7 Exciting Ways to Spruce Up Your Home This Spring

Friday April 12, 2019

Despite a battle against allergies you’re probably facing right now, spring is still a beautiful time of the year. It inspires changes, new developments in your life, and a desire to clean!

It’s a blessing spring gives us the tendency to make things nicer, more open, and cleaner after our long hibernation through the cold and closed-off winter. But not all of us know exactly how we can spruce up our living space.

If you have the itch to tidy up your house but you can’t think of any ideas you like, read on to learn about 7 exciting elements you can add to your home this spring.

1. Mirrors

Mirrors are a quick and easy way to make almost any room in your house feel more spacious. By having multiple mirrors throughout a room, the light in the room is reflected, which makes everything feel brighter and bigger. Mirrors are also inexpensive, which makes them a great option for anyone on a budget.

2.Throws and Pillows

When it comes to your living room space, one of the easiest ways to express your style and aesthetic is through the throw blankets and pillows that you use on your sofa! When springtime hits, you can easily swap these items out for different ones. You might consider featuring a new accent colour in a room using these items or a fun, flowery pattern.

3. Plants

Not only is spring a time when there is green growing outside your window, but there can be some inside your home as well! Spring is a chance to add some new houseplants that can live inside while still getting an adequate amount of light. Flowers are also blooming so consider sprucing up any room with a vase full of store bought flowers or perhaps ones you grew yourself

4. Fresh Coat of Paint

Nothing says a new start quite like a fresh coat of paint in a room. Repainting your walls will help make a room feel brighter and cleaner, especially if the room was painted a long time ago. Repainting your walls is also an opportunity for you to try out a new colour if you want. But you have to be up for the challenge!

5. New Lighting

Another element to help revamp your home for the spring season is your lighting. The lighting of a room can do quite a lot to set the mood and tone. New designs can be added to the current fixtures that you have. Or you may want to get new fixtures installed! You can also add fun lamps to your rooms to create additional sources of light.

6. Check Up On Regular Maintenance

As you go about sprucing up your home for the spring season, you should also do some routine maintenance of your house conditions. This isn’t about style, but really for your safety!

If you find any water and mould damage from winter storms or general wear and tear, you may want to contact a restoration company. For example, All Dry USA can help and they serve communities in cities throughout the U.S. Making sure your home is at its prime is part of caring for it. Those living in states like Florida might really want to consider this tip, since your house is exposed to a lot of humidity and rain.

7. Spice Up the Storage Areas

One of the most common enemies of keeping a space clean is clutter. Although clutter is a natural phenomenon of life that can’t always be escaped, you can make it easier to hide and store your things by adding stylish and effective storage in a room. Consider colourful bins to separate items like toys or even excess clothes.

Extra Tip

If you are short of time or on a strict budget, focus on just one room, preferably on a room where you spend the most time. For example, if you spend a lot of time in the kitchen (since they are the hub of most homes) you might like to follow the tips above and also update your kitchen appliances. Even small changes, such as buying a kettle in a pretty colour, will uplift your mood and help you to get ready for the spring!

Now that spring has sprung, go and mix things up! Changing up a room and checking up on maintenance can provide a lot of benefits including improved mood, focus, and productivity!
