Tips For Savouring Summer Views From Home

Tips For Savouring Summer Views From Home

When the sun finally peeks out from the clouds and Britain is blessed with glorious weather, our surroundings seem to come alive in a whole new way. As a country we eagerly anticipate these bright, sunny days and hope summer brings plenty of them.

Sunshine really brings out the vibrant greens, browns, blues, and greys of our landscape and flowers, making every view around our homes even more stunning.

If you’re fortunate enough to have a home that looks out onto a local beauty spot, rolling hills, or an iconic landmark, this is your time to shine!

Spending time soaking in these scenic vistas is a wonderful way to relax and reflect on life. So, let’s talk about how you can make the most of the beautiful scenery from the comfort of your home.

Here are some simple tips and product ideas to help you maximise those amazing views all summer long:

Feature Doors

There’s no denying that bi-folding doors are the ultimate choice for enjoying open views. Their multi-panel design allows them to fold back completely, giving you an uninterrupted view of the outdoors.

French doors and sliding patio doors are also fantastic options, effectively opening up your home to the outside world.

All of these doors feature large glass areas with minimal framing, ensuring your view remains clear even when the doors are closed. Consider aluminium versions for less framework and more glass. And if you have the space, consider oversized versions to enhance transparency even more.

Expansive Bi-folding Doors

Floor-To-Ceiling Windows

Installing large or full-height windows can give you an expansive view of the landscape around your property and add a touch of elegance to your home.

These sizeable windows let in plenty of natural light, transforming darker rooms into bright, inviting spaces that lift your spirits and welcome guests inside.

For those who really want to make the most of a picturesque view, aluminium frames are a great choice for floor-to-ceiling windows. They offer minimal framing and maximum glass area, ensuring the best possible view.

Floor-To-Ceiling Windows in a Living Space

Window Seats

There’s something incredibly cosy about a window seat. Tucked under a window, these seats provide a perfect spot to enjoy the outside world from the comfort of your home. They’re often found in bay windows and can be made of wood or upholstered for added comfort.

Layer your window seat with soft blankets, throws, and cushions to make it even cosier. It’s an ideal place to sit back, relax, and take in the view, whether you’re reading a book, taking a nap, or simply people watching and watching the world go by.

If you need extra storage in your home, it’s a good idea to look for a window seat with built-in compartments and a lift-up lid.

To enhance your view even further, consider adding mirrors, lighting, and other window and door products from Planet’s home improvements.
