5 Easy ways to refresh your home for spring

Top Tips

Posted 24/04/2017

Home in need of a spring revamp? Freshen up with these quick and simple interior updates.

Updating your home doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Instead, channel the re-energising changes that spring brings by thinking about interior touches on a smaller scale. Whether it’s a new patterned rug or a vibrant window fitting, it takes little effort to bring the season in. These five simple tips are the perfect way to embrace this year’s spring trends and refresh your living space for the months ahead:

 

Bring in the blooms

The tiniest touch of the outdoors can have a big impact on a space. Invite nature in by decorating with florals – switch out the winter foliage for lush, joyous blooms. From silky tulips to pastel-hued roses, nothing enlivens a space like spring flowers. Dot them all over for spring vibes throughout the home.

 

Inject Colour

 

Nothing lifts the mood in a home like a happy hue. From fruity peach to lively clementine, bright colour blocking can recharge a living space. You don’t need to paint the whole room, simply introducing vibrant accents can add that much sought-after seasonal change. Bright and airy window fittings provide a refreshing lift to natural light sources – try refreshing yours by setting Spectrum Casablanca blinds in a zesty yellow shade against the clear blue skies of spring.
 

Control clutter

You didn’t think you could reenergise your living space without a little spring cleaning, did you? Dust off the last of that stale wintry clutter with a seasonal deep-clean. Wash windows to let the sunshine in (that includes cleaning blinds), revive the carpets, and keep thick blankets and heavy throws from the colder months out of site in a chunky storage chest. If you tend to cling onto possessions, live by the mantra ‘love it or lose it’ during your spring clean. You’ll soon minimalize your space for a refreshed home.

 

Change up patterns and textiles

An easy, breezy way to inject freshness into a room is to mix up your textures and patterns. When it comes to trends, all signs point to tropical prints. This fun-loving interior style is a simple way to jazz up your home for spring: plenty of rattan textures, oversized succulents and maximalist jungle patterns. You don’t need to go for the whole trend at once – simply introducing a new textured cushion or rug can give a space a revitalising burst of life. This Funchal Summer Roman blind fits the trend well, blending bright botanical patterns with greens, creams and dusty pinks.

 

Maximise light

 

Spring is a time when we crave the freshness of the outdoors. Daffodils pushing up from the soil, the sounds of birds chirping and bright, mood-boosting light in abundance. Bring that happy sunshine inside by filling the home with reflective surfaces such as mirrors and glass and adding sparkling accents such as crystal chandeliers. For a modern update this spring, rejuvenating your window dressings with pure white plantation shutters not only looks stylish, but floods a room with natural light.
