As we look to put the long winter months behind us and hope for slightly warmer weather and less rain, it is a good idea to refresh your home ready for the new season. As spring is the season of growth and renewal, you should do the same to your home. We look at some of the best ways that you can do this.
Introduce Colour and Pattern
If you add a few touches of bold colour and patterns to your home, you can immediately brighten it up. A few accent pieces dotted around, whether it is a patterned cushion, or a bright candle or a photo frame, these detailed touches will instantly transform your home. Floral prints are naturally associated with spring but don’t go too overboard. Mix and match different patterns and textures to bring life to your home.
Bring the Outside In
There is nothing that says spring more than bringing some flowers or fresh greenery into your home. This creates a fantastic connection between the indoors and the outdoors and can make you feel more like spring has sprung. Adding plants or other living things to your home is a great way to make your home feel alive. It also creates a nice contrast between bold and soft tones to your space.
Declutter and Clean
Yes, it’s that time of the year again to clean up after a long winter of being around your fireplace. It may sound like a chore, but having a neat and tidy space will make your home look spacious, and your mind clearer from whatever clutter is around. When you organise your home, it’ll make space for things that you may want to place in that particular area and this reflects to your mental health as well. The more organised and neat everything is, you will have a clear mind that helps you think and do more. Put away anything that is not in use, such as wintery rugs and blankets, instead, try to swap this for lighter fabrics. This is also the perfect time to start cleaning your windows to take advantage of the light coming into your home.
Now is the time to change up the smells of your home as well. So, if you use air fresheners or candles to provide an interest in your home, then change them for fresh and clean scents instead of heavy ones, such as clean cotton or garden flowers. Floral, fruit and ocean-inspired scents are also perfect for bringing the freshness of the outdoors, inside! Anything that evokes a feeling of the outdoors in your home is going to be well matched for spring.
If you are feeling more adventurous then why not try a splash of new paint. Repainting a wall or room with a new colour can really provide freshness to your home that you will get to enjoy for a long time. It will make your home feel brand new and it is budget friendly.
