As winter ends and the warm, sunny spring weather starts, homeowners are looking for new and affordable ways to give their homes a little update for the new season. The great news is that sometimes, the smallest updates make the biggest impact! Try some of these tricks to make your home refreshed for the spring.
Enhance Your Entryway
Your entryway is the first thing people see when they come to your house, so make statement! There are a couple of ways to do this. Giving your front door a fresh coat of paint will make your home instantly feel different – an accent or dark neutral makes a statement every time. If you’re really feeling like a change, consider brightening it up with a statement colour. Add some flower pots to either side to add a pop of greenery. You can also upgrade your house numbers if they’re looking a little worn or dated (or if they end up being too small or hidden by foliage)f, and install some beautiful new outdoor lighting to make your home more inviting after dark.
Update Your Lighting
Replacing your light fixtures can have a huge impact on your home. Maybe you’ve decided to change up the use or feel of a room due to working from home (we feel you!) or maybe it’s just time for a facelift. Replacing the lighting over your dining table with a really great statement piece can make the space feel more special. Replacing your lampshades in your bedroom and living room gives a quick and easy update – and can be done seasonally with other accessories to really make your home stand out.
Inject Some Spring Colour
After the dark and dreariness of winter where we spent even more time than usual at home, many of us are looking for bright and cheerful colours to incorporate throughout our homes. Whether you choose to paint a wall, whole room, or just add some accessories here and there, try some of these popular colours for 2021, chosen by Pantone for a boost to your senses:
Deck season is almost here! If your home was recently built, it’s time to start decorating! A few chairs, a table with plants, maybe a rug or deck cover for a pop of colour and comfort? The sky (and your preference) is the limit!
If you’ve been in your home for a few winters, take some time to bring your deck and outdoor space back to life. Even a quick wash with a power washer can make the most weather-beaten decks look almost like new again.
