How To Make Your Home Summer Ready


As summer approaches, it’s the perfect time to start preparing your home for the warm weather. At EVO, we know how important creating a comfortable and inviting space for the sunny season is. It is summer. Of course, you’re planning to host outdoor gatherings, entertainment, and relaxing retreats. Preparing your apartment for summer can make a big difference. Here are some tips to help you make your home summer-ready and enjoy all the season offers.

Storing Winter and Spring Items, Bringing out Summer Essentials

Start by gathering all your winter clothing, accessories, and décor. For a streamlined organization process, utilize your apartment’s walk-in closet and community storage rooms. Safely pack away winter decorations in labeled bins. This will make it easier to find them next year and keep them in good condition.

It’s time to transform your space and add summer touches. Bring out lightweight clothing and store them in easily accessible walk-in closet areas. Rotate your wardrobe to make your favorite summer outfits front and center.

Shop Local

Supporting local businesses is a great way to enhance your summer living experience. St. Pete offers many local spots to enjoy, such as the panoramic water and city views, which is perfect for evening strolls, and shops where you can shop for unique summer décor. Check out the St Petersburg Saturday Morning Market for fresh produce and handmade goods to make your summer even more special.

Other Apartment Living Essentials

Make the most of your apartment’s outdoor amenities to enhance your summer apartment living experience. The 12,000 sq. ft. pool deck is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the sun. Take advantage of the poolside bar, cabanas, barbecue grills, outdoor dining, and lounge areas. These amenities are ideal for socializing and enjoying warm weather.

There are many things you can do at home in the summer. Your private open-air balcony with glass railings offers a great space to unwind. Set up a cozy seating area with cushions and a small table to enjoy morning coffee or evening drinks while taking in the view.
