Spring is finally in the air, which means now is the perfect time to give your home a makeover with a clean, new look. There are multitudes of quick, easy and affordable ways to go beyond traditional spring-cleaning that will refresh the look of your home completely. We’ve put together a few of the best spring makeover tips to brighten up any house!
Bring the Outside In
Adding a touch of the outdoors is a great way to bring the beauty of spring into any space and create a fresh, new style. Try adding some planters with your favorite spring flowers or low-maintenance indoor plants to different areas of the house. These additions not only make your space more visually pleasing, but the sweet aroma of flowers will also have your whole house smelling like springtime! Is the upkeep associated with plants too much work for you? Don’t worry! Artificial flowers look just as nice and come in a variety of colors to match your existing décor.
Reorganize Your Bookshelves
Rearranging your bookshelf or storage shelves can improve a room’s organization and overall visual appeal. Try organizing books by size and subject for easy-to-access reading, or line some books vertically and others horizontally in a rhythmic pattern to relieve the monotony of your shelves. Simply moving around items you already own is an easy and cost-free way to give your favorite room a makeover.
Give Something Old a New Look
Updating a vintage or antique piece of furniture is another fast, inexpensive way to bring life to your home this spring. Find an old bargain chandelier from a thrift or antique store and spray paint it using a bright color. Reupholster an old chair or sofa or refinish a clearance store find with DIY methods. Using simple techniques, you can update older statement pieces to give them a whole new look within any space in your home.
Try a Clean, New Color
Bring a breath of fresh air into your home by trying out a fresh new paint color. Already in love with your walls? Experiment with new colors for your front door or paint your ceiling a light shade of blue or gray to create the illusion that there is no ceiling at all. By incorporating bright, fresh and clean colors into your home this spring, you can give your whole home a makeover without breaking the bank.
Modernize Through Swapping
Ring in spring by swapping some of your older furniture and décor pieces for more modern ones. Incorporating pieces with clean lines, modern materials and funky designs can help reinvent your space while motivating you to do away with some items that might be older, worn or outdated.
Store and Organize
Making over your home for spring should include some practical, organizational considerations as well. Store out of season items, like winter coats and snow boots, so that they are out of the way. Once non-essential items have been stored away, try organizing your closets using different methods such as coordinating your clothing items by color. Organizing seasonal clothing items will also help you make the most of your storage space as you enter the spring months.
