5 Ways to Refresh Your Home for Spring
Spring is a great time to give your home a fresh perspective with simple touches that make a big impact. Celebrate warmer weather and longer days with these 5 ideas for refreshing your décor this spring.
Increase the amount of light in your home by placing extra table lamps or floor lamps in your living rooms and bedrooms. Extra lighting in your entryway can make your home seem more welcoming to visitors during dark mornings and evenings.
To brighten the atmosphere even more, switch out lampshades with colors that fit in with your overall décor. Add a cheerful touch with shades in brighter colors, such as sunshine yellow or mint green.
Add throws in bright colors
Swap out your heavy, darker-hued winter throws with light fabrics in brighter shades, such as zesty orange, vibrant red, hot pink and lime green. Brightly colored throws are a particularly good idea if you have a neutral color scheme, because you can add splashes of the same bright color in the form of throws, pillows, vases and other accessories. The overall effect will enliven your rooms and cheer up the atmosphere in your home.
Add vases of fresh flowers
A vase of fresh flowers can instantly make a room look brighter and lend an instant springtime feel. Purchase bunches of fresh flowers in vivid colors. Gerberas in shades of hot pink, purple, yellow and orange are a good choice. Arrange them in vases and place them in your living room, dining room, kitchen, bedroom and any other room that looks a little dull and lifeless.
From bright red to emerald green, you can buy toasters, coffee makers and other small kitchen appliances in a wide range of vivid colors that will add interest to your kitchen. You can also choose tea towels, dish cloths, cookware, utensils and other kitchen accessories in coordinating colors to give your kitchen a bright and stylish appearance.
Make your bedroom brighter and cozier
Place blankets and throws in vivid colors on top of your bed. Not only will they liven up the atmosphere in your bedroom, they’ll also help warm up those cool spring nights. Place a brightly colored or patterned rug on the floor next to your bed. It will instantly warm your feet as you get out of bed on a cold and dark spring morning.
