Summer is always one of the busiest seasons for entertaining – both indoors and outdoors. And let’s be honest, things can feel a little bit hectic after the busy holiday period. So with the holidays behind us and the kids back in school, what better time to give your home renovation a summer revamp?
With a little savvy editing, you can turn any old room into a bright new space that celebrates summer.
Our design experts have come up with 6 home styling tips that you can try out:
1. Revamp That Closet
Sometimes there’s just nothing like a good seasonal closet overhaul.
Isn’t it funny how something as simple as reorganising a closet can instantly make it feel like a whole new space? We assure you – a little rejigging of the closets in your home, and you’ll have your spaces feeling bigger and brighter than ever before.
Or maybe now is the time to finally put in that built-in wardrobe you’ve been dreaming about for ages now. Talk to our team at RoomFour about our built-in storage and wardrobe renovation options today.
2. Brighten Things Up With Fresh Colours
Warm weather is all about bright colours, so it’s time to incorporate them throughout your home.
Pack away your dark, heavy items for the colder months, and swap in some vibrant, light textures and colours. From your cushions to your paintings and your accent pieces – they can all easily add both a drop of colour and bring instant summer vibes.
And forget the heavy throws – they may be beautiful and cozy, but nobody needs a hot throw on the couch in the heart of our Australian summers….
Best thing of all – this is a styling tip that you can easily use throughout your entire home, to help you give every corner of the house that summertime feel.
3. Grab A Paint Brush!
If you are willing to take it on yourself, painting is one of the cheapest (and most fun!) ways to restyle a room. After all, what better way to change the atmosphere of a room than by switching up the wall colour.
To stay in line with the tune of summer, opt for some soft, light colours. Pastel colours are hot right now and are great for adding a soft note of colour. Check out some summer painting inspiration from our friends at Dulux.
If painting a whole room seems like too daunting of a task, or you just don’t want to shake your white walls, why not paint a feature wall? This means picking one wall in a room and painting it a different colour to the rest – creating a unique, decorative feature. For a few more tips on designing a feature wall, check out our recent blog.
Trust us – a splash of paint and you can take a room from feeling dreary and drab to new and fresh in an instant. Always a great summer project!
4. Add Some Delightful Greenery
Another great way to style your home for summer is by adding a touch of greenery.
Adding in some indoor palms and ferns can add a beautiful fresh and vibrant pop of green throughout your home.
Plus, the smell of fresh plants will keep you feeling connected to the outdoors, even when it’s a little too hot to be outside.
We think a new outdoor rug, some large pots and flowers and maybe even an ice bucket to keep those summer drinks cool would be the perfect touches. Or, add an outdoor chalkboard to keep the kids happy – and to keep score of those backyard cricket matches all summer long!
We hope that these creative and budget-friendly styling tips will help you brighten up your home this summer.
