Despite an unusual spring time for the country, summer is now very much upon us. With home improvements a key focus for many choosing to stay in the uk and make their own abodes summertime ready rather than jetting off, you might be looking for some solutions to perfect your interiors for summer time. Here’s some easy tips to keep in mind when decorating or re-arranging your spaces.


Consider access to your outdoor space

You will no doubt be making the most of sunny days in outdoor spaces at your property, especially if with the extra time at home you have injected some TLC to make these exteriors your own little spot of luxury. Ensuring that you have easy access to these spaces will make life much simpler on the best of summer days when you regularly move between these indoor and outdoor spaces, so allow a clear path to these entry points. Try and arrange rooms with these access points in mind and a clear path towards them.

Did you know you can put shutters in your door areas? Making the most of these walkthroughs using shutters is a fantastic way to enhance their use throughout the day and year, especially with bi-folding or track panels to fold back when you would like clear and open access to windows or doors, reverting back to aligned panels when you close the shutters.

Minimise clutter

Keeping your rooms open and clear will really allow you to make to most of the space during the summer and we bet there are plenty of shelves you have been meaning to de-clutter for some time now – get in there and sort through. For anything that you no longer require, keep your environmental head on and consider selling or donating items before disposing of them, and always recycle if possible. This de-clutter opportunity will allow you to keep your interiors light and fresh which will really help boost your summer mood when in these spaces.


Easy clean solutions

A downside to frequently open windows or doors is that more dust and dirt can blow or be carried through into the home, so opting for easy-clean interior options will definitely make your life easier. Small details such as rolling up your winter cosy rugs to store away for colder months can help make a real difference to both opening up more space in the room and allowing for less cleaning requirement. There are no rules as to when you can use certain pieces of furniture and décor additions, so adjust the room to suit your requirements and don't be afraid of storing some of your purchases away for future use.  

Wherever possible, choose interior additions that are easy to clean and perfect for both summer and winter months, offering long-term benefit and easy home maintenance. Shutters are a fantastic option for window dressings year-round and their combination of versatility and numerous benefits offered can really enhance luxury style paired with practicality in your window dressings. Just one of the benefits of shutters is the year-round temperature control - able to cool the room by having panels either open, or closed in front of an open window allowing the breeze to blow through whilst still controlling privacy. In cooler months, these shutters add an extra layer in front of the window which can help keep heat in.

Make the most of colour

Any colour you enhance in your room will really ‘pop’ when the sunlight shines through, so don’t shy away from a little injection of brightness either in your décor or in some feature furniture pieces, artwork or interesting models. With so many ways to add this colour into your spaces, you’ll be spoilt for choice as to where to take your interiors and might just find yourself inspired to follow suit throughout the home. A positive space filled with colour, whatever is best suited to you, can really improve your mood so make the most of any opportunity you have to boost this. Many of our materials come with an option to custom colour match, so if you decide to either match to a particular colour in the room or use the shutters as your colour injection, simply get in touch with the team and discuss how you can order your coloured shutters today.

Keep the room cool

In the heat of summer days, a key focus will be maintaining a cool temperature in your rooms, but there can be somewhat of a dilemma to this if you still want to ensure that privacy and light control is maintained without sacrificing the cooler room temperature. Shutters are a perfect way to ensure that all of these benefits can be mutually enjoyed. Choose whether to have panels open or closed, and with possible multi-section slat control for the top and bottom of panels, privacy can be increased whilst still allowing plenty of light and breeze into the room.

I love my new blinds. They are high quality, look beautiful and were at the most competitive price. The fitters were also very polite and efficient.

Plantation shutters visited my flat 20 January 2022 to measure, discuss slat size and material, and give me a free estimate which I was happy with.
