10 Creative Ways to Decorate Your Room in Summer
What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word “SUMMER”? I am sure your answer to this question would be Beaches, Bikinis, and Bodies(if you know what I mean).
Most of the time, we associate summer with fun and pour all of our time, attention and money into that.
One thing that is overlooked is the fact that those afternoons filled with sandy beaches and summer bodies can turn into hot, uncomfortable nights.
This is something that should be expected. Why? The summer months only exist for a quarter of the year and your room was probably not structured in a way for you to embrace those hot summer nights.
Also, having no changes made to your room all year round could be quite a bore. This Summer might just be the time for you to switch things up.
Here are a couple of creative and conducive ways to re-decorate your room in the Summer:
1. Get a Summer-Ready Bed
First of all, your bed needs to be made over. Getting a summer-ready bed could mean one of two things. It could mean making stylistic improvements and some easy adjustments to the bed. It could also mean changing the mattress altogether. Making easy adjustments could involve swapping duvets for a light cover cloth. When choosing the right type of cover cloth, you have to consider the material and color. Linen is the perfect material for the summer because it is breathable. The traditional white bedding should be your go-to color for the beddings. They stand out more in the summer sun, making your bed look cooler.
If you want to change your mattress, you should consider firmness and temperature regulation. Check out these mattress comparison tables on SleepDelivered.com at https://sleepdelivered.com/best-matresses/
2. Pick a Cool Color Palette
One way to transform the style of a room is to change its color palette. Did you know that specific colors can influence the temperature of your room? In the summertime, why not try colors on the cool side of the spectrum like blue-green and blue-based rays. These colors would make a hot room bearable. If you are renting your apartment, condo, or house it is important to make sure you obtain permission before painting. Check your lease for details or call the management company for authorization.
3. Bring the Outdoors In
Another Creative way to decorate your room for the summer is to make the outsides come inside. Bringing some natural elements like potted plants or flowers from the backyard would add life into the room.
4. Let the Light in
Sometimes, all that you have to do to bring that extra panache to your room is to open the curtains to let the light in. If you are bothered about your privacy, you could purchase some semi-sheer curtains that let the sunlight in while still offering you some level of privacy. When looking for a place to live consider how much light will come in before by checking out the property online or in person. Sites like Precondo and others offer a wealth of information about a property and can help you make the right decision.
5. Lighten the Wall Décor
Keeping the art and wall hangings in your room light to make the room free and airy would go a long way in accentuating your room for the summer.
6. Find a Fan that fits your style
You could invest in a small area fan that would match the style of your home. Displaying it on your desk or bedside table would add a nice touch.
7. Introduce Pops of Color
You can have some fun by creatively adding pops of bright color hues to the cool and neutral-colored wall of your room.
8. Add a few of-the season-accents
In your airy room, you can add a small blue throw pillow or teal art on a shelving unit to add subtle summer details to a rather neutral room.
9. Build a Flower Frame
A flower frame can add a nice touch to the wall of your room and you can create one by yourself in with the following three simple steps:
- Emptying a Frame.
- Taking some artificial flowers and pasting them on the glass of the frame.
- Closing it from the back and hanging it.
10. Remove clutter
This is might not be the most creative option for decorating your room for the summer. However, it is the most practical. You simply cannot get your room ready for summer by leaving the guitar you have not played in five years lying on the floor.
Take your room to the next level with these creative ways to decorate your room in summer and enjoy the warmth and beauty of nature on the inside all year long.
