7 Fast And Easy Summer Decorating Ideas For Any Budget

Summer decorating should add freshness to​ your​ home, not bog you​ down with more projects during an​ already busy season. Here are 11 of​ The Budget Decorator’s top easy, fast and​ cheap summer decorating ideas.

1. if​ you​ want to​ add color to​ a​ room fast, paint is​ a​ great option. to​ save time and​ money however, try just painting the focal wall in​ a​ room. in​ most average rooms, you​ can paint just one wall in​ less than an​ hour!

2. Instead of​ sewing up new pillow covers and​ tablecloths, try using no sew techniques instead. Pillows can be wrapped in​ a​ piece of​ unfinished fabric on​ the diagonal like a​ present, and​ wrapped with decorative ribbon​ to​ secure it. Use duct tape to​ put a​ temporary hem in​ flat sheets or​ older tablecloths to​ make them fit your​ end tables and​ breakfast nooks. Once you​ have those tables covered, use cardboard boxes pushed under the tables to​ hide the kids toys and​ books and​ flip flops, but keep them handy. The floor length tablecloths will hide the storage area.

3. Take a​ box around the room and​ pick up all your​ knick knacks and​ collectibles. Now replace just three of​ your​ favorite items or​ collections. you​ will appreciate the less cluttered look, and​ the decrease in​ dusting chores as​ well!

4. if​ you​ love fresh flowers in​ your​ home, but hate the time and​ expense of​ changing the arrangements, find a​ sunny spot in​ your​ yard and​ toss out some sunflower seeds! Many varieties leave no pollen on​ your​ tables, are foolproof​ to​ grow, make your​ yard look great, and​ can last up to​ 10 days in​ a​ vase…all for​ the cost of​ a​ packet of​ seed!

5. Take down your​ layered window treatments and​ pick up your​ area rugs for​ a​ cool, clean look for​ summer. Be sure to​ leave mini blinds or​ sheers on​ your​ windows for​ privacy and​ light control.

6. Clean the glass in​ all areas for​ your​ home! The shiny surfaces in​ your​ home reflect light and​ sparkle, both contribute to​ a​ fresh summer look. Don’t forget your​ tv screens, kitchen appliances, and​ even picture frame glass. Try this​ one technique, and​ see if​ your​ rooms don’t look brighter and​ cheerier, for​ no more cost that an​ little effort a​ few pennies of​ glass cleaner or​ vinegar!

7. Finally, mix up your​ décor a​ bit for​ a​ fresh take on​ the rooms you’ve spent so much time in​ these winter months! Move around some furniture, borrow and​ lend pieces from other rooms. Use clear strings of​ holiday light over the top of​ cabinets for​ sparkle. Bring out your​ good china and​ hang it​ on​ the wall as​ art. Put your​ toaster or​ bread machine under the cabinets for​ a​ cleaner look. Feel free to​ take down some wall art and​ store it​ for​ next fall. Paint your​ aging dining set a​ bright white.

Whatever you​ do to​ bring the summer season​ into your​ homes, make sure that you​ pick a​ couple of​ ideas from this​ list, and​ give them a​ try. They are fast, easy and​ cheap, what could you​ lose?
