Tips to refresh your home this Spring

Fri 17 April 2020

Spring is here, time a for ‘Spring’ clean. Here are some helpful tips to breathe new life into your home without incurring major costs.   

Lick of paint 

Freshly painted doors, kitchen cabinets and even skirting boards can make a big difference to a room. The room will immediately feel fresh and clean.

  

Recycle and Upcycle 

The internet is a great place for inspiration. Rather than throwing away on old cupboard, why not turn it into a desk and storage unit for the office. Get creative and reuse furniture and items no longer fit for their original purpose. 

Tidy the garden 

Sweep up all the old leaves, cut the grass and clean the patio. The winter months always leave our gardens looking a little worse for wear, a few hours tidying up can make a big difference.  

What about the spare room? 

Do you have a spare room in your house which simply doesn’t get used? It ends up as a dumping ground, and almost always has the door shut. Have a think about what else it could be used for, a playroom for the children, an office or maybe a gym.  

Declutter 

Tidy house, tidy mind – sort through those rooms and spaces in your house, which accumulate ‘stuff’, you no longer need. Head to our 5 steps to decluttering your home article to get you started.  

Colour schemes 

You don’t need to paint a room a different colour to change the colour scheme. Think about changing the duvet, cushions, curtains or even moving paintings/pictures into different rooms.  

Accessories 

Rugs, candles, cushions or perhaps even a new picture can help make a bare space seem immediately cosy and homely.  

Let the light in 

Pull back the curtains, open the blinds, clear windowsills and let natural light in. Natural light is an instant mood booster and one of the simplest ways of brightening up any room.  

Decorate with flowers 

From bunches of daffodils and tulips to sprigs of eucalyptus, take advantage of all those lovely flowers in your garden. Decorating with fresh flowers is easy and can lift any room in your house.
