Longer and warmer Summer days are just around the corner. You know what that means? Time to entertain! Prepare for those long awaited catch-ups with friends and family, barbecues and soirees. Bring the essence of summer into your kitchen with a few seasonal ideas to renew your space.

Summer Tips:

  1. Revamp Accessories

An overhaul of your interior accessories is required as each season changes to transform your kitchen to suit the season. Evoke your senses and excitement of having a summer kitchen by placing smoothie appliances in easy reach areas and adding some greenery or a fresh bouquet of flowers to fill the room. Embellish furniture with light and floral furnishings to make the space feel welcoming and swap out heavy drapes or rigid blinds for light new blinds to allow the light to shine through.

  1. Build a Functional Feature Wall

Bring the outdoors in by creating a living wall of herbs. This is a beautiful option to let the fragrance of fresh herbs waft through your kitchen and add a touch of colour in your summer kitchen. A wall of herbs is convenient saving you time and money in the long run with fresh homegrown herbs.

  1. Create Room

Adding an island to your summer kitchen is perfect for entertaining as it joins the kitchen and dining space into one room. When hosting a late afternoon soiree it will place most of the action in the centre of the room so you never miss a moment by popping back and forth between the kitchen. An island is an exquisite addition to a summer kitchen with multiple uses all year round.

  1. Let there be Colour

A white wash kitchen has ruled the kitchen scene for years, though a shift has occurred and grey is the new white. By using a variety of grey hues you will easily be able to match décor pieces to the shades while continuing to maintain a light and open feel that white shades offer.
