Now that spring is settling in, it’s time to start planning for the big spring cleaning. I don’t know about you, but I love it when spring comes. Everything comes back to life, the weather is warmer, the days longer, it’s a real treat!
That’s why I am so happy with the spring cleaning, it’s a wonderful chance to bring my home to life, it’s my chance to give it a fresh look without having to break the bank and if you’re planning to do the same, then you might want to read on, because I’ve got some useful tips for you!
Start with a big de-clutter
You won’t believe the things we gather in time, I’m telling you! I’m shocked every single time that I de-clutter and even though I always say I won’t do it again, I find myself falling into the same pattern every time.
What can I say, I love to collect pretty things! Leaving the joke aside, when a room is cluttered, it looks much smaller than it actually is, plus it looks bad too. So by throwing out everything that you don’t use, you’re making yourself a big favor.
Tip: I always say that if I didn’t use a thing in more than 8 months, then I probably don’t need it at all, so I throw it away. That doesn’t mean you should throw away good stuff that you may use in time, but you can be more selective about the objects which surround you.
Give your walls a fresh look
Now, I’m a little bit obsessed with this subject. I’m always looking for new trends when it comes to wall color, but in time I’ve learned that a simple white is more than enough to give your home that airy and sophisticated look.
Nothing too fancy, just the simple white that we all know. By painting your walls in a lighter color, you make the room look bigger, brighter and it’s like a white canvas. You can decorate it with colorful accessories that will bring the room to life. Be careful and don’t overdo!
Lighting is the key
It’s no secret that a great light fixture or lamp can improve the entire look of a room. Lighting is an integral part of good home decorating that can set certain moods. Cleverly placed lights can draw attention to a favorite piece of artwork, or be repositioned to give the room an entirely new look.
Because I work from home and I spend most of my time online, I also enjoy shopping online also. That’s how I came across Lights and fell in love with their wide range of products. You can find on their website any light that you might need, indoor, outdoor, you name it!
You can check them out and I am pretty sure that you will find something that will suit your home and taste.
Choose the right accessories
It’s the small details that make all the difference, so don’t be afraid to decorate your home with your favorite things. Add family photos in lovely frames, add some colored pillowcases to bring the room to life.
Fresh flowers in colorful vases, or some bigger green plants that will make you feel that you brought the outdoor inside. Everything is possible but, again, be careful and don’t overdo! Otherwise, your home will look cluttered again and you don’t want that.
These are just a few tips that help me to bring my home to life from time to time. If you have any other tips for me, don’t be shy and share them in the comment section below.
