With springtime creeping ever closer, it’s time to say goodbye to dark winter days and welcome the fresh spirit of the spring season. Giving your home a spring refresh and big clean after the winter not only feels good, but can give you a much-needed boost after the long winter months.
Now is the perfect time to freshen up your home, both in terms of cleaning and decor, so with that in mind, here are 3 spring home decor ideas you can use to refresh your home.
Finishing Touches In Bright Colours
Spring is the time for newness and rebirth in nature, so use this as inspiration for your interior decor. Whilst dark colours and tones felt cosy in the winter, now there is more natural daylight, look to swap them out for pastels, neons and bold colours instead. There are many different ways in which you can do this in your home, from swapping out sofa cushions, adding fresh prints to your walls or shelves or even adding splashes of colour to your dining sets.
You could also choose to redecorate a room or two around your home, especially if the space is tired and dated. If you have a small bathroom in need of an update, then bright colours and patterns work really well in a more compact space. Think bright walls, clashing colourful accessories and funky patterned flooring. If you have a darkly decorated room that could benefit from a splash of colour, look at bright coloured scatter cushions, fun neon light art or bold prints around the room.
Use Lighter Fabrics
Winter is a time for luxe, fluffy blankets and heavy duvets but now that the weather is hopefully getting a little warmer, it’s time to swap these out for lighter, airy fabrics and throws instead. Change your duvet to a lighter tog so that your sleeping pattern is not disrupted and replace brushed cotton and teddy fleece duvet sets with cotton or linen sets instead.
Not only does this create the optimal sleeping environment for the warmer spring weather, but it can transform your bedroom and make it feel bigger and brighter. If you have a number of beds to change when the seasons do, it might be best to stock up your collection during the year. Cheap bedding sets can be used as and when needed and if you have a good collection of bedding, you can change and wash them more frequently.
Bring The Outdoors In
Spring is a time for beautiful flowers and greenery after a grey winter. Add some freshness and spring decor to your home in the form of plants and flowers around your home. Tulips, posies and daffodils are perfect flowers to represent the spring season and look beautiful in the home.
In kitchens and bathrooms, add some greenery with houseplants that are suitable for the environment they are placed. If you are still working from home, then be sure to add a houseplant or two to your desk space so that you can appreciate the splash of colour they can bring to a space. Peace lilies are a great choice, as are snake plants, as they are easy to care for and have natural, light colours that are good for spring.
