Spring is just around the corner (finally!) and suddenly it feels like time is on your side. Why not use some of it to make your house reflect your mood. Read on for some simple steps to refresh your home without breaking the bank.
Spruce Up Your Walls
You change the whole look of a room by simply changing the artwork. A fresh coat of paint would also do the trick.
Now is probably the time to check for cracks. This might be nothing – often they come from slight movement of your house over time, but they can sometimes be more problematic. For example, if your gutter is overflowing and you need gutter cleaning you might find that the water is seeping into the walls and damaging them. If you have any concerns, speak to an expert.
Give Your Floors a Rug Makeover
Rugs can make a huge difference to the look of your home. A gorgeous deep rug in any room can make it look completely different.
Loosen Your Layout
Winter is all about coziness. Tighter layouts create opportunities for conversation, but in warmer weather we want room to stretch out, enjoy the view and breathe. Rearranging your furniture is an easy (and free!) shake-up to make any time of year, but in Spring, focus on creating good flow, and keeping the eyeline from outside to inside open (i.e., no tall armchairs blocking that beautiful view).
