Spring is the season of rejuvenation and renewal, a time to shake off the cobwebs of winter and welcome new beginnings. It is also the perfect time for spring cleaning! Spring cleaning involves deep cleaning your home, decluttering your space, getting rid of things you no longer need, and adding new items around to welcome in the new season. Here are a few tips on how to rejuvenate your home sustainably!
When decluttering, you may come across items that no longer serve you. But you
know the saying: One man’s garbage is another man’s treasure. And what a perfect
time to pack them all up and bring them to your nearest thrift store as a donation!
Many people use thrifted items to decorate their home, their office, and even their car. That old vase sitting in the attic could be the home of a bouquet of flowers at another house.
2. ADDING DECORATION
The way you decorate your home says a lot about who you are as a person! With
seasons changing, you may find yourself thinking of revamping your look and vibe.
Adding new decoration to your home can help bring who you are as a person alive
through the comfort of your home. Adding focal pieces in specific areas of your home can brighten up the room without the need of lamps or windows!
3. MOVE YOUR FURNITURE AROUND
Believe it or not, the positioning of furniture in a home can cause a huge impact on
how your home looks. Whether you place your dining table vertically or add a mirror
in your living, it can all cause your home to look different. Try changing things
around. Maybe placing a coffee table in your living room can fill that “empty” spot
your home was missing all along.
4. ADDING PLANTS
The best way to welcome spring is by inviting it into your home! And what a better way to do it then to add some greenery into your home. Plants have been scientifically proven to help with increasing levels of creativity, perfect for a new season, one where you can let your creativity roam and create things you never thought of!
5. BUYING COLOURED ITEMS THAT MATCH YOUR HOME
Colour contrasting is so important when choosing your decoration. Knowing what
colours match together makes it easy when purchasing decoration for the home, as
well as knowing where to place each item. A green vase with a brown table is better
than a green vase with a grey table, don’t be that person that can’t colour contrast.
When it comes to decorating your home, creativity is your best friend. Let your mind
go wild and roam to places in your mind that are unreachable, and let your hands take your home from boring to beautiful in this upcoming spring! Follow us on all socials @NationalThrift and let us know how you would freshen up
