5 Apartment Decorating Ideas for Summer

Jul 06, 2017

Summer is finally here and it’s time to get your apartment into shape for the season. Timbercreek Communities has some simple and beautiful apartment decorating ideas for summer. Let’s let the sun shine in!

Lighten Up

Think of your apartment as a summer rental and see it in a whole new light. Pull back the curtains and let the light in. Replace heavy curtains with something light, sheer and breezy.  In fact, stow away anything that makes your space feel heavy or dark. This includes thick throw rugs that may be cozy in winter but feel hot and oppressive during the summer months. It’s summer - let your floors go naked!

Bring the Beach Home

You may not be able to spend every summer day at the beach, but you can give your Timbercreek home a beachy feel by displaying sea shells in a small pail or by planting small succulents in a larger shell.

Add a splash of summer colour to your table by setting out some colourful flatware. Mix and match bright tropical, floral or nautical-themed dishes and towels with your everyday plates and bowls for a fun and seasonal setting. For a simple summer centrepiece, fill a bowl with fresh, bright fruits - like oranges and lemons.

Flower Power

One of the easiest and most effective ways to add some colour and elevate the mood of any room in your home is with flowers. Fresh cut or potted flowers add a simple summertime feeling and have been proven to enhance positive emotions!

Seasonal Slipcovers

It may not be practical to have a separate set of furniture for summer and winter, but you can make if feel like you do. You can instantly change the look and feel of your living room by slipping on some striped or colourful summertime slipcovers.

Summer can feel short lived. Timbercreek hopes these simple apartment decorating ideas help you make the most of the season and keep the summer feeling going for as long it can. To find your home with Timbercreek Communities please visit our website.
