As summer rolls in it’s time to start looking at your decor and how you can brighten up the place. This is your home and you want to be as comfortable as you can. In the sunniest season of the year, it makes sense that you would want to make the space more joyful and build up some happier memories of warmth and light.
When sprucing up your home for summer, small upgrades can have a big impact. Whether you find inspiration in fresh linen curtains or in swapping out throw pillows, you can do so much with your space. Your whole home can be upgraded with just a few switches of decor or furnishings. Check out our suggestions below.
1. Fresh Interior Paint
If you want to make the space look great for summer, then giving a fresh lick of paint is a great idea. Choose a clean, warm color that can serve as a good backdrop for summer decor pieces like pillows, rugs, and vases.
2. Lighten Up The Linens
You can make a big difference in the way your home looks simply by changing out curtains and cushions for the summer. Darker colors are wonderful for the winter as they keep the heat in, but the lighter colors and textures make a home feel airy and are a great option for the summer months.
3. Swap Out Your Wall Art
Are you someone who likes to hang pictures and paintings on the walls? Well you can easily swap the heavy winter prints and paintings for light summer themes like fruit bowls and beach scenery. The kitchen is one such place that needs to be uplifted, especially in the summer months as it’s likely you’ll spend a lot of time here cooking and chilling out. So, upgrade your kitchen art and make the space come to life.
4. Don’t Forget Your Florals
Bold florals are a must if you want to make the space lighter and brighter. Spaces that are reserved for entertainment, such as the dining room, should be brightened as much as possible. Large scale florals are nice but even breaking out the vases and stuffing them with pretty flowers can really upgrade your decor and brighten the house for the summer ahead.
5. Style The Table
A pretty dining table looks like a centerpiece for the house when you decorate it and have it set up and ready to go. Tablescaping helps to honor the summer sunshine and it’s a beautiful setting for a happy and joyous tea party, too. You can use fabrics in such a way that you can make the space better than ever before.
6. Swap Your Style
If you are lucky enough to have a sunroom ready to capture those rays this summer, then style it up as much as you can. A beautiful room overlooking your garden is going to really feel peaceful and joyful while you’re basking in the brand new warmth of the season. Don’t forget to keep throws handy because despite the summer sunshine, the evenings can become chillier than you’re used to in the day.
7. Upgrade Your Bedding
If your current bedding is dark and heavy, you might consider recovering your headboard in lighter fabrics and changing the bedding to lighter colors, too. If you have floral bedding even better as it’ll really shine and stand out in the summer air.
Getting your home ready for summer should be easy and fun. If you already have some seasonal things in storage, you get the chance to make lovely changes to your home in an instant. Just get it all out in the open to make sure that you have washed anything that’s been stored away before you use it.
