If you’re like so many others, spring cleaning is second nature, but you may need a few tips when decorating your home for the season. Whether you just want to add a splash of color and uniqueness or you want a fresh new look, spring is the perfect time of year to make those changes.
Luckily, home decorating doesn’t mean that you have to spend a lot of time management and money in order to capture the feel of spring. Your home will shine this season with the right tips, colors, and a little imagination.
1. Curb Appeal
One of the first things you can do is spruce up the front of the house. Add flowers to window planters or along the edge of the home. Paint the front door a nice, bright color and add a spring-themed wreath. You may be surprised what a few flowers and a coat of paint can do as far as giving your home that springtime feel.
2. The Second Thing They See
Keep the theme going and decorate the entryway with a copper vase filled with yellow or white flowers and consider adding a couple of custom canvas prints to the wall to add a touch of personal style. If there are windows in the area, use sheer or light-colored curtains to let in as much natural light as possible.
3. The Family Room
Your family, friends, and visitors likely spend a good bit of time in the living room or den and as such, the room should definitely get a decent bit of decorating attention. First, get rid of blankets and replace any dark throw rugs with brighter warm-colored options. Swap out blackout curtains for light-colored window shades or window coverings. Finally, canvas pillows are perfect accents for any family room.
4. The Dining Room
A wildflower bouquet centerpiece, whether real flowers or fake, is a great way to “springify” the room. However, this is the perfect spot for an accent wall. Select one of the largest walls and paint it a bright yellow, soft blue, or vibrant orange. Add another wreath to tie in the exterior, and your guests are certain to get that feeling of spring.
5. The Bathroom is Still Essential
Decorate the bathroom with decorative hand soaps, a small flower arrangement on the back of the toilet or sink countertop, get a new shower curtain with liquid floor screed, and add a bright bath mat to round out the look and feel of spring.
6. Don’t Forget the Bedding
Swap out the winter bedspread with a lighter, more colorful option. The same goes for the curtains and any dark throw rugs. Don’t be afraid to add another array of flowers to the top of the dresser or nightstand, as you can find some excellent faux options that will work perfectly.
7. Adding Plant Decor
If fresh flowers aren’t your thing, don’t forget about the greenery, branches, and other natural plant options that are available in your backyard or neighborhood. Spring is the perfect time to use freshly-cut shrub and tree branches, place them in water, and watch them bud! This look and smell of spring are also perfect for those decorating on a budget.
Decorating your home for spring can really refresh its whole vibe and feel. With a gallon or two of paint, a few flowers, fresh plants or greenery, and working on letting in as much natural ways of light as possible, you can easily capture the feel you’re looking for.
It’s time to shake off winter and bring the beauty of spring into your home.
