Summer is the perfect seasonÂ for spending warm evenings outside,Â hosting get-togethers with friends, and enjoying the longer days. What better way to take advantage of the long days and abundant natural lightÂ than in your own home?
Here are 5 simple summer home dÃ©cor tips that can instantly brighten and transform your living spaces.
Make a neutral room visually interesting by adding small, colorful details.
Try placingÂ a bright flower arrangementÂ on the coffee table, putting eye-catching throw pillows on the couch, or settingÂ a bowl of oranges and bananas on the kitchen counter.
2. Swap Out Dark Furniture for White
BrownÂ or black couches, tables, and other furnishings can make a room seem darker â€” and smaller. Open up your living spaces by adding white furniture. If you have curtainsÂ on your windows, consider replacing them with lighter sheer coverings to let in more natural light.
If youâ€™re hosting a get-together at your home this summer, impress your guests with bright, summery place settings.
Consider placingÂ brightly coloredÂ plates or napkins on the table, then adding a matching vaseÂ filled with fresh flowers or votives filled with unscented candles.
4. Bring Summer Blossoms Indoors
Thereâ€™s no better way to welcomeÂ summer into your homeÂ than by bringingÂ inÂ freshly picked flowers. Place vibrantÂ bouquets throughout your home, includingÂ end tables in the bedrooms or in the middleÂ of a shelf, for a fresh look and pleasant smell.
Setting a new doormat, or one that has a bright, summery theme, outsideÂ your front door isÂ the perfectÂ way to welcome guests into your home.
Helpful tip for home sellers: A new, clean welcome mat also creates a great first impression for potential home buyers.
