Everyone knows that summer is the best time of the year. Those long, warm days; the clear blue skies; the sense that anything is possible and that all is right with the world…it’s a season that you can’t help but love. But to enjoy summer to the max, you’ll need to make sure that your home is set up to receive all its sweet gifts. Let’s take a look at some simple actions for your home that’ll get it lined up to enjoy the sunny months.
Get into the Zone
During the chilly months, it’s all about those dark hues, the ones that allow us to enter that sleepy, relaxed state of mind. When it comes to spring and summer, we want to be surrounded by colours that reflect the energy, excitement, and life of the seasons. So that means plenty of yellows and other light tones! An easy way to brighten up the home is to change your pillow covers. With barely any effort at all, you’ll have a house that looks like what summer should be.
Make it Comfortable
We tend to think of summer as an endlessly relaxing season. And while this is true to a degree, it’ll only be the case if we take a few steps to make our homes comfortable. If your home is too hot, then you’re going to get tired of the season pretty quickly! As such, make sure your heating & air units are in full working condition before the peak temperatures arrive. If it’s in good condition, then you’ll always be able to keep cool in your home, no matter how high the temperatures outside may be. You can also keep your home cool by limiting the amount of sunlight that enters the home during the hottest period of the day.
Outdoor Entertainment and Comfort
You’re going to be inside your home some of the time during summer, but, with a bit of luck, you’ll spend the majority of your time in the outdoors. There’s nothing better than spending long days under a clear blue sky! To make sure your yard is able to provide the space you need to have a good time, look at adding a table and comfortable chairs. The final piece of the jigsaw will be the barbecue, which will hopefully be used again and again over the next few months.
Bring the Outdoors In
While you’ll want to keep the inside of your home cool, you won’t be able to cut off the outdoors altogether. Indeed, you’ll only need to keep the heat out when the temperatures hit their peak. For all the other times of the day, focus on letting the summer sunshine permeate your home. You can do this by opening your windows, keeping the blinds open, keeping plants in the home – though be mindful to keep any unwanted bugs in the home away. If you do these things, it’ll feel like you’re living outside all throughout the summer months. Perfect!
