We have a few tips on how to freshen up your humble abode whether you are trying to liven up your safe space, impress your guests, or you’re getting your home ready to go on the market.

The first purchase you should make should be some florals or foliage. Having some plants in your home will boost your mood, add color, and of course smells great! Add some fresh greens to your kitchen and you’ll notice a difference immediately. Pick up some herbs or flowers to your porch or yard and you’ll have instant curb appeal.

Cleaning out your closets is not only cathartic but creates more space for items that you will use more during spring and summer. Organizing and getting rid of clothes that haven’t been worn in years will make you feel reenergized for the spring.

Another big change you can make to improve your space is to lighten up your home. Bring in more sunlight and use shades of fabric in the warmer months that are clean and bright. Whites and light brown or crème shades are perfect for larger furniture, rugs, or curtains. Also, clean your windows and pull back the blinds to let some light in.

Updating your accent or throw pillows is another spring investment you can make to freshen up your house. Use pops of color and florals to make it pop for the season. This is a quick update that can be done in living rooms, bedrooms, patios, or any other room you choose to revamp.

Lastly, moving around your furniture and décor will force you to clean and also give you a fresh perspective on your house. This is one of the most cost effective ways to get your house ready for the new season and essentially refurbish some items you were getting bored with.
