5 ways to prepare your home for spring

Refresh your walls

It’s amazing the difference artwork can make in a room – from bedrooms, kitchens, hallways and even bathrooms, hanging posters and art prints can instantly transform your space and affect the mood of a room. With spring around the corner, lighter, brighter prints are a great choice as they'll lift your scheme. You could even move around existing art prints to refresh your space.

For high-quality art prints at low prices, Posterlounge is a great place to start your search. They cater to a huge range of interior styles, from vintage film posters to classic works of art as well as more contemporary abstract prints, for as little as £5.95! We love this pink abstract design which is perfect for a sweet, spring look.

Spring clean

You can't have a spring refresh at home without a spring clean! Before you get going, however, why not try making your own eco, DIY cleaning solutions? Or check out these top eco cleaning brands. By opting for chemical-free cleaners you'll not only reduce harmful toxins in your home, but also in the environment as a whole!

When it comes to the actual cleaning chores, do an inspection of your home and make a list of areas that are in need of attention. Then tackle your list slowly, one day (or even weekend) at a time. Areas that are sometimes forgotten about include door handles, sideboards, tops of cupboards and windows.

Don't forget to check out your soft furnishings too! Spring is the perfect time to deep-clean carpets, rugs, curtains, cushions and blankets.

Switch up soft furnishings

With the weather warming up, cosy throws, boucle fabrics and faux-fur cushions might not be in such high demand at home. Spring is the best time to store away the heavier, winter-appropriate, soft furnishings and crack out the lighter linens and cotton items.

Refreshing your bedding style, whether it be through colour or pattern, is a lovely way to welcome in the new season. Or how about swapping in a new statement cushion cover? Sometimes the little things can have a huge impact.

Add spring fragrances

Prepare your garden

There are plenty of things to keep busy with in the garden before the onset of spring. Planting summer bulbs, tidying up flower beds and borders and cleaning out your greenhouse are just a few things to tackle.

If you don't have an outdoor space, investing in some houseplants is a must. Spring is the time to shuffle any existing plants you have indoors too to make sure they are getting appropriate light levels (most houseplants like bright, indirect light) and it's also a good time to start considering propagation by repotting and making cuttings of your most thriving plants. You can give these offshoots to friends and family or keep them for yourself and increase your plant display!
