How To Get Your Home Ready For Spring

7 March 2024

The holidays are incredibly fun but, unfortunately, short-lived. Your home may felt a bit sad as you took down the Christmas tree and boxed up the sparkly decorations, but don’t let the post-holiday blues keep you down! Warm weather is right around the corner, and your home needs a pick-me-up.

If you’re ready to reintroduce your home to spring colours and bright decor, then follow these design tips and tricks to get your home ready for the warm weather ahead.

Introduce bright colours

Spring is all about rebirth, and nothing says refresh like bold colours. Swap out your dark winter decorations for some pastel ones instead. Add a coloured or patterned throw pillow (or five) to your sectional or loveseat, or lay down a new area rug. Some great spring colours to test drive include yellows, pinks, greens and lavenders — don’t be afraid to mix and match these shades throughout your space.

Add greenery

As the snow melts and the sun warms the ground, plants will start to flourish. Emulate this new growth in your home by incorporating houseplants and other greenery into your sunniest spots. Finding low-maintenance houseplants that can withstand the seasonal weather change can make this transition easy and reduce the risk of killing your new flora. If you’re not interested in watering or caring for a houseplant but still want the added charm of extra greenery in your home, fake plants are a great alternative.

Paint an accent wall

Maybe you want to completely change the wall colour but are stuck spending your time spring cleaning in which case, an accent wall is your answer. Pick an airy colour like light blue or pastel yellow and paint only one wall in your living room or dining room. This creates the novelty of a completely different wall colour without putting in too much time and energy. If you want to take the design another step further, paste a floral-patterned wallpaper on the accent wall instead — it’s a wonderful way to bring spring flowers into your home.


Swap out your blankets

Since winter calls for heavy blankets, pack those away and welcome lighter fabrics and textures into your rooms. Although you most likely won’t need to cuddle up under one of these throws, you can drape them on sofas or chairs to create a focal point in the space or make it feel more inviting. Some spring fabrics to try include lightweight linen, thin knitting or airy cotton.
