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!

And that doesn’t mean running your A/C 24/7. So we’ve put together this quick tip list on how to keep your home cool. Hopefully it will help you guys and keeps your home cool!e3359b9d45607fe77fe723a3ec17ec131. Keep the sun out with curtains or shades.

If you let the sun come in it’s only going to do one thing, heat up the entire house – fast. So let’s nip that in the bud and cover up those windows! Grab some curtains or some fun bamboo shades and prevent the sun from heating up your house!

Keep that air moving in your home! The last thing you want is hot air just sitting around. Invest in a good fan because when it’s hot you’re going to be running it for long periods of time and as always, you get what you pay for. So make it count!

Do we really want that hot dryer running when it’s already heating up out there? The answer is no. No we don’t. So do your loads early before the sun really starts to heat up or at night when the sun goes down. Preferably earlier in the night though so the house has time to cool down before bed.  Stay cool out there!
