Get Your Home Into Shape For Summer With These Top Trends

Summer Trends

Reading about endless queues at the airports, and with rising bills to pay for, you may have taken the wise decision of having a holiday at home this summer.

While off and at home, why not make it your job to give it a makeover.

If it needs one, don’t do anything quite yet, not until you have read up on the latest home trends.

Orion has insight into some of them and they’re all focused on making homes more tranquil spaces, in this turbulent period in history.

Self-care spaces

With everything that’s going on in the world, it can be overwhelming, so you need to think about your well-being. Doing the things you love the most will help, all those favourite hobbies of yours.

Yoga might be one of them, the perfect pursuit for de-stressing. If so, get an extension added that you can use as a yoga room. Bookworms should establish a reading corner near a big picture window, if burying your head in a book is what you do to switch off.

Going in search of the serene, many homeowners are wanting spa-like bathrooms in their houses. Orion can supply and fit privacy glass in areas like these.

Biophilic design

The main objective in biophilic design is to marry the indoor environment with the nature outside so that they become one. It’s recommended for easing stress and can also give a home a more spacious feel.

The trend is reliant on your home strongly capitalising on natural light and ventilation.

It will do if it has some form of feature door as the interlink between home and garden, such as a bi-folding door or sliding patio door, two products that offer a wide opening and richness of glass.

Green finishes

When you’ve been in a green environment somewhere, can you remember noticing just how calm and relaxed you felt in it?

To get a green-like flavour, just request some green-coloured windows and doors from Orion Windows if your existing ones need upgrading.

Request sight of our full colour palette and you will see that we have several green shades, with one of them being the very charming Chartwell Green.
