As we step into spring, the days get longer and the temperature finally gets warmer. After months of cold and miserable weather, many of us want to give our home a new lease of life and embrace the rebirth and renewal that spring brings. However, it can be difficult to know what changes to make in your home without it feeling like a complete renovation.
Take a look at our useful guide below on how you can give your home that breath of fresh air for spring.
Add in some bright colours
Spring brings in new colours, with the trees growing greener, and daffodils, bluebells and other flowers sporting their pops of colour. As nature becomes more colourful, why not alter your interior to reflect this change? Dark colours are great to reflect the winter mood, but spring calls for brighter and fresher colours. Swap those dark winter colours for pastels or, if you’re feeling daring, bold neon colours. Wall art, soft furnishings and even chairs can be swapped out or given a new lease of life!
Decorate with flowers
Why not bring the outside indoors and celebrate the new flowers that spring brings with it! Each room in your house can benefit from the brightness that flowers give. Daffodils and tulips are perfect for adding warmth and greenery to any room; add a stunning centrepiece to your dining table or a nightstand-friendly vase by your bed to give your home a new lease of life. With local supermarkets offering a variety of bouquets to choose from, decorating with flowers can be a relatively cheap way of adding a spring feel to your home.
Why not opt for some floral bedding to keep on the floral theme?
Use lighter fabrics
It’s time to put away the heavy faux fur throws and dark duvet covers and swap them out for lighter fabrics and furnishings. Crisp neutrals allow your bedroom to breathe and look fresher and brighter! Layering neutral colours will help your bedroom look bigger and more open. A neutral, bright bedroom is the perfect way to bring spring into your home.
Keeping plants alive during the winter months can be difficult, so replace the ones that are beyond saving with new plants and start anew! If you’re a newcomer to being a houseplant parent, it’s important to know which plants will thrive indoors, so make sure you pick the right plants. Similar to having flowers in your home, plants can help elevate a room and give it more of a springtime feel.
Switch out scatter cushions
If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to give your home an injection of spring, swapping out your scatter cushions allows for a quick refresh that takes a matter of minutes. Whether you choose more colourful cushions or something a little more neutral, swapping out your textiles is a simple way to make a room feel brand new! We suggest going for bright colours in your living areas to help bring a pop of colour and stick to neutral tones in your bedrooms to tie in with the fresh look.
