Freshen up your home this spring by rearranging the furniture

Spring is the perfect time to rearrange your home's furniture. With a new layout, your home will feel transformed. When mixing the furniture in your home, take foot traffic into account. Make sure there aren’t any pieces of furniture in the way when going from one area of your home to another. Functionality is the number one factor you need to consider when you arrange the furniture in your home. Afterward, you can focus on aesthetics. Spring is the perfect opportunity to see whether you need to introduce some new furniture pieces in your home. If you notice that you need new furniture pieces, choose a minimalistic or rustic design this spring.

Clean and reorganize your home this spring

Don’t forget to do a spring cleaning when freshening up your home. The best way to do this is to remove everything from the wardrobe and the shelves. Seeing everything in one place will help you see just how many things you own and whether you need to get rid of anything. And this makes it easier to rearrange and reorganize the things in your home. In addition, when shelves are empty, they are much easier to deep clean. You won’t have to worry whether you skipped any corner in your home. You may even want to let the pros handle it for you. One of the benefits of hiring professional cleans at this time is that you’ll have much more time to choose new décor. And you will get this big task out of the way without spending time or energy.

Introduce a new color scheme

When we think of spring, we usually think of colorful flowers first. That’s why adding a new, bright color scheme is the best choice this time of year. Colors such as pink, blue, and yellow are choices you can’t go wrong with. If changing the color scheme in your home seems intimidating at first, you don’t have to make a significant change. For example, you can just swap the linens and add some fresh flowers. This alone will freshen up your home this spring without a lot of effort. If you want to add something fun and different, use a pattern. Wallpaper is back in fashion, so go and find a fantastic spring-themed pattern for your home. If you have any awkward spaces in your home, use the wallpaper to give this space some personality and make it stand out in a good way.

Add lots of flowers and greenery

Plants are a décor item that works in any home, no matter your interior design style. Use this season to your advantage, and purchase flowers for your home. Put them on the windows, tables, and hallways to create a cohesive look in your entire home. Another advantage is the wonderful scent of flowers will help your home stay fresh. In the kitchen, a smart way to add some greenery is to add fresh herbs. A vertical garden is a practical way to freshen up your home this spring and help you save money. Spring is the perfect time to start this project. And if you are a foodie, your effort will pay off once you cook with fresh herbs.

Replace the décor

If you still have some leftover winter décor in your house, now’s the time to replace it. However, certain winter décor can work during the spring, too. For example, string lights can complement your home any time of the year. You can take out some of your favorite pieces of fine china in the dining room and use them as décor. Another change you can make is to swap the curtains in your home and add a lightweight and bright option instead. Add lots of natural materials when purchasing new décor, creating a calm and beautiful atmosphere in your home. All in all, add your personality through décor that matches this season and doesn’t overpower the space.

Make your home bright and airy

If your home needs a fresh coat of paint, now’s the time to tackle this. To freshen up your home this spring, you can even try a new, brighter shade for the walls in your home. Don’t worry if you are unsure which color to choose – simple, white walls are sometimes the best option. To make your home shine, add some more mirrors if you can. A small mirror can be a good décor choice for tall and dark shelves. Not only is it decorative, but it also helps make this otherwise dark area a bit brighter.

Tackle the bathroom as well

When you freshen up your home, don’t forget to freshen up the bathroom as well. For your home to feel bright and fresh, you will need to tackle every corner. Start by deep cleaning the bathroom before you move on to the décor. The simplest way to make your bathroom fresh and aesthetically pleasing is to find light linens in bright colors. Make sure all the linens match before adding them to the bathroom. Remove any clutter that may be lying around in your bathroom. Replace the floor mat and add spring-themed posters or pictures on the walls. Replace the soap dispenser and toothbrush holder if you want to bring some more change. As for the mirror in your bathroom, use faux vine to add more greenery.

In conclusion

To freshen up your home this spring, you don’t need to spend a lot of money. When you create a plan and stick to it, achieving your goals is possible. Combining even a couple of these ideas will transform your home into a bright and airy space you’ll love spending time in. And you will create a cohesive look that will work for a long time.
