1. Have a Paint-Over 

A great way to brighten up your garden room in Cardiff for the summer is by painting the interior and/or the exterior. Choosing a lighter, pastel colour for your makeover is perfect to create an airy atmosphere and make the garden home space feel open and bigger. 

The colours that we suggest for the summer would be any summer white colours such as barely white, pink duet, cool sky blue and sweet spring. Light colour paint will also reflect the heat away, making your garden room feel cooler when relaxing in the hot summer temperatures. 

2. Update Fabrics and Textiles 

Updating any fabrics and textiles in your garden room for warmer weather is a great way to optimise and create a comfortable atmosphere. Material such as cotton and linen will allow for better airflow in your garden room, keeping you cooler on hot summer days. 

If you want to ensure your room can be used as a shaded area, then investing in sun-blocking curtains or blinds is ideal. They will regulate sunlight and temperature to maximise comfort in months when the heat and light may get too intense, through months in July-August.

3. Maximise the Natural Lighting
