Whether you are looking to completely redecorate some rooms in your home or just spruce up what you have with something fresh for the summer season, there are plenty of easy ways to brighten up your home now that summer is here. Check out these tips below to refresh the look of your home this summer.
Refresh a small powder room by painting an accent wall a bright summery color. Try a matte teal or pale yellow to offset the other white or cream-colored walls. Accessorize the bathroom with a matching soap dispenser and new towels. If you have any wall-worthy paintings from your kids, consider framing their artwork and hanging it on the accent wall.
Add a pop of color to your sunroom, back patio or foyer by adding accent pillows to the furniture in each respective area. Grab some coral, yellow or green throw pillows for the sunroom and foyer. Get weatherproof pillows for your outside furniture.
If you are able to go to the farmer’s market, pick up fresh flowers for your home. Add a large vase of flowers to your entryway, your kitchen island and your dinner table. Fresh flowers really bring in color and fresh scent to make your home feel clean and welcoming.
If your home’s bedrooms have dark curtains or heavy drapes, try refreshing their look with something lighter. Add light-colored curtains to drape over your windows or try making a window treatment with light, beach home-like fabrics, such as linen.
Feeling adventurous? Sand and repaint a piece of furniture! It could be an old desk or dresser or a chair or table. Sand off the old finish from the piece of furniture and clean well. Then, paint a bright color or a chic, clean eggshell white. Allow to dry and it will surely brighten up the room it was in before.
Hopefully, some of these tips will help give you a fresh look for summer or just give you something new and cheery to look at if you’re stuck at home. Have fun! We’d love to see your projects!
