Spruce Up for Summer: Ways to Keep Your Home Looking Great All Season

Keeping your house looking great all year is a challenge. Home interiors often take a hit during the summer months, when heat and humidity wreak havoc on painted walls, dark carpets, and wooden floors. And an untidy home can also have an impact on your personal well-being and energy levels. So how can you keep your home feeling cool and fresh all season? Here are some tips to spruce up your house for the summer!

Let in more light

One of the best ways to keep your house looking great is to let in more natural sunlight. During the summer months, you can increase the amount of light in your home even further. You could choose to up your curtains. Curtains that are lined or treated with a UV coating will protect your home from the UV rays while still letting in plenty of light. If you enjoy the privacy of curtains but still want more light, you can also try using blinds.

Clean and organize your space

You don’t have to be an expert to know that a clean and organized home is always going to look better than one that’s filled with clutter. And it’s true for more than just aesthetics, too. Having a clean and tidy home can actually have a big impact on your energy levels. When your home is clean and organized, you have more time to focus on the things that really matter to you. You can also avoid the stress that comes with a messy home, as well as the health consequences that can often go with it. Without dust and cobwebs, a clean and tidy home can also help to protect your furnishings. You can clean up your carpets and rugs, too—especially if they’re dark or light-coloured. If the heat doesn’t make you too lethargic, consider making that “spring cleaning” a summer activity!

Get some plants

Plants add life and beauty to any room. They can also have a big impact on your health, increasing feelings of happiness and lowering stress levels. Plants are also great for keeping your home cool. Many of them thrive in high humidity and will be healthier with better air quality. At the same time, plants can help to remove harmful toxins from your air, like formaldehyde and benzene. There are plenty of plants to choose from, so you can find one that suits the look and feel of your home. Many plants are easy to care for, meaning you don’t have to be a gardening expert. But if you do end up developing a green thumb, consider attending a floristry workshop to maximize your new skills!

Let in more light, clean and organize your space, refresh your walls, get some plants, and use new scents to keep your home smelling fresh. These discussed tips and more are surefire ways to make your home the beautiful, welcoming space it always is even as the hot, lazy summer months rollover your space. It’s important to make sure everything in your home is working for you.

  1. I need advice on how to talk to property managers... I am renting for the first time since my divorce and 4 years of home ownership. Most of the rental ads I look at require filling out forms where they ask for rental references. This is my first time renting my own place, I am also moving to a new state and starting a new job. I just got divorced and sold my half of the house to my ex, so I will have some savings. I wrote a letter to PM a week ago, briefly explaining my situation, but I didn't get anything else from them, just a request to send pictures of the room. I really don't want to lie about my situation. I don't think working remotely will help either. But moving day is coming soon. I'll be staying with a local friend for a month, but finding a place to live will be critical. So, given my situation, any advice or recommendations? How would you react if you were dealing with someone like me?
