Has your home become the center of your universe during the pandemic? If so, today we want to help you get your home Summer ready during the pandemic. The inability to roam around outdoors and travel compels us to retreat indoors and dress up our homes. It’s natural to crave the fresh air and openness of the outdoors during summer. So, perhaps it’s time to get your home Summer-ready!
Simple changes, such as replacing the drapes and bed linen, goes a long way to bring the spirit of summer into your home. The idea is to create a space that offers a welcome break from the gloomy winter months. If you’ve been looking for ways to get your home summer-ready, we’ve got you covered. Let’s check out a few useful ideas to revamp your home for the bright and sunny days ahead.
3 Tips for Getting Your Home Summer-Ready
1. Get set for Spring cleaning.
Creating a summer-friendly home is all about facilitating the free flow of warm sunlight and cool winds within your living space. That’s why the first step of getting your home summer-ready is to get rid of all the clutter you accumulate over the winter months.
From comforters to holiday decorations and Winter clothes, there might be objects scattered in various rooms. Instead, you must organize, even if it involves storing things in your attic or outside storage building to make room for the vibrant sunlight.
It’s also a good time to look around your home and identify objects you don’t need during the Summer. For instance the kettle to enjoy a soothing glass of warm water after dinner can be put away. Or, you might have bought a heating pad that can also be put into storage.
In either case, you’ll rarely need these items during summer. Instead of letting them remain scattered in your bedroom, kitchen, or dining area, it’s a good idea to keep them in the storage section. Or, you could even give them away if you weren’t particularly happy with the purchase in the first place.
2. Amp up the glam factor to get your home Summer-ready.
The summer months mean spending more time outdoors, soaking in the sunshine. If you have a huge backyard, make sure you use it to the fullest. From landscaping the yard to growing your own produce, there are various ways to deck up the exterior of your home.
Also, use gardening accessories, including fairy lights and sculptures, for even more appeal. Also, consider using pebbles to create rustic pathways to mimic the look of a dainty countryside garden. Don’t forget to get the right outdoor furniture that resonates with other decor elements.
Depending on the available space, add a touch of luxury by installing a swimming pool in the backyard. Nothing screams Summer louder than diving into a refreshing pool while the sun shines bright. Imagine creating your own tropical paradise where you can enjoy a refreshing splash of water while social distancing.
Make sure you consult a reliable and licensed supplier who is familiar with local laws regarding new construction. For instance, if you live in Adelaide, look for vendors who specialize in installing concrete pools in Adelaide homes. The right vendors will design, and install your concrete pool from your budget and preferences.
3. Get your home Summer ready by bringing the outside in.
Of course, you might prefer to spend the Summertime by the pool, reading a good novel and sipping on your favorite cocktail. But considering that you’re also be working from home, you will be indoors as well. But don’t let that deprive you of the lively spirit of Summer!
All you must do is add natural elements into the overall decor. From woven jute baskets to wicker lamp shades, there are plenty of ways to add a touch of nature inside your home. You might even look for candle holders made of coconut shells or bamboo.
Another way to add a bit of nature is to bring in a bunch of succulents and indoor plants. Head to your neighborhood nursery and look for plants that thrive indoors. In addition to enhancing the visual appeal, indoor plants also purify the ambient air and create a calming effect.
Whether you’re living in a lavish home or a tiny apartment, there are ways to give your home a summer-friendly makeover. The key is to de-clutter your home and create abundant space to let the natural light in. Also, if you’ve got a backyard, use it to the fullest by installing a concrete pool or creating your own kitchen garden.
