This summer, we’re probably going to be spending more time at home than we usually do because, even though things are looking up, and more and more restrictions are being lifted all the time, things are not quite yet back to normal and home socialising may still be a big part of life for a while.
That’s why, ahead of this summer, you’re going to really want to focus on sprucing up your home and making it perfect for what many of us think is the best season. With that in mind, here are a few simple ideas for doing up your home for summer 2021:
Embrace floral prints
Few things will give your home that fun and frivolous summer vibe like floral prints. Whether you use them in wallpaper or cushion covers, florals will add a pop of much-needed colour, fun and summer style to your space, and the great things about florals, is they come in all different colours and shapes, so you can be sure to find at least a few floral pieces that you love for your home.
If you have the budget for it, and you want to ensure that your home is a bit less hot, sticky and humid this summer, having the air conditioning installers pay a visit ahead of the start of summer could be one of the best things you ever do. There’s nothing like retreating to a cool couch after a fin day in the garden tanning, barbecuing or playing with the kids to end a lovely summer’s day.
In summer, you want life to be fun and fancy-free; the last thing you need is to be endlessly cleaning and tidying up when the sun is shining and the garden is calling, which is why one of the best ways to spruce up your home for summer is to simply declutter it. Get rid of the excess, curate your home so that everything in it is deliberately chosen, loved and necessary and keep chores to a minimum. A clutter-free home is like the summer version of hygge – it helps you to relax and enjoy the simplicity of summer.
Go green in the house
Green decor is great in summer because it adds a freshness to your home. So, whether you paint your kitchen cabinets green or invest in a few easy-to-care-for house plants, bring more green into your home this summer and it will feel like a refreshing oasis of calm.
Invest in your garden
Of course, your garden is perhaps even more important than your home in the summer months, so it would be a good idea to spend some time sprucing it up ahead of summer too. This year, a gazebo or canopy that you can relax under snd get some shade is going to be big, as are fairy lights to illuminate the space, and fire pits to keep the party going all night long.
Sprucing your home for summer is fun, and ensures you can all enjoy your space more, so what are you waiting for?
