With spring in full swing and summer right around the corner, it’s time to spruce up your home to let the outdoors in. These four helpful tips will bring a light airiness into your home and invite a welcome blending of indoor and outdoor spaces. 


#1. Let There be Light! 

With days lasting longer, there’s more time for entertaining, and brightening up your living space helps create a seamless transition from indoor spaces to outdoor areas. Adding a transparent screen door to your front or back porch not only allows in more light, but invites the breeze from outside. If you are fortunate enough to have front and back doors across from each other inside the home, consider getting two screens to add a cross breeze to your home. If the weather gets too hot and you need to use the air conditioning simply swap the screen for a glass panel in the doors to keep the light in and the hot air out. 


#2. Add a Pop of Color

Spring and summer in the natural world brings with them a bounty of color, and adding a few bright touches to your living spaces can freshen up your rooms without breaking the bank. Simple updates like adding a few colorful throw pillows to the couch or bed or laying down a new accent rug leading to the patio can add whimsy and fun. Choose bright colors and busy designs to liven things up and draw the eye to your new accent pieces. 


#3. Bring the Outdoors In

Living plants are not only beautiful indoors, but they are said to boost mood, increase mental health, and promote feelings of calmness and serenity as well. Consider a tree that will thrive indoors year-round such as the Fiddle Leaf Fig, or a shade-loving fern to add the energy that only living things can to your home. 

Placing potted plants around doorways can help to create an easy transition from indoors to outdoors and vice versa, and hanging plants from the ceiling or placing draping vines along high shelves, can add the illusion of increased space by drawing the gaze upward. 


#4. Increase Functionality and Space for Activities with a Murphy Bed

At Wallbeds “n” More, we specialize in maximizing your home’s space no matter what the season, and we can help you pick out the perfect piece of furniture to add functionality for those bright spring days and long summer nights. 

If you have children out of school for the summer, a customizable Murphy bed in their bedroom can easily fold up into the wall to enhance floor space and add an instant play room (not to mention adding storage capacity if you choose to customize the unit with add-on piers). Select from different shelves, cabinets, bookcases or drawers to help with organization and storage of summer necessities like beach towels and swimsuits.

Not only will the playroom have dual function as the child’s bedroom, essentially doubling their space, but it can also be a great way to give kids their own special area for all those late night sleepovers once school is no longer in session! 

Don’t need a playroom? Adding a wall bed with a desk can give you the luxury of using your work-from-home space as an office when needed, but also provide room to invite guests to stay the night when visitors come to call. After long, summer barbecues or movie nights on the lawn, you’ll have an instant guest suite ready for use when anyone wants to sleep over rather than driving home late at night.
