5 Easy Ways to Simplify Your Home!
As summer ends, it’s the perfect time to start thinking about getting the kids in back into school mode, and if you do not have kids this is a great time of year to get your home simplified for the fall & holiday season coming up.
We have come up with 5 easy ways to simplify your space just in time for the end of summer!
1. DECLUTTER & ORGANIZE
Start by decluttering your space and getting rid of unnecessary items. We all know that summertime can be a busy time of year and we tend to forget about decluttering & organizing our homes during this time.
We suggest organizing your belongings into designated storage areas, utilizing shelves, baskets, and storage containers to keep everything tidy and easily accessible.
This is also a great time to donate anything you no longer use or need.
2. CREATE A FUNCTIONAL STUDY AREA
For those of you that have kids or even just work from home. This is a great time to set up a designated study area for kids or yourself to focus on work.
Choose a quiet corner of your home that will have good lighting, add a comfortable chair, desk if you don’t have already and be sure to get the essentials supplies like stationery and a calendar to stay organized.

3. UTILIZE MULTI-PURPOSE FURNITURE
Go for furniture pieces that serve multiple functions.
Consider side tables, coffee tables and ottomans with hidden storage in them to help store items like extra blankets and pillows that still allow for its original use.
Or modular sofas that can be a sectional or rearranged to pull apart to provide more conversational seating for when guests are over.
4. EMBRACE NEUTRAL TONES
Incorporate neutral colors in your décor to create a serene and calming environment.
Neutral tones not only provide a timeless appeal but also give a sense of spaciousness and simplicity.
We suggest having neutral colored sofas and chairs and drapery. That way you can add in color with your art and accessories, that way you can change out the smaller décor with the different seasons.
This is also a good time to swap out bedding for something cozier as the temperatures begin to drop.
5. USE NATURAL ELEMENTS
Incorporate elements of nature, such as indoor plants or natural materials like wood and stone, to add a touch of tranquility and freshness to your home.
By following these tips and tricks, you can create a more organized, efficient, and serene living space to transition smoothly from the summer season to back-to-school mode.
