The trick is to bring the summer into your home and create an atmosphere that you like to spend time in. Here are some tips to do just that.

Get around the house and clean everything, particularly the windows.

This helps to get more light into your home and will remove the dust and grime that has developed over the colder months.

You will also help your home smell fresh. There are some great cleaners that will help to add a summery smell to your home.

Even if it isn’t that warm yet, open the windows and hear the birds chirping. This lets the fresh air and you can start to feel like it is warm and ready for you outside.

This is great in the rooms where the sun shines through the windows, since the glass will make it feel warmer than it really is.

Every now and then you will need to block the sun from the house or the night lights outside. Floral blinds are a great way to add summer into your home.

If you’re not a fan of floral, opt for bright colours and beautiful patterns to give you a change from the dark days of winter.

Prepare the outside of your home for the summer months by cleaning out the gutters. This helps to avoid any water issues in the home or expensive fixes later on.

You’ll be happier doing it during these months since the sun is out and you can spend time outside.

Plant some flowers, grow your own vegetables or just trim the hedges. You will feel more summery if you work on things outside in the garden.

This is also a great time to get your vitamin D and benefit from the fresh air. Once you’re done, spend some time out in the garden to admire your hard work.

Cutting the grass on a summer day is an excellent way to take in the fresh air. You will also be able to get rid of the jungle that the harsh winter and colder spring months caused.

You may have to start with trimming the grass first if it is very long to avoid clogging up the lawn mower. Do this once a week at least to keep your garden fresh and summery.

Redecorate your home if you’ve been putting it off. The summer months are better because of the heat – you want to spend time outside while you wait for the paint to dry.

Choose bright colours so you can make your home feel and look more summery, even when the warmer weather disappears.
