5 Creative Tips to Spruce Up Your Home Decor
Spring is here, and it is important to get our interior decor to match the spring vibe. Not only is the house going to look a lot livelier, but it’s also going to have the right vibe going for it, and it’s also going to be much more inviting for both you and your guests.
There is quite a bit you can do to give your home decor the spring vibe. We’re going to through five creative ways you can update your home without having to break the bank. However, before we get there, let us look at some preliminary steps you can take to prep your home for the grand project:
Do some spring cleaning: Before you get around to decorating the house, it’s important that you start on a clean slate. That means you should clean away all the memories of winter. Wash your windows, clear the clutter from your countertops, tables, cabinets and shelves and scrub your floors hard to get everything shining again. Once you’re done, the freshness of spring will already be permeating the house before you do anything extra.
Organize everything: Once you’re done with the cleaning, it’s time to do some necessary organizing. The most crucial areas that probably need some organizing are the garage and the basement. You’ll have to collect all of the salt, shovels and scrapers you had stored in these areas and move them a little further back where they will be out of the way. As for your winter clothes, you can store them away and bring your spring and summer clothes to the fore. A good reorganization should set the house up to feel new and ready for a great touch up.
Once you’re done with that, here are five ways you can spruce up the actual decor to get your home glowing for spring.
1. Paint the Front Door
Your front door is the door to your abode. Giving it the right kind of spring look is certainly going to have the house standing out right from the street. You can try strong and vibrant colors like Yellow and red, depending on the general theme you want your decor to follow.
2. Have an Accent Wall
The idea here is to have a feature wall that will have a color that contrasts its surroundings. The brighter the accent wall, the better. You can have this accent wall pretty much anywhere, but the living room and bedroom are the best. Once you’ve got the right wall for it, you can decorate it with a few vases with house plants and maybe one or two hung paintings. Just be sure not to clutter it with objects that will steal attention from it.
3. Don’t Forget the Bookshelves
The last thing you want with your bookshelves is monotony. You don’t want boring row after boring row of books. Consider lining the books up according to some criteria, such as subject or size. You can have some vertical while others are horizontal. It’s all up to you. You can also modify the bookcases themselves. Consider having painted bookcases with doors. They’re going to look sophisticated and fresh all at the same time.
4. Replace Your Pillows
The throw pillows on your sofas can have a profound effect on the overall vibe of your living room. Consider getting pillows with vibrant patterns and colors for the spring. Don’t be afraid to experiment with bold colors here.
5. Paint Your Furniture
You don’t have to replace your furniture for spring. You can give it some new life. Consider sanding and priming your furniture and then repainting it with some bright and bold colors. Light blue and yellow are pretty great colors that are bound to brighten up the room.
