Turn Your Home into a Summer Destination

If you don’t have vacation plans or if your summer trip seems too far away then why not turn your home into an everyday personal getaway? Check out these creative and fun ideas that will transform your home into a summer destination of its own!


Create a Cozy Atmosphere

You can makeover both the indoor and outdoor features of your home so you can experience a relaxing atmosphere on a daily basis. Your outdoor decor can be revitalized with a porch swing, firepit or even a simple fan to cool off in warmer weather. The indoors can also be addressed with a new air conditioner, light-filtering shades or light blankets. You can even make the transition from inside to outside more resort-like with the inclusion of sliding doors or plantation shutters. A combination of these features will bring a vacation-like feel to your entire home.


Incorporate Unused Furniture

Some of your furniture may get to the point of being outgrown or unfitting for their intended room. Instead of investing in huge projects, you can make the most of these already-purchased items and bring a warm, sunny life to your home. For example, you can turn a table into an outdoor stove, wine bottles into tiki torches and whiskey barrels into coffee tables. Many DIY websites feature innovative projects like these that can turn items that may not serve their original purpose into much-appreciated summer staples.


Consider a Child’s Perspective

If you have children then you know that they enjoy a vacation just as much as you do. In order for you to have a relaxing experience at your revamped home then you will need to consider new activities and options for them as well. Consider investing in or creating your own outdoor playground that will encourage your kids not only to have fun with their friends outdoors, but to also be more active. You can redo the inside of your home too by gathering sheets and blankets to create a cozy fort. This option lets children express their creativity without a huge mess!


Take on an Outdoor Project

What comes to mind when you think about the perfect vacation? Maybe you envision a large pool with a diving board, beautiful fountain or relaxing gazebo. All of these projects can in fact be taken on before summer rolls around. You can add some fun to the bigger tasks by inviting family and friends over to create a unique bonding experience. You can also look at the tasks as exercise and, since you’re outside, you can work on your tan in the process. All of the hard work will be more than worthwhile when you are enjoying your new outdoor additions all summer.


Travelling, major expenses and the many little details of a vacation can be avoided this summer. Instead of stressing over a short trip, you can take on your own projects that will turn your home into the perfect summer vacation destination for you and your friends and family.
