Your Guide to A Summer Ready Home

With a new season, comes the annual summer festivities: neighborhood block parties, patio wine nights, and the month-long visit from the in-laws. Do these events have you pulling your hair out? Summers are meant to be stress-free and filled with memories, not burdened with last minute projects. To get your summer ready home, and start enjoying the season as soon as possible, follow this guide…


Start With The Outdoors

Let’s face it, the majority of our time is spent outdoors during the summer, so it only makes sense to start with the space that gets the most traffic–your patio. It’s the space where hilarious stories are told and all of our favorite memories are made. Be sure to keep your guest cool, calm, and collected with comfortable seating and delicious refreshments. Trust us, you’ll be thanking yourself later as you watch the good times roll!

While we spend most of our summer days enjoying nature’s landscape, it’s nice to keep the outdoor temps…well, outdoors. Do you have the right window coverings for a summer ready home?

Accidents can happen in the most unexpected ways, keep your peace of mind this summer with child-safe blinds and shades.

Summer Sleep Schedule

Yes, longer days with more sunlight is what we love most about this season, but the lack of sleep is not. Our sleep schedules pretty much go out the window when the daylight overstays its welcome. However, that doesn’t have to be the case. Prepare your bedroom with window treatments that work in your best interest. Hunter Douglas’ LightLock is a light control system that eliminates distracting light for a room darkening solution.
