It may be part way through the summer season already, but that’s no reason to put off your summer redecorating a whole year. If you had plans to upgrade some of your decor for the season, you still have time to do it and enjoy it. Summer decorating is light-hearted and fun, plus can help transform your space to have the perfect vibes for backyard shindigs, family barbecues, or pool parties. Here are a few redecorating tips for any budget, or level of commitment that you can accomplish before the summer is over.
Inject color wherever you can
Summer decor means pops of bright, vibrant color and fun patterns. Adding colorful accents, like throw pillows on outdoor seating, a patterned outdoor rug, bright placemats on patio sets, or even colorful flowers in your garden, can help achieve the fun, summery feeling. For evening decor, string some colored lights (bonus points if they’re shaped like flowers or something summer-inspired) up against your fence or trellis for a boho backyard aesthetic. Save the neutral colors for fall and winter, and have some fun picking bright, bold colors.
Resurface drab concrete
Whether your concrete flooring is indoors in your basement, in the garage, or outdoors as a front walkway or back patio, you can upgrade its look without completely renovating and tearing it out. Resurface your concrete floor with epoxy flooring Toronto for a trendy, stylish look. This long lasting finish also protects your floor from scratches, chips, and any weather damage. You can choose the color scheme for your epoxy floor so it matches the current décor, or adds a pop of color.
Stain your deck
The same concept applies to your wooden deck as it would to a concrete patio or walkway: upgrade the look of it with a wood stain that also helps protect it from the elements. It’s a fairly easy project to do yourself, plus is budget-friendly and won’t take longer than a weekend maximum to finish. The result is a deck that looks brand new, plus it makes the entirety of the house look more polished, and well maintained.
Add something to every room
Keep the whole house on trend and up to date with seasonal decor that can be easily stored when the seasons change. Each room should have at least one piece that rotates out per season, whether that’s hand towels in the bathroom, tea towels in the kitchen, a season-inspired duvet cover for the bedroom, seasonal flowers in the hallway, or simply summer scented candles that can go in any room. There are plenty of knickknacks you can find in stores like Marshalls, and Target, that would also add a pop of summer to any room, so don’t be afraid to get creative here.
Furnish your patio
Hot days and warm nights means plenty of time spent on the patio enjoying the summer air, but it makes it difficult to do without any patio furniture. Maybe you have old furniture you wanted to upgrade, or haven’t ventured into outdoor furniture yet at all, but going the remainder of the summer without a seating area is just wrong. Invest in some good loungers, or create a full seating area for entertaining.
