On our last blog, we offered a few ideas for how to prepare your Smith Mountain Lake home for the busy, playful summer season while the weather is still keeping us inside most days. Here are a few more ideas for how to improve the atmosphere of your home just in time for company.
Bring the Outside In
Spring is the time for planting and preparing the garden, but don’t forget that house plants can add a freshness and life to your interior spaces. Put a few easily maintained plants in the kitchen and living areas to bring the outside in.
Focus some attention on making the front entrance as attractive as it’s ever been with some large planters filled with a mix of plants, a new doormat and new paint where needed.
Light It Up
Lighting can be one of a home’s best features – if it works. Take some time to replace dim or dead bulbs around the exterior and interior of the home.
Real Air Freshener
Scents can be the most appealing part of a space or the biggest turnoff. Let the fresh air in on a nice spring day by opening windows and circulating the air with fans for as long as possible.
