Who says redecorating has to cost a fortune? This spring, invest in your home -without breaking the bank!
We all need a breath of fresh air in the spring. After hibernating for the past 3 months, we tend to tire of our surroundings and yearn for something NEW! Here are a few ideas to get you started on your spring-time spruce-up:
First, never underestimate the power of paint! A bucket of paint and a weekend worth of time, and viola! you have a whole new look! Not only can you paint your walls, but you can also look at your furniture in a new way. Anything wood or metal can be painted; just ask your friendly local paint store manager for a recommendation on the correct type of primer, paint and method.
Next, use what you have! Often, the stuff we have in our homes is great – we’re just sick of looking at it. However, if you edit your accessories, rearrange your furniture, move things from room to room, you will find that your spaces will have a fresh look without spending a dime! Try it – it’s amazing!
As we move ever-so-slowly toward spring, our thoughts inevitably turn to green grass, gardening and budding trees. Bring that springtime feel into your home! Give a houseplant a new home to add a splash of green life to your space. Or, buy a bouquet of freshcut flowers and place them in a place you will see them often. Not only will they add a breath of life to your home, they will life your spirits, as well. Add bonus: living green plants with take the toxins out of the air in your home; they are “green” in more ways than one!
So enjoy those spring decorating urges, and take advantage of ideas that won’t drain your bank account. And, if all else fails, hire an interior designer to help you freshen your spaces for spring! The investment of a few hours of design time can save you hours of time and the money of redoing a project gone wrong. And, for a little more investment, House Calls can manage your project for you by hiring a painter or other contractor to get the project done quickly and professionally. Happy spring!
