How to Update Your Home for Spring
After months of cold and dreary weather, short days, and long, dark evenings, you probably can’t wait for the coming of spring.
What’s great about the upcoming season is the fact that it can motivate you to spruce up your home and give it a new, refreshed look.
Most importantly, it doesn’t have to take you a lot of time and money to make your home ready for spring.
The ideas that you will find in the article are helpful. Projects like making your interiors smell like spring with the help of fresh flowers and home scents.
Or using lighter fabrics for your throws, rugs, and pillows.
Both of these are inexpensive and pretty straightforward.
You’ll also find trendy spring colours and tips on how to bring in more greenery. Also, which plants to choose for your interiors, and many more.
Don’t wait up and prepare to take notes!
Introduce New Smells
To incorporate spring into your home, you can start with the smells. Try something new instead of using the same old candles and room sprays!
It’s about time to put away cinnamon apple or pine tree fragrances. Start to incorporate scents that remind you of spring.
To ensure that your house smells fresh and beautiful at the same time, you can try herb and flower fragrances. Popular ones are lavender, gardenia, citrus, and mint.
They tend to last the longest but also smell the strongest. If you’re prone to migraines, you might want to try something less potent like pomegranate, vanilla, or rose.
Depending on your preferences, you may want to invest in an essential oils diffuser. Many people use it in kitchens, living rooms, and bedrooms.
You can choose a simple reed diffuser if you want to keep the scent in one particular room or one area of your house. Alternatively, plug-in diffusers work best in corridors and bathrooms.
Add More Greenery
Another wonderful thing you can do when updating your house for spring is add some greenery. Whether you decide to go with fresh flowers or indoor plants is entirely up to you.
Fresh flowers are a better choice if you don’t have too much space or want a temporary solution.
Plants are usually a long-term commitment and have specific requirements regarding the sun and watering.
If you opt for the former option, start by adding a small vase with flowers. You can choose a clear glass vase and match the flowers to the colour scheme of your rooms.
Daffodils, tulips, lilacs, or daisies match many interiors and are a perfect representation of spring.
Additionally, don’t be afraid to get creative with the arrangement of the flowers so that they will look more attractive. For instance, you can add some decorative grass or baby’s breath flowers to create dashing bouquets.
Depending on the size of your house and the amount of space you have, you can either choose to incorporate tall snake plants or tiny ferns. You can place them on the top of your kitchen cabinets.
If you want a plant that will not only look nice but also give off an alluring scent, choose jasmine or gardenia.
Add a Touch of Color
You can spruce up your interiors by adding new accessories, such as decorative pillows or light blankets made of breathable materials.
When it comes to colour matching, try pairing dark furniture, such as a coffee table or a modern tv stand with light colours. They will stand out and give your room a bit more life and unique character.
Just make sure that their colour goes well with the rest of the items in your room.
If you want to keep your interiors as trendy as possible, you can experiment with more popular colours.
In 2022, it’s all about earthy tones, bright, sunny yellows, and blues, such as stone or sky blue. If you prefer darker colour schemes, you can opt for deep aubergine.
To change the look of your floors without having to commit to a whole remodelling project, you can invest in a new rug.
Try to avoid faux furs or “shaggy” rugs for spring — they’re much better suited for the winter or fall season.
Instead, consider getting a simple cotton rug in an interesting pattern. You can also choose a stain-resistant olefin rug if you value practicality and durability.
Change Your Curtains
Window curtains can significantly affect the look of your spaces. The heavy and thick fabrics might work well in the winter or fall, but for spring, you usually want to let in as much light as possible.
As such, replacing your heavy draperies with some light shades or curtains could work wonders. It can instantly change the look of your entire home.
You can get some pre-made curtain panels that you will only need to hang on the curtain rod.
If you’re feeling more crafty and know your way around the sewing machine, you can even sew your own curtains from the fabrics you buy at the fabric store.
To lower the costs of this project, you might also visit your local thrift stores and check what’s available. Look for fabrics like organza, silk, and muslin.
