Spring is the perfect time to switch up your interior design and rejuvenate your living space. Small changes can make a big difference to the way your home looks and feels - and the great news is that it doesn’t have to cost a small fortune.  

Here are our top tips to give your home a budget-friendly makeover this spring… 

1. Let the light flood in

We know that our buyers love for their home to be filled with lots of natural light. Take a walk around your space and reassess each window. Are old curtains and blinds affecting the light you receive? Is bulky furniture blocking views? It’s really important that your house is flooded with natural light, so this is a quick and easy fix to make you feel happier at home. 

2. Create an appealing space to unwind

Your home is your sanctuary, so having a calming space where you can retreat to relax and unwind is essential to positive health, both mentally and physically.

Before diving into 
colour choices and searching for new furnishings, take some time to think about what relaxes you or inspires calm. It could be inspired by your favourite hobbies or pastimes. Make a list of what you love and design a space to around them.

3. Take the indoors outdoors

Outdoor space is more important to us all than ever before, so why stop at the back door when revamping your living space? There are plenty of simple changes that can transform an outdoor area. The glow of bulbs instantly creates a welcoming environment to relax in. Planters add vibrant bursts of colour, and if you don’t have green fingers, there are plenty of faux plants available that can brighten up your outdoor space all year round.   

4. Declutter

Decluttering is a great exercise for those seeking mental clarity. Sorting through old belongings that you no longer need and organising the space in which you live can help to reduce your stress levels and create a more harmonious environment for you to live in.

The first step to decluttering is to discard any items in your home that you no longer have a purpose, then reorganise your belongings in a way that works best for you.  

5. Embrace nature

Bringing flowers and greenery into your home is a great way to decorate your home and lift your interior design. Well-chosen blooms, either faux or real, can beautifully accentuate your home décor. But the benefits don’t stop there. Having plants and flowers in your home can really help to lift your spirits.
