Summer is a time for fun and relaxation, but it is also a great opportunity to update your home decor and give it a fresh new look for the warmer months.
If this has been on your mind for a while but are not sure where you would like to start, you can check out these tips down below to see what you could do to make your home a summer oasis that will brighten your mood as well as your home.
Get Rid of Clutter
One of the best ways to give your home a fresh summer look is to declutter and get rid of any unwanted items. Take some time to go through your things and get rid of anything that you no longer use or need.
This will not only help to free up some space in your home, but it will also make it look cleaner and more organized, so you feel good about your surroundings.
If there are some items that you want to keep but cannot find a space in your home, then you may want to take a look at some self storage facilities in your area, or put them in your attic, if you have the space.
Bring in Some Bright Colors
Summer is the perfect time to add some brightness to your home with colorful accents. Whether you opt for a bold statement piece or something more subtle, adding a pop of color can really help to liven up your space.
Not sure where to start? Try adding some colorful pillows or throws to your living room or bedroom. You can focus on summer hues that bring out the ‘vacation’ feel that people love. So, look at yellows, oranges, blues, and so on.
Update Your Window Treatments
Another easy way to change up your home decor for the summer is to update your window treatments. If you typically have heavy curtains or blinds, consider switching to lighter-weight fabrics that will let in more natural light.
Sheer curtains are a great option for summer, or you could try using bamboo shades or roller blinds. Something that will not be too heavy and can help you wake up in the mornings as the first streams of light comes in.
Swap Out Your Rugs
Rugs are another easy way to change the look of your home for the summer. If you have heavy wool rugs, try switching them out for something lighter in weight, like cotton or jute.
Or, if you want to add a pop of color, try finding a brightly-colored or patterned rug that you can use as an accent piece. Focus on the colors we spoke about before or think about going all out with multi-colors to make it a staple piece in your home.
Add Some Houseplants
Not only do houseplants help to purify the air in your home, but they can also really help to brighten up a space. If you do not have any plants in your home, now is the perfect time to add them.
You can find houseplants at most nurseries or gardening stores, or you can even order them online.
Your garden will need this same treatment too, sprucing it up for the summer as well as your home will be a great way to bring the brightness from the inside to the outside.
Think about planting some brightly colored flowers so that when they bloom you can bring them into your home and have them freshen and brighten up your rooms for that summer feeling.
By following these simple tips, you can easily change your home decor for the summer and give your space a crisp, new look.
