Decorating Your Summer Vacation Home

JULY 20, 2016

5 Considerations for Decorating Your Summer Vacation Home

If you have a summer home or a vacation home that you use throughout the year, you likely look forward to every moment you get to spend in it.  It’s your retreat, your home away from home, your happy place… it’s perfect in just about every way. While it may not be the place you spend most of your year, how you decorate your summer vacation home is a major factor on how you feel when you escape there. Of course, the thought of having to decorate a second home so far away can be daunting for anyone.  Thanks to Decorist, your vacation home decorating project can be completed quickly and efficiently.  For now, we’d like to offer 5 ideas for you to consider when getting ready for your summer home decorating project.


1. Go With Sturdy

Many people think that since a home isn’t lived in every day, the furniture will not undergo much stress.  That’s really not the case.  Dust can gather for weeks or months and rooms can become extremely hot or cold if no temperature control is active.  Make sure the furniture you add can withstand some extremes and some heavy duty cleaning.


2. Go With Enduring

Even though vacation home decorating is made easy by Decorist, this is not something that anyone wants to do on an annual basis.  Therefore, you may want to consider against going overly trendy with your approach and stick with a look that will last.


3. Go With Affordable

You don’t want to spend an enormous amount of money on your summer home decorating if you’re only going to be at that home for a few weeks per year.  Put the high-level furniture and accessories in your full-time home so you can appreciate them more often.


4. Go With Replaceable

One of the potential problems with a summer home is that you may not always be aware that something has gone wrong.  If a pipe bursts, it could be weeks or months before you realize it.  Therefore, you should complete your vacation home decorating project with items that can be replaced seamlessly so you don’t have to redo an entire room.


5. Go With Comfortable

In the end, it's all about comfort. One of the benefits of a nicely decorated summer home is that it is so warm, inviting and comforting for everyone who spends time there. 

If you’re unsure of how to go about decorating your summer home decorating, you have come to the right place.  Decorist offers online interior design services that provide you with a dedicated designer who works with you and provides guidance throughout this process.  You can set your budget and rest assured that we’ll keep that in mind with you as we work to make your vision come to life.  Get started today!
