Home and Garden Ideas for Summer

Whether you own a house with a large garden or a tiny apartment, it is still possible to make the most of the summer months.

Quest Bulgaria has put together some ideas to help you make the most of your living area inside and out, whatever the size.

Garden furniture

1. Enjoy what outdoors space you have. If you are fortunate to have a large garden, make sure you put it to good use. First of all, make sure it is kept neat and tidy. Invest in some garden furniture – table and chairs or sun loungers – and then you will be able to enjoy the sun anytime. A BBQ allows you to dine alfresco. If you live in a warm climate a pool can be great entertainment.

Alternatively, if you only have a balcony a small BBQ is still a possibility, and so is some garden furniture for you to dine out doors. There are foldaway types of furniture that can take up little room so enabling you to enjoy the summer too.

2. A garden provides you with plenty of space to plant borders with flowers and shrubs and pots. If you only have a balcony you can make use of the space with potted plants, window boxes or hanging baskets with beautiful flowers and plants that will add an array of colour for summer.

3. Summer decor needs to be cheerful. So if you have old or tired garden furniture or pots that has seen better days be bold and simply paint them in bright colours and add patterns for an instant inexpensive unique style.
 4. Let the outdoors in and use bright, cheerful colours inside of your home for a fresh feel. If you only add some natural looking fabrics as throws to tired looking furniture, or invest in some cane accessories such as chairs, door curtains etc. They will all add the charm of summer to the inside.

5. For an instant make over indoors, table cloths, rugs, placemats and cushion covers could all be replaced relatively cheaply with lighter, brighter materials and fabrics for a fresh new look. Use colours with cooler tones like blue and beige, or yellow and lime green for a fresh summer look.
