How to Brighten Up Your Home in 5 Easy Ways

Springtime leads us outdoors to breathe in fresh air and soak up abundant sunshine. However, staying indoors should also evoke feelings of transformation and renewal. Try these 5 easy steps to brighten up your home this spring season.

Clean It - Ready to finally rid your home of all those old clothes, toys, and appliances that are just sitting around gathering dust? Pack up everything that you no longer have a use for into boxes and donate to the local goodwill store. Pairing up with a few neighbors and hosting a weekend garage sale is also a great way to de-clutter your home.

Color It - To brighten up an entire room, experiment with light paint hues. An effective springtime color palette can consist of soft yellows, greens, corals and blues. Adding a bright colored loveseat or armchair can also liven up a room. For a similar effect, place multi-colored pillows on a white or neutral couch, or add a pastel colored rug over top of hardwood or tile flooring.

Plant It - Lilies, Tulips, Daisies and Snapdragons are excellent choices that will bloom a little life into your home. Rather than waiting around for April showers, place flowerpots on tables and windowsills around the house. Planting an indoor herb garden in your kitchen will enrich your home as well as add flavor to your cooking. To preserve and fortify your plants, water them with flat club soda.

Fix It - Time to transform into the handyman and fix those repairs your house has been patiently waiting all winter for. Easy home improvements include replacing old drawer handles and light switch covers, switching out your toilet seats, or repairing a leaky faucet.

Fake It - Maybe you live in a place where spring has yet to arrive and there are still traces of last week’s snowstorm on the ground. Despite Mother Nature, you can still surround yourself with the sights and smells of spring. The scents of Tangerine Zest, Rose Petals, and Fresh Linen will remind you that spring is just around the corner.

Even new homes in Tampa Florida can benefit from a little TLC. No painting or repairs needed, but why not adorn your wall with a pleasant colored painting or purchase a few spring scented candles. Brightening up your home is just that simple!

Great tips Jon!  Especially this time of year when we want to see signs of spring so badly! 

FYI - My son lives in Tampa as well.  It is beautiful there!
