Style your life this summer break with these 5 projects

It’s not long until the kids are back at school; we’re ready and excited for a new year and a new start. Naturally, it’s the perfect time for a little home improvement!

Maybe it’s time you gave your outdoor space a makeover to create the perfect entertaining area, or perhaps it’s your bedroom that’s ready for a makeover with new curtains or drapes. Or perhaps you’re looking to style your side and coffee tables like a design pro. 

No matter what you have in mind, you can get ready for the year by restyling, refreshing and reorganising at home. Here are our fresh ideas and advice  to get you started!

Love to entertain? Create the perfect outdoor space with a BBQ area and all the added extras

Set up your outdoor BBQ area for a Summer of easy entertaining. At the heart of your outdoor BBQ area is the BBQ island. This large appliance includes the BBQ itself, as well as prepping and storage space. You can purchase modules individually and build your island exactly how you like it; include handy features like sinks, additional burners, corner pieces and even island fridges.

A full suite of BBQ tools will make you feel like the master chef of backyard cooking. Stock up with tongs, kebab skewers, a spatula, scraper, carving knife, grill brush, basting brush and a meat thermometer if you’re really serious!

A comfortable and welcoming outdoor lounge suite will ensure you never cook alone. A sofa and a couple of chairs, as well as a table for dining, will bring the party outdoors and you can enjoy the company.

Get the latest and greatest pet accessories for your best friend

With so much Summer rain around this year, it’s a good time to upgrade and replace your dog’s kennel to ensure your best friend is feeling cared for and as comfy as you are!

Make sure it has enough room to walk inside and do a few turns before laying down for a nice long nap. Whether you’re looking for a design that’s traditional or one to match your outdoor area styling – you’ll find a great range in Centre now.

If your pet is more of an indoor prince or princess, there is a host of comfortable and stylish beds to meet your furry friend’s needs. Choose from plush snuggle versions, orthopaedic, odor resistant mattresses or even temperature regulating mats to help keep them cool.

Be sure to keep your pooch stylish outside of home too with a collar, bandanna or coat that perfectly matches their personality… adorable!

Refresh your bedroom with stylish new curtains and drapes

Natural tones are on trend for curtains and drapes, such as greens, browns and beiges. These hues are drawn from nature and refresh a bedroom alongside any colour scheme.

Sheer white curtains are light and airy and reminiscent of beachside holidays and dreamy resorts –where we’d rather be!

Wave fold curtains add a little something different to your home as they undulate alongside your windows. They add a contemporary chic style and a dynamic 3D look to your living spaces.

Pelmets are a classic French design, adding a box-like frame over the tops of curtains. Pelmets work best in larger, spacious rooms where the design won’t feel crowded. 

Makeover your bedroom with this season’s trends and colour palette

The bed is the heart of the bedroom and immediately draws the eye. Cane or rattan bedheads are made of beautiful natural material, offering a chic organic touch.

Set the tone for the whole room with warm colours in the duvet cover. From cream to radiant yellow or burnt orange, these desert hues will make your bedroom a welcoming oasis.

While you’re refreshing your bedding, consider the last time you replaced your pillows. As a rule of thumb, it is recommended to replace them every 1-2 years. And if you’re looking for extra comfort, check out the latest in mattress toppers and underlays. Easily create an airy base that helps you sink into a slumber.

A tall vase filled with soft wheat grasses adds a natural touch and acts as a dynamic piece of decor to enhance the desert theme. Consider a beautiful macrame wall hanging for that final touch.

Style your coffee and side table like a pro 

To make your space appear bigger and brighter, add a glass coffee table. This modern coffee table design is chic and amplifies any decor you use to style the table.

A beautiful rug under a modern coffee table is like adding the perfect artwork to a frame. A stunning natural rug will balance a contemporary look, or a neutral, organic colour will suit any home. We are also loving the trend of bright colourful rugs with abstract shapes – artwork in itself.

There’s something magical about a stack of classic books sitting on a coffee table or side table. There are plenty of attractive coffee table books available to spark interest and conversation. Pop a coloured glass vase on top or try a sculptural candle for added style.

If your coffee table is already full, add a new buffet and matching sideboard. You can style these beautifully with lamps, photo frames, vases, flowers and art for varying heights and layers.
