How to Give Your Living Room a Springtime Makeover

Spring is officially in full swing, so if you haven’t already done so, now is the time to get your home ready for the warmer weather. More specifically, you’ll want to spruce up your living room to bring more cheer and comfort to this well lived in and sociable living space.

Here are a few helpful tips to help you get started revamping your living room this season.

Give it a Fresh Coat of Paint

Perhaps the easiest, most affordable thing you can do it completely change the look of your living room with minimal effort while drastically changing its style, is to splash a new coat of paint in the walls. Whether you choose to paint the entire room or simply stick with one “accent” wall, a new paint colour is a great way to go.

When choosing your colour, consider bright, cheery tones that are more reminiscent of the season. Colours like soft blue, lime green, pale yellow are great options. That said, feel free to go with a hue that best suits you.

Create a “Gallery” Wall

If you’ve got plenty of open space on a wall to play around with, consider turning one into a gallery. Hang your favourite family photos, your children’s artwork, or simply art pieces that really speak to you.

Don’t be afraid to mix and match frame sizes, styles, and colours, as this will really help to make your gallery wall a unique one.

Replace Your Cushions

Out of all accessories in a living space, cushions are amongst the easiest to instantly change the colour and feel of the décor. To inject a spring-like ambience in the room, choose cushions in vibrant colours and patterns.

You could even replace the covers of your existing cushions with a completely different fabric to brighten up your space. This spring go for fashionable patterns like florals and geometrics.

Add Fresh Florals to Your Coffee Table

A quick and easy way to bring the springtime into your living space is by simply adding a bouquet or two of fresh flowers in your favourite spring pastel tones.

A bundle of florals has an effective way to brighten up an interior. Plus, fresh flowers allow a beautiful fresh scent to waft through your home as well.

Giving your living room a makeover doesn’t have to break the bank or involve heaps of elbow grease. With a few simple changes, you can create a cheery living room that will totally complement the cheeriness of the season.
