A good habit is to clean up the house every season and get to the farthest corners, throwing away and selling unnecessary things, giving new life to forgotten things. If one general cleaning is not enough, we advise you to think about updating the interior – the fresh color of the walls or the bright carpet on the floor will make you look at your home in a new way and spend time in it with pleasure in anticipation of warm days.
We start with cleaning Before you update the interior for spring, it is important to prepare the space and get rid of everything that is superfluous. You can read a small book by Marie Kondo “Magical cleaning”. It contains step-by-step instructions for decluttering and proper storage of things. The main idea of the book is not to think over additional storage places, because there will always be a few of them, but to get rid of those items that you do not use. It is decluttering that should be put at the top of your spring to-do list.
Attention to detail Replace textiles, add spring shades, floral and nature motifs to pillows, or decorative rugs. Spring is the best time to change heavy blackout curtains for something lighter and airier. For example, natural linen curtains from IKEA will cost you 70$.
Handmade To update the interior, it is not necessary to buy new expensive furniture. Give a second life to a chest of drawers, chairs, or a table. For example, repaint in bright colors (green, yellow, metallic) or add a colorful print. Yes, it will take time to remake, but it will be a thing with history.
Add light and volume to the space In spring, daylight hours become longer, but the sun still does not often please us. Therefore, we advise you to think about additional lighting – floor lamps and decorative lamps.
Aroma of the house Fragrances for the home are the same piece of decor with which you can start transforming your home. You can focus on fruit and flower compositions. Experiment with sandalwood, mint, tangerine, honey. Interesting home fragrances can be found in many brands.
Don’t Forget the Kitchen Buy new cookware. Let it be unusual, colorful, or even a little weird. The main thing is that now every morning the table setting will turn into a real ceremony of the beginning of spring.
Change color Make one or more walls accent by painting them with paint. It is not as expensive and scary as it might seem at first glance.
