    Get Your Property Summer-Ready with these Clever Seasonal Decorating Ideas

    Whether you’re selling your home or just want to make a refreshing seasonal update, these decorating ideas will get your property summer-ready in no time.

    As temperatures soar, you may be inspired to breathe new life into your living space. Unsure where to begin? A few little tweaks are all you need to transform your abode into a welcoming seasonal retreat.

    Read on for some helpful tips to get your property summer-ready and put you in a sunny state of mind.

    1. Start with a quick decluttering.

    It isn’t the most enjoyable task, but clearing out those useless papers and trinkets is always a good idea. Decluttering is an easy way to make your home feel airy and summer-ready in no time. Grab a basket or a box, go around your house, and gather up all of the excess papers, old magazines, greeting cards, knickknacks, and other stuff that’s filling up your rooms. You’ll be surprised by how much more spacious it feels.

    2. Rearrange your décor.

    Shake things up by moving furniture around or adding new pieces to bring a fresh vibe to your home. Mirrors give the illusion of more space, while opulent accessories like silver frames and crystal vases add a dash of luxury.

    3. Add some texture.

    Think decorative boxes made of natural fibers like rattan, wicker wastebaskets, vases crafted from blown glass, and picture frames made of shells. The nubby texture of boucle is a hot summer trend this year. If a boucle sofa or chair seems like too much, start with an ottoman or some cushions. The coolness of stone is a natural choice to balance the heat of summer. To further enhance its tactile quality, look for objects with a ribbed effect or carvings, such as scalloped planters or serving bowls.

    4. Focus on lighting.

    Turning on lamps when it’s dark outside can create a cozy atmosphere, but when the sun is shining, open those curtains and let the light filter in! Natural light helps brighten the space and gives rooms a larger, airier feel.

    5. Store your winter upholstery.

    A simple way to bring the summer season indoors is by replacing heavy winter drapes with curtains of thinner materials such as cotton, silk, and linen, which also do a great job of keeping room temperatures cool. Swap out ornate, jewel-tone pillows in favor of cushions and lightweight throws in vibrant seasonal shades like sunshine yellow, lime green, and hot pink.

    6. Install some ceiling fans.

    If you want to cool your home and reap some energy savings too, look to ceiling fans. According to estimates by the U.S. Department of Energy, you can raise the thermostat four degrees in the summer with no loss of comfort and recoup up to 30 percent on your energy bills. To fully realize the savings, get in the habit of turning off the ceiling fan when no one is in the room.

    7. Lighten up your linens.

    Remove heavy winter bedding and replace it with crisp linen, cotton, or bamboo. Plain white sheets and towels are always a good choice to make a room feel clean and fresh. Pastel shades of blue, lilac, or green are also cooling and they’re just right for that summertime ambiance.

    8. Go green.

    Beautiful flowers and green plants add life to any interior space. Florals create a warm, welcoming environment and they smell great, too. Consider placing some tall palm trees in the corners of the room and fresh-cut flowers in pretty vases on the coffee table and dining table. Smaller arrangements look great placed on nightstands or end tables.

    9. Tidy up the exterior.

    If you have a yard, make sure your landscaping is in tip-top shape. That means pulling weeds, putting down mulch, and trimming the grass and shrubbery. Place some pretty potted plants on the porch, deck, and patio to add a dose of cheerful summer color. Don’t forget routine outdoor maintenance tasks, such as cleaning light fixtures, replacing burned-out bulbs, repairing cracks in the walkway or patio, and adding a fresh coat of paint to the front door.

    Getting your property summer-ready doesn’t have to be expensive or laborious. Tidy up and declutter, make some updates, and you’re ready to enjoy the season!
