3 Easy Ways to Refresh Your Space
When winter lifts, you begin to feel the optimism and lightness of the seasons ahead. You anticipate the warmth, the days that linger and the beauty of sunrises. You finally come out of your long hibernation, and parties, reading by the pool and wearing shorts are part of your life again.
Your home might also need to be refreshed after winter. Here are three ideas:
Out of Sight, Out of Mind
Feeling overwhelmed by how certain parts of your general space or your rooms currently look? Maybe it’s time you packed away your seasonal items. When you no longer need the extra blankets and your winter jackets, they will annoy you and make your space feel cluttered. Pack them away, as well as your boots, warm slippers and heaters. Your space will start looking like new and ready for the seasons ahead.
On the Right Path
So, you’ve spent what feels like an eternity hibernating in your home, thankful for your trusty rugs that have kept the cold at bay in their respective rooms and your feet warm when you decided to go padding around barefoot. But come summer, rugs need freshening up too.
Collect all your rugs and have them washed. If they are too heavy and warm, consider rolling them up, packing them away and switching to lighter rugs placed sparingly around your home.
‘Tis the Season to Bloom
Pull nature into your space with flowers. While they are beautiful and add a pleasant fragrance, they can start burning a hole in your pocket quickly. So don’t get them every week. It’s doable to buy a bunch of flowers once a month – twice if there’s a special occasion. Try to keep them alive as long as possible; there are various tips and tricks online how to do this.
Alternatively, you can buy potted household plants, which will last you as long as you take care of them. House plants are much easier to maintain than flowers because they are still living and – provided that you water them frequently – will continue to live and thrive.
