Fresh summer breeze, drapes dancing in front of your open windows and birds chirping in the distance. A sigh of relief that you finally get a break and a chance to relax. You can bring that vacation feel into your home this summer so you can feel this way even during day to day life with these few tips.
1. Cabinet refacing
What better way to brighten up your home with bright new cabinets? Cabinet refacing brings a whole new kitchen into your home with half of the cost. White cabinets are a must have for any updated kitchen this year. White breathes life into your home, keeping everything simple and clean.
Cabinet Cures has a huge variety of colors and door styles to fit your exact taste to create your dream kitchen. Best part is the process only takes a few days!
2. Add nature
Placing a beautiful bowl of fruit in a bowl in the middle of your counter is a great way to, not only decorate, but keep you eating healthy snacks rather than that candy bar sitting in your drawer.
Other options if fruit isn’t your cup of tea is to go to your local nature park, or even your back yard, pluck some flowers, ferns, or really any plant and place them on a vase as a center piece. Bringing nature indoors lightens your mood and brings summer indoors in a simple way.
3. Add some tunes
Who doesn’t love cooking with some tunes? Adding a small Ipod dock, or any aux speakers into your kitchen can make even the most simple of meals more fun. Not only does it make cooking alone more fun, most family gatherings and parties end up in the kitchen, so keep everyone dancing and having a great time with some nice tunes.
4. Herb garden
Even though this could go into the ‘add nature; category, I feel this should be its own category because it is more useful than just a decoration. Having fresh herbs is not only cheaper, but when placed on a window sill or in a DIY “herb wall”, it also looks beautiful. Growing your own herbs is not only more cost effective in the long run, you know they have no harsh pesticides or chemicals.
5. Natural decor
Bringing in light woods, natural fibers, and white ceramic pottery gives a natural “earthy” feel to any home.
