Getting Your Home Ready for Summer

The cool summer nights by the fire-pit, reading a good book poolside, enjoying a drink with friends on the patio in the backyard, or smelling the fresh flowers while gardening in the front yard are a few of the joys that come with summer. We at XYZ Storage want to help you get your home all summer ready so you can enjoy it whether you are spending all summer at home or taking flights. Here are a few ways you can get your home ready this summer.


Decluttering your home may be the hardest step to getting your home summer ready, but the most worth it when you finally complete it. We as humans are surrounded by our clutter daily and it can be overwhelming at times making it very difficult to relax especially during the summer. This is why we at XYZ Storage highly recommend spending time decluttering your space so you can spend more time enjoying your summer plans and activities without having to worry about the cleanliness of your home. A good start would be to go room by room at your own pace to organize your belongings and get rid of anything that no longer serves you. For example, books, clothes, kids’ toys, blankets, kitchen utensils, tools, etc. 

Decorate Your Home

Decorating your home is a key component to helping you add summer to your home. One of the ways you can do this is by simply adding colour to your furniture pieces, linens, pillows, and tablecloths. For example, you want to lean towards brighter colours for the summertime as opposed to darker ones in the winter. Another way you can decorate your home is by introducing greenery to your home by adding flowers and plants to your kitchen table, bathrooms, bedrooms, or foyer. Simply adding plants can indeed purify your home and help improve your mood. Lastly, you can try to add some string lights to your backyard to make it more enjoyable to spend time on a nice summer night alone or with friends and family.

Tackle Your Backyard (or Balcony!)

If you enjoy entertaining, barbecuing, gardening, or just reading a good book on your comfy patio furniture it is about time to get your backyard set up this summer. To learn more about what you can do to get your backyard in tip-top shape this summer check out our blog post Getting Your Backyard Ready for Summer. For those of you that live in a condo or an apartment, you can spruce up your space in whatever way you would like to, whether that is adding a minimal number of patio pieces or flowers/plants for decoration.

Getting Everything Out of Storage

To get your home ready for summer you should probably make a trip to your self-storage unit if you haven’t already grabbed your gardening equipment or tools, patio furniture, barbeque, or summer sporting equipment. The same goes for if you have any of these tucked away in your tool shed, basement, or garage.

And when summer ends, you can put everything back in your self-storage unit just as easily as when you took it out in the first place. Looking for a self-storage unit? We at XYZ Storage have customizable and affordable storage solutions for all of your summer self-storage needs. A storage unit can serve as a temporary home for your summer patio furniture, barbeque, gardening equipment and tools, and even your summer pool floaties! They will be kept safe in our climate-controlled facilities until you need to bring them out again next year. Have questions or concerns? Please feel free to visit one of our self-storage facilities in Toronto and the GTA as one of our storage experts would be more than happy to help.

From all of us at XYZ Storage, we hope you have a safe and enjoyable summer!
