Spring renovations – Out with the old and in with the new

Spring’s arrival always brings on a sense of renewal, optimism and the burning desire to get things done around the house! It’s the perfect time of year to harness that energy and put it to good use. Thankfully, you don’t have to take on a massive renovation project in order to make your house feel fresh and new. There are simple updates virtually anyone can tackle that will spruce up your space and make your home feel renewed. Let’s get started!

Update Paint

A place to begin? New paint. It’s amazing how a fresh coat can transform a room. And while it can take a little time and a touch of patience on your part, updating paint colors is the quickest way to make a room feel brand new. These days, you don’t need to be afraid to have some fun with color.

Blush pink is having a very serious moment right. If you stay away from the bubble gum hues and instead pick a warm, earthy almost clay-like shade, blush can feel neutral and inviting.

Soft blues are another wonderful choice. An icy blue shade is a lovely alternative to a classic gray. Its cool elegance has a serene depth that pairs well with neutrals and warm brass accents.

If you need help figuring out the perfect color for your space, look no further than what is already there. Simply find a shade already in the room and use that on your wall.

Update Light Fixtures

Another easy update? Changing out your old light fixtures. You know that ceiling light that drives you crazy? Or that tired chandelier from a bygone area that is still hanging in the dining room? Swapping outdated lighting for something more modern, and ideally timeless, is like putting a new necklace on an old outfit. Suddenly everything feels fresh and new again.

Bathroom Updates

Bathrooms feeling blah? Before you tear out tile or rip up floors, there are some quick and simple cosmetic upgrades that can make a really big impact. For a fast refresh, a great place to start is your bathroom hardware. All you need is a screwdriver! While chrome might be classic, both brass and black options are very of the moment and will help make your space feel contemporary.

 

Kitchen Updates

When it comes to tackling a kitchen upgrade, you can make a dramatic difference by applying all three tactics mentioned above: a new paint color, updated lighting and modern hardware can give a tired kitchen an immediate facelift.
