There are plenty of easy and inexpensive ways to bring the cheerful, colorful, and airy summer vibes into your apartment home. Try incorporating some of our ideas below into your home today!

Freshen with Flowers and Plants

One of the best ways to freshen up your apartment for the summertime is to bring the outdoors in! Choose vibrant, colorful flowers to brighten up your space, or a plant to infuse your apartment with some greenery. There’s nothing better than seeing and smelling nature in your home to get you excited for the warm weather. Just be sure to place your plants near sunlight and water them accordingly! If keeping a plant alive isn’t your thing, try a trendy succulent!

Add Color into Your Home

Summer is the perfect time to add some fun colors into your home. Take a walk on one of our beautiful walking paths and be inspired by the bright blue sky and the fresh, green grass to help make your apartment more cheerful and vibrant. Add color into your home with fun throw pillows in your living room, vibrant towels in the bathroom, and fun accessories throughout your apartment. All of these ideas are a fun and inexpensive way to show off your personal style. Don’t forget to put your heavier throw blankets away until winter, and replace them with lighter, softer blankets.

Add an Herb Garden to Your Kitchen

Don’t forget about your kitchen when you’re breathing life into your apartment! Whether you put them in a planter, mount them on your wall, or hang them in your window, adding herbs into your home will not only be a beautiful summer touch, but your food will taste great too. This tip is great for the DIY enthusiast who is looking for an easy and fun summer project to work on!

Lighten up Your Bedding

Your bedding should change with the season to keep you comfortable all year long. Your winter bedding should be heavier and darker than your summer bedding, to help keep you warm during the cold winter months. Pack up your heavy bedding and invest in a lighter, cheerful summer comforter. Bring the summertime into your bedroom with lighter fabrics and a vibrant, colorful pattern, like a fun floral or interesting geometric pattern.

Embrace Natural Light

Draw back your curtains and let the sunshine in! With the longer days of summer, enjoy the extra sunlight by rearranging your furniture so that it is closer to the windows, letting everyone enjoy the view outside. Create a cozy space where you can soak in the natural light while curled up with a glass of wine or a good book. Not only does natural light bring a cheerful energy into the room, but it will also help you save money on your electric bill.

Don’t Forget About Your Outdoor Space

The warm weather won’t stick around forever, be sure to enjoy the sweet summertime by spending every moment you can outdoors! If you have a private balcony or patio in your apartment home, be sure to follow the same tips above to keep your space inviting. Try adding some plants, bright accessories, and a welcome mat to make your balcony or patio an enjoyable place to relax.


While it may be a tedious task, decluttering your home is a simple way to have your apartment feeling like new. Clutter in your home can make it feel airless and uninviting. Begin organizing desktops, bookshelves, and other surfaces where piles tend to accumulate and reevaluate how much of that clutter you really need in your apartment home. You will be surprised by how decluttering can bring a sense of renewal into your apartment.
