Spring is in the air. The evenings are lighter, the days getting warmer, and this time of year is the perfect opportunity to give your home decor a refresh. We're not talking major projects, we mean small improvements you can make to spruce up your space for very little time and money. Here are our top five:


1.Bring the outdoors in

It’s still a little chilly to be sitting in the garden, so why not bring the outdoors in! A top interior trend for 2018 is indoor plants. Not only are they an inexpensive way to add some colour to your home, they are rumoured to do wonders for air quality. Just what we need after windows and doors being firmly shut and the heating being on full blast during the winter months.

House plants are hardy things but if you’re worried about their survival rate in your home, cacti are a brilliant choice. Artificial plants are worth a look too and are often just like the real thing! Plant them in some colourful pots or hang them from the ceiling for a real WOW factor.


2.Lighten your wooden floor boards

If you're wondering how to give a room a refresh but are reluctant to paint the walls, then staining wooden floor boards in a lighter shade can do wonders. Take inspiration from Nordic and Scandinavian homes to get that cool, calm and stylish look. A light floor can help a room appear more spacious especially when paired with light walls and is a real statement addition to your home.

3.New look kitchen cupboards

If your kitchen is looking dated but a whole new one is out of the question, then give it a new look by painting your cupboards. A lick of paint can give a room a whole new feel and it’s a budget friendly too.

You don't have to stop at just painting either. Replace the cupboard handles or change the splashback to create simple, wallet-friendly upgrades.


4.Give your garden fence a pop of colour

Transforming your outdoor space doesn’t need to mean getting muddy in the flowerbeds! Giving you garden fence a fresh coat of stain or exterior paint can do wonders. If you want to play it safe and keep the wood texture, then a simple stain a few shades lighter will refresh the weathered look and keep your fence protected from the elements.

5.Liven up your accessories

Refreshing your home for spring doesn’t need to mean redecorating at all. By investing in some new accessories, you can give any room in your home an update. Think about adding some colourful and textured cushions or a new rug to your living room and bedrooms, where soft furnishings are right at home. New blinds or curtains work well in the kitchen and bathrooms and are an inexpensive way to change up the colours and patterns in a room.
