Summer is here! Look out for lazy days, barbecues, and summer fireworks displays. Learn how to take it easy this summer and relax more by turning your home into a peaceful retreat. Below are five rules to follow to make it happen.
1. Decluttering Everyday
Sure, we said lazy days are here, but keeping up with a little bit of housework and decluttering every day will make going away easier and less stressful. For example, simply placing things back as you go about your day can help reduce the amount of work you need to do around your home before going on vacation. In the bedroom, try to keep your nightstand tidy with the bare essentials. This will allow you to go to bed easier and have a more restful night of sleep.
2. Going with a Staycation
Make the most of your home by going on a staycation. Creating a peaceful space in your bedroom can help you stay in and save some money. A weekend of restoration in your bedroom could be all you need to enjoy your summer just a little bit more.
3. Streamline your Wardrobe
Reducing your wardrobe is the perfect cure if you feel like you have nothing to wear. With a more relaxed summer mood, you can limit how often you shop and find time to streamline your wardrobe. Streamlining is a great way to make packing for vacations easier. You could even try living out of your suitcase for a couple of weeks to see what your favorite pieces are, see what you can live without, or to help you refine your personal style.
Whether it’s eating a decadent dessert in bed, sleeping in on weekend mornings, a movie night with the family, or reading to your heart’s content, take the time to indulge in your favorite treats and hobbies. Summer is a great time to enjoy everything around us. Make this a habit in your bedroom and you’ll have a better summer.
5. Try a New Décor
Summer is also a great time to try a new style. Beach and nautical themes are go-to styles when infusing summer into your home. Trying to let more light in and extending your living area are also popular. If you have a balcony attached to your bedroom, try sprucing this area up so you have a place to enjoy a nighttime beverage looking out at the sunset; we can’t think of a better way to end the day. Create a beach retreat in your bedroom, without leaving the comfort of your home, by adding in cool shades of blue and natural materials like wood, thick yarn, or roped baskets. Don’t go overboard or else your bedroom will feel too cluttered.
