Summer-ready homes

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?

Summer curtains

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

Summer bed sheets

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!

Make space for summer

The summer’s just started and it’s already heating up! Most of us depend on electricity to cool us down, which of course is your first easy option. But what if we said there is a smarter way to hold your fight against this season?

Subtle fabric furnishings are classy to look at. We all know that by now. What you didn’t know is that they could also be a breezy solution to summers (and almost, every other season).

Here are some little tricks in the book that you’ll love to try out.

Light and Dark

Right when it’s summer, you might be coming across terms like ‘go light, go fine and nice’. But we say, do not limit yourselves to that.

Of course, light and subtle colours are a go-to option. But for dark-themed lovers or those who have light-coloured walls, solid colours would be the most appropriate choice. So, look for wise fabrics instead. Cotton and linens are fabrics that go a long way to make you feel fresh throughout the day. Both have great absorbent qualities, helping you dry up your sweat/ moisture (…and worries!).

Once the material is decided, the next comes colour. To embrace the season, you could get all the summer colours like red, orange, and yellow into your abode. You can still love your solid colours without compromising for the season. Or a mix and match of both light and dark shades can create an interesting effect on the house.

Like, if you have a dark-coloured sofa set, pastel or white-toned cushion covers will look fitting to the decor. On the other hand, you could also try out bold, bright colours like red or navy blue to stay on the dark-themed wagon.

What to get in summer?

When you’re a seasonal shopper, picking furnishings can get confusing. What is necessary, what is not…all can be a bit of a haze. Here are some simple make-overs that might help you with this.

Stocking up curtains for the summer is universal knowledge. It sure is a natural practice by now. Solid cotton curtains work marvellously well for those who like the interiors dark and cosy. For most others, cotton sheers deem as a perfect fit, considering they want a touch of the summer sun but with reasonable warmth.

Next comes floor cushions! Since the heat is not spiking down anytime soon, lying down or gathering around on the floors has its perks. That’s where floor cushions are a great help. Quick catchup with friends and family, a short noon nap (with throws in place, of course!), or even have a picnic-style setting in the backyard. All are a no-brainer to plan as you have floor cushions ready to serve your purpose(s). The catch? They only accentuate the spaces wherever placed, which wins brownie points for the overall house look.

Summer essentials

Curtains and cushions have the added advantage of blending into almost every room. Be it bedrooms or living or even balconies. Another important furnishing, which is also exclusive in its usage, is the bed sheets.

Days are longer during summers, and nights can get a bit uncomfortable to sleep. That’s why bed sheets are a necessity. They could get messy very soon, especially if you have kids playing around during summer vacations. So, it’s wiser to choose cotton solids (colours) so the sheets don’t get too dirty too soon. In case you prefer lighter/ whiter tones, regular change-ups may be required. This is to ensure the bedroom stays consistently fresh during the season.

With such simple notes, summer in the house can get enjoyable. There would be less (or no) uneasiness indoors, making it quite relaxing. Just the thought of it makes you want to try a make-over, doesn’t it? (it does for us, at least!)
You’re all set for summer house shopping!
