Spruce up your home for spring


Spring is a time to pack up the old and usher in the new! As the temperature rises so will your mood – it’s time to re-introduce colour, fresh air and new furniture around the house.

If the warmer weather has you itching to spruce up your home, here are a few ideas that spring to mind.

Add some colour

Touches of colour can instantly lighten and brighten up your space. A few colourful accent pieces around a room, a bright piece of art or a bold cushion will add fun splashes of colour and spring vibrancy to your home. Affordable vases and colourful stacks of books on a coffee table or console will do the trick in any room.

Bring the outside inside

There’s nothing that says spring quite like the smell of fresh flowers and by adding plants and greenery to the inside of your home, you instantly create a connection to the outside. A bowl of lemons is so cheerful and spring flowers like tulips are less expensive and more readily available while they’re in season.

Declutter, clean and bring in something new

It may be a bit of a cliché to spring clean, but there’s nothing quite like a tidy and clean home. Clutter detracts from the overall function and beauty of your space – so box it, sell it or donate it.

Spring is all about freshness, so think about adding more storage to keep clutter at bay. If you don’t have much space, try to use multi-purpose furniture like TV stands and coffee tables with built-in storage where you can hide items easily.

Simple accessories like new towels in the bathroom, new pillows on the bed, or even a new couch can change the vibe of an entire room (and change your mood too).

Freshen up your patio

Your outdoor area has probably been neglected for a few months, it’s time to relook this space as you can use it to entertain in the warmer weather. Look around for new patio furniture, a gas braai and even a new TV or that bar fridge and get this area ready for spring!

It’s time to shake off those winter blues and add some cheer to your home!
