We all know spring is a time for spring-cleaning, but it’s also a great time to make updates to your home. This year had us spending more time at home than ever before, and many of us are eager to refresh our space. I like to remind clients that there are countless updates for your home that don’t require a renovation. Even better, many updates can be easy and cost effective. A few of my favorites include:
- A Fresh Coat of Paint
Whether you do your entire home, or just a room or two, a fresh coat of paint can really impact your mood. An easier update is just painting an accent wall in a room, like your home office or bedroom. This is the perfect opportunity to experiment with a bold color. Don’t be afraid – it’s only paint! If you want to add some pattern or texture, you can try wallpaper or tile. There are many possibilities…
- New Lighting
This can be something as simple as switching out some table lamps, to going bigger with new pendants in your kitchen, or a stunning chandelier for your dining room. Depending on what you choose, changing the lighting in a room can make a bold and dramatic statement, making your space feel new again.
- Fresh Accent Pieces
One of the easiest ways to freshen things up is to add a few new accent pieces, such as light and bright throw pillows, a new patterned area rug, bold metallic vases, or even a new piece of artwork. Any of these, or a combination of a few, can breathe new life into your home.
These are just a few simple ways to update your home this spring. Remember you can also rearrange furniture, or move accent pieces you already own from one room to another for a fresh new look. Finally, if you feel stumped, please let me know how I can help you get your spring refresh started!
