The sun is coming out, the evenings are getting longer and the buds are turning green. Spring is nearly here, and it’s time to get your home ready. Here are some simple tips from our experts to capture the spirit of the season in your home:
Flowers and arrangements
Nothing quite says spring like daffodils. They personify the opening act of spring, bursting with colour and brightness. Daffodils are relatively cheap to pick up, and are great to place on your hall table so you’re greeted with the glow of spring as soon as you walk through the front door.
Likewise, flowers in the kitchen will add a fresh, bright approach to one of the busiest rooms in the house. We recommend a brightly coloured bloom placed on the windowsill to help maximise the light and a fresh, vibrant scent to your kitchen.
Laminate flooring is great at reflecting natural light, maximising it and making your home brighter. With a range of shades on offer, you can go as light or dark as you choose, giving your home a modern look in the process. We stock a wide range of colours and styles of laminate flooring, which you can view here.
Colour and tone
Single-block colours in shades that echo those of springtime flowers and plants work particularly well, and can be used to highlight pieces of furniture to make a statement – for example, a dining room table or coffee table.
Tonal varieties such as blues, greens and yellows have a more gentle effect when used together – alternatively, mix and match contrasting shades to create a bolder colour scheme.
After the dull winter months, a change of accessories may be in order to brighten up your home. We suggest purchasing some new cushion covers with floral patterns or botanical designs to scatter on your bed, sofa or chairs. These will instantly add a touch of colour to your home. The same applies to your bed sheets – treat yourself to a bright new duvet!
And finally, let as much natural light into you home as possible! Without natural light coming through your windows, it’s pointless having interior products that will reflect it. So, tie back your curtains, open your windows and get natural light and fresh air flowing through your home!
