Spring Hacks To Update Your Home

Spring Hacks To Update Your Home

Springtime can encourage a cleaner, brighter, fresher perspective on your space, and it’s a great time of year to evaluate how you live and consider ways to update and freshen your home.

Bring Spring Inside

Now it’s Spring, the best season for livening up a space with blooms. Whether you prefer hanging vases, arranged flowers, or planted varieties, Spring flowers or plants will add fragrance, color and always elicit smiles.

Replace One Piece of Furniture

See if removing just one piece of little-used furniture opens up a space and breathes new life into a room. And if you’re already pared down enough, then consider making the splurge and replacing just one item for a new one. Replacing just one piece of furniture, maybe that old coffee table or worn out chair, will give your room a boost.

A Fresh Coat of Paint

This update is the best value for delivering a huge transformation. And it’s Spring, so go brighter and cleaner. I’m a slave to all white walls, and wouldn’t change a thing, but if you’re more daring, try out small swatches of sunny, bright Spring shades on your wall before committing to the whole room.

Modernize Fabrics

Replacing fabric items with new, clean and brighter options can have a big impact. Consider replacing things that show wear and tear, fading, staining, etc. for an easy home makeover.

Move Furniture Around

Is there a room in your home that seems to be neglected and rarely used? Perhaps it’s because it needs to be opened up to invite guests to enter and sit. Most rearrangements are intuitive and you already know what doesn’t feel right. But have been putting off playing with the configuration. Because of being too busy or just needing another set of hands to help move bigger items. Spring cleaning time is the best for trying out new arrangements.
