Summer has finally arrived, and wasn’t it long overdue? Summer, as I’m sure you’re all aware is the perfect time for re-decorating the home. This summer, a return to nature and wooden décor appear to be key themes that will carry through, and numerous redecorations seem to be carrying along this theme. Here are just three ways that you can capitalise on this and bring wood into your home this summer.
Wooden Floors to Brighten Up Any Entrance
Your entrance hallway is the one place where people will gain a first impression of your home. Unfortunately, as it is the place where most people enter and exit your home, it becomes grubby and tatty quickly, creating a poor first impression… especially if you have carpets.
For this reason, especially if you’re thinking about a restyle, you should seriously consider wooden floors (or laminate wooden effect ones if the budget is tight). This will instantly both take your home back to nature and make the space much more liveable. Wood allows for easy wipe down and quick cleaning, so gone are the days of mucky footprints staining the carpet. This way you’ll have a light, bright entrance hallway that will last forever.
Wooden Beds to Bring Nature into the Bedroom
The bedroom is a sumptuous boudoir in the winter, and a place to retire and relax away from the cold. However, in the summer, this is no longer the case, and you want something that is light, bright and airy: the perfect place to escape the heat of the summer sun.
Wooden beds are perfect for the effect of bringing the outside in, especially handcrafted solid wooden ones. If you team this with light, beige linen and stone coloured walls, you’ll revitalise your bedroom, celebrating the best of the British summer in the process.
Wooden Picture Frames and Accessories to Tie Everything Together
Of course, nobody can afford to entirely redecorate every single room in their home and, because of this; you need to pay attention to the little details that will tie everything together. Simple décor items like wooden furniture frames provide a completely natural look, while stone or sand based vases will help tie together elements from each room, creating a constant theme using a minimal budget.
To conclude, wood definitely looks like it will be the in vogue décor accessory this summer. From big, statement wooden furniture pieces to small and slight finishing touches, wooden décor could make all the difference to the outlook of your home this summer. So, if you’re thinking of redecorating or renovating, keep the above points to mind when you’re selecting a scheme. There’s wooden furniture for every budget, so the sky is your limit- good luck.
