To welcome spring into your home, we have put together some practical tips in good manners, not least because it is the time of year when people typically feel more motivated to do household chores. Therefore, if you are part of the group that takes advantage of the arrival of spring to do a general cleaning of the house, get rid of items you no longer use, separate clothes you no longer identify with, renew the paint, make minor repairs and leave environments with a lighter air, this article is for you. Prepare your home with these spring decor ideas we have for you.
1- The colors of spring
Green and yellow are the dominant colors, and that’s why they are tones that you should use in spring decor. Just change some details, such as accessories, pillows, or even cups, to use the new colors without spending a lot.
2- And the color alternatives
We suggest coral tones for those who are not fans or prefer other colors, especially for bedrooms. They are light, fresh, and soft colors, perfect to prepare the transition to the most vivid colors of summer.
Feel free to play around with patterns and textures, especially pillows, comforters, and rugs.
3- Bring flowers indoors
They bloom everywhere, and this is the time to decorate the house with flowers. No spring decoration is done without them. Another alternative is to use wallpaper with floral themes. It is an efficient and even economical solution that you can do yourself.
4- Vases on the wall
Still about the flowers: do you have a free wall at home? Build a frame or buy one where you can attach those tiny vases to the wall or even glass vases. Then just put some flowers, or cacti and succulents.
With this spring decoration, it stops taking up so much space and can still freshen up your home.
5- Create a frame composition
On one of the walls at home, install different paintings, preferably with a clear frame inside the frame, place paintings or posters of tropical plants or plants like sunflowers.
6- Colored cups
Do you like to display your glasses or have guests at home for lunch and dinner? Opt for a collection of colorful cups, and essentially in shades of green, blue and yellow; this will bring the freshness of spring to these moments.
7- Renovate the porch or create an outdoor space for relaxing moments
Spring days already bring lunch hours with delightful temperatures. There’s nothing more reasonable than hanging out with your loved ones outdoors. Decorate it with plants, basketry benches, and a wooden table if you already have a porch. If necessary, revarnish the existing wood.
With the nights still cold, feel free to have a small heater and blankets outside and sip hot tea in the spring moonlight. This is already more of a tip to enjoy this season than spring decoration, but it’s worth it.
8- Build a vertical garden
If you live in an apartment, this spring decoration tip is especially for you. On your balcony or a free wall inside the apartment, but with good lighting, mount a wooden structure with a system similar to hangers. On these hangers, attach small vases and decorate with plants to taste. A tip: vines look wonderful in vertical gardens.
9- Deep cleaning!
It’s not the most exciting task we know, but it’s the one that makes all the difference in the house: deep cleaning. Take advantage of the more inviting weather and use the extra motivation to bring a feeling of seeing the house airy, clean, and disinfected from the humidity that has settled in the winter. Discover some tricks here.
10- Get rid of what you no longer use
The golden rule in any storage should be a priority: get rid of what you no longer use. In addition to freeing up space, it can still help someone in need in some cases. This tip doesn’t just apply to clothes and shoes. Give a general review: furniture, decoration items, school supplies, books, household items, and even that perfume you’ve gotten sick of. Detach yourself, donate, collect some change, clear space, and be happy!
11- Organize closets
Take everything out to clean the inside and find out what you have. Sometimes we accumulate so much ‘junk’ that we don’t even know what’s hidden on those shelves further away. Please make a selection of what you want or not to keep and, by the way, take the opportunity to put your impeccable clothes, discover here the tools we have for you.
12- Clean walls
In winter, the walls accumulate moisture, and there is nothing better than taking advantage of the good weather to clean them.
13- Remove odors and even stains from blankets, comforters, pillows, and rugs
The ideal is to wash them in the washing machine, by hand, or in a laundry room.
14- Wash windows, blinds
With the spring sun beating down, all the dirt can be seen with the naked eye and from a distance. It is a time-consuming and tiring process. Clean it little by little, in stages, and ask for reinforcements. Where everyone helps, nothing costs!
15- Clean the terrace and garden
Prepare the outdoor space for the upcoming gatherings put all the garden furniture outside again. Want to renew? See the solutions we have here.
This thorough cleaning is different from the weekend, wherein we put everything ‘in clean dishes’ for a few hours. You will need to subsidize more time in this one, so divide your time into several days if you have a big house.
16- Add color to the environment and a hint of freshness using plants
Spring language translates into color, lots of colors. In spring, houses deserve a light color palette for more natural light. Follow the trend, combine pastel tones with vibrant colors, and see a result full of life.
In addition to color in the decor, add flower and plant scents to your home. Whether in the garden, on the patio, or your balcony, bring spring to your space. Indoors, opt for fresh flowers and potted plants and notice how the place calls for spring and freshness.
17- Play with the accessories
This time of year is an excellent excuse to change up your decor or add little details. Save the darkest accessories and choose spring pieces, such as floral pillows, for example. Online you will find pillows in the most diverse colors and shapes; discover them.
18- Change bed, table, and bath linen
Due to frequent use, these items get worn out by time, but they are never placed on the priority list. Take a good look at the bed, table, and bath linens in your home and ask yourself: do you need to buy new ones? If so, don’t have a guilty conscience for investing in a good set of sheets and bath towels. In addition to your home gaining a different look, your well-being and self-esteem will stay up there.
19- If possible, renovate a piece of furniture or move something around
Do you know that couch that’s been on the same wall since you moved in? Or that table you inherited from your friend you didn’t want anymore? How about taking the opportunity to give an “up” to the look of your home by spending super tiny? Changing the furniture arrangement gives the feeling of a new home and sharpens creativity. The same goes for those old items that you’ve won and that you don’t want to trade at the moment. How about renovating? There are countless tips and ideas on the internet that can help you with this, and you still have fun.
Bonus: Blankets, paintings, and pillows are cheap and give an exceptional touch to the environment.
20- Candles, flowers, and decor items
Sometimes you don’t need significant renovations to make your home more beautiful and cozy; invest in decor items such as candles, vases, paintings, and flower arrangements. Even flowers are all about spring and leave the house with a touch of lightness and tranquility. You can choose to buy ready-made layouts at the florist or make your own, buying the flowers and leaves separately. The secret is always to select cheerful colors and more resistant types of flowers to last longer.
21- Pay attention to the lighting and aroma of your home
This sounds basic, but have you ever noticed how much ambient lighting makes a difference in environments? A diffused light, for example, can make them more cozy, ideal for rest environments such as the living room and bedroom. Scenting your home is also a way to make it hotter and more comfortable. Today there are several forms: electric flavorings, essences, incense, sprays, etc. The important thing is to choose an aroma that you like, which conveys tranquility. After all, our sense of smell is capable of powerful awakening sensations.
