Spring is an exciting season where plants and flowers blossom, and with this fresh new look in appearance you may consider that it’s time to overhaul or add new features to your home. If you’re considering selling up, this could be the change you’re looking for to attract the right buyers, or it may look that good you decide to stay in it yourself.
This is the easiest and cheapest way to get a fresh and clean change to a room. Spring brings a whole new light into the home and walls can look dirty very quickly. Adding a fresh coat of paint is cheap if you provide the labour.
Patterns, texture and colour can add a breath of fresh air. Stunning fabrics can be made into cushions, throws, divider screens and wall hangings to give life to a dull colour scheme. You may feel as though you already have colour in your home but it’s not quite what you’re looking for. Try adding a brighter colour or a statement rug as pictured below. Adding stunning flowers to the coffee table will seal the deal and make this area of your house a feature not to be missed.
This can make all of the different when it comes to your interior design. Dark corners may come to life with a simple lamp, or try opening the blinds more often to bring natural light into the home. Sometimes subtle light is all you need, so add back lighting to a feature or plant may take the room from okay to amazing. You may consider adding a overstated lamp to your home as well to act as a stunning feature and make the room that little bit more enticing.
One of the smartest and most inexpensive ways to organise your home this spring is to reduce clutter. If you haven’t used it or worn it in 6 months, maybe it’s time to chuck it out. An extensive clean will also make a great difference. This will make your home easier to look at and highlight those features we want everyone to look at.
Spring can be a fun time to get your children or even yourself involved in some artwork. Have you considered painting your pot plants to bring an extra element to your backyard? This is a fun and creative way to add some life to your home and a great bonding experience for the family.
Whether they are fake or real is entirely up to you. Adding flowers to your home will provide the ideal amount of colour and excitement.
If you aren’t inclined to move your artwork, look at how you can reposition your room layout. Take out most of the pieces in the room and start again, bringing back a major piece (like a lounge) and then some accessories like a rug or lamp and then slowly bring back the rest of the furniture. You might like the new feeling of space and put some pieces in another room
Spend where needed
The big budget areas, such as the bathroom or kitchen, need some careful planning. If the major appliances and structure is in good condition maybe all the area needs is a basic ‘freshen up’, such as re-tiling and new taps and accessories. Sometimes simple changes such as these might be enough to give a new lease of life and give added value rather than being a full renovation.
