocktails – but don’t despair if the weather doesn’t hold.

If you’ve got sliding doors, a sleek and impressive alternative to bifold doors, you can simply relocate inside and still enjoy the same sense of space that this type of glazing promotes.

It’s a fact that recharging your batteries and spending a few hours doing what you want makes you happy. In today’s busy world, it’s hard to always find time for yourself so sit back, relax and make the most of the long bank holiday weekend.

Planning a project

If you’ve enjoyed having the extra living space in the garden this summer and you’ll be sad to retreat indoors, why not start planning a glazing extension so you can get more space all year round.

Consult an architect and they’ll tell you that the first thing to consider when building a house is to create a light, bright space. Give yourself time to think seriously about the look you want to achieve.

Perhaps you would like to have a rooflight installed to give the kitchen extra light in your glazed extension? Perhaps, you’re considering bifold doors or sliding doors as a standout feature in your home?

Rooflights are a phenomenal way to let the sunlight shine down directly into your living space. Not only do they add extra light, they create an increased sense of open space.

Bifold doors fold away to reveal a completely open space, while sliding doors offer panoramic views through the sleek walls of glass.
