Wave goodbye to the tired looking, ageing decor and say hello to a brighter and newly uplifted home that is bursting with colour, design and comfort. Pick and choose the ideas that are relevant to your home or simple go all out and give them all a try this summer. You’d be surprised at how very simple some of them are!
A Greener Garden
When your garden looks fresh, green and luscious there is nothing more appealing to passers-by and visitors. If your grass tends to struggle in the hot weather then it might need some extra tender loving care to prevent it from turning into a straw like texture. Invest in some reputable lawn seed and you will soon notice your lawn flourish into a more glorious green colour. This will make your entire backyard look healthier through and through; plant some greenery around pathways and corners in order to create the perfect frame for your garden too.
A Handy Herb Garden
Not only is a herb garden an extremely trendy element to have in your garden at the moment, but it is also extremely eco-friendly. Growing your own herbs instead of buying them at the store reduces waste and your carbon footprint. Imagine cooking up a storm and then nipping into the back garden to pick out some fresh mint, thyme or rosemary for your summer dishes. Your food will taste even more exquisite and the herb garden will be the perfect centrepiece for your newly improved backyard.
A Clever Kitchen
Your kitchen is arguably the place in which you spend most of your time in the evenings and at the weekends. It is one of the most sociable areas within the home and it allows you to be creative and relax all at the same time. Whether you are an avid cook or not your kitchen might benefit from a handful of tweaks, which will improve its overall condition. Use fresh and natural ingredients such as lemon juice and vinegar to clean your surfaces instead of toxic chemicals; your stainless steel taps and surfaces will be shiner and your white tiles will be brighter.
A Clean Closet
They say that a clear closet equals a clear mind, so why not have a little throwing out session to relieve your stresses and strains. Your closet might be overflowing with clothing and items that you hardly ever use anymore, so spend a day emptying everything out. Be ruthless and don’t be afraid to part with belongings you have had for a long time. If they don’t serve any purpose then what’s the use in having them? You might even be able to make some money online by selling clothing, shoes or other accessories that are still of a high quality.
A Blissful Bedroom
Your bedroom should be the most relaxing room in your home and now that your closet is all cleared out, you can start making some more adjustments. Make sure your bed sheets are soft and comfortable; invest in scented candles to help you drift off to sleep blissfully. These small additions to your bedroom are bound to work wonders for you. Ensure that the temperature is just right for you too. Sleeping in an environment that is too hot or too cold will prevent you from getting the good night’s sleep you deserve.
A Sparkling Sitting Room
Your lounge should always have a hint of your own personal style nestled within it. You are always tempted to copy the home interior magazines verbatim and recreate the styles in your own home. Copying creative ideas is always risky because you can tend lose your own sense of style within it. Make some changes in your sitting room that truly reflect your personality and tastes instead of recreating a high fashion look from a magazine or Instagram post. Use personal pictures to bring it to life and make your own accessories to enhance the rustic vibe. As long as you aren’t afraid to be a little quirky with your designs you will soon see a huge improvement in the comfort of your living room.
A Gleaming Garage
You don’t often think of your garage as an epic element of your home; it is a place where you store rusting tools, old bikes and discarded cardboard boxes from various deliveries over the years. Why not spruce up your garage a little bit and make it a more organised and presentable space? There many storage solutions online that are bound to spark your inspiration and help you to upgrade your garage into a gleaming asset of your home.
Revamping your home and giving it a little spruce up is always something that crosses your mind from time to time. Now that the weather is warmer outside and the sun is shining, what better time than to tick all of these ideas off your to do list? Even if some of them seem a little outlandish for you, why not give them a try? A little touch goes a long way and you will soon have a fresher and more vibrant home which is bursting with your personality. From gloriously green gardens to sumptuous and sparkling sitting rooms, your home will be uplifted in a flash.
