5 Easy Ways to Refresh Your Home for Spring

Now that spring is in full bloom, it’s time to snap out of the winter blues and refresh your home for sunnier days. Refreshing your home doesn’t have to be costly; a few little tweaks here and there are all you need to spruce up your space.

Need a little bit of inspiration to get you started? Check out our list of five ways to refresh your home for spring.

Tuck Away the Winter Accessories

Cozy blankets, heavy throw pillows, and plush rugs are wonderful for warming up a room on chilly winter days, but once spring rolls around, it’s time to put them away. In their place, consider adding a brightly colored throw pillow or two to give the room a fresh look.

Clear Away Clutter

Open windows, warm breezes and new flowers often inspire us to make the indoors reflect the beauty and freshness of the outdoors. Somehow, we all accumulate way too much stuff, and springtime is a great time to give our homes a once-over to figure out what can stay and what should go. Start small; tackle your junk drawer, a shelf in your closet or a corner of your basement. If the task is overwhelming, set your timer for 10 minutes and stop when the time is up. With each item, decide if it’s useful or if it brings joy to you or someone in your home. If it doesn’t meet these criteria, then it probably doesn’t need to continue taking up space in your home.

Bring the Outdoors Inside

You don’t need to have a green thumb to incorporate little bits of nature into your home décor. Geraniums, ivies and some varieties of succulents are a great way to refresh your home. They can be planted in a small container for a simple table centerpiece, and as long as you water them at least semi-occasionally, they won’t die. If that still sounds like too much work, put some fresh oranges in a bowl, set it on your dining room table and call it a day.

Add Some Color

Take spring cleaning to a new level by giving your walls a fresh pop of color. Hanging wallpaper on an accent wall or applying a new coat of paint is a dramatic but inexpensive way to update your space. You can tackle as much as a whole room, or scale it down to a single wall, the back of a bookcase or even the ceiling.

If you’re not interested in painting or papering your space, adding a few pieces of wall art is a quick and easy way to incorporate fresh color without giving up your weekend. Custom artwork, such as a Soundwave Art™ canvas or print, makes a beautiful addition to any space. You can pick from a range of sizing options and customized color schemes, as well as a message that is meaningful to you, ensuring that your custom piece is truly perfect for your home.

Rethink Your Shelves

If you think bookshelves are strictly for storing and displaying books, you’re missing out on a great opportunity. Thanks to sites like Pinterest, bookshelves have quickly become a multipurpose item, and they’re used for everything from storing bath towels to organizing a shoe collection. This spring put your bookshelf to work by using it to store spring necessities such as gardening tools, or use it to reorganize your closet.

Updating your home for spring doesn’t require a major overhaul. A few little changes is all you need to refresh your home and welcome the new season.
