Our homes are more important now than they have ever been so whether you will be spending most of your time there this summer or not, why not follow some of our simple tips on how you can spruce up your space for the warmer months at Victoria Retail Park!

1. Up Your Accessories Game

With the arrival of a new season, updating your interior accessories works wonders to give your home a lighter appearance. A few tweaks here and there can make a big difference. Simply adding a new set of summery cushion covers from Oak Furnitureland will brighten up your sofa with a splash of colour.

2. Bring The Outdoors In

Nothing beats a healthy dose of some greenery or fresh blooms to get in the summer spirit. Add some seasonal plants or flowers to give life to your space and let the floral scents sweep through your home. Marks and Spencer Foodhall and the B&Q Garden Centre have a wonderful array of vibrant real or artificial plants and flowers to breathe a breath of fresh air into any room for a natural, summery touch.

3. Create A Summery Outdoor Space

With back-garden staycations on the rise what better time to give your outdoor space a new look? With a few simple adaptations it will be feeling like a holiday destination in no time! Why not head over to Argos for a new garden sofa set or a new BBQ for those weekend garden parties in the sunshine!

4. Liven Up A Room With A Statement Piece

No matter what your décor style is, statement pieces really can transform any room – big or small. Get yourself into TK Maxx to live out your homeware dreams to find either a new statement rug, a vibrant wall art piece or ornament or even a new statement arm chair – the possibilities are endless!

5. Have A Go At Upcycling

Want to refresh your home on a budget? Adding a lick of paint to some out-dated furniture you have wanted rid of for ages is a low-cost option to transform your space. Pop into B&Q and choose a lighter neutral tone or be bold and go with a vibrant pastel shade to add a pop of colour to the room.
