Getting Your Home Ready For Spring

11 March 2024 | General, Home Decor

As winter starts to become a thing of the past and the days grow lighter, you might be ready to welcome springtime energy with open arms.

As well as helping you get up in the morning, spring is an ideal time to spruce up your garden ahead of the warm summer months.

Whether you’re planning to host outdoor gatherings or simply want to give your interior a facelift, here are some essential tips to help you prepare your home for the arrival of spring.

  1. Tackle the garden

It’s easy to neglect our outdoor spaces in the winter but getting them ready now will allow you to spend more time outside as the weather begins to warm up.

Start by giving your patio (or deck!) a spruce-up by cleaning it with warm soapy water and a bit of elbow grease. If you have outdoor furniture, inspect it for signs of wear or damage. If needed, you can repaint wooden furniture.

Once you’ve given your garden the once-over, consider adding some new cushions, potted plants and solar lights to create a welcoming outdoor oasis that you can enjoy in the coming months.

  1. Have a spring clean

Taking some time to get rid of old items that no longer serve you and cleaning those areas that are sometimes missed can help your house feel brand new.

Start by decluttering your home and recycling or donating anything you no longer need.

If you’ve got items that are in good condition, you can always sell them online to make some money during the current cost-of-living crisis.

  1. Add some seasonal décor

Adding soft furnishings and décor in spring colours such as pastels and softer tones can help your home look the part. Where you can, swap out dark and heavy textiles and replace them with linens and softer touches.

To finish off, add some indoor battery LED candles in different colours to keep your room feeling bright, airy and chic.

  1. Incorporate greenery

Fresh flowers and greenery will effortlessly breathe life into a dull room. Not to mention they’re good for our mental and physical health.

If you can, try to add some potted plants to your home’s interior design scheme and keep them watered.

If you’re not to be trusted with botanicals, convincing fake flowers will give you the same effect – just without the painstaking maintenance!

Final thoughts

As you get ready for spring, remember that the goal is to create a space that feels welcoming, rejuvenating and vibrant – however, that may look to you!

So, roll up your sleeves, let your creativity blossom and get ready to embrace the joys of spring in every corner of your home.
