Sprucing up Your Living Room for the Heat of Summer

by James Helliwell on Jun 10, 2015

Winter has come and gone and we are now rapidly approaching the heights of summer. If you haven’t already, now is the time to finally getting round to clearing all the old tat out of your house and especially your living room. Get anything that’s wonky or broken fixed now, because you’re not going to want to do it when it’s roasting outside! Be quick though as you only really have a few weeks left until the weather really starts ramping up. Not sure where to begin? I’ve written a small checklist on what you should start on first and how best to approach this living room living nightmare!

Fix and Paint

Fix and Paint

First things first, mend anything that’s broken! It sounds simply but its time for that wonky table to finally stand up straight after years of neglect! Anything the creeks, mend it. Anything that squeaks, lubricate it. Chairs and sofas should be cleaned thoroughly and any damage to them should be fixed. Try to avoid re upholstering, unless you have to as its expensive and often unnecessary. Leather spray paint is very useful to give leather furniture a new shine and whilst other upholstery can’t always be painted on, it can be disguised! If you have time, look into giving the room a fresh lick of paint also!

Remove Anything Unnecessary

Again it sounds very simple but you’d be surprised just how many people seem to accumulate a very large amount of rubbish in and around their lounge area. From stacks and stacks of unwanted magazines to old DVD’s and VHS’s that no one watches anymore, anything that’s deemed unwanted and that takes up space should be removed and either sold, stored or thrown away. The room needs to breath in the summer and the feeling of being cluttered in by mess is one that you’ll probably want to avoid!

Remove As Much Off The Floor As Possible

This sort of ties into the previous point but I cant stress enough how important it is that you have floor space in the summer. Having a wide-open floor area really improves the flow and navigation of a living room and it will often lead to a cooler atmosphere as the fresh air from an open window will be able to circulate better which is good for your health. If you can put shelves up to remove books and DVD’s and wall mount your television, already you would have gained a significant amount of floor space.
