Summer-ize your apartment with new patio furniture

Design Tips to Summer-ize Your Apartment

May 12, 2022

Summer is almost here! If you love interior design and like to switch things up based on the seasons, now is the time to bring in the brighter and more colorful summer décor into your apartment. You don’t need to completely revamp your home to make it summer worthy, either. We know not everyone has the budget or time to take on a complete Room Rescue, so here are ways you can make a big splash with a few small accents to summer-ize your apartment.

7 Easy Décor Ideas to Summer-ize Your Apartment

Patio Furniture

If you have a balcony or patio attached to your apartment, take advantage of the extra space this summer with a new patio set. Choose from wicker, rattan, wood, aluminum, steel, wrought iron, resin, or plastic furniture. Not sure which to pick? There are pros and cons of each, but ultimately it comes down to personal preference and what works best in your space. Add decorative lights to make it pop at night, too!

New Sheets

Summer is the perfect time to break out some new breathable sheets in this warmer weather. Even better are eco-friendly sheets that are naturally dyed, organic, and sustainable. You’d be surprised at just how perfect they are for keeping comfortable and adding to your summer décor!

Indoor Plants

One of the most effective ways to bring summer décor inside is with some fresh greenery. Head to the nearest nursery to stock up on lovely indoor plants in a variety of colors. With the right watering schedule and access to light, your plants will thrive in no time.


It’s not just the way things look that creates a summer vibe, but also how your home smells. Freshly cut grass, salty beach air, and fresh linens are signature summer scents that have all been turned into beautiful candles.


When it comes to summer, blankets may not be the first thing on your mind, but sometimes you want to snuggle a blanket no matter what the weather is. Swap your chunky knits for lightweight blankets that can help keep you cool to maintain maximum coziness even with your summer décor.

On a super tight budget, but still want to bring in that fresh summer vibe? Simply by a bundle of flowers from your local farmers market or grocery store and create a beautiful and aromatic table or counter centerpiece.


Bring in pops of color without the commitment simply by adding some pillows that have that summer feel. It's one of the easiest ways to switch up décor if you’re on a budget. Add pillows to your patio furniture, couch, chairs, and even your bedding to add that extra pop to summer-ize your apartment.
