Summer Makeover Tips for Your Living Room

Summer Makeover Tips for Your Living Room

Summer time is so exciting. It automatically makes us want to change up dull things in our lives; wardrobes, makeup, even our homes! Summer home makeovers are so much fun, and you can afford to include plenty of colour and quirky elements.

These tips are perfect for one of the most important rooms in the house: your living room. I hope you find them useful!

Pick a New Colour Scheme

A new colour scheme is a simple way to update your home and make it look more summery. Think about this carefully; realistically, you probably won’t want to repaint each and every season. Picking a new colour scheme might not be the best option. If you do decide to go for it, then make sure you pick a maximum of 3 colours so that it doesn’t look too busy.

Tidy Up

There’s nothing worse than a messy, clutter home; especially in summer time! Tidy up by getting rid of things you don’t want or need. Get rid of as much clutter as you can and try to keep things minimal. You don’t even need to get rid of some things; just store them away for another time or season.

Swap Your Window Treatments

In summer, it’s nice to let in lots of light. However, you still want your privacy. Shutters can allow you your privacy while letting in light where you need it. You have lots of options; you may prefer sheer blinds. Decide how much light, privacy, and insulation you need before making a decision.

Rearrange Your Seating

We all like to see each other a little more in summer; we come out of hibernation. Rearrange your seating so that it’s more social. Make your sofas and change face each other a little more so you can have a nice coffee and natter with your friends.

Bring in Life

Bring in life in the form of plants and flowers. Choose seasonal blooms to really brighten the place up! Plants in the home have been proven to be good for us as they help to purify the air!

Create a Feature Wall

Summer is the best time to create a colorful, attractive feature wall. You can use art, photos, or even just wallpaper to make a wall stand out. Be as imaginative as you like. Plenty of sites online offer inspiration if you’re stuck!

Don’t Be Afraid of Pattern

Patterns can add depth to a room and make them look more interesting. Summer is the perfect time to experiment with pattern! You don’t need to use too much; you could just include it with your accessories. You could even pick a nice strip of patterned wallpaper to create that feature wall. Be as jazzy as you like; floral, polka dots, geometrics...whatever tickles your fancy!

Step out of your comfort zone this summer and create a room that makes you smile. It might not be everybody’s cup of tea, but you’ll feel more summery than ever before in your patterned, colourful living room!
