Freshening Your Home for the Arrival of Spring

There is no better way to say goodbye to the doom and gloom of winter and embrace the life and colour of spring than by freshening up your home. Spring is a much brighter, vibrant and happier time of the year and your home should reflect this.

Not only will this help you and your family to feel happier and more energised, but it will also impress any visitors and help them to feel comfortable. Revitalising through decorating can also be a fun activity to do with the kids.

Spring cleaning
Firstly, you should spring clean the entire home. This is a great way to reduce clutter and provide you the opportunity to get rid of items that you no longer need. Not only will this drastically improve the look and feel of your house, but it can also help to clear your head and reduce stress.

Next, you will want to make some decorative changes to reflect the change in season. This does not necessarily have to involve changing the colour of every single wall (although it certainly could); as there are many other smaller changes that you could make that will have a huge impact.

Replacing the rugs with lighter colours (think yellows, oranges, purples etc) can transform a room and requires little effort. Similarly, replacing the curtains with fresher and lighter colours can have a similar effect. Made to measure curtains look fantastic and provide much greater privacy and insulation (it can still be chilly in spring!) – These are best ordered from specialists, like Direct Blinds.

Other small ways to reinvigorate the home include buying new sheets for the bedroom, replacing current artwork and photos with livelier pieces and buying new cushions (or cushion covers).

Finishing Touches
Finally, a great way to embrace spring is to buy flowers or plant life for each room of the home. This really can bring the house to life and improve your mood, but remember to care for these plants by watering them regularly. You could also consider air fresheners, potpourri or simply open the windows for a fresh new fragrance in the home.

Winter can be a depressing and cold time of the year, so the arrival of spring should be embraced. This is a much lighter, colourful and happier season, so celebrate this by transforming your home with a few easy decorative changes. This does not have to break the bank, it can be done quickly and it can be a great activity to do with the little ones.
