Light and Airy Colour Schemes
Incorporating light and airy colour schemes into your home is an excellent way to create a refreshing and serene atmosphere, particularly during summer. Choosing the right colours and implementing them strategically can transform your space into a cool and inviting oasis.
One of the best areas to implement these light and airy themes is your flooring, specifically your floor tiles. For example, choosing light-coloured tiles will brighten up your space by maximising the light’s presence and making the room feel brighter throughout the day.
Pictured above are our Amazon tiles, ideal for living areas to help bring complementary shades to your light and airy colour palette. These earthy tones create a harmonious balance, evoke a sense of calmness and serenity, and help brighten your room.
Natural and Organic Elements
Bringing in natural and organic elements during the summer is a wonderful way to create a fresh and rejuvenating atmosphere in your home. For instance, we recommend incorporating plants and flowers to add a vibrant and organic element. Choose plants that thrive indoors and require minimal maintenance, such as succulents, ferns, or peace lilies. Arrange them in attractive pots or hanging planters and place them near windows or in areas where they can catch natural light. This is an excellent idea for summer, but remember to choose plants that thrive all year round to ensure your home stays inviting and full of life throughout the year.
Incorporating wood into your living space is another great way to bring in natural and organic elements. This can be done through small details and décor features, but if you’re looking to really transform your space, we recommend wood effect tiles.
Unlike real wood flooring, wood effect tiles have a cooler surface, which can be particularly beneficial during summer. The tiles provide a refreshing feel underfoot, helping create a cool living space environment.
Outdoor Living Spaces
Outdoor living areas provide the perfect opportunity to create a cooler and more inviting space that seamlessly blends with the natural surroundings. Whether you have a sprawling backyard, a cosy patio, or a humble balcony, transforming your garden is essential for embracing the season and enjoying the warm weather.
There are endless ways to do this, each depending on what your outdoor goals are and what your current space looks like. Whether you wish to design an outdoor kitchen or embrace indoor-outdoor living with seamless integration, we can help create an inviting space you’ll be proud to show off this summer.
Cooling Accessories and Fabrics
We’re all familiar with how British heat feels compared to being abroad; sticky and humid! If you’re not lucky enough to have an air-con, there are plenty of less expensive and more subtle ways to cool down your home in the humidity. For example, choose window dressings that allow you to control the amount of sunlight entering your home, such as light-coloured curtains or sheer fabrics that help filter natural light while maintaining privacy.
We also recommend upgrading your bedding with cooling pillows and mattress toppers designed to regulate temperature and wick away moisture. Look for options made from breathable materials like memory foam infused with cooling gel or bamboo fabrics. These simple swaps will see you cooler and more refreshed during the hotter months.
Functional Storage Solutions
Functional storage solutions are essential for creating a cooling and inviting home as they declutter your living areas, promoting a calm and serene environment. By effectively managing and storing your belongings, you improve air circulation, allowing for a fresher and cooler space.
For example, functional kitchen storage solutions not only enhance the visual appeal of your home but helps you use the space more ergonomically, resulting in improved efficiency and overall happiness. If you spend time organising your kitchen, whether by having a complete renovation or just tidying up your cupboards, you’re sure to help create a cooler and more inviting home where you can relax, unwind, and enjoy the comforts of a well-structured living space.
