Take on a fun seasonal challenge by giving
your kitchen a makeover this summer. Whether you’re thinking of applying a new
lick of paint or planning something more elaborate, the advent of a new season
represents a great opportunity to make funky changes to your home.
From lazy lunches to lighter nights, summer
days call for celebration – so be sure to prepare your bar area accordingly. If
you’ve been dithering over whether to install a breakfast bar then this could
represent the perfect time to take the plunge and give your space a beautiful
boost. A key advantage of the breakfast bar is the ease with which it can be
transformed. The same white or pastel colour scheme can alternately appear
demure or decadent with the simple passing of hours.
Any great bar needs its sidekick – and that’s
where contemporary kitchen stools enter the equation. The three main factors to
consider are style, comfort and practicality. The style should be consistent
with the existing look of your kitchen or bar area. Wooden furniture and fixed
height stools are an exquisite match for country-style kitchens while high
gloss bar stools are sure to shine bright through day and night alike.
If you’d prefer not to commit to a complete
bar, then why not try a bar table? Slimmer and similarly stylish to full bars,
they provide a fab alternative to the norm. More compact than conventional
bars, these items work extraordinarily well when it comes to providing your
space with a fun new look.
Social gatherings might as well have been
made for summer nights. In fact, hot weather can bring old friends together
quite unlike anything else, while weddings and birthday parties take on a new
dimension during the warmer months. Alongside this, the simple pleasure of
inviting friends round for a few drinks helps hugely, with a new set of bar stools,like these from 'Atlantic Shopping'being perfectly suited
to a post-BBQ beverage or two. When the sun goes down and you start to get
chilly, simply head indoors for a couple of cocktails around the kitchen
Of course, while a sense of the summary is
obviously alluring, the best bar stools stand the test of time, retaining their
charm through the seasons. Classic oak structures respond to the glow of snow
with the same zealour they typically reserve for sunshine, making them a hot
pick among those who revere all things rustic.
your kitchen can almost be as much of a joy as sampling the fruits of the
season itself. By giving your kitchen a makeover this summer, you can really
set your summer off with a bang, putting a spring in your step over the most
splendid of seasons.
