4 Tips for Planning Your Ultimate Summer Staycation

Find Your Happy Place—at Home.

Stay-at-home orders and travel restrictions may have put a damper on your summer vacation—but we’ve got the next best thing: a summer staycation. Turn your home into a relaxing oasis with these tips:

  1. Declutter. Too much clutter can actually cause stress and anxiety. So before the fun begins, organize and de-clutter high-traffic areas—mudrooms, laundry rooms, and entryways attract “stuff.” Our Oslember Storage Bench is perfect for organizing your loose ends and versatile enough for almost any room. 
  2. Host a movie night. Maybe you’ve considered hosting a movie night with family, or bingeing on the best of Netflix with your besties, but haven’t because your couch is… well, embarrassing. Don’t let a sagging sofa get in the way of spending time with the people you care about. When you decide it’s time for a staycation upgrade—we recommend the comfortable, contemporary Abbotsford 2-Piece Sectional with Chaise
  3. Stock your bar cart. There’s no better way to feel like you’re vacationing than with a stocked bar cart. Have your favorite summer cocktail ingredients on hand—or check out this list if you need some fresh ideas. Don’t have a bar cart? We can help. Our Kadinburg Bar Cart has glass shelves and high-glam appeal. You’ll feel sophisticated—plus it’s easy to store when not in use.
  4. Get creative. Take on a family DIY project, like building a treehouse or backyard swing. Or if you’re up for the challenge, turn your home into a mousetrap game like the one our team pulled off right here inside the showroom. Did you do something creatively cool during the quarantine?
