Pack away the winter cosiness and dust off your home ready to welcome the spring months. Getting ready for spring is a great way to bring light into your home and create a warm and positive atmosphere.

Preparing your home for sunny days can be a wonderful boost to your home and well-being. Embracing light and brightness after months of hibernation in a dark and cosy winter theme can be great for the mind as well as the home. If you’re looking to add a touch of spring after breaking out from a winter rut, try these easy tricks to make your home spring-ready.

Add Plants

Adding fresh plants and colourful flowers is an ideal way to give your home a beautiful spring feel. Plant miniature daffodil bulbs on your window sill for pretty and kitsch touch of colour, or opt for big and bold houseplants like a rubber plant in your reception areas and lounge. If real flowers are too much maintenance, opt for bright and vivid statement vases filled with fake palm and papyrus leaves to add a touch of green freshness into your home. Springtime is the start of bringing the outside indoors, so take fresh green cuttings from your garden to help spruce up your home.

Brush Away The Cobwebs With A Spring Clean

Spring invokes feelings of brushing away the cobwebs and preparing the house for summer; often this means having a spring clean. Cleaning helps to make the rooms appear brighter and fresher and can help you to see the areas of improvement, such as giving the walls a fresh lick of paint or perhaps bringing in a new rug to replace the faded, moth-eaten one.

A spring clean is an excellent time to get rid of items of clutter and change the decorations around. If you spot an ornament that you are fed up with, swap it with something new or perhaps alter the layout of the room. Now is the perfect time to try new ideas and make your home feel like new.

Review Your Furnishings

After a long winter, your sofa may have seen better days. Spring is the perfect time to choose a new sofa with fresh new season designs being available. If your sofa is still in good condition, consider changing the throws and cushion covers with brighter and more colourful designs to help spruce up your living room and give it a quick and easy makeover. For spring fabrics, choose breezy and cool fabrics such as linen and cotton.

Change Your Bedding

As the warmer months come, you may want to swap your heavy winter duvet for lighter sheets and a thinner duvet. When making this change, why not pick out some brand-new sheets to match your new spring attitude. A new duvet on the bed can help to bring colour to the room but also feel so much crisper and cleaner to sleep in, ideal for blissful spring snoozes. Choose a stylish bed runner and cushions to match your new duvet cover to give your bedroom a designer finish.Β
