Spring time is the time of a rebirth and often means that we should be clearing out the old and putting in some new and revamping your home can be a wonderful way to do this.
Whether it’s just a goal to have a nicer place to live or if you maybe have an eye on a home sale in the new year, here are some good tips for a change in your home and how to upgrade a little! It’s possible, so let’s begin!
STARTING WITH SPRINGTIME….
Use Frames Around The Home To Add Some Style
If you already have prints of some cool photos, you should consider framing them. If not, grab a camera and take some snapshots of your kids, cats, dogs or flowers. Pick the best ones and print them out. Get some modern ready-made frames or order custom ones, and display these photos on your walls. Show a little bit of creativity when you choose your frames, and don’t be afraid to mix and match colors and designs, because these combinations can look extremely stylish, if you get them right.
Invite Nature Inside And Feel Fresher
Fresh flowers, bare branches and even garden leaves can give your interiors a fresh look when revamping your home. You can even pick them from your own yard, so you can have them for free. Branches can be used to create amazing decorative mixes and add fairy lights which will give it a little bit of a cozier look and vibe. You can use them as they come or you can paint them in different colors for added effect. A nice coating of gold or silver spray paint can look amazing. Be sure to try and create some exquisite wall art by pressing flowers and leaves and framing them.
Bring Your Curtains Into This Decade
Traditional curtains with just a plain material and not matter will look much better if you stencil a design on them. You can find stencils available in many stores, so you won’t have a problem finding any that have fresh and exciting designs and patterns. If you need help, there are plenty of online sources to help you!
Don’t Overdo The Painting
Adding a fresh layer of paint can surely bring a room to life. Nonetheless, you may not want to paint an entire room when revamping your home on a budget. Repainting entire rooms makes a big impact, but this isn’t as simple as you probably imagine. It’s much easier to only paint the molding or the doors and it will be cheaper and more effective and if you want to go for a bright color, this will surely make a huge focal point in your room. This can even have a big impact on how successful you are on selling a home if you are looking into this option for the coming year.
Pillows And Cushions Are Your Best Friends
Why replace your couch when you can give it a fresh look by adding a few throw pillows? If you already have some, you could always look at renewing them. Most cushions and pillows are fairly inexpensive, which will allow you to spruce up the room on a budget!
Swap Your Furniture Around
A simple rearrangement of the furniture can completely alter the look and feel of a room. You don’t need to change the place of all your furniture items. Sometimes, swapping a table and a lamp with a free-standing floor lamp can change the focal point. This will make the viewer experience different and much more of a homely feeling will descend upon them when entering the room.
Renovate Your Kitchen and Bathroom
You need your kitchen and bathroom and use them the most. Be sure to upgrade anything that is old and that may need replacing or at least need new parts. Look at your washing machines, dishwashers, fridges, it may be that you need some dishwasher spare parts or a new sink, anything that will help things work in better order. Don’t wait for things to break! You’d be surprised at the impact new appliances make when revamping your home.
AS WE MOVE INTO SUMMER
We can still enjoy the summer months even if they’re not the glorious summers we are used to. If we’re lucky, we can strike up the BBQ and enjoy a glass of vino in the back garden; but it’s also very important to maintain a beautiful indoors also, a place to retreat to when the clouds roll in and you want that little bit of luxury indoors. You can always bring summer indoors, so let’s see now how we can effectively do this!
Let’s look at some of the top trends for revamping your home that are likely to continue through to spring and summer this year and look to see what could be a good way to enjoy summer indoors as well as out! Keeping a blank canvas is a brilliant way to ensure you can always easily go back to the drawing board.
Nautical Theme Can Be A Great Choice
This is such a simple yet elegant way to bring a little bit of summer into your home. We may think of Greece when we think nautical, so many beautiful islands, ready to explore on boats, and adopting a nautical print to your home can be really summery, and keep you feeling as summery as possible, right the away through to winter. Dark blue sailor print stripes, or bold aquas. Seashells are a lovely way to feel summery, you can buy them in a bundle or collect them on your travels, as well as other earthy objects, rope effect, cork, sand in jars, it all brings that essence of summer to your interiors!
Plant Mania, Plants Will Make You Feel Happier
Plants will always look elegant and classy. They will always bring the outdoors indoors very effortlessly, and a lot of plants are low maintenance. If you spend any time away from home on the road or with work, you don’t want your plants to die. Succulents are the most resilient and look stunning especially small ones on a windowsill or sideboard. Pick colors that epitomize summer yet will also carry you through the other months. Such as pinks, purples, these shades can last all seasons. Hanging plants are very popular now and can be found in many home stores. You do not even have to use real plants, artificial flowers can look just as good and are much easier to play around with. Create your own terrarium, that is such a brilliant way to pass time and create something pretty for your home.
Kitchen Style And Making It The Main Home Feature
Have your summer parties in your kitchen. Find some bunting and fit it around the kitchen, choose pastels and pretty summery shades. Add a touch of summer with colored glasses, colored pitchers and paper straws always have that summer vibe to them. Blues are always a popular color, according to a recent survey! Blues can also look lovely on kitchen walls, especially pale blues, and it adds a sense of calm also. Try blue in your bedroom too, especially if you suffer from anxieties, the calming effect of blues has been proven! Your kitchen is a great place to entertain and that way when you make food people can help themselves easily and you can crack open drink after drink and truly enjoy your social time with friends. Look at getting a good table and chairs to entertain with. Add an entertainment system such as music surround sound and enjoy the magic of your home inside, especially if you are not fortunate enough to have a garden yourself.
Keeping Cozy Still Even If It Is The Middle Of Summer
Just because it’s summer, doesn’t mean that you can’t still create cozy vibes in your home. Light knitted white blankets for your bed, or perhaps a netted embossed throw for your sofa. Keep the colors and textures light and enjoy layering; after all, summer evenings can get a little chillier. Also, you don’t have to put the candles away for summer! Many brands offer summer candles for your garden and they look delightful. Candles may seem cozy and autumnal but they are also very cozy and relaxing and don’t have to be just for these months. Many scents are also perfect for summer, such as beach scents, fresh towels, ocean breeze, the list is endless so start to enjoy the cozy vibes all year round. In terms of colors, look for whites, creams, golds, and pastels are all perfect for summer blankets and quilts, covers. They will feel luxe and gorgeous!
