If you are looking to refresh your decor for spring, you have come to the right place! Check out these great tips on decorating your home for spring.
Spring is a time for bright and vibrant colours in nature, so why not bring these colours into your home. Think pastels, pinks, greens, yellows, oranges and blues. Black and white prints are also great for this time of year. The more white, the better! These colours will help give your home a fresh and airy feeling. You can incorporate these colours through artwork, plant pots, throw pillows, rugs, curtains, placemats, table cloths, chair covers, fresh fruit, vases, flowers, candles, wall decor and more! Wherever you can find some colourful decor, go for it! It will help to get rid of the dull winter blues and bring in some upbeat, happy vibes to your home.
Bringing fresh-cut flowers into your home not only adds a beautiful pop of colour but also brings a fresh, spring-like scent! Pair your flowers with a pretty vase and you have an art piece that looks great on any coffee, dining or end table! Adding flowers to your windowsill or kitchen countertops is also a nice touch. A few great spring flowers to consider are tulips, roses, ranunculuses, hydrangeas, irises, lilies, daisies, carnations, delphiniums, and lavender. Another great way to bring life into your home is with potted plants. There are tons of awesome plants you can add to your space to provide some lively decor.

Choosing the right throw pillows to go with the season can be a fun task! No need to go out and buy brand new pillows for every season, you can just swap out the covers as a cheaper option. Amazon has lots of seasonal throw pillow covers to choose from. Chapters and HomeSense also offer lots of beautiful pillows. Any furniture store will have them as well. When choosing which pillows to pair with your decor, you can mix and match different colours, materials and patterns.

We know that rugs can be expensive, but if you have a couple of different ones to choose from, why not switch them up this spring as well. Even just swapping rugs from different rooms can be a nice change!
‘Tis the season for lighter sheets, comforters and blankets! Time to put away the thick flannel sheets and break out the nice thin, airy ones. Swapping out your sheets is sure to give you a better night’s sleep and make your bedroom look ready for spring! Switch out any blankets from the chunky, thick ones to thinner and lighter ones. You can still dress up your bed or couch with throws, and some nights are still going to be a little chilly, so you will want to have some blankets around. The buffalo check and wintery patterns can be stowed away, and replaced by floral patterns, white or bright colours or quilts.
Winter can be tough on doormats. All the snow, salt and dirt can really take a toll on the material. It may even be time to throw out the winter mat and get a new one altogether. Why not try out a spring-looking doormat that adds a fun pop of colour before you even open the door! There are tons of fun doormat designs with cute and funny quotes and pictures. Adding a new doormat is a small, but effective way to decorate your home for spring and add some colour to the front step. Plus it is also a functional item. Don’t forget that your pretty doormat is going to end up getting dirty with mud, so don’t fall in love with it too much!
When was the last time you switched out your shower curtain(s)? It has probably been a while. Did you know that you should change your shower curtain once a year? Because of all of the moisture, your curtain may develop a buildup of mould and bacteria. Not only is it a healthy choice to swap out your shower curtain it is also an easy decor switch! Adding a curtain with some fun bright colours can really brighten up your bathroom for spring.
Warmer weather means getting to spend more time outside. There is no better way to enjoy the outdoors than by sitting on some comfortable patio furniture! If you don’t have any furniture yet, now is a great time to purchase some. You can find great deals this time of year before we are into the summer season.
