Refresh your home this summer with these 5 easy tips 

Summertime is the perfect time to give your home a much-needed refresh. Whether you’re looking for an easy, hassle-free makeover or a complete overhaul, there are plenty of ways to spruce up your space without breaking the bank. Let’s explore five simple tips that can help you add a touch of summer sunshine to your home!

Add some greenery 

Nothing says “summertime” like some beautiful greenery. Plants have the power to bring life and energy into any room—plus, they’re great for filtering and purifying the air in your home. If you don’t have a green thumb, fear not! You can find low-maintenance plants that require minimal effort but still provide an aesthetically pleasing look. Some great options include succulents, snake plants, and aloe vera. Read more about indoor plants here.

Make it smell good 

A few drops of essential oil can go a long way when it comes to sprucing up your home. Essential oils are known for their aromatherapy benefits — they can help relieve stress and promote relaxation —and they come in a variety of fragrances such as lavender, eucalyptus, peppermint, lemongrass, and more. Add a few drops here and there around your house for an instant air freshener that will also help create a calming atmosphere.

Bring out the colour 

Adding colour is one of the easiest ways to give your home an instant facelift. If you don’t want to commit to painting walls or furnishing with new pieces just yet, consider buying some colourful throw pillows or blankets instead. You could even hang some artwork that features bright colours — this is especially effective if you live in an apartment or rental where painting isn’t allowed! Bright colours often evoke feelings of happiness and joy — perfect for welcoming in the summer months!                                                                                                                                                                                                               

Decorate with contrasting textiles 

Mixing different textures adds visual interest and depth to any room. A soft velvet sofa paired with textured linen curtains creates a stunning contrast that will draw eyes from all over the room. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different materials — different types of fabrics can work together beautifully if used correctly! Natural textiles are popular and sustainable, check out Wellbeing’s article about embracing organic materials for more ideas. Get creative with it; contrasting textures will definitely add character and personality to any space. 

Declutter & organise 

The summer months are often busy, filled with activities outside the house — but the hot weather can take its toll, making it ideal for air-conditioned decluttering and organising indoors! Take advantage of this season by sorting through all those items you no longer need or use (clothes, accessories, books etc.), then donate or sell what you don’t want any more so someone else can put it good use while freeing up valuable space in your own home. It’s amazing how much better our homes feel when we free them from clutter! 

Refreshing your home doesn’t have to be complicated; simple changes like adding plants or changing up textiles can make all the difference when it comes to giving your space an updated look and feel. These tips won’t break the bank either – so why not get started today? With these five easy tips on hand, you’ll be able to enjoy a refreshed home this summer without too much effort – now what could be better than that?
