how to style my kitchen for summer

As the warmth of summer approaches, it's time to brighten up your kitchen and embrace the season's vibrant energy. While we can't always rely on the English weather to deliver endless sunshine, we can certainly transform our interiors to reflect the sunny, cheerful spirit of summer. With just a few simple adjustments, you can infuse your kitchen with a fresh summer vibe, regardless of what’s happening outside.

1. Revamp Your Tea Towels

Small changes like swapping out your tea towels can make a significant impact on the ambiance of your kitchen. Opt for tea towels adorned with vibrant, tropical patterns and bright, sunny colours. This simple switch will instantly breathe new life into your kitchen space.


2. Fresh Blooms

There's nothing quite like the sight of a beautiful bouquet of fresh flowers to brighten up your day. Sunflowers, lilies, and other summer blooms are perfect for creating a cheerful atmosphere in your home. Consider signing up for a local florist's delivery service to ensure you always have a fresh supply of flowers on hand.

3. Cultivate a Herb Garden

Bring a touch of greenery into your kitchen by starting your own herb garden. Not only will homegrown herbs come in handy for cooking, but they'll also add a pop of freshness to your space. Get creative by displaying your herb garden on open shelving or window sills for a stylish and practical solution.

4. Set a Summer Tablescape

Who says tablescapes are just for Christmas? Create a stunning summer-themed tablescape using a colourful table runner and an array of natural foliage and flowers. Layer different textures and elements to add depth and visual interest, making your dining area the focal point of your kitchen.

5. Embrace the Summer Clean

If you missed the traditional ‘Spring clean’ why not have a ‘Summer clean’ instead? Clearing clutter from your kitchen countertops can instantly create a sense of calm and order. Start by decluttering your cabinets and only keeping items that are essential or bring you joy. Give your countertops a thorough cleaning and consider utilising storage hacks like fruit hammocks or hanging shelves to maximise space. A top tip is to create a ‘probation box’ for items you're not quite ready to part with but review it periodically to ensure you're only holding onto what you truly need.


With these simple tips, you can easily transform your kitchen into a bright and inviting space that's sure to lift your spirits, no matter what the weather forecast may say.
