Uplift your home and lifestyle with these inspiring projects
It’s not long until the kids are back at school; we’re ready and excited for a new year and a new start. Naturally, it’s the perfect time for a little home improvement!
Perhaps it’s time to get on top of your home organisation with new storage solutions, or maybe you’re looking for a way to sleep easier on these hot summer nights. Or maybe you’re planning countless outdoor gatherings this season, and need to update your BBQ area.
No matter what you have in mind, you can get ready for the year by restyling, refreshing and reorganising at home. Here are our fresh ideas and advice to get you started!
Organise your home with these must have storage solutions
There are plenty of furniture pieces that double as stylish storage solutions; couch bases, coffee tables, ottomans and beds can also act as smart storage units.
If you don’t already have a great buffet or sideboard, consider adding one to complete your dining room and integrate a new storage solution. Style it beautifully and enhance the room by adding lamps, flowers, books and art.
But who says storage must hide things away? A ladder shelf is an attractive addition for home organisation. Floating shelves also offer added storage without overwhelming a room.
Beat sleeping in the heat with this summer bedding inspiration
Bamboo sheets are lightweight, ultra-breathable and moisture-wicking. They are an excellent choice for staying cool on hot Summer nights. Combine these with a silk pillowcase and you are set for Summer. 100% silk pillowcases are naturally cool to the touch for a better night’s sleep. These are also hypoallergenic.
A latex mattress is recommended if you’re a hot sleeper. There are also plenty of Summer mattress toppers and protectors designed to keep you cool and comfortable. While you’re refreshing your bedding, consider the last time you replaced your pillows. As a rule of thumb, it is recommended to replace them every 1-2 years.
Switch up your drapes for the season and install sheer linen curtains. This lightweight material will give you privacy while allowing light to filter through.
A good fan is a life saver during the hot Summer months. Technology has come a long way, allowing for cooler rooms without the loud noise. A Dyson cool tower fan is stylish, sleek, cooling and quiet.
Love to entertain? Create the perfect outdoor space with a BBQ area and all the added extras
Set up your outdoor BBQ area for a Summer of easy entertaining. At the heart of your outdoor BBQ area is the BBQ island. This large appliance includes the BBQ itself, as well as prepping and storage space. You can purchase modules individually and build your island exactly how you like it; include handy features like sinks, additional burners, corner pieces and even island fridges.
A full suite of BBQ tools will make you feel like the master chef of backyard cooking. Stock up with tongs, kebab skewers, a spatula, scraper, carving knife, grill brush, basting brush and a meat thermometer if you’re really serious!
A comfortable and welcoming outdoor lounge suite will ensure you never cook alone. A sofa and a couple of chairs, as well as a table for dining, will bring the party outdoors and you can enjoy the company.
Refresh your bedroom with stylish new curtains and drapes
Natural tones are on trend for curtains and drapes, such as greens, browns and beiges. These hues are drawn from nature and refresh a bedroom alongside any colour scheme.
Sheer white curtains are light and airy and reminiscent of beachside holidays and dreamy resorts –where we’d rather be!
Wave fold curtains add a little something different to your home as they undulate alongside your windows. They add a contemporary chic style and a dynamic 3D look to your living spaces.
Pelmets are a classic French design, adding a box-like frame over the tops of curtains. Pelmets work best in larger, spacious rooms where the design won’t feel crowded.
Get the latest and greatest pet accessories for your best friend
With so much Summer rain around this year, it’s a good time to upgrade and replace your dog’s kennel to ensure your best friend is feeling cared for and as comfy as you are!
Make sure it has enough room to walk inside and do a few turns before laying down for a nice long nap. Whether you’re looking for a design that’s traditional or one to match your outdoor area styling – you’ll find a great range in Centre now.
If your pet is more of an indoor prince or princess, there is a host of comfortable and stylish beds to meet your furry friend’s needs. Choose from plush snuggle versions, orthopaedic, odor resistant mattresses or even temperature regulating mats to help keep them cool.
Be sure to keep your pooch stylish outside of home too with a collar, bandanna or coat that perfectly matches their personality… adorable!
