Spring has arrived and while you’re waiting for the weather to get a little warmer, why not start by bringing a little spring into your home?
After the long, dark winter days, what better way to prepare for a fresh new season than to give the home a spring makeover? Here, you’ll discover the best ways to bring a little Spring into your home this season.
Change the colour scheme
One of the easiest, yet most dramatic ways to add spring to your home is to change the colour scheme. Yellows, light blues and bright greens all work especially well at creating a fresh, inviting and invigorating atmosphere.
Painting the entire home may be a little overenthusiastic but changing just the colour in one room is definitely doable. Aim to focus on the lounge and kitchen as these are the two rooms you tend to use the most.
Add faux flowers
Flowers are a large part of the spring theme, so it makes sense to add some to your home. If you don’t fancy the maintenance that comes with fresh flowers, you can always opt for artificial ones.
Artificial flowers look just like the real thing, only they never need to be watered. So, if you have a tendency to kill off any plants and flowers you’re tasked with looking after, artificial ones could be the answer! You may even find a dried wreath great for adding a seasonal effect. You can buy excellent quality artificial flowers these days which will really add that spring touch to the home.
Add a spring scent
Of course, it’s not all about how the home looks. To really give the living space a spring feel, you might also want to focus on its scent. If you do buy artificial flowers for example, you could spray them with a watered-down floral essential oil. There’s also a wide range of spring themed air fresheners and candles you can invest in. So, take a look at the numerous spring scents available and choose one to best match your home.
Giving the home a spring scent as well as a spring cosmetic overhaul, will really help you to achieve maximum effect. As you can see, it’s easy to update the home to change with the seasons. It doesn’t matter how large your budget is, there’s always at least one idea you can take advantage of.
