6 Essentials for Your Home This Summer

When the warm air begins to creep through the windows and doors, we know it’s time to make some small changes around the house. The winter duvets are replaced with sheets. Vases are filled with fresh flowers from the garden.

When summer arrives, our home gets its very own makeover. If you want to spruce your home up for the warmer months, here are some essentials you have to invest in.

1. Lighter Curtains

If you’ve never swapped your drapes based on the seasons, then you’re missing out. Those with thicker curtains are stifling much of the sunlight. Not to mention trapping lots of warm air. When summer gets here, it’s time to opt for lighter curtains. You can get cotton drapes that are almost see-through. Letting the light in, well into the evening. Your home will feel brighter and airier, with this little change.


2. Greenery

Now is the time to bring the outside in! If you have any potted plants in the garden, consider bringing them into the home. As long as you leave them in an area filled with sunlight, they’ll continue to grow beautifully. You can also invest in specific houseplants if you’d prefer. By bringing greenery into your home, it feels far more summery. Plants are also useful to brighten the mood, in general.

3. Neutral Colours

Dark and deep colours should be reserved for those cosy winter nights. Now that it’s summer, you need to think about creating more light and space. Neutral colours around your home should do the trick. You don’t need to paint the entire house cream to achieve this effect. Just swap out those maroon cushions for something lighter.

4. Air Conditioner

If you leave in a humid area, then chances are you’ll really feel the heat about now. Air conditioning is a great way to keep your home cool, without leaving all of the doors and windows open. Some people worry that they look unpleasant in the home. However, there are lots of different ways you can cover the units up. Or even disguise them as something else!


5. A Pool

If you’ve got the space and spare cash, then why not?! A swimming pool makes an incredible addition to any home. It can also increase the value of your property far more than what you initially pay out. Imagine a relaxing dip in the pool, as the temperatures rise? It sounds absolutely perfect to us.

6. Garden Furniture

If you don’t have the space or budget for a pool, consider simply revamping the backyard instead. Just adding a few garden furniture pieces can make it feel more appealing. It may even become the kind of garden you want to host parties in. Everyone loves a garden party in the summer.

Have you got all of these essentials for your home already? If not, you’ve got a month or two left of sunny weather. Make the most of it and ensure your house is summer ready. If you’ve run out of time, there is always next year!
