Transform your bedroom for the warmer months ahead with these easy updates.

As we look forward to warmer weather, our minds have turned to home renovations. The great spring clean has been completed, our gardens have been planted with budding bulbs and all that’s left to do is invite the summertime into our homes.

As the part of the home where we spend the most time, it would be inane not to focus on the bedroom first. You don’t need to completely renovate your bedroom to create a fresh new look for summer - but a few light changes can really make a difference.

From switching to silk to playing with colour, here are some summer bedroom ideas to help switch up your space…

With the change in seasons fast approaching, temperatures are set to rise. And while this will delight many, chances are the hot climate won’t be as alluring come nighttime. Don’t let the warm weather disrupt your slumber by investing in a lightweight duvet. For a cooling yet comfortable night’s sleep, a duvet with a tog rating of 4.5 or less is best for summer. This Karla Bree Goose Feather & Down Duvet is lightweight, airy and made with down certified to the Responsible Down Standard making it a sustainable choice.


Nothing says summer quite like white bedding. White sheets are synonymous with hotels and therefore instantly put you in the mindset of holiday travels. They also help brighten up a room and create a clean crisp vibe. What’s more, the colour white is more resistant to sun absorption compared to darker shades meaning there’s no danger of overheating at night. Look to Lazy Linen, Himêya, Peri Home and The Lyndon Company for the best white bedding sets.

Textures help to keep a space from feeling flat or one dimensional. They create visual interest and add depth to a room which is why they’re a key element when it comes to interior design. Throws are a great way to add texture to a bedroom plus they come in handy on chillier summer nights. Opt for something in a beach-like neutral to stay on theme and simply drape over the end of the bed in a casual fashion. This Kabeli Throw from Pineapple and Elephant features a geometrical tufted pattern in an Ecru shade which is reminiscent of sandy beaches.


While the overall colour scheme can stay cool, crisp and neutral, don’t be afraid to have a little fun with pops of brighter hues (it is summer after all!). Fun, upbeat shades such as yellow, blue, pink and green all make for the perfect pick-me-up and you can go as bold (or as subtly) as you dare. Foxford have a colourful array of cheerful throws whereas Malini, Ralph Lauren Home and Scatter Box stock vibrant scatter cushions.

Summer is a time when nature is bursting with beauty and colour, so why not aim to bring some of that splendour into your bedroom? Florals add life to the room, preventing it from feeling stale and connects the room with nature. Look to Ted Baker, Joules, Christy and Bedeck Belfast for floral bedding accents.


Not only indulgent in feel, sleeping on silk comes with serious beauty benefits: reducing fine lines, preventing split ends and controlling frizz. What’s more, silk can help you to sleep better. The luxurious feel can be mentally relaxing helping you to nod off effortlessly. Then, once you are asleep, silk can make toss and turning less disruptive. Especially great for summer, silk is breathable and can regulate your temperature by wicking away moisture to keep you dry and cool. Look to William Hunt for silk pillowcases in an array of stylish colours, each one promising the perfect night's sleep.
