Tips To Get Your Kitchen Summer Ready in Perth
It’s nearly time for summer, which means outdoor dining and holiday feasts are on the cards. Our kitchens definitely get a workout during the summer months, whether it’s hosting the big Christmas lunch, watching the cricket over a BBQ, or just sharing a drink with friends as the sun goes down.
At Flexi, we have some helpful tips to get your kitchen summer ready, no matter what your plans are and no matter what your kitchen design. Let’s get started!
1. Add Some Seasonal Décor
As far as kitchen makeovers go, this is an easy (and fun) way to get started. By making a few easy switches to some seasonal décor (think tea towels, serving plates, table runners, floor runners – the list goes on), you can add some immediate holiday cheer to your home.
Modern kitchens and traditional kitchens alike all benefit from a little seasonal sparkle! You can also find some more inspiration in our previous blog post: ‘8 Ways to Prepare Your Kitchen for the Holiday Season.’
2. Check your Pantry
With the warmer summer months now upon us, the last thing you want is for ants and other pests ruining your vibe. Set aside an afternoon to check through your pantry, making sure your items are securely stored and there are no spills or crumbs lying around that could attract insects. You’ll thank yourself later!
3. Prepare your Outdoor Setup
Nothing beats an outdoor BBQ in summer. To make sure your outdoor setting is ready to go, make sure to:
- Wipe down your table and wash any seat covers
- Check for cobwebs and any hidden pests
- Clean your BBQ and check your gas bottle is full
- Get your lighting sorted (a mix of task lighting and mood lighting)
If you’re also looking at outdoor kitchen upgrades, Flexi can help you out with our range of outdoor kitchens. Designed to withstand our harsh WA climate, these outdoor designs make for the ideal kitchen remodel if you love entertaining alfresco.
4. Clear Some Space
Summer feasts mean lots of leftovers. Make sure you have the pantry, fridge and freezer space you need to store all your ingredients and meals. Also make sure you have plenty of containers on hand, too – you don’t want to let anything go to waste!
If you have the space, consider a smaller outdoor fridge to stock your drinks. You can also invest in eskies for summer BBQs, as long as they’re packed full of ice.
5. Let There be Light
Summer means sunshine, so make the most of the natural light (before the hottest part of the day). Give your windows a clean and consider things like sheer curtains or white block-out shutters to give your space a refreshing and welcoming feel.
