It's summertime in Denver and the three R's aren't just reading, 'riting and 'rithmatic. In the summer,
they refer to "reorganizing," "restyling" and
"reviving" your home. It's the perfect time to bring a summery,
comfortable feeling to your home's interior. Luckily, you don't need to redo
every room or throw out all your furniture to get a wonderful seasonal change.
Spend a weekend giving your living spaces a lighter, fresher feel. At the end,
you might even think you're on a summer vacation.
and lifestyle expert Evette Rios has some simple suggestions that can make
powerful impressions throughout your house.
the excitement and va-va-voom in your rooms by moving just a few things around.
You'll be amazed at the new looks you can create. Something as simple as changing
the angle of your couch and voila - new room! Try this scuff-proof method for
moving heavy pieces: Fold two clean towels (dirty ones can scratch floors),
place one under each end of the furniture piece, and then slide it across the
floor. This might also be the time to incorporate a few white wicker pieces,
which will add a summery touch.
some time to sort through your linen closet and remove unwanted items. Put old
or unused linens into a "giveaway" bag. Store bed linen sets inside
one of the pillowcases, and you'll never have to hunt through piles looking for
a match. All you'll have to do is grab and go. Want a closet full of freshness?
Place a few Gain dryer sheets in with your folded sheets to keep them smelling
new accessories can help to brighten up each room in your home. Turn plain
lampshades into fabulous ones by adding bright or printed linings that come to
life when you flip the switch. You might even want to swap out the art on your
walls, adding more colorful pieces that are floral or botanical. If you're
feeling really ambitious, consider painting a few walls to add a clean, fresh
look to your rooms. Try bold colors you've never had before to really change up
to get the kids involved? Turn some drab kitchen aprons into fun "cleaning
armor." Give each child his or her own apron to decorate with markers or
stickers to wear, and send the kids on their mission to dust, clean windows,
organize, etc. They'll love wearing something they decorated themselves. Don't
forget to ask their opinions on the changes you're making - you might be
surprised at their great suggestions.
you're packing away heavy clothes or quilts for the season, ensure they
maintain a fresh scent by using new Gain Original Fireworks In-Wash Scent
Booster in the wash before you store them. It's safe for use on all colors and
fabrics and the freshness lasts up to 12 weeks in storage (just in time to take
them out for the fall).
your laundry room a place you're not afraid to enter. De-clutter the room by
installing a tension rod to hang spray bottles, cleaning supplies and more. You
can also decorate the room with your kids' artwork to make it a fun space.
summer home makeover doesn't need to be expensive or time-consuming. Ambitious
projects might take a little longer, but you'll be pleased at how simple it is
to transform some of your rooms from drab to wonderfully fresh. Just don't wait
too long - summer doesn't last forever!
