How To Bring The Feeling Of Summer Right Into Your Home

3 ways of bringing summer into your home


The great weather that we have experienced recently has been a very long time coming, and we hope that it stays with us for the duration of the summer – we all deserve it!

Get outside as often as you can and enjoy it, as you never know when it will disappear, and even when you’re inside at home, you should still be able to embrace the summer. 

Having the feeling of summer indoors will make you jump out of bed in the mornings and fill you with positivity. Exposure to natural light is also essential for mental health. 

How can you offer the sun an easy route indoors? Quite easily, as it happens:

Clean your windows

Just imagine how dark our homes would be without any windows! You want to keep your windows spotlessly clean so that the sun can travel through them all and light up any darker spots in the house. 

To prevent any light blockage caused by your curtains when they’re open, due to them being on the thick side, remove them for summer and replace them with some thinner, lighter curtains. 

Do your current windows transport too much heat in? What you need is the installation of energy efficient windows to stop the house burning up.

Install bi-folding doors

Wanting to add more light than just offered by your windows? You could have bi-folding doors fitted into a rear wall, a door that can contain as many as 7 sections.

Each of the sections predominantly consist of glass as the aluminium framework in a bi-fold is unbelievably slender and virtually goes unnoticed. This also ensures you of a wonderful garden view.

With the opening of a bi-fold, it will bring in lots of fresh air too, which is ideal on those extremely hot days. All sorts of openings can be created.

Add some nature

People have a new-found love of nature now and this has led to a massive surge in homeowners buying houseplants, which were particularly popular back in the 80’s. 

There are lots of different types of houseplant, and most are opting for succulents, ferns and orchids, which you can put on show on countertops, floors and tables. They’re a great thing to add if you don’t have a garden. 

You might not know that houseplants are good for your health. Yes, they remove air pollutants, making indoor air cleaner, and that, in turn, is known to minimise stress and boost your mood.
