Read on for 5 ways to refresh your home for Spring!
Winter takes its toll on your property both inside and out! With bad weather, the chaos that is the Festive season as well as muddy boots, wet coats, damp and stuffy air! So, why not embrace the season of change and switch things up a little bit? Don’t worry, you might think that you need a huge budget and a design team at your disposal, just a bit of time, some patience and a little imagination so rest assured, you won’t need to put up those construction zone signs just yet!
Yes. It’s a job that no one enjoys doing. But sifting through years and years of junk is a job that just has to be done. Cluttered rooms are stressful and can make any room look untidy – no matter how nearly everything is put away. It’s a known fact that we all have too much stuff and getting rid of some it can really boost your mental health. It’ll also make your home look completely different! So, take a few hours and go through one room at a time, you can donate, sell or throw away any items that you no longer love.
Add some color
Spring is all about colour returning. So, make sure your home got the memo and take a little inspiration from the outside world. Add some colourful vases to your side tables, hang some colourful pictures in contrasting picture frames or add a gorgeous new rug to your dull hallway floor.
It’s time to say goodbye to all those big heavy blankets and thick throws that served us well through the winter months. You need to simply swap them for some lighter fabrics like cotton or linen and make sure you choose some lighter colors.
And don’t forget to swap your bedding too! The warmer evenings are coming and the last thing you’ll want is to be wrestling with all those blankets and heavy sheets. Swap them out for a cooler alternative and treat yourself to some flowery duvet sets.
Bring the outside in
Fresh flowers, greenery and beautiful blooms. Spring has so much to offer so why not bring some of that beauty indoors? Treat yourself to some beautiful houseplants – you can always get fake ones if you don’t have a great track record with houseplants – or fill up your vases with tulips and daffodils for a splash of color in every room.
Springtime is all about change. So, introduce some to your home. Before you go out and purchase brand new items, see what could be moved around and see what an impact it can have. That lamp from the landing might look good in the dining room, or those cushions on your bed might look nice on the sofa. Use your imagination and keep going until you find a combination you like.
