Spring is on the way, and the days are starting to get a little longer and a little brighter. Spring cleans are a great thing to do around the home at this time of year, as you can feel the need to clean and declutter. But there are some other great things that you can do to brighten up the home this spring. Here are some things that you can think about doing around the house.
Touches of spring
It won’t be cost-effective or even very practical to change the decor in your home when a new season rolls around. But the good news about spring is that there are a few things that you can do in the home that are going to look good, as well as be practical. Think about the changes that happen in spring outside, and then bring that inside. For example, changing up some cushions on throws that you have in the home to lighter and brighter colors, or ones with great spring patterns can be a simple thing to do but that can make a massive difference. You could change some curtains for a lighter options, especially if you have thick, heavy, and dark curtains.
Add Plant Life
One of the best things about spring is that things start to grow again. Spring is about flowers blooming, foliage, and green grass. So why not bring in some of the outdoors inside, to bring in the look and feel of spring? Sites like With Our Aloha can deliver fresh flowers, but you could go down the houseplant route for a pop of green in the home, as well as helping to freshen and purify the air in the home.
Create a statement wall
If you can’t think about the mess that comes with redecorating, and it isn’t totally necessary at this time of year, then why not create a statement wall instead? This could be just painting one wall a different color, or by adding photos or art to a wall to make it a statement wall. You could even choose spring flower art or photos, or even shelving with faux flowers all across the wall. It can be a fun way to update the home and make it look really ready for spring.
If you are adding in some fresh flowers in the home, then they are likely to bring in some glorious springtime scents. But if you are going down the houseplant route, then it can be a nice idea to get some candles that are scented that have a fresh, fruity, and floral scent to bring in the smell of spring. You could even diffuse essential oils instead, if you’d rather avoid candles and open flames. Some of the best essential oils that would work are lavender, peppermint, and wild orange.
As you can see, just a few small changes can make a difference to your home this spring, and get you in a fresh and happy mood. What will you be looking to start with first?
