Giving Your Home A Summer Makeover

May 16, 2018

Summer is just around the corner. Although we may not be blessed with the best weather in the UK, there is no denying that we have already enjoyed some glorious sunshine so far this year. To ensure you make the most of the warmer months and that your home is comfortable during the summer months, read on to discover some tips to follow.  

Switch to light and thin fabrics

There is only one place to begin, and this is by getting rid of your big and bulky fabrics and opting for lighter materials instead. Of course, you do not need to chuck away your heavy fabrics – simply store them until winter returns. You can get online curtain fabrics and bedding, which will give your home that light and airy feel you are looking to achieve without breaking the bank. Choose light colours to enhance the summer vibe.

Make your patio your favourite room

As soon as the sun comes out, we rush to plan barbecues with our friends and family members. You need to ensure that your patio is ready for this. Give it the same sort of attention your living room gets during the winter months. Make sure it is clean and comfortable. You can easily add some of your interior comforts outdoors with cushions and rugs. Needless to say, you should not spend a lot of money on things like this. There are also plenty of other ways to give your garden that delightful summer touch. For example, plant flowers that smell nice at night, like jasmine, and build a herb wall so you can wow your guests with delicious food and cocktails.

Switch up your colour palette

One of the easiest and most effective ways to get your home ready for the summer is by painting it. There are lots of different colour palettes that look amazing during the summer. Of course, neutrals look fantastic, creating that Mediterranean and airy vibe. However, if you want to add some colour to your home, think pastels and ice cream shades.

Add some flowers

Last but not least, nothing quite says summer like lots of colourful blooms. There are so many reasons why you should consider having a plant in each room. The most obvious reason is that they look beautiful. However, they can also boost airflow, which is especially important during the summer. Houseplants help you to create a more comfortable and healthy environment throughout the home.

As you can see, there are a number of different ways you can improve your home for the summer months. These suggestions will give your home the perfect summer vibe while also ensuring you feel comfortable during the warmest days.
