Tired of Winter? Try These 7 Fresh, Seasonal Ideas For Your Home!


When spring rolls around, everyone is craving the warmer temperatures and days filled with sunshine. Winter is often dark and long, and spring is a wonderful change. Not only do you want more sunshine outside, but we want to bring this feeling of spring and sunshine into your home as well. Here are some great ideas to help you do this.

Clean Your Windows 

A very simple, yet effective, way to bring more sunlight into your home is to clean your windows. They have likely become very dirty over the course of the winter and could use a good cleaning. This allows all of the possible sunlight to shine in and gives you a gorgeous view of the outdoors.


Trim Trees And Bushes Blocking Your Windows 

It’s that time of year to cut back old growth and take away dead branches. If you notice that some of your trees and bushes have become overgrown around your windows, this can block a lot of the natural sunlight that would otherwise shine in. Trimming these bushes and trees can go a long way in brightening your home.

Get Fresh Flowers 

Springtime is a great time to purchase fresh flowers to put inside your home because there are so many flowers to choose from. You can then place these fresh flower arrangements around your home to bring the look and feel of spring indoors.

Paint Your Walls White 

If you have any walls in your home that are darker, you may want to consider painting them white. White not only makes spaces look larger, but white also does a great job of enhancing the natural light in the room.


Install A Large Mirror 

Mirrors do an amazing job of reflecting natural light. Because of this, purchasing a large mirror and placing it in a location where natural light is abundant, can help to make your home even more spacious and light.

Add Spring Pillows To Your Furniture

In order to bring spring inside, you can purchase some spring-themed pillows for your furniture. This could be a pastel colored pillow, a floral pillow, or whatever brings a spring feel into your home. Florals and palm leaf designs are a HUGE look for this season! Try pairing your pillow décor to your wall art or a throw blanket!


Install A Skylight

If you are feeling especially motivated to bring more light into your home, you can have a skylight installed. This brings so much added light into your home and is also a gorgeous addition to any home.
