Summer Is Almost Here

It’s starting to be that time of year again where the kids are almost out of school and pools will soon be full. Needless to say, summer is just about here! So, what does that mean for you? Well, the house needs to be in shape for some summer fun. We have provided some great summer home décor ideas to get your home ready for the season that will soon be here.

Add some color! Winter is cold and dark and a good time to snuggle up with a blanket next to the fire but now that summer is here there is bright sunlight shining through our windows. As you start opening your windows to let fresh air in, think about what color you want to make pop in each room of the house. This will make your home lively and give it that little something that summer calls for. This doesn’t have to be something expensive just a little bit of flowers here and a color matching pillow there. It will bring it together to form a beautiful pop in your home!

Everyone loves the summer sun and being outdoors so this year set up a picnic table. This way you and your family can enjoy summer fun together in the great outdoors as the sun is setting or for a good fresh lunch. Place the table in your backyard around your garden to have the beautiful flowers surround you. Find the perfect table cover and some plates that pop to set it all up for a cute getaway for your family time.

Make a fire pit to sit around and gaze at the stars! This a relatively simple and easy to do. Pick where in your backyard would be the best place to put it. Then figure how big you want the area surrounding the fire pit to be and if you’d like grass, sand, or rock around it. Once you decide where you would like the project you can then begin construction. Most people have grass in their backyards and so it’s easiest to keep what is already there. This will bring down the work and cost of the project. So, if you decide to keep the grass, all that must be done is to cut out a hole from the ground of where you want your pit. Make sure to dig it a little bigger than you want so that the heat doesn’t kill the surrounding grass. Then get some stones and build your pit.

These are a few ideas that will help make summer fun and enjoyable. Get creative this summer and increase the time spent together with your family by embarking on these projects. Your whole family will love and enjoy them throughout the summer. So, bring a pop of color to your home, get a picnic table your backyard, and build a pit to star gaze with the family. Here at Handler Homes, we want you to love the inside and outside or your home.
