One of the best parts about spring is updating your interiors for the transition into summer. Goodbye dark throws and moody lighting, hello fresh palettes and florals! Giving your home a spring makeover doesn’t have to cost the earth – follow these top tips for updating your interiors on a budget.
Spray paint furniture
There’s a new trend around, and it’s all about being creative and upcycling old stuff. Whether it’s a piece of old furniture that’s been stuck in the garage or a bargain you’ve picked up in a charity shop, you can make it perfect with a little DIY project. From coffee tables to lamp bases, you’ll be amazed at the transformation created by a can of spray paint. Bronze and copper tones are very popular this season, or you could go for a bright colour pop instead.
Are your walls looking rather bland and lacklustre? If it’s too much effort to re-paint an entire wall or room, why not make an interesting feature instead? Wall stencils are a simple and effective way of brightening up your living space. Opt for a natural design such as leaves or flowers, or choose your favourite quote to place on your wall. Most wall stickers a removable so this is a cheap and cheerful way of adding temporary artwork to your walls, which can be changed with the seasons.
If your quirky style just isn’t showing through in your interiors, maybe it’s time to choose a theme for each room. We’re not just talking colour palettes – like an actual theme to inspire your décor. Whether a room is travel inspired, seaside enthused or you want to focus on a certain era, such as art deco or retro – you’ll be sure to make your home more interesting.
Refresh your exterior
If you’re giving your entire home an update, you shouldn’t stop at the interiors. Up your kerb appeal by focusing on your front garden and the front door. It takes a little effort but keeping your garden in shape and re-painting the fence or the garden wall each year makes a big difference. If you have a little extra to spend, a new front door or a door canopy will surely impress the neighbours and make you proud to walk into your house.
