Sensational summer houses - a home from home
Summer homes can be anything you want them to be, they could not be more versatile if they tried!
Nestled snuggly at the end of your garden, they offer an ideal place to escape to, an extra living space for relaxing in, a glorious crafting room, a bedroom to accommodate guests, a serious office or workshop and not forgetting an outside bar or cosy birdwatching area.
And it doesn’t end there! As well as the vast choice of internal options, the outside can hold it’s own with exterior colours to suit your garden and personality. These outdoor rooms have it all going on!
If you can think of a nicer way to enjoy a morning cup of coffee than listening to the birds chirping merrily up close in your garden then you must let us know! An undisputed perfect little spot to sit comfortably and absorb nature with an afternoon mug of steaming hot tea, paired with a very dip-able biscuit of course! A place to de-stress where the only pressing job is whether to top up the bird feeder or deadhead your flowers! A great place to unwind and spend an evening by yourself or entertaining family and friends. Summerhomes are so special you will not want to leave your own garden!
If you have found a summer home that’s just right for you and you’re now full to bursting with summerhouse decor ideas, you could create a much loved room to spend your time in. Being outside in your happy place can trigger your inner creativity, so whether you are working or enjoying your favourite hobby inside your summer house, it can help to inspire you even further. Beautifully blending into your peaceful garden or standing out as a focal point, a summer house/garden room would not be out of place even in a small garden. Partnered nicely with decking or a veranda, some furniture and fabrics, or even bunting and fairy lights, you can dress it up however you wish.
Warm shades such as grey, green or blue blend into the garden beautifully and compliment the natural setting. Neutral and earthy tones offer a rustic and country style feel and quietly nestled between green trees, growing climbers and pretty potted plants will create an exquisite retreat. Whites are calming, light and airy. Soft pastels lean towards a beach hut style and coastal themes. Modern summer homes painted in bold colours will claim the garden and make it it’s own, imprinting your personality on the outside space.
So if you are lucky enough to own a summer house and are looking for a colour to shout from it’s rooftop; contemplating a neutral look that will help it to blend in with your garden’s natural landscape; searching for different colour ideas to use on the summer home’s door and window frames, or considering a new summerhouse project and still gathering design and decor ideas. Whatever the reason, it’s extremely important to choose the right product. Most paints are not robust enough to withstand outdoor weather conditions and keep your summerhome looking in tip-top condition.
Our paint suggestion would be Wood Stain and Protect, Royal Exterior and for brand new wood with a natural look Timber Eco Shield. These long lasting, hard wearing and highly waterproof wood stains will keep looking good and protected whatever the weather throws at it! And with over 100 super colours to choose from, it will be impossible not to find the colour you desire to transform your summerhouse with flair. You will be spoilt for choice!
