Spring Home Decor Advice That Will Freshen Up Your Home

*This is a collaborative post

In spring, there is more sunlight, the weather is milder, and everyone’s mood is uplifted after six months of autumn and winter. But, while the seasons change, your home might stay the same, which is a shame. After all, at the moment, it’s built for dark, cold days and nights, whereas you want it to be brighter and airier. You’ve been waiting all year for the excuse! Spring is the perfect time to freshen up your home, yet it’s not easy to choose which trends to implement because you don’t want anything too expensive or expansive.

Here are the accessible trends that will make all the difference.

Use Ambient Lighting 
It’s not summer, so the evenings are still quite dark by 6 or 7 pm. However, it isn’t wintertime, which means there’s more sunlight knocking around. Therefore, you need ambient lighting to offset your needs. In the house, you can opt for lamps as they give off a beautiful glow, whereas LEpro high bay lights are perfect for outside. Yes, you will need outdoor lighting because as the weather gets warmer, you’re going to spend more time in the garden. Spotlights work (indoors), but they can be costly in terms of money and energy.

Throw Down A Bright Rug
Again, you can’t go all out because it’s still a bit cold and dreary. So, it’s important to mix and match furnishings so that they provide colour and warmth. A rug is an excellent choice as it does both very well. All you have to do is make sure it’s light so that it makes the room pop. A great tip is to combine it with the hues that you already have as it will save you painting the walls. A thick rug should absorb plenty of heat, too, and keep the house nice and warm when the mercury plummets at night.

Go For Two-Tone Cabinets
Painting cabinets is a tried and tested method for repurposing your home’s decor, so much so that it might feel old. Thankfully, if this hack has lost its novelty, you can find your flair again by using two separate colours. Two-tone cabinets sound tacky, but they are very elegant when done correctly as they create contrast. Plus, it’s something different, and originality is always welcome in any home. If you’re looking for a subtle and affordable way to create a focal point, they don’t come more accessible than this.

Organise Your Shelves
Spring is a clean-cut time of year, and your house should represent this fact. Unfortunately, it’s easy to let clutter build up and make your home seem messy and unorganised. With that in mind, it’s time to clear away the stuff that doesn’t need to be there any longer, and there’s no better place to start than the shelves. Whether it’s a bookshelf or the ones in the kitchen, eliminate unnecessary items to make your home look and feel tidier. It doesn’t take busy mums too much time, as long as you’re not a hoarder!

How will you freshen up your home this spring?
