It’s time to say goodbye to the cold, dark days of winter and hello to a fresh new look in your home.

Follow our tips to refresh your home for spring.

 

Flower power

Bring the great outdoors into your home with an eye-catching floral centrepiece - try these indoor begonias which are bright, colourful and easy to maintain.

Or for a subtle lift, try Aloe Vera – this low maintenance plant, which only requires watering when the soil is dry, is tipped to be one of the hottest houseplants of the year by The Joy of Plants.

 

Spring cleaning

The arrival of spring is a prime opportunity to give your home a good, thorough clean.

Be ruthless in your decluttering - if it hasn’t been used in the past 6 months, consider whether it's worth keeping.

If you're looking for inspiration to get you started, House Beautiful has compiled a handy guide for effective spring cleaning.

 

Let the light in

Take your lead from the new season and lighten up your decor.

Spruce up your rooms with a light, bright colour palette and replace your curtains with lightweight blinds or sheer curtains to allow the maximum amount of natural light in.

 

A splash of colour

Spring in bloom makes us think of bright reds, blues, greens, pinks and yellows - all of which can liven up your interior scheme.

Try these cushion covers from Dunelm Mill, or this new collection of rugs from Next.

 

Switch up the scent

As well as brightening up the aesthetics of your room for spring, change your candles and replace old air fresheners to bring in a fresh scent.

Candle powerhouse Yankee has a range of seasonal scented candles to refresh your home’s aroma.

If you're not a fan of candles, use house plants to give your home a sweet scent.
