How to give your home a fresh look this summer

I don’t know about you, but I like to change my home interior from time to time. I know you might think that I am crazy, but I love to give my house a fresh look once in a while and I strongly suggest you should try it too! Why?  Just think of it, we don't like to wear the same clothes over and over again, so why shouldn't it be the same when we're talking about our home?

I know that we are living crazy times at the moment but I also know that now, more than ever we have enough time on our hands to make these changes, so if I made you curious enough, let's see what you can do in order to give your home a fresh look this summer.

Start with a big de-clutter

You won’t believe the things we gather in time, I’m telling you! I’m shocked every single time that I de-clutter and even though I always say I won’t do it again, I find myself falling into the same pattern every time.

What can I say, I love to collect pretty things! Leaving the joke aside, when a room is cluttered, it looks much smaller than it actually is, plus it looks bad too. So by throwing out everything that you don’t use, you’re making yourself a big favor.

Tip: I always say that if I didn’t use a thing in more than 8 months, then I probably don’t need it at all, so I throw it away. That doesn’t mean you should throw away good stuff that you may use in time, but you can be more selective about the objects which surround you.

New floor

Now, this might come as a surprise and it's definitely not a must, but if you never did that, then you should consider changing your floor. I know it's an expensive step, but trust me, you won't even recognize your home afterward.

Flooring is essential for any house. While some people go for the conventional styles, others often tend to experiment with it. But, if you have children, you have got to go for the right type of flooring. One of the best flooring options for a house with kids and pets is solid wood flooring. Why? Because it's durable, you have a wide range to choose from and it will give your home that luxurious look that only a wood floor can.

Give your walls a fresh look

Now, I’m a little bit obsessed with this subject. I’m always looking for new trends when it comes to the wall color, but in time I’ve learned that a simple white is more than enough to give your home that airy and sophisticated look.

Nothing too fancy, just the simple white that we all know. By painting your walls in a lighter color, you make the room look bigger, brighter and it’s like a white canvas. You can decorate it with colorful accessories that will bring the room to life. Be careful and don’t overdo!

Lighting is the key

It’s no secret that a great light fixture or lamp can improve the entire look of a room. Lighting is an integral part of good home decorating that can set certain moods. Cleverly placed lights can draw attention to a favorite piece of artwork, or be repositioned to give the room an entirely new look.

Choose the right accessories

It’s the small details that make all the difference, so don’t be afraid to decorate your home with your favourite things. Add family photos in lovely frames, add some coloured pillowcases to bring the room to life.

Fresh flowers in colourful vases, or some bigger green plants that will make you feel that you brought the outdoors inside. Everything is possible but, again, be careful and don’t overdo! Otherwise, your home will look cluttered again and you don’t want that.

These are just a few tips that help me to bring my home to life from time to time. If you have any other tips for me, don’t be shy and share them in the comment section below.
