With the change of the seasons, so comes a change of the décor… Summer means lighter, brighter homes as we welcome the sunshine and get into the relaxed, breezy style of the season. Darker colours and heavy fabrics are replaced by lighter or brighter colours and decorations.

While a complete home overhaul is far too expensive and time-consuming, there are a few small, simple style changes you can easily make to add a little summer flavour to your home. If you do have some money available, now might be the perfect time to get the new, sleek kitchen you’ve always wanted. Book a free consultation at your nearest Optiplan showroom now and come in for a hat to see how our amazing designers can help create and bring to life your dream kitchen, just in time for all the summer hosting you’re about to do.

Here are few simple style changes to inject that summer feeling into your home:

Bring out the summer crockery

Add a pop of colour to your kitchen and dining table by investing in some bright, patterned bowls and plates; perfect for entertaining in the summer months, they’ll add a summery feel to your meal and make your presentation look beautiful. It will also make for a particularly lovely BBQ outside surrounded by the greenery and sunshine.

 

Add pops of colour

As well as in the crockery, add a few splashes of vibrant colour throughout your home in various forms. Replace your cushion covers with pretty patterned covers, add a colourful rug or two, and hang up some exciting, energetic art or posters. Replace any dark, droll, comforting décor with a lighter, fresher replacement to help keep in line with the summer feel and make sure your home is light and airy.

 

Change to summer fabrics

Inject some fun and vibrancy into your home by replacing dark, winter fabrics with something lighter and brighter. Change your cushion covers in your living area and invest in some lighter slip covers for chairs and sofas. Swap out the fluffy blankets and muted duvet covers for white or patterned covers and a few colourful cushions.

 

Switch curtains for drapery

Replace heavier curtains with light and airy drapery to give your windows a classic, whimsical feeling. If you’re really ready to welcome the sunshine, then consider using gossamer drapes on your windows for minimum coverage and maximum natural light flooding your home – this will definitely ensure you’re up in time for work as well!

 

Bring the outdoors inside

There is nothing more summery than bringing the outdoors inside with of loads of greenery. Make your home feel luscious and tropical by placing different plants around the rooms. Get inventive and hang them from the ceiling or make a glass terrarium.

 

Follow these simple style changes, and your home will be feeling summery in no time.
