4 simple and inexpensive ways to spruce up your home for Spring
Spring is just a month away and already the temperature is starting to warm up across the country. After a winter hibernation, there is nothing more energising than dusting off the cobwebs, letting in the sunshine and refreshing your home.
Here are 4 simple ways to add fresh spring style to your home.
Bring the freshness of Spring in your bedroom
Bedrooms can start to feel a little jaded and lifeless after the winter months and Spring is the perfect time to treat yourself to new bedding. Not only will new bedding bring a sense of freshness and vitality to a bedroom, but you can also choose bed linens that introduce colour and pattern.
If the furniture is dark and oppressive, consider the option for painting with chalk paint. This method won’t damage the wood and you can easily restore the furniture later on if you wish, and the muted hues for chalk paint will lift the furniture and also make a bedroom feel more spacious than it is.
Liven things up with flowers
With the abundance of greenery making an appearance in the garden, it’s so easy to freshen up any room in a home with an arrangement of foliage, spring flowers, or a simple arrangement of freshly cut blossoms.
If you don’t have a green thumb or are not a fan of houseplants, a simple glass jar or vase filled with fresh foliage from the garden will work wonders in a bathroom or kitchen. Browse your garden for interesting leaves that will add texture and interest to a windowsill or countertop.
Add a splash of colour
One of the easiest ways to add colour to a room is with colourful cushions. Whether your room is decorated in a single colour, two colours, or three colours, nothing could be easier than adding a few interesting cushions. And when it comes to choosing cushions to add to a room you can shop around for plain colours or patterned cushions to add even more interest.
Refresh your spring design
If you feel that rooms are starting to feel stale and boring, perhaps because they have looked the same for many years, rearranging furniture won’t cost anything and it’s a super-easy way to update a room and have it feeling brand new.
Take all the furniture out of the room – and this is a good time to give it a good cleaning – before deciding on what to put back and where. You can also assess what’s in the room and leave out pieces that can be used elsewhere, or given a makeover before being put back.
Spring is a time of renewal and we all want the freshness outdoors to be reflected in our interiors. But that doesn’t mean you have to make drastic changes to your home. Sometimes it’s only a few changes here and there that can make a big difference.
