The spring is a time of renewal. The grass grows and becomes green. The snow melts and the air temperature gradually increases. The birds begin singing, and people walk around with smiles on their faces. It is a period of change, and if you own a condo or loft, there are a few easy ways to update your home to reflect the turn from winter to spring.
Set aside a day to clean your place. Washing the windows is an easy way to let more light in and improve your view. In most places, dirt and grime accumulates on windows during the winter months. There are all sorts of window-cleaning options, but using newspaper and a little vinegar mixed with water works well. It’s also a good time to clean your closets and stash your winter clothes. Have some furniture that just clutters your space? It is a great time to get rid of it.
One of the best ways to bring the outside inside your condo or loft is with fresh flowers. Choose bright colors and put them on your table, the mantle or in your bedroom. You can get flowers just about anywhere, but check and see if there is a farmers market where you live. Many urban areas have them, and you likely will be able to find a wide selection of flowers at a good price.
There is no better way to change the look of your condo or loft than applying a coat of paint. Spring is the time of renewal, so why not renew the walls? You will see a big difference even if you paint the walls the same color they are currently. Remember, too, that furniture can be painted. So if you have a piece that is showing its years, rejuvenate it with a fresh coat of paint.
Rugs and drapes
Put those big rugs that were so cozy during the winter into storage. You can still have rugs on the floor, but light-colored, cotton versions are more appropriate for the season. The same goes for drapes. If you have heavy and dark-colored drapes, take them down and replace them with shades or sheers. Doing so will change the feel of your home and help you let the light in.
Take stock of the accessories you keep around you condo or loft. It is a good time to update things like throw pillows, bedding and towels. Consider a light color pattern that reflects the season. Also, check the pictures you have on the walls. If you have frames full of personal pictures, consider changing them out with new pictures. It is a cheap and easy way to update your décor.
