Imagine walking through your front door. Windows are open letting that light breeze and fresh air into your home. You set your groceries down on your counter, and you have a sigh of relief. You had a wonderful day, about to cook dinner, and your bright kitchen and home keeps you in a great mood.
If that isn’t what you feel this summer, it is time for a change.
Here are some budget friendly tips on bringing summer into your home.
- Reface Your Cabinets

2. Decorate with nature
Place bright red apples, bananas, or really any bright fruit (That you also enjoy eating) in a large bowl in the middle of your counter or dining room table. Or you can go to your local nature park and pluck fresh flowers in a variety of colors! Summer is all about nature being in full bloom, and bringing these indoors can brighten everyone’s mood.
3.Add a small – portable – stereo
Say goodbye to sitting in your car waiting for your favorite song to end. Keep the music going while cooking dinner (You can even dance if you want to!). This can make even cooking simple meals fun. Most parties and family gatherings end up in the kitchen, so why not keep the party rolling no matter where your guests are gathering?
4. Grow fresh Herbs
This almost fits in the “decorate with nature” category, but it is also more functional. There are a lot of DIY tutorials on how to rig up an herb wall with some simple mason jars or you can even place them on your window sill.
5. Go for natural décor
Keep things fresh and simple with light woods, white ceramics, and natural fibers.
