Wishing for an Early Spring!
As the weather gets warmer, most homeowners are ready to wash away the winter blues and prepare for spring. The warming sunshine and refreshing rain causes the trees to start budding and flowers to bloom. But before you get caught up in landscaping and yard work, here are a few tips to spruce up your home and also get it into the vibrant mood of springtime.
The easiest way for a noticeable change in a room is to apply a new fresh coat of paint. Spring is a season of bright, vibrant colors as well as pastels. It is a great exercise to get inspiration from Mother Nature. Some people will stick with a neutral wall color and introduce splashes of aqua blues and crisp greens. Even if you find a crazy color that you love, try just painting one wall and see how it fits with your home. You may be surprised how a different color on the walls can make your old furniture look new again.
In addition to the walls, spring is a great time to put a fresh coat of paint on your front door. Even if you do not wish to change the color, a new coat of paint on the front door and frame will definitely brighten up the entry. Remember to clean your door first to rid it of the dust and grime that gathers throughout the seasons. It is also a good time to check the seals on your doors and windows. Since small cracks can allow heat in and out, replacing the weather stripping will reduce your energy bills all year long.
