6 Simple Ways to Make Your Home Look Summery

With summer just around the corner, now is the best time to start revamping your space for the upcoming season. Wondering how to make your home look fresh and vibrant? Here are nine simple ways you can do to bring in summer to your home.


  1. Let the Outdoors In

One of the things you can do to get that summery feeling into your home is to incorporate outdoor beautifications. Place potted plants in the corners of your home, as well as by the windows. Choose flowers in warm shades of yellow, pink red, or orange.

  1. Update Flooring

Still have that old-looking drab carpet? This could be the best time for change! Replace it with vinyl, timber, bamboo, or laminate the flooring in breech tones or light oak to instantly brighten a room.

  1. Replace Seat Covers

Are your seat covers faded? Have them replaced and give your cushions the beautification they deserve. Pick slipcovers in colours complementing the room’s hues. Sticking to the room’s colour palette and using a variation of these hues add depth to the overall appeal of the space.


  1. Change Window Covers

Ditch the blinds and bring in the elegant look of curtains. Opt for neutral shades for a safer pick or muted pastel tones for a vibrant aesthetic. By simply changing your curtains can give any room whole new personality. Choose free flowing curtains over structured ones to gracefully capture gentle summer breeze.

  1. Switch Lighting Scheme

Cool white lights are a staple home lighting. However, they tend to suck the life out of a space. For a livelier living room, switch to warm white for natural-looking sunny glow. If you wish to keep your staple light bulb but want to add warmth to your home’s lighting, strategically place LED lights in some parts of the room.

  1. Get a New View

Summer is the time of the year when we all want to have fun outdoors, so why not offer a nice outdoor view from inside your home? If your living room centres on a fireplace or a big kitchen, rearrange the furniture to front a big window. Draw the curtains to the side to let the light freely stream into the room and allow the outdoor view to be the focal point of the room.

Redecorating for the upcoming season doesn’t require an entire furniture replacement or major house repainting. All you need to do is just a few reorganization and a couple additions of bits and pieces to welcome summer into your home.
