Temperatures around the country are heating up and that can only mean one thing – summer is here! With warmer months ahead, it’s important to transition your home for the season. We put together some ideas to help you get prepared this year.
1. Get your closet organized.
We can all agree seasonal changes are the perfect time to start organizing, but this year why not challenge yourself to make a capsule wardrobe? By having only 10 to 20 staple clothing items, you can seriously cut down on time searching for an outfit, and add more space in the closet.
Check out this great guide from blogger A Return to Simplicity for creating a 10-item capsule wardrobe!
2. Create a summer atmosphere.
Simple ways to welcome the new season include opening the blinds every day and adding a fresh, summer-inspired scent to your home. Another idea is to decorate with pops of color with new couch pillows, flowers and potted plants, or some of our bright and fun Fabric Drawers.
3. Make your home kid-friendly.
Summertime means the kids will be home from school for a few months, which can turn an organized home upside down. Instead of the kids running amok in the house, keep them entertained and organized with our KidSpace products.
4. Add storage for summer equipment.
Whether you can spend the summer near the beach or camping with the family, it’s important to create a space to store everything that comes with these activities. Move cumbersome items like surfboards, coolers, folding chairs and camping equipment into the garage or storage shed.
