What should you think about when redecorating your living room for summer?

Summer is officially here. While everyone wants to spend as much time as possible enjoying the sunshine, there’s also going to be plenty of relaxing in the cool and quiet atmosphere of your living room. So what better time to think about redecorating?

If you’re thinking of restyling or redecorating your living room, you can find a great deal of inspiration by browsing through the wares at Guineys Homestore. What kind of things should you be thinking about?

How far do you want to go?

You may decide now is the right time for a complete redecoration of your living room. While the days are long and the weather is fine you’ll have the perfect conditions for repainting, wallpapering, or changing your furniture and décor.

On the other hand, you may simply be looking for a restyle and a refresh of what you already have – after all, if it ain’t broke why fix it? You don’t necessarily have to think about painting and other big jobs, even changing some of the homeware and accessories you’ve got in your living room can make a huge difference. The choice is all yours.

Planning for the future

While the sun is high and summer moods are bright we tend to put the same focus on the choices we make for colours, furnishings, and accessories. Remember that your living room has to be welcoming and comfortable all year round however, and that as much as we don’t want to think about it winter is going to come eventually.

Make sure the choices you make are going to represent both the best of the sunny summer weather, but also be your comfortable haven when the weather turns and the days get shorter. If you prefer sunny and summery colours then by all means make that your choice, but just consider the long term when it comes to the decisions you make.

Changing your accessories

If you don’t want to go for a full-scale redecoration you can change the feeling of your living room simply by changing a few key things. Curtains, cushions, rugs, and other homeware items are all relatively easy to change from season to season. With a neutral and complementary base colour scheme it means you can always have the perfect décor for the season without having to go to the effort of completely redecorating every time the weather changes.

There’s no reason why you can’t start making plans for your autumn, winter, and spring décor choices now too. The sooner you begin thinking about them the faster you will be able to put your plans into motion.

Whatever choices you’re making for your summer living room refresh, Guineys has the perfect range of homeware and furnishings to choose from.
