How to Transform Your Home Into a Summer Staycation Haven.

Longer days and warmer weather mean summer is just around the corner. While you might not be able to jet off to a tropical oasis for a relaxing vacation, you can enjoy summertime living right from your own home. Here are a few ways to transform your space for the ultimate summer staycation.

Revamping your bathroom is a surefire way to create those tranquil summer vibes. Tidy up your countertops and clear off the clutter. Splurge on new luxurious towels and robes. Use lavender and bergamot essential oils to create a spa ambiance, or coconut and vanilla to give the feeling of a beachside retreat.  Add candles and bath salts to complete your in-home spa.

Restyle your bedroom into a luxury escape with a few tweaks. Refresh your bedding by swapping it out with crisp linen sheets and pillowcases, and incorporate themed accessories or wall art that reflect your perfect getaway destination.

Turn your living room into a hotel lounge by sprucing it up. Replace your pillows and throws with more colorful ones, and add a brightly patterned area rug. Incorporate greenery or floral bouquets into the décor. Switch up your furniture to create a cozy seating arrangement that faces a beautiful window or French doors creating a new view. Last but not least, set up a functional minibar by choosing an area in the room to place a table or bar cart that houses glasses, shakers, stirrers, and your favorite drinks.
