When spring arrives, you'll probably start thinking about doing a little spring cleaning. While you're at it, why not refresh your house with some new décor? Maybe you're tired of looking at the drab wallpaper in the bathroom or wishing you had painted your bedroom with a more cheerful color. Even if you can live with your current décor, it's good to switch things up once in a while so you don't get bored. Here are a few ways you could freshen up your house with a new look for spring.
1. Paint the Walls or Add Wallpaper
The color or pattern on your walls essentially sets the tone for the rest of your room. Everything else that you place in the room will have to coordinate with the walls in some way. If you're looking for a spring refresh, why not start with the most basic part of your house? Try brightening one of your rooms with a new paint color. It's a great way to get out of the house, keep yourself busy and increase the value of your home. Plus, you can fix mistakes that you might have made in the past like choosing the wrong color or using flat paint in your bathroom.
If you really want to liven up your space, cover the walls with a stylish removable wallpaper. From bright floral wallpaper to elaborate patterns to vibrant illustrations, there's a style of wallpaper out there for everyone. You could brighten up a nursery or a kid's room, make your kitchen look more welcoming or give your bathroom more character. If you change your mind later, you can easily remove the wallpaper without damaging your walls. It's great for a temporary refresh or a permanent update in your home.
2. Add New Wall Art
Designer wall art is one of the easiest ways to decorate your home. You can choose your favorite illustration, hang it up in the room and take it down whenever you want to relocate it. With so many options on the market, it's easy to find the right wall art that accentuates your home décor. If you're tired of looking at the same painting that you've had in your living room for 10 years, why not switch it out with a brand-new illustration?
Add a spark of creativity to your space with photography, pop art, paintings, framed illustrations and more. You can even buy artwork specifically for your children's rooms so they won't feel left out. Home décor trends come and go, but wall art is incredibly customizable and versatile. You can make it the centerpiece of your room or use it to accentuate other pieces of décor. If you get the urge to try something different, simply swap out one piece of wall art for another. You can find an endless selection of pieces, styles and framing options online.
3. Decorate With Flowers
Everyone associates flowers with spring. When the frost starts to melt, plants sprout from the earth and produce brilliantly colored flowers that you can enjoy through summer. Why not bring the beauty of nature into your own house? Decorate your living space with house plants, bouquets of fresh flowers, succulents, cacti and other natural plants. Many plants are fairly low-maintenance and only need to be watered once a week or so. You'll enjoy watching your plants grow and appreciate the delicate beauty that they bring into your house. It's hard to be in a depressed mood when you have a breathtaking vase of flowers on your kitchen table.
If you don't want to care for real plants, you could also invest in artificial plants. They're affordable, maintenance-free and long-lasting, all without changing. You won't have to worry about picking up dried leaves or buying a new bouquet for your vase every few weeks. With artificial plants, the most you'll have to do is dust them once in a while. Many artificial plants are made of soft, lustrous materials that look just like the real thing. You can even buy artificial plants with acrylic drops of "water" that look like they were freshly cut and put in a vase.
4. Change Your Bedsheets
You spend at least a third of every day in the bedroom. Why not treat yourself to a new pair of bedsheets? You can freshen up your bedroom's décor and give yourself something to look forward to when you go to bed in the evening. Look for a light, breezy bedsheet that won't make you feel smothered or overheated when summer arrives. You can complete the look with a matching set of pillows and a comforter for fall and winter. Once you've replaced your bedsheets, you might realize that the rest of your bedroom could use a new look as well.
Decorating is one of the most exciting things about living in your own place. Your tastes might change over time, but you'll never get sick of seeing a new illustration on the wall.
