Summer’s still here and the sun’s shining but, let’s be honest…does your home look a little bit tired? The bright light really magnifies every imperfection – but don’t panic! You can create the right ‘feel quickly.- with a bit of creativity.

After all,  when your home looks and functions better, you do too – so it’s well worth giving it a quick overhaul.


Create the right ‘feel’ without breaking the bank

Your first priority is to get everything fresh, bright and clean by making the space right and, yes, losing the clutter!   


Rearrange your furniture 

It’s amazing what a quick change around of your furniture can achieve – and there’s a lot to be said for a little Feng Shui.  Try to think about how the light works in your rooms in different seasons and find ways to maximize it, wherever you can. 

It’s not time, just yet, to ‘think ‘cozy’ – so create clear paths through your rooms to allow views of the outside.  Open the windows to get some fresh air – and give them a clean inside and out so they let in every ray of sunshine.


Invest in a great rug

Is your floor covering looking a bit worn – and does it drain the light from your room when the weather’s better? In that case, it’s important to think about how to choose a rug that resolves that.


If you invest in something bold and colorful, it can really change the space – with a minimum of effort. Because it’s just one key piece, it shouldn’t break the bank – and you’ll definitely get a lot of brightness for your buck!  


Spruce up your tiling

Yes, really.  It’s amazing how transformation a little bit of new grouting can be.  It can give your bathroom a completely fresh look – for a really small outlay. And if you contact an expert, like Groutsmith Tulsa they’ll make sure you get a really professional finish.


Paint your walls

If you give your walls a quick repaint it can really lift and change the feeling of your space for the season.  


Choose a lovely sunny color like yellow or orange or something fresh and crisp like pale blue or green. Or you could hang some beautiful wallpaper on one wall – maybe even a hanging – it will freshen the room and give it some focus..

Dye your curtains

Have you got an old pair of curtains in a neutral shade or ones you stopped using because they got faded? Why not dye them a lovely fresh color to give your whole room an instant lift and glow? 


It’s easy, quick and effective and dyes are readily available in any DIY store or supermarket nowadays.  And you just pop the mix straight into your washing machine, along with the curtains; it’s so easy to do – why not give it a go?


We hope this has given you a few good ideas for freshening up your home this summer – and improving your life.  With a little bit of know how and a lot of imagination you really can make your home shine – just like the season.
