Everyone’s favorite season is rapidly approaching. The sun is shining, the beach is starting to beg you to come play and the birds are chirping away trying to convince you to go outside. As much as your body and mind might be ready for summer, is your home? If you’re not sure, then use these 3 tips to help your home in the direction of summer!

1. Dust off, clean up or replace the outdoor furniture. 

If we plan on getting that beautiful, golden tan or hosting a BBQ (or two or three) this summer, we’re going to need the furniture to lend us a helping hand. Take a quick look at your outdoor furniture. How’s it looking? Do you need new cushions? Does it need to be cleaned? Or is it time to ditch it for some new furniture?

2. Bring out the marshmallows.

Get that fireplace ready for those gooey, delicious s’mores! It’s not summer unless you’re ending your nights around the fire and roasting your marshmallows for the classic summer time treat. No place to roast those marshmallows? No problem! It’s time you get that fire pit and set it up. These are easy to shop for and there’s no need to build one or lay brick!

3. Let it flow

It’s time to let the air flow through your home! Open those windows wide and let the summer breeze fill your home! This lets you keep your home cool and gives those indoor plants a little fresh air as well!

It’s a great place for the family to gather and spend the summer nights together. If you don’t have one, we’ve got three tips to help you get started. So keep reading and let’s make that fire pit happen this summer!

1. Make It Official.

First things first, find out what the rules and regulations are for a fire pit in your area. You might be in an area that has a high fire alert during the summer season which means strict laws or regulations, other areas are more relaxed. Safety first when it comes to fire and there’s no reason to risk it.

2. Built In or Portable.

After you find out what the rules are for your new fire pit it’s time to decide how you want to go about it. Do you want to build a permanent installation or do you want something you can move around and store during the off seasons? With both styles there are pros and cons. Some things to consider are price, style and size.

3. Pick Your Location.

Last, but definitely not least, you need to pick your location. This needs to be your favorite spot in your backyard. Maybe a spot with a view? Maybe a spot with lots of space? Pick your spot, set up your fire pit and then break out the marshmallows while you enjoy the summer nights around the fire.
