Summertime is just starting, and the homes are getting warm already. Don’t you think so too? So, here we are just in time to remind you to stock up on summer essentials. Got to grab them soon, before it gets all tiring and sweaty around!
Before we dive in, we hope you guessed by now what the essentials are. Did you? Yup, our all-time favourites – Curtains and Bed sheets. These definitely need a make-over (or more accurately, a change-over) during the summers.
What to look for in a curtain?
We often expect curtains to be just pretty and forget their core need in a house. There are different types of curtains that help control lighting and atmosphere (Nope, we are not talking about a digital curtain, here).
Consider this. If you have one room with moderate light coming through the windows and the living room with a brighter setting, it is not practical to buy thick blackout curtains for both rooms. There are specific curtains designed for such purposes. Custom curtains are helpful in this case, especially when you wish for the same curtain in both rooms. All you got to do is choose different linings based on the thickness needed.
For summers, a breezy curtain is clearly preferred. Linens and Cotton are great choices to opt for. The pure version of these materials sets up the space to allow proper ventilation for the room. Putting up linen and cotton curtains gets the room in a relaxing mood.
Getting the bed sheets right
Remember the summer holidays, when you pack your beds and sheets to the terrace for a good night’s sleep? Yeah, those were some good times!
But in today’s world, not everyone has the luxury to turn terrace space into a makeshift bedroom. So what’s the quick solution? Get your bed sheets right!
Settling for an airy bed sheet material (basically cotton and linens again) is the wiser choice. Light-shaded ones may not seem like the ideal ones to settle for. However, neutral shades and pastel shades will allow the ambience to be lighter on the eyes and feel. It’s smart not to go for block, solid colours.
Comfort over Style?
Yup! That’s a good call. But what if we had the luxury to choose both, compromising neither style nor comfort?
Silky and synthetic bed sheets might sound like a heavenly sleep time. But how long do you think that’s going to last? For the summer heat and changing body temperatures, bed sheets and almost every other home furnishing item ought to be forgiving and soulful. The fabric must be able to blend in with the needs of the hour and give you access to a calming and stress-free environment. Trust us, the right fabric tends to do the magic.
So, there you have it! Summer essentials are basically your guide to a happy and healthy home too. Get stocking already!
