Spring is a season full of vibrancy and it’s when the weather becomes warmer as the winter passes. It is also a perfect time of year to give your home a makeover, and brighten it up a little for summer. There are many ways you can makeover your home for spring with new decorating ideas: you want to think bright, flowery, shades of pastel, and the smell of the outdoors brought inside.
These tips we are mentioning below will also show you how to decorate your house for spring and refresh your home with a new spring look!
1. Clean Your Home
First, you should clean the entire home to make it bright and lively after the winter months. If you have dark drapes, put light ones up instead. Sheer drapes are particularly good for springtime. They provide light into the home, giving it an airy joyful feel.
2. Paint In Pastel Shades
After the walls are washed, you can spruce them up with some pastel shades of paint. You can even add a floral accent chair to bring a touch of the outside in to your home. Shades of pink, light yellow, and pale greens are ideal for the spring season.
3. Make Covers
Make some covers for your couches and chairs to match the drapes, if possible. If you can’t make them, either buy them, or add some springtime features to your existing covers. Flowers, butterflies, bugs, and anything else you can think of will go well with a spring make over.
4. Lighter Feel Rugs
If you have any thick rugs you used over winter, now is the perfect time to clean them and store them away. Go for a lighter feel and look for a spring rug. A cotton material would be ideal for spring.
5. Re-Arrange Furniture
Arrange your furniture so that the seating is pointing towards a window, seeing the outside to the garden is a good idea for spring. Also get rid of all the clutter, give away to charity anything you don’t want or need. Recycle old newspapers and magazines.
6. Add Plants and Flowers
Add some nice green plants and fresh flowers to your home. Sometimes this is all it takes to make over a room. The flowers will also provide a natural air freshener too.
7. Accessories Your Home
Accessorize your home. Small items such as pictures, ornaments, and dried flower arrangements can add a touch of elegance to any room. Clean your shelves and add plants, picture frames, or any other spring related objects you can think of.
8. New Bed Set
Invest in some a new bed set. You can make it if you’re handy at crafts, or buy if you’re not. In addition, you can also do what I suggested with the chair covers and make over some old ones. A canopy made from sheer material over the bed is also an excellent idea for a spring make over.
9. Spice Up The Dining Table
Spice up a dining table by adding a table runner, which has pastel shades. Get some new dinner plates with a floral theme, and put fresh flowers on the table.
10. Add Subdued Lighting
Another good way to do a makeover for spring is to add some subdued lighting. Recessed lighting is ideal, or a dimmer switch where you can set the mood whenever you like.
A makeover for your home is a great idea, but especially good during spring. A good old spring cleaning is what every house needs to give it a little spruce up after the winter. They key to spring make overs is to be bright and bold, while trying to bring outdoor themes indoors.
Thanks for the great post and ideas. I love the idea of making over the home for spring. Fresh. Clean.
