Living room refreshed for summer with new window treatments and plants

With summer in full swing, now is the perfect time to change up your home for a breezier look and bring a rejuvenating feel to the space. You might not be able to travel to your dream summer location just yet, but you can still achieve the easy summertime living feel with a few simple changes.

Here are a few ways to easily refresh your home for the summer season!

Paint the Walls

It sounds simple, but a new coat of paint can make a huge difference. Think bright, light, and airy. Painting will update any room and make it feel clean and bright for the season!

Purchase Some Plants

Bring nature inside with some well-placed plants. They will add a fresh touch to your space and are known to help filter the air around us. Some studies have even found that plants can help boost productivity and your mood.

Go bold with a leafy palm or quiet with tiny succulents. If you don’t have a green thumb, try air plants—they don’t require much care and look great tucked into a bookshelf or in a bowl on a table. Be careful to research which type of plants you bring into your home, as some are toxic to pets.

Replace Your Window Treatments

If your window shades are old, outdated, frayed, or dirty consider investing in new window treatments. New curtains in mixed patterns are all the rage with designers nowadays, but shades can be functional and less work. Look for the new cordless shades that will elevate any room without breaking the bank.

Deep Clean and Declutter

Take time to declutter bookshelves and tables or minimize your knickknacks on display. Dust books and other items to give them a little fresh sparkle. Or, hit the stores for a few unique décor items that will update your current assortment.

Scheduling a deep cleaning inside and having the windows washed are also simple home improvements that can provide an instant boost and refresh to your home!
