With the warmer spring weather right around the corner, does anyone else feel the urge to spring clean? There’s something about opening up the windows and letting the fresh air breeze through the house that feels so refreshing after a long winter. Check out these inspiring tips and ideas to refresh your home with some simple DIY improvements.
A simple way to spruce up any room in your home is to add some fresh flowers. Keep a bouquet in the kitchen, bathroom or entryway and enjoy the fresh smell all week long. It’s sure to make you smile!
While it isn’t quite gardening season yet, you can add some green to your kitchen with a cute, DIY herb planter made from an old mug.
If you love colour but fear the commitment of painting a whole room, try painting or wallpapering just the inside of your cabinets and cupboards. It’s an easy way to add a pop of springtime colour to your kitchen.
In the bathroom, add some trendy textiles by swapping out your linens. Go for bold geometric prints for a fun update that’s also on trend this season. Apply this thinking to your shower curtain and bathroom accessories too.
As the saying goes, April showers bring May flowers; but the weather can also be mucky this time of year. Any parent with kids or pets knows how they love to splash in puddles and get dirty while playing outside, which is why your mudroom can also use a spring upgrade. Consider installing a doggy shower like this one to make bathing your pet fun and convenient. With Saniflo’s up-flush plumbing technology, your pooch can have his own shower in as little as one weekend! The Sanishower, a small drain water pump, easily installs under a shower base or inside a bathroom cabinet for quiet, efficient operation.
If you’re upgrading your mudroom, consider moving your washer and dryer out of the basement while you’re already in ‘reno mode.’ A mudroom complete with laundry equipment is a great idea for homes with kids. You won’t need to worry about them tracking little footprints through the rest of the home you just freshened up.
Lastly, floral décor and pretty accent pieces instantly make your home feel fresh and new for spring. We love this adorable DIY birdcage decoration!
