The sun is out, and summer is well and truly underway. But, has your home caught up with the season? If you’ve failed to get the summer look, don’t worry, we’re here to help with five simple tips to give your home a thorough spring clean.
Hoovering, dusting and a proper wipe down should be the basis of any clean, but to really give your home the summer look, adding a burst of colour is essential.
Add some greenery
Greenery was Pantone’s 2017 Colour of the Year, and it isn’t going away. The start of summer has seen the colour become even more popular, with feature walls, murals and house plants featuring plenty of green, coming to the fore this season.
Add some colour with a stylish rug
A bright, bold coloured rug can completely transform your living room for summer, with the colour working well with the added natural light. This colour will help accentuate your furnishings, and give the living room a fresh new look, that has the summer feel all over.
Re-jig your shelves
After they’ve been dusted and cleaned, it’s time to shift things around on your shelves and furniture. Look at your accessories and their positioning, and see what can go and what can be added. Less is more in summer, and a de-clutter can go a long way towards brightening up your home.
Blankets, cushions and bedding
Replacing your blankets, cushions and bedding is a relatively low expense, but the results can give your home a whole new look. The addition of new colours and materials can instantly make your home look more stylish and summery, adding freshness to the whole home.
Paint and wallpaper
Giving your walls a face lift is the most obvious way to revitalise your living room, and paint and wallpaper can come at reasonable rates. Bold, bright colours or light colours are excellent summer options as they reflect natural light, making your room look bigger. Both paint and wallpaper can be purchased at a reasonable price, and the renewed look can add a new look to the whole room.
These simple ideas are ideal for people working on a budget this summer, with the low costs connected to each.
