How To Make Your Home Feel Summery Indoors

3 ways of bringing summer into your home


If the rest of June is as nice as the beginning of the month, and it continues through July and August, it will be a summer to remember. We like to be optimistic about these things!

Most people will be hoping for the same as we all know that these light, warm, sunny days put a smile on our face and make us feel good about ourselves. Scientists will also tell you that exposure to this kind of weather is also great for mental health. 

Now, as much you would like to be outside for the majority of it, sometimes you have to be indoors at home. But that doesn’t mean you should miss out on summer – just entice it inside. 

Here’s how to lure in the summer:

Clean your windows

To get lots of sunshine into the building, all of your windows need to be sparkling, so give them a regular clean on the inside and outside. Too busy for that? Ask the local window cleaner to sort it. 

If you have thick curtains and they block out some light when open, remove them until winter and hang up some thinner and lighter curtains. 

In a heatwave, does your interior get too warm? You won’t suffer from that problem if you upgrade to energy efficient windows and doors, thanks to the glass they contain.

Install bi-folding doors

We get lots of requests for bi-folding doors in the summer, one of the most fashionable home improvement products of the moment. 

Integrated into a rear wall, they will transport a huge volume of natural light into your living space through each of the individual door leafs, mainly because they feature so much glass and hardly any framing. 

You can establish many openings with bi-folding doors. Fully folded open, they will create an outdoorsy feel indoors and offer fantastic ventilation.

Add some nature

Everyone has become more appreciative of nature and outdoor spaces over the last year, which has led to the increase in popularity of houseplants. 

The most commonly bought houseplants are succulents, ferns and orchids, and you can place yours around the house on any suitable countertops, shelves, floors and tables. 

Another reason why people have really got into house plants is because they are known to benefit your health due to them ridding the air of pollutants and making it cleaner, and also lowering stress.

We love summer so much that we have launched a Summer Savings promotion. It includes amazing prices on bi-folding doors and energy efficient windows, if you need them to bring summer into the heart of your home.
