The Awesome Quick Home Makeover Ideas
Quick Home Makeover Ideas #1; Cleaning Time
Sometimes our spring cleaning efforts don’t always go according to plan, so if you have some time off in Summer, there is plenty of time to clean your home and give it a refresh.
Quick Home Makeover Ideas #2; Break Out the Pastels
Now that your home is all spick and span, you can start to think about how to make it feel like summer! Update the decorations and finishes to put you precisely in the right mood for the season
It’s time to move on from the warm blankets and plush cushions of the colder months! A great way to immediately make your home feel brighter and fresher is to change out your cushion covers.
- Try a mix of different pastel colours to find your perfect look.
- You can spruce up the rest of the house by using brighter bed sheets!
- Buy new floral artwork or pastels
- Hang some new canvases
- Use floral tablecloths and some light decorative edging around your shelves (or even some bunting).
The homeware departments of most high street shops are perfect for you to find new summer appropriate decorations for your home.
Quick Home Makeover Ideas #3; Fill Your Home with Fresh Flowers
Filling your home with lots of fresh springtime flowers is a great shortcut to livening the place up and getting you into that summer groove.
I love placing wildflowers in vases all over the home, especially on my mantelpiece.
Roses and lavender are the go-to classics for summer! Keeping a few bunches of these on display throughout your home will leave it looking bright and smelling fantastic.
Adding lavender to a simple jar can be a beautiful display piece on a mantle as well as allowing the smell to freshen up your space.
Quick Home Makeover Ideas #4; Start a New Project
One of the best bits of spring is that it is a literal breath of fresh air for your creativity and mind space. Brighter, warmer, longer days will leave you feeling raring and ready to go, so this is the perfect time to start a new craft project like adding washi tape to drawers.
You could even add decor to your walls using washi tape! There are a lot of different ideas that you could try.
Whatever the craft, summer will have you feeling reinvigorated and bursting with new ideas. You could also channel this revitalised energy into decorating your home by working in bright colours and pastels. Soon your home will be bursting at the seams with summer creations on display.
I’m a huge fan of adding paper flowers, paper Pom poms, fans and decorative garlands to a room to spruce it up and add a little visual interest.
Just like that, you’re home is all prepared for summer and everything that comes with it. You can look forward to lovely days in the sun, frolicking in the flower patches and a brighter, fresher home that feels perfect for the season.
