Summer is here and I know that you can feel it already. Everyone’s planning to go out to spend vacation either out of town or just within the metro. But just in case that you will choose to stay at home for the summer, you should make your home “summer ready” to feel the summer vibe.
Just recently, Electrolux Philippines, a global leader in home/professional appliances launched the Make Your Home Summer Ready campaign featuring their latest products just in time for the summer season which you will know about later on as you read further.
During the launch, Electrolux Philippines shared some practical tips to make their home ready for the summer season. Electrolux Make Your Home Summer Ready guest speaker Amina Aranaz-Alunan, founder, executive director and teacher of SoFA Design Institute, and Creative Director of fashion accessories and bag label ARANÁZ, shared her ideas on how to give homes a summer touch. Her tips included accessorizing with items that have a hint of the sea or beach or adding a woven piece.
Another great way to give homes a summer makeover would be to bring a touch of nature. Aranaz described that moms can bring in tropical throw pillows, bedding, tropical indoor plants or even botanical wallpaper! She also suggested some stylish DIY projects that moms can do with the family like framing a tropical print, creating a bar cart or summer vignette.
Meanwhile, Janice Villanueva, successful mompreneur and founder of Mommy Mundo, a community of moms dedicated to making motherhood easier, shared her Summer-Ready Checklist, with hacks on keeping the home clean and clutter-free and fun summer activities for the family.
For the kitchen, Villanueva talked about the importance of cleaning out the refrigerator, including all compartments and interiors, throwing out expiring food and restocking on fresh food, including a mix of different kinds of foods that kids will like.
She advised moms to put these in easy to access containers so the kids (if age appropriate) can help themselves when they’re hungry. She also reminded moms to sit down with the helpers to plan a menu since kids will be home all day – and to make sure they have healthy morning snacks and a filling merienda so kids don’t grab junk food in between.
When it comes to cooking, homemakers should make sure to clean the kitchen stove top and oven to make sure things are running properly. Cooking or baking sessions with the kids are also a great summer activity that teaches them a new skill while allowing moms to bond with them.
Hot and humid weather also means more allergens so moms should make sure to vacuum sofas, curtains, the rugs and even the bed and stuffed animals! Moms can even teach the kids to vacuum. “It’s actually a lot of fun for them and you can also reward them for doing chores,” Villanueva said.
Aside from providing how to Make Your Home Summer Ready tips, Like what I have said earlier, Electrolux also launched their latest products that can help moms achieve that summer home look.
