There's something so rejuvenating about Spring. After months of dreary weather, many of us feel an urge to spruce up our homes and embrace the coming warmer weather. But it can be difficult to know where to begin to revamp your space with a fresh and inviting feel.
Here's our cost efficient ideas that you can do without making any drastic changes to make your home feel ready for Spring.
Pastel paint refresh
Spring is a positive month and tends to translate as a sigh of relief for many. Try and let your home interior mimic this warm feeling. Lightening the colour of your walls or even just an accent wall is a way to instantly brighten and refresh a room, try a pastel shade for a pop of colour.
B&Q stock many different shades and accessories to help you ahead of a weekend of DIY. Click below for B&Q opening hours and information on click & collect services.
Decorate your home with colourful flowers
One of the easiest ways to update any room is to add a bouquet of fresh Spring flowers. Sainsbury's, M&S and Asda have a great selection available, varying in size and prize. From bunches of daffodils and tulips to sprigs of iris and freesias, take advantage of all those flowers at your local supermarket.
Choose lighter fabrics
Put away the heavy cable knit blankets and furry throws, and replace them with lighter fabrics, such as cotton or linen. Opt for crisp neutral shades for a light and airy feel. This can particularly make a small room feel much bigger and brighter. Layering whites and a pale pastel shade can be a nice way to add a pop of colour while still keeping your space neutral.
Add woven baskets to reduce clutter
Spring is the the season for Spring cleaning. By simply adding a basket or two is a great way to reduce clutter and change up your look. A woven basket is the perfect accessory to store everything that normally takes up room on the sides while still looking chic and stylish.
You can find a great range of woven baskets at Next Home.
Add New Tableware
Making changes to your kitchenware is a simple and subtle way to spruce up your home. Treat yourself to a new tableware set and cups that you can rotate when the seasons change. You you bring accents of colour or patterns into your home using your tableware, this could be as simple a colourful napkin, placemat or tray. These are also perfect for showing off in the warmer weather when hosting for a Summer bbq outside.
Swap Out Candles
Lastly you're someone who's home smells of cinnamon in the winter months, it's time to swap those candles for something a little more spring-friendly. Opt for floral or citrus tones to elevate any room in your house.
M&S has a great selection of candles you can buy to treat yourself or as a gift for a friend.
