Get the Most Out of the Last Days of Summer
It seems like summer flew by with the kids now already having to go back to school. There are still some warmer months about us still. Now that the kids have gone back to school you might be able to get a little bit more done around the house. So, what does that mean for you? Well if you haven’t had the chance to do any work around the house while the kids have been out of school then you’ll get your chance now as they go back to school, and the weather is still nice. We have provided some great home décor ideas for you and your family that will make your home a bit livelier for all seasons.
Add some color! The colder months are dark and a good time to snuggle up with a blanket next to the fire but with the warmer months still here there is bright sunlight shining through our windows. Make sure to open your windows while you can to let fresh air in and as you do 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 the warmer months 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 warm 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. This is even perfect as we start to fade into fall and want to enjoy colors changing. Place the table in your backyard around your garden to have the beautiful flowers surround you or colorful trees. 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 is 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 so it’s easiest to keep what is already there. This will bring down the work and cost of the project. If you decide to keep the grass, all that needs to 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 what 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 the warmer and cooler months fun and enjoyable. Get creative and increase the time spent together with your family by embarking on these projects. Your whole family will love and enjoy them throughout the year. 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.
