Summer is the time of year when kids are out of school, families go on vacation to other places or to visit relatives, or people simply stay put and enjoy free time in the comforts of their own home.
If you love to stay at home, but want to have more friends over during the summer, it’s the perfect time to spruce up your dining room to make it summer ready. You can make your dining room more attractive and ready for summer parties with these few quick tips:
- Create a beach-themed interior. If you love going to the beach during the summer, why not make your dining room feel beachy as well and pretend you are on a vacation? Create a beach-themed dining room by decorating the area in blue and white. Set the table with a lovely centerpiece of sand, rocks, shells, coral, and blue glass bottles. Hang pictures of the ocean and decorate with beach-inspired art and decor like anchors and beach mats.
- Freshen up your dining table with red and yellow. Warmer, brighter colors are great for depicting sunny, hot weather. You can start with yellow and red seat cushions. Then, add an attractive centerpiece vase full of blooming flowers from your garden. Complete the look with yellow or red dinner wear and linens.
- Go natural and bare. Make your dining room simple, yet elegant and ready for the hot weather. Remove heavy table cloths and replace them with either sheer covers, table runners, or nothing at all. Go bare on your table chairs and remove cushions as well. Add only a simple centerpiece to the table, so you maintain an open, clean look.
- Make the room more airy. Open the windows and room dividers and make your dining room breezy and inviting. Add light and white window treatments to let the fresh air of summer in.
