summer_in_your_apartment The most anticipated season of the year is here and, though you may be enjoying the sunny days and warm temperatures, the summer season can bring particular challenges to your apartment lifestyle. Many wonít believe with ease with which you can update the look of your apartment, and maybe even stay a little cooler in the process. Roll up your sleeves and get ready to inject cool colors and summery auras into your apartment lifestyle with the following tips. And who knows - your unit may just become the coolest hotspot among your friend-group in the process.

Brighten Up Your Decor When people hear anything about updating their decor, they immediately see dollar signs. Rather than completely overhauling your apartment for every season, make a few small updates to add a few pops of color to your classic apartment look. Bring fresh cut flowers inside for a subtle aroma and a beautiful decor item. And rather than simply shoving them in a vase, add an extra flair to your centerpiece by adding fresh-sliced fruit to the water.

Freshen Up The Air Warm temperatures can have even the cleanest kitchens harboring hard-to-stomach odors in the summer-time. Rather than simply dealing with the smell until the early fall hits, take a few moments and grind up lemon and lime peels in your sinkís garbage disposal. Not only will the acids in the citrus help to rid your sink of its offending odors, your kitchen will also reap the benefits of a subtle citrus scent, as well.Have Plenty Of Ice On Hand Nothing is worse than preparing to pour yourself a cold glass of iced tea and then realizing that you forgot the ice. Cool beverages work wonders when it comes to cooling your body down during the hottest parts of the day - and they taste great too. Whether youíve got an automatic ice dispenser, or you use old-fashioned trays, be sure to keep your freezer fully stocked.

Create A Stenciled Sign Sometimes itís the simplest touches that make the biggest impact on your decor. This simple DIY sign from Snap Creativity could be just the added touch youíre looking for. Simply choose a bright color palette and a fun slogan and youíre well on your way to a seasonally updated decor.
