Spruce Up Your Home This Spring

Home Ownership

Like most, spring time evokes urges and feelings to clean and freshen up our lives. From decluttering excess clothing and washing out your vehicles to getting rid of lingering files at work, spring is the perfect time to tidy up. Best of all, spring cleaning is a great excuse to spruce up your home. We put together quick tips to optimize your home. Plus, these ideas can be done for little money and time - that's a win-win!

Apply Paint

Have you noticed your home's trim is chipping or your shutters are looking dull? Bring life back into them by applying a fresh coat of paint. Or try painting a single wall in your home a daring color for an instant style upgrade.

Accessorize Your Home

Take down your dark drapes and opt for sheer and lightweight ones to instantly make any room feel bright and airy. Invest in new pillows, bedding, or rugs to change up the look any room easily. Simple accessories can completely change the style of a room you want to freshen up.

Replace Fixtures/Hardware

Swap outdated knobs and drawer handles for new updated hardware. You can even take it a step further and match the hardware to other fixtures in your home, such as towel bars, faucets, and lighting to create a cohesive look.

Work Your Green Thumb

Liven up your front door by investing in new flower pots. Fill your pots with brightly colored flowers and greens to instantly create a welcoming entryway. If you don't have much of a green thumb, consider purchasing artificial green plants to bring the outdoors inside.

Rearrange Furniture

Use the spring season to rearrange your existing furniture. It can be refreshing to try out new room layouts and optimize your space. Another easy tip is to utilize furniture pieces in new ways. For example, swap out your coffee table for an ottoman, or use your armoire as a television console. Get creative!
