Spring is in full bloom! It’s a time of late sunsets and warm breezes, but you don’t need to step outside to soak up the season. Make your home feel brighter right now, and you can enjoy the freshness of the season indoors.
While “spring cleaning” is pretty standard, “spring redecorating” might sound like a whole different beast, but it can make all the difference in your home. Your redecorating doesn’t need to be major. With these six easy changes, you can make your home feel brighter and invite the spring season in.
1. Start with the basics: light sources
You’re ready to make your home feel brighter, and you can probably guess the best place to start. Lighting makes a world of difference. The more natural light you can bring into your home this spring, the better, but, where natural light falls short, think through how you fill in the gaps.
The higher a light is hung, the more it’s able to simulate natural light. Recessed lighting is a huge help in adding brightness. You don’t have to limit that light to your ceilings, either. Build recessed lighting into cabinets to add even more warmth.
