Summer is already here, even if the really warm temperatures are not quite yet! Have you made your apartment ready for the season? If not, here are some easy ways to brighten up your apartment this summer and make it more inviting!
Swap Out Your Rugs
Summer is all about bright and bold colours, and this year, yellows, oranges, and vibrant floral designs are trending. To give your apartment an instant colour boost, we recommend swapping out your rugs for something lighter, brighter and bolder. This doesn’t mean that you have to break the bank to do it. Stores like IKEA, HomeSense and Walmart offer cost-effective options for every season.
Add Potted Plants Around Your Space
Bring nature indoors this summer with some potted plants. Just head on over to your local garden center and see which ready-made containers peak your interests. If you have a bit of a green thumb, you can even make your own. Some favourite apartment-loving plants to showcase in your place this summer include geraniums, ivy, potato vine, sweet alyssum, trailing verbena, trailing bacopa, petunias, and cosmos. Just be sure to keep them near a window that gets a good dose of sunshine for most of the day.
Swap Out Your Blinds
Now that winter’s over, it’s time to bask in those long days of sunshine. And the best way to let the light in is to swap out those thick blackout blinds with some light sheer instead. It will brighten up your entire apartment and can look really cute or modern, depending on the fabric you choose.
Freshen Up The Balcony
If you have an outdoor space, adding some little touches can go a long way. Décor like wicker chairs, summery pillows, small lanterns, hanging baskets, twinkle lights, and artificial turf can quickly transform a rather dull space into one where you can lounge out on those warm summer days and nights.
Add A Mural To A White Wall
By placing removable adhesive wall art to an otherwise big empty wall space, you can turn your apartment into the summery-style beach house. There are lots of great options to choose from that will brighten up your apartment this summer and make it more cheery to hang out in. Whether you add a painting by a local artist, or a stick-on quote that speaks to you, it will instantly change the look of the room!
