With Spring just around the corner, now is the perfect time to update your décor and transform your living environment. At a time when we’re living, working and studying at home, it’s essential to make the most of your space. If you’re tired of looking at the same four walls or you’re in need of a pick-me-up, take a look at these XX ways you can refresh your home this Spring:

Let the Light In

As the dark evenings recede, you’ll want to make the most of the sun in springtime. While roof lights can be a brilliant way to maximise the amount of natural light in your home, you don’t need to undertake major renovations. Instead, place mirrors in strategic locations to increase the amount of natural light that reaches each room. While mirrors are a fabulous decorative addition in their own right, they’re also an effective way to bring more light into your property. 

Go Floral

Floral is on trend this season and it complements Spring perfectly. Take a look at floral wall options here https://www.wallpaperboulevard.com/category/floral-17.aspx, or incorporate the floral trend by updating your throws and cushions. Whether you opt for a full-room design, an accent wall or just a few floral-inspired finishing touches, this is one interior design trend you won’t want to miss. 

Bring Nature Indoors

As Spring arrives, there’s no doubt you’ll be wanting to spend a little more time outdoors. However, you can capture the feeling of Spring without leaving your home by bringing nature inside. Indoor plants, fresh flowers and greenery is an ideal way to make your home feel lighter and brighter. 

If you’re looking for a more adventurous project, installing bifold or trifold doors allows you to create the ultimate indoor-outdoor room. As well as enjoying nature, you’ll be able to make the most of the warmer temperatures and lighter evenings when you can spend more time outdoors. 

Choose a New Fragrance

In the same way you might switch your perfume or aftershave according to the seasons, you should update your home fragrance to reflect the change too. Jasmine, vanilla and cinnamon are popular Winter scents, but they can be a little too heavy for Spring. Instead, try lemon, gardenia or cherry blossom if you’re looking for a new signature scent for your home this season.

Update Skirting Boards and Door Frames

When you’re thinking of ways to transform your home, it’s easy to overlook skirting boards, door frames and other fixtures. However, these have a big impact on how a room looks and feels. With a fresh coat of paint, you can breathe new life into old fixtures and make them look as good as new. 

If you’ve always used a gloss finish on door frames and skirting boards, try switching to a matt paint or vice versa. By trying something new, you can change the way your home feels and see what impact it has on the rest of your décor and interior design. 

Use Lighter Fabrics

As the weather changes, you won’t need to use heavy fabrics to keep warm any more. Instead, you can switch to lighter throws and blankets. Additionally, you may want to opt for more neutral colours and natural fabrics as Spring arrives. Cotton or linen give you that super-soft feeling while still helping you to stay cool when the temperature rises. With eco-friendly options, like bamboo or organic cotton, you can even embrace sustainability as you refresh your home for Spring. 

Create More Storage

If there’s one thing all homeowners have in common, it’s the need for more storage! When you don’t have a place to store things, it’s easy for rooms to become cluttered. This limits your ability to relax and unwind, but it also detracts from your décor. By decluttering your home, increasing storage space and ensuring everything is returned to its proper place at the end of the day, you can cultivate a soothing and relaxing environment for the upcoming season. After all, it isn’t called ‘Spring cleaning’ for nothing! 

Make the Most of Your Surroundings

Everyone’s still spending more time at home than usual, so enhancing your surroundings is particularly important. When you home motivates, inspires and calms you, it can have a major impact on your mood, outlook and productivity, so it’s well worth taking the time to perfect your environment. By embracing the season and refreshing your home now, you can update and enhance your surroundings so that they’re the perfect springboard for success.
