Summer may be coming to an end, but your interiors don’t have to lose their summer shine. With our expert advice, you can keep your home looking bright all year round.

As the evenings get shorter, natural light is at a premium, so making the most of what is available is essential, starting with your flooring.

Laminate flooring is perfect way to maximise light in your home, with the hand finished surface that imitates real wood, reflecting light to keep your home looking bright all year round.

Alternatively, lightly coloured carpets will help fill your home with a summer glow all year round, as they work with the light available. It’s important not to go too dark with your carpet, or you’ll end up with a warm, cosy, winter home rather than an all year round, summery interior.

With plenty of natural light reflecting from your flooring, the next step is your walls. Light coloured paints and wallpapers have consistently topped the summer trends for a number of years as they keep your rooms looking bright all year round.

Light colours, bright, bold floral patterns reappear every summer. Floral patterns can easily take over a room, removing the summer style and giving your home a dated look. To get around this issue, we suggest a feature wall with bright, bold colours to add a burst of energy to the room.

Once you’ve the walls and flooring ready, it’s time to choose the most important part – THE SOFA!
