The current climate is tough, and we’re all spending longer at home. But with spring now officially underway and many of us finding ourselves with more time, why not give your home a makeover turning it into a space that you can truly be content with?
Display the things you love
It might sound obvious but instead of focusing too heavily on what’s in, why not focus on what makes you happy? This could be photos of your friends and family or trinkets from holidays abroad. Objects that allow you to reminisce will always put a smile on your face.
Enjoy cooking? Display your cookery books to add a bit of character and colour to your kitchen? Got a favourite music artist? Frame the record and hang it high for all to see. This will be different for everyone and hence allows you to show off your individual style.
Include bright colours
It has been scientifically proven that brighter colours can improve our concentration and overall mood. Certain shades can have a huge impact on how we feel in our homes, so it’s important to choose a palette that works for you. Ideal for working from home, light blues and greens can boost productivity. Green is also affiliated with nature, offering a calming atmosphere for the mind and body.
Uplifting shades such as yellow can also be a great addition bringing with it connotations of spring and happiness. Find a colour that makes you feel good as an individual and unleash your creativity.
Add some greenery
With trees in bud and blooms blossoming, spring is a time for fresh life and new beginnings. Bring the outside indoors and add some daffodils to your kitchen table and a cheery pot plant to decorate your window ledge. Letting in lots of light and surrounding your space with plants is a simple, but effective way to lift your spirits.
And, it won’t just make your space look revitalised. Plants are a great way to purify the air within your home, leaving you feeling refreshed without moving a muscle.
It’s time to wash winter away. There’s a reason that it’s called a spring clean. Sort through and organise your belongings into three piles – keep, bin and charity. You could also see what items could be upcycled to create something totally new. A tidy room equals a tidy mind, and can leave you with a clear head happier for when summer rolls around.
And if you’re looking for somewhere to store your items, bespoke built-in furniture is just the thing. Not only is it a great alternative for those who don’t like to throw anything out, but they’re perfect for keeping your belongings safe and organised.
