If you're looking for Summer Bedding ideas , you've come to the right place!
We're going to show you the best summer bedding sets and advise you what to look for and avoid when the temperature heats up!
As we update our Summer bedding wardrobe with a couple of pastel colours, or even trust the Irish sun enough to throw on a pair of shorts, we should also ensure our bedroom isn't neglected for the warmer months. In the summer, crisp linens and breathable fabrics are essential for staying cool and getting a good nights rest; but there's also a number of extra steps you can take to keep your sleep space matching that sunny disposition!
Summer Bedding: Fresh Fabrics
First things first, it's time to pack away any of your bedding that's comprised of Down, or any other winter-grade materials; there's no harm being optimistic (even if you are in Ireland). As the temperature begins to pick up, seek out light, breathable fabrics that will prevent overheating. 100% cotton is always a safe bet for staying cool, and from there it's just a case of your preferred weave. Percale bedding has that impossibly crisp feel that won't suffocate, while sateen has a relaxed texture and is just as breathable.
Summer Bedding: Summer Schemes
It may seem obvious, but brightly coloured summer bedding can be a rooms centrepiece and create the overall theme. Bright, breezy colours can give your bedroom a lighter feel during the summer months, and soft pastels can bring a relaxed, nautical vibe to your space (even if you're nowhere near the water). All-white bedding is another safe bet as it can't be beaten for the fresh look that never goes out of fashion. However, if you opt for all-white you may need to accessorise...
Summer Bedding: Accent with a Throw or Cushion Cover
It's always nice to have a relaxed, minimalist setup in our private space, but when that warm weather hits and we're surrounded by blooming flowers and bright clothing, we want our rooms to reflect that! Some colourful accessories will really pop out and add character to a room. A flashy throw or Cushion Covers Ireland is perfect for this; much lighter than a bedspread, but still giving our bedroom that lift it craves.
Summer Bedding: Spring Cleanin
Obvious tip alert! The handiest (and cheapest) thing we can do to give our bedroom a new lease of life is some good old fashioned scrubbing and dusting. An hour or two of cleaning and decluttering is the simplest way to freshen our room and air out our space. Honestly, is there anything better than a clean room? For a start, it will look more spacious and you may even get some inspiration on what to do with all this new found space. You could even add fresh flowers and scented candles if you're feeling really ambitious...
Summer Bedding: Sun-sational Storage
One bright idea we've seen more and more people having of late is packing away clutter into pretty, colourful boxes under their bed. This way you can add a little sunshine and some eye-catching accessories without taking up any of that precious new space. Why not reuse an old suitcase and repurpose it as a nifty storage box? Quirky and functional!
Summer Bedding: If these walls could talk...
During the summer your walls can talk; in fact they're screaming out for a dash of colour! Why not make a collage of summery photos from a recent family trip or holiday? Simple and inexpensive. Maybe you'd also like to get your hands on some wall art (outdoor images featuring the beach or nature work great), or even paint your own mural as a summer project.
