2020 has been the year of the homebody! Many of us have been spending a lot of time at home recently and might be getting tired of looking at the same old spaces. We could all use a little refresh right about now to help energize our lives make our homes feel new. Thankfully, it won’t take much to refresh your Long Beach home. Try our simple ideas for a summer home spruce-up!
Cleanse the Kitchen
The kitchen is one of the most used and occupied rooms of the house. One of the best ways to rejuvenate the kitchen is to declutter and clean all the surfaces. Wash the windows and let that the sun come shining in. After all your hard work, why not reward yourself with a bouquet of flowers to bring the outdoors in?
Shop your Home
Take a walk around your home and look at your decorative items. What pieces of art, furniture, decor or, even houseplants could work in other places around your home for a fresh new look? Don’t forget to look in your storage areas for treasures you’ve forgotten about.
Swapping out your old throw pillows for new ones is one of the easiest and fastest ways to give new life to your sofa. There are a myriad of styles and colors to suit any taste and if you’re looking for a little spark, try mixing styles and colors for a new combination. Use pillow inserts and look for pillow covers if you’d like to change them up seasonal. Perhaps some vibrant citrus colors for summer?
Make a Statement… Wall
Looking for a fun summer project that lets your imagination really take over? Choose a wall in your home that you’d like to transform into a work of art. Paint the wall with a fresh coat of paint, then try stenciling or hand painting geometric shapes or other playful patterns over your new canvas. Look for inspiration everywhere – from art books and children’s books to the simple shapes and lines already in your home.
For the Love of Plants
With all the amazing benefits of house plants, it’s hard to have too much greenery in your home. They purify the air and simply bring a smile to our face. Just give them water, light, and love and they will brighten and refresh any space. If you already have houseplants, just dusting off their leaves regularly will help them to thrive.
