All the changes in weather have us dreaming about spring, longing for consistent warm temperatures and the chance to see the world bloom out of winter hibernation. The changes we see outside during the spring often lead us to make changes in our homes, whether it’s doing a little spring cleaning or home maintenance.
During the cold months we tend to seek out cozy, warm areas, breaking out the fluffy rugs, pillows and throw blankets. Storing these away for next winter is an easy place to start freshening up your home for spring. Refresh your space by minimizing clutter and brining in brighter colors through accessories like pillows, artwork, and lamp shades. Even swapping out a cozy, wool or shag area rug for a lighter, earthier woven rug will bring a breath of fresh air to any room. For an even bigger refresh, a fresh coat of paint can do wonders. Changing out darker colors for lighter neutrals or bright colors can breathe new life into your home.
Spring is also a popular time for home maintenance projects and renovations. Maybe you’ve noticed all the winter weather has been less than kind to your floors, and it’s time for something new. Spring and summer months also mean more time in the great outdoors, and those outdoor activities often find their way back into the house with water and dirt. If you don’t have a space already, consider carving out an area as a “mudroom” or organized entryway with cubbies, hooks, and durable flooring. Excellent flooring choices for these areas are ceramic tile, LVT (luxury vinyl tile), and WPC (made of wood plastic composite and waterproof). All of these come in wood and stone looks and are very stylish and durable. Whether you’re resurfacing one area or want to give your whole home a new look, never underestimate the value of new floors. Floors also add a wealth of color and texture and can be the foundation for your spring home makeover.
With spring right around the corner it's time to freshen up our homes. We can start by swapping out those dark colors and fluffy textures for fresh and smooth colors and textures.
