5 Easy Ways to Welcome Spring into Your Home

Spring is coming. Ok, it doesn’t have quite the same impact as winter, but nonetheless the seasons are changing. Officially beginning on 20th March, spring will see the days getting longer, lighter and quite a bit greener. But how can you reflect that in your home? Read on for our tips on welcoming the new season into your home.

Blooming lovely

Spring is all about nature. And one of the most important, and no doubt the easiest, ways to bring it into your home is with flowers. Adding some fresh flora to your home can bring it to life in this wonderful season. It doesn’t have to be anything huge. Just a small bouquet once a week can keep your home looking beautifully seasonal.

Spring cleaning

While a “spring clean” has come to refer to any thorough cleaning, it was traditionally a practice for the springtime. It traces back to religious rituals where Catholics and Jews would partake in cleaning rituals leading up to Passover and Easter respectively. But it’s a tradition that should be kept be all homeowners to welcome the fresh, new season.

Out with the cold in with the new

With the new season comes a gradual rise in temperatures. It’s not quite the time for shorts and skirts, but it means you’ll be able to open your windows wide and fill your home with fresh spring air. With this in mind, spring is a great time to give your windows some much needed attention. Get any damage repaired and consider a full window restoration if you want to completely renew your windows.

Update your décor

Every home’s décor needs a little freshening up every so often, and what better time to do it than the start of spring. It doesn’t need to be anything major. Some light, pastel colours on the walls and floral accessories are just what your home needs to match the natural beauty of spring.

Give your food a new twist

Who said domestic improvements have to be visual? Clear out all the winter warmers and comfort foods, and fill your cupboards with food that’s fresh. Healthy food is great for spring, but seeing as it’s the season of new life, you can always just try something new. Start a collection of recipes and get some friends round to enjoy your spring-ready home.
