The changing of a season is always a good excuse for a sort-out at home, and coming out of winter with the whole summer to look forward to is especially satisfying. Just a few small changes can make a bit impact.
1. Keep It Simple
It needn’t be big changes. Start small and aim to make a few small updates. Something as simple as adding a few new cushions or hanging lighter curtains will give your rooms a whole new dynamic. Your clothes likely have a summer and winter wardrobe, so follow that idea through to your décor too.
2. Say It with Flowers
Blossom is one of the most beautiful signs of spring, and delicate florals are an easy way to make your home look ready for spring. Real flowers are great, but we’re also thinking bold floral prints on soft furnishings or a new rug. Flowers are sure to brighten up your space.
3. Don’t Forget Foliage
Many of us are used to putting cut flowers on display in our homes, though fewer of us include foliage in our displays. In fact, leaves or palm fronds can be a very beautiful and impactful addition. A big pop of green – from a banana leaf to some stems from a bush in the garden – makes a bold statement that can be a focal point in your room.
4. Let in the Light
As the days get longer again, let more light in to your rooms. Investing in new windows is a significant investment, but choosing a company providing Evesham double glazing offers good value. More light is one of the simplest ways to brighten up the space, and windows from Evesham double glazing offer a modern look.
5. Spring Clean
Traditionally, the first thing we do is a good clean – so much so that it has a proper name! Think about the places that have a tendency to get overlooked: skirting boards, tile grout, etc. Tackle one room at a time and work your way around the house. Do a deep clean that includes things like steam-cleaning carpets.

Do not put so much pressure on the update that you forget to enjoy the season!
