With spring in full bloom, homeowners minds are turning to gardening, backyard parties, and of course, the dreaded spring cleaning.
Once the gutters are cleaned and the windows scrubbed, why not freshen up the look of your space with a quick makeover? With just a few modifications, your home can look as fresh and seasonal as the daffodils popping up in your front yard.
Here are a few home makeover tips from Sure Fit Home Solutions to help you get your home ready for spring.
Moving furniture may be the easiest way to change the look of your space. Try rearranging a room, or trading out furniture from one room to the next. That unused rocker could look great by the front window, it just needs to get brought up from the basement!
Restoring the finish on your furniture is a great way to enhance the style of your home. Forget spending a ton of money on new furniture, and learn how easy it is to restore and refinish the pieces you currently have. Set up shop in the back yard to enjoy the warmer weather! (DoItYourself.com)
Do it Yourself Details:
Pay attention to the little changes that can make a big impact. Swap out cabinet hardware for an updated look in the kitchen, or cover up throw pillows with sunnier colors and textures for a warm weather update. (Anthropologie.com, Surefit.com)
Quick Cover Up:
Freshen up your furniture and protect it from muddy feet and melted popsicles with a semi-custom slipcover. Leading slipcover provider Sure Fit has an extensive selection of fitted and tailored styles in an endless array of colors and materials for couches, chairs, recliners, futons, ottomans and more. They also provide “Tuck-Once” tools and grips that help to lock your slipcover in place for a natural, fuss free solution. (Surefit.com)
Bring the Outside In:
Fresh flowers are one of the best ways to make your home feel fresh and new. Pick flowers from the yard, or place a wheatgrass planter on the windowsill for a great springtime addition.
