How To Make Your Home Feel As Summery As The Outdoors

3 ways of bringing summer into your home


We cannot have any complaints about the weather over the last couple of weeks, and we hope, as much as you probably do, that it’s here to stay! 

When it’s light, warm and sunny, it does tend to make us feel good about ourselves, and leaves you feeling full of energy, more so than you might feel in the middle of a long and gloomy winter. 

So, while summer is here, you ought to embrace it as much as you can, both indoors and outdoors. 

To entice lots of that summer sun into your living space, and make it feel as summery as the outside, take the following measures:

Clean your windows

The sun will struggle to break into your home as much as it could if your windows are dirty internally and / or externally, so you must keep on top of cleaning them. Do this yourself, or take the easier option and hire a window cleaner. 

We also suggest removing any thick curtains around the house, so that they don’t block out light when open, and hanging up some lighter, thinner coverings.

Does the house burn up when it’s particularly hot outside? Invest in energy efficient windows to solve that problem.

Install bi-folding doors

Bi-folding doors are always one of our most popular products in the summer, and with good reason. 

For starters, they look exquisite, and you can create huge openings with them if you have a 5, 6 or 7 pane design. Added to that, bi-folding doors have very prolonged glass panes and hardly any framework, so a massive amount of natural light passes through them, and you get an amazing garden view.  

In the event of any overheating, use a bi-folding door for ventilation.

Add some nature

It’s hard at a time like this if you don’t have a garden and there’s no park space locally for you to enjoy. Not to worry though.

Why not bring some nature into your house to make up for this with the addition of various houseplants in rooms e.g succulents, ferns and orchids, displayed on countertops, floors and tables. 

Did you know that houseplants will be good for your health? It’s true, because they will remove air pollutants to make your indoor air cleaner, which can then reduce stress and increase happiness levels.
