How to Transition Your Apartment from Winter to Summer

How to Transition Your Apartment from Winter to Summer

Here are a few tips for transitioning your Buffalo Apartment from Winter to Summer Life

With Buffalo’s weather finally getting warmer, it’s time to transition your Buffalo apartment or Buffalo loft from cozy winter to warm summer. Here’s how to make your apartment feel brighter and match the summertime weather.

Add some plants as some decor

More life and color in your apartment will make it look more welcoming and bright. Whether you only want to grow flowers or herbs that can be used for cooking, it’s all up to you. Some of the best indoor flowers to put in your home are violets, hydrangeas, hibiscuses, and peace lilies.  Not only will it bring life into your apartment, but it will also help with the heat. Since the plants’ roots absorb sunlight, it will make your apartment cooler than it will be if you didn’t have plants in it. Houseplants also act as air filters, which help to clean the air in your place.

Add Screens to Your Windows

Most apartments in Buffalo don’t have screens in their windows, which keeps Buffalonians from opening their window most of the time because they don’t want insects to fly into their home. Adding a temporary screen onto your window will keep those pesky insects out while still letting fresh air and warm sunlight in. Get some fresh air in there! 

Lighten the Atmosphere

Choose a bright, light color scheme for your home decor things such as your throw pillows, your bed sheets, your bed pillows, and your window curtains. People tend to decorate their apartment in Buffalo with a dark color scheme, which will absorb light, small, and uninviting. A warm, light color scheme will instantly brighten your whole apartment up and will keep it from absorbing unnecessary warmth. Bright colors will not only brighten your apartment, but will also make it look and feel more spacious.

Add Colorful Art Pieces on Your Wall

In your Buffalo loft or apartment has dark walls and you can’t paint over it, add some bright piece of artwork onto the wall. Affordable pieces can be found at garage sales or the flea market. There are a few flea markets around Buffalo where they are beautiful pieces for crazy low prices. If you can’t find a piece that matches your Buffalo apartment’s color scheme, you can print out an artwork that you like and frame it yourself.

Brighten Your Meals

Replace your dark dishes for bright, patterned plates for your everyday eating. Summertime colors will make your meals look more summer themed and will bring bright colors into your everyday life. Consider getting  cheap grill and get some nice bright veggies on there! 

Hopefully a few of these tips help you to ship your Buffalo apartment into shape for the summer! There really is no better place to live than Buffalo New York in the summertime!
