Summer is the perfect time to give you home a fresh makeover. You don’t have to take on a complete renovation, but a few simple tips can help home owners create that casual, carefree environment that signals the more relaxed days of summer have arrived. With a beautiful home decor, including bright, fresh colors, you’ll be able to make summer living even more enjoyable.
To give your home that summer look, consider adding a splash of color. You can create a beautiful piece for over a mantle by simply wrapping a canvas print over a frame. A few staples along the back will keep the canvas in place and the bright colors will bring a touch of brightness to the entire room.
Of course, you can also add color in the accessories you use. For example, a colorful lamp base, bright throw pillows and rugs, or even a simple floral arrangement for your table can all be excellent touches to your summer decor.
If you have pillows or throws that are dark colors or heavy materials, consider replacing them with something lighter and brighter. You’ll certainly want to keep a lightweight throw on hand, as the air-conditioned environment can sometimes get chilly, however, choose light fabrics with a bright summery pattern.
If you’re planning on selling your home, it’s important to make sure that you home reflects a comfortable and welcoming feeling. Home buyers often make a buying decision based on their first impression; it’s essential that you make sure it’s a positive one. This means, if your home is on the market during the summer, you’ll certainly want to create a bright, pleasant decor. While you might not see the need, especially since few decorative pieces actually add to your home value, these simple steps can sometimes make the difference in whether or not you receive a purchase offer. It’s all about creating a pleasant look in a comfortable environment.
