With the abundance of spring chill and rain this year, it’s hard to wrap our heads around the fact that summer is almost here. But, believe it or not, the unofficial start of the season is THIS coming Monday! Now’s the time to create a summer ready home so you can truly relax and enjoy all that the Milwaukee area has to offer in the summertime. Here are 4 ways you can get started…
1. Tackle THAT Project
Every homeowner has THAT project…the one they’ve been talking about forever but haven’t started. Right now is the perfect time to dive in and get it done. And we can help you in so many ways. Whether you need fabrics for one small spot, or maybe you’re ready for a whole room makeover, our team would love to design with you.
Have you been dreaming forever about finding the right window treatments for your sliding glass doors or french doors? We have so many options that will provide the style and function you’re longing for in your home.
2. Get Set to Entertain
You can’t have a summer ready home without being set to entertain. One of the best parts of the season is being able to relax on the patio with family and friends. So, make sure you have ample seating for all your guests, enough tables for refreshments, and a few stylish touches that make the space your own.
And don’t forget about your bathroom. It sees a lot more action when you have visitors and overnight guests. Aside from ensuring it’s tidy and stocked, consider light and privacy. Window blinds are perfect for creating an atmosphere of gorgeous comfort.
3. Help Ensure Safety
In a few short weeks, school will be out, and your kids will be home much more than usual. A summer ready home should be a safe one. Now’s a great time to take a moment to evaluate the safety of your home. Do you have furniture and TVs anchored? Did you change your smoke alarm batteries? When is your next home fire drill with your family?
And here’s another safety measure: Make sure you have child-safe blinds and shades throughout your whole home. Cordless window coverings are best, but we do have cord-safe alternatives if you absolutely need them.
4. Sleep Oh-So Well
Have you noticed the sun waking up earlier and earlier these days? By June, it’ll be up around 5:00am! Chances are you and your kids don’t want to be up then. Everyone needs their sleep–especially with summertime’s later bedtimes and exhausting adventures. So, create bedrooms that are sanctuaries for sleep. Consider having a docking station for devices in the living room or kitchen and refresh the bedding.
What’s the best way to ensure high-quality sleep? Darkness. Hunter Douglas has amazing light control systems for room darkening and blackout. Recently released, their LightLockTM system uses side channels to completely block light. And with motorization, you can enjoy sleep-inducing darkness at the touch of a button!
