With the spring fast approaching, many home owners start considering the idea to make some changes around their properties. Doesn’t matter if they live in them or if they want only to rent them to someone soon. The problem is, that some of them don’t even know how to start. There are so many things to do, that they are just not sure what to do first. That’s why here I’ll revise some ideas about how to do a spring makeover of the house or property.
The first thing you can do is to change the wallpapers in the rooms. And don’t even think about dark colours! The spring is a time of change, when everything sprouts back to life. Everything becomes bright and cheerful. You should do the same with your house. It doesn’t need to be a one colour wallpaper or even one kind of wallpaper per room. You can experiment and apply different colour schemes onto each wall of the room. Of course, you need to be careful with the choices, because too much of something good becomes bad. You can also try wallpapers with stripes or spots – they will cheer up the rooms. If, on the other side, you’re on a budget, you can use paint. The same rule can apply.
Another thing that you can do in the name of the spring makeover is to buy some new rugs to freshen up the property. For this time of the year, you can try a rug with floral arrangements. Or maybe if the room is too bright for your taste, you can try to get a rug with darker colours, and if it seems too dark – brighten it up with some lighter colours. You’ll see that in this case the contrast is a good thing.
A simple, but a great idea is to bring some plants into the house. Nothing tells better that there’s a spring coming than sprouting plants. You can even paint the pots in different colours.
Another great idea is to get some new frames or even paintings with bright colours in them. If your budget is limited, you can try to make the artwork yourself. It doesn’t need to be good – you can call it “abstract”. You could also buy a new chandelier or a new ceiling fan, or just a cheap lamp. Actually, any kind of change is great in spring, because the season itself is all about the changes in the nature.

Also, if you have the will, you could clean up the place. This would be probably the easiest way to spruce up your apartment or house. It would be good to de-clutter all the shelves and wardrobes, scrub up all the floors, and maybe fix some small defects like cracks, holes or chipped paint. If you want, you can even rearrange the furniture to give the place a new style
