8 Perfect Summer Decoration Ideas
Citrus fruits are a perfect way to capture a summery vibe in a house's kitchen or living room. Although it may seem much too simple at first, one bowl of bright oranges or lemons can go a long way for your home's overall atmosphere.
2. Linen Bedding
Over the winter you need heavier bedding to stay warm throughout those long, dark nights. Now that it's warmer out, swap out your winter bedding for linen pillowcases and sheets that give a more lighthearted and breezy look. Neutral toned linens can be especially effective if you aren't sure what color would fit your bedroom best.
Summer means flowers and colors. Add flowers anywhere in the house, and not just physical flowers. Painting and pictures count too! A good set of flowers can make any room appear happier, brighter, and warmer. Flowers are extra effective if placed in a room with white walls or furniture.
4. Bar Cart
With the temperature outside finally breaking through the 60's and 70's you'll be spending much more time outside with friends and family. To match this, get your hands on a weatherproof bar cart and place it on the patio or backyard. These can be stocked with whatever you need to get a party started and also serve as a welcoming figure for any visitors.
Let your windows shine in the warmer seasons. Make sure to thoroughly clean any windows that let a lot of sunlight in. This is bound to give your house a brighter ambience. As an extra optional step, if you have any heavy curtains that are in the way, opt for lighter ones (or just no curtains at all).
6. Outdoor Furniture
Take your furniture outdoors! A group of chairs, benches, or couches with a central table in the backyard can serve as anything from a breakfast room to a reading environment. When the weather is nice out, it's much more relaxing to sprawl out on an outdoor couch than an indoor one.
7. Ceiling Fan
If you're looking for a decoration that's not only attractive but also useful, try a ceiling fan on for size. These come in all shapes, sizes, and colors so there's bound to be one that fits your tastes. If you already have one, chances are you haven't used it since last summer so make sure to dust off and clean the fan blades.
8. Fire Pit
Although it's always bright during the summer days, it'll always get dark and sometimes even chilly at night. Ready your fire pit for these occasions. It's perfect for s'mores, stargazing, and catching up with friends.
