Flowers are blooming, birds are chirping, and temperatures are on the rise — spring has finally sprung! After a long stint of cold snaps, there’s no better feeling than throwing open the curtains and letting the sunshine wash away the winter blues.
Welcome warmer weather with these four easy home updates:
#1: Update Your Patio Furniture
The best way to thaw out after winter? Relax on comfortable patio furniture with a good book in one hand and something to drink in the other! But it may be time to ditch the grungy, grimy plastic chairs and give your outdoor living space new life.
Since so much time is spent on the porch or patio in spring and early summer, it’s worth investing in a few quality pieces. Have solid furniture that still feels a little gross to sit on? A new set of cushions can make all the difference without buying new chairs!
#2: Decorate With Flowers
This tip is simple, but so effective. Whether you buy some blooms at the grocery store or snip them from your backyard, fresh flowers instantly add cheer to a room. You don’t have to get fancy — even simple greenery cut from a branch or bush can bring some much-needed color to a space and make it feel more inviting.
#3: Swap Out Pillows and Throws
Give your room a miniature makeover without busting the budget! Swapping out heavier colored pillows and throw blankets for bright, light spring patterns makes a HUGE difference and helps a space feel new again. It will only take a few minutes, and it will completely change the mood of a room.
#4: Refresh Your Front Door
After withstanding harsh winter storms, sleet, moisture and sun year after year, your front door may need to be replaced. This will add instant curb appeal and make your exterior look completely revived — and that’s a big bang for your buck.
