After a winter that has felt very long, wet and drawn out, the spring flowers are starting to emerge and give us some much needed colour.
Spring is a great time to give your home a fresh new look as you pack away the winter warmers and welcome more light back into the home and you don’t have to spend a fortune.
Giving your rooms a lick of paint is a quick, easy and inexpensive way to give your home an instant lift, but it does take time and effort to get a good result.
For something quicker and easier to do, why not add an original wall sticker to your feature wall.
They take minutes to apply, can add a real statement to your wall and when you want to change the room up again, are easy to remove. There are thousands to choose from of all shapes and sizes and you can even design your own with photo’s or text.
Adding a roller or Roman blind to a window is a great low-effort, inexpensive option and can help to offer additional privacy and darken a room at night.
Changing the curtains and soft furnishings can also help create a new look in a room and you could choose to coordinate your curtains with throws and cushions for more of an impact.
Changing your kitchen is an expensive hobby, but there are ways of giving it a boost on a budget.
Invest in matching small appliances, which can add colour the worktops, or add some stunning tile stickers. Like wall stickers, you can find some great designs online and even design your own. A kitchen splashback could also be used to create a modern look while also brightening up the room.
Make more of a feature of your window by creating a windowsill herb garden. Not only will it look pretty, but it will give you some tasty herbs to add to your culinary creations.
Choosing the right lighting can transform the look and mood of your room.
Buying a new lampshade is a cheap and easy way to replace lighting and adding table lamps can make a statement and give the room a whole new look.
For rooms that are dark, also consider adding mirrors as these are another good way of adding light and shimmer to your walls.
Changing flooring is another big job, especially in rooms where there is a lot of big furniture to move around.
Adding a rug is a good way of giving the room a bit of added colour, plus is great for covering up any damage to your existing carpets and flooring.
Your bedroom is often the room that shows off your personal sense of style the most, so add some personality to your space with some new bedroom accessories.
Add ornaments to your bedside table, cover your bed with fun cushions and throws and enhance the mood and ambiance with some clever bedroom lighting.
If you are really feeling creative, you could also recover your headboard for that ultimate focal point or update your furniture with a lick of paint.
Have you got any plans to give your home a new look this spring?
