Sometimes we need to tweak the look of our property every now and then. For homeowners, this gives them a chance to fall in love with their homes all over again. When it comes to model homes, the need to change display home furniture every season is a must to attract more buyers.
Just like our wardrobe, our homes can also benefit from seasonal makeovers. Winter, for instance, calls for dark hues and cosy accessories which are perfect for the cold weather. During summer or spring, a lot of bright colours and minimalist styles are often adopted.
Here are some makeover ideas that are perfect for the hot weather:
1.Make it kid-friendly
Summer means children are out of school and will be at home most of the time. It also means that you’ll have a bunch of your kids and their friends running around, hanging out and probably frolicking in your pool. It’s time to put those delicate d’cor items, heavy fabrics and luxurious slipcovers back in the closet and bring out the machine-washable fabrics like cotton and linen.
2.Add a dash of outdoors inside
It’s all about bright colours and earthy elements this season. Bring some sunshine into the living room by adding a pop of yellow to your accessories. Whether it’s a couple of yellow throw pillows or a yellow vase, the effect will definitely add a touch of summer to a neutral scheme indoors. Add potted plants to bare corners to provide a natural outdoors feel as well.
3.Brighten your bedrooms and bathrooms
Interior styling is not limited to areas where guests will often frequent. It’s important for homeowners to revitalise their personal retreats as well. One of those areas in the house that needs some cheer is the bathroom. This is also one of the easiest to style. Here are some things you can do:
- Switch from drab shower curtains to bright coloured ones
- Add succulent plants in a large shell and place it on your bathroom counter
- Change those dreary towels to ones in the seasons most sought after colours: coral, yellow, light green or aqua
- Look for patterned bathroom mats
For your bedroom, get rid of those heavy quilts and use light fabrics as well. Open the windows wide and let the breeze bring in memories of past summers. Bedrooms in model homes need a fresh paint of colour and a burst of vibrant window curtains in sheer fabrics to attract potential buyers.
4.Put your outdoor areas to good use
If you have a big patio, it’s time to reinvent the look to make it summer-ready. Clear the cobwebs, and get some weather-proof furniture, if you haven’t done that yet. Bring your garden closer to you by putting potted plants near the furnishings. For an organic look, put those pots inside a basket.
