Spring is *almost* in the air and that means the start of fresh beginnings and turning new leaves. For homeowners planning on putting their house up this spring, it’s time to start getting in the mindset of buyers: stage a home that anyone could feel welcome and comfortable in. During the spring season, this usually means curating a space that is warm, bright, and cheerful – and among a slew of new listings, your home needs to stand out.
So, what’s the key to achieving all that this season? Here are some of our favorite tips from Realtor.org to help you out!
- Find a balance between naturals and metallics.
Natural elements such as plants, succulents, and greenery around a home are always factors to include when trying to brighten up a space. Plants make the air seem fresher and a room seem livelier. With metallics as a trending home decor aesthetic, one new spring look to try can include combining the naturals with the metals for balance that is on-trend as well as classic.
2. Update your paint.
Whether it’s a fresh coat of the same color, a new color, wallpaper, whatever you’re feeling this season – give your space life with a new paint job! New paint can truly do wonders to a space, often making them look brighter and even larger. Updating your paint doesn’t have to only be an inside job; giving your front door a fresh coat can be a quick and easy way to enhance the curb appeal of your home.
3. Add fresh bedding and new throws.
Nothing makes a home more inviting than a cozy looking bedroom, and what better way to make a bedroom look cozy and welcoming than fresh, new sheets and a big, fluffy duvet or comforter/sham set? No more pilling throws or that quilt you’ve had since you were 12 – new sheets in colors that match your overall room’s aesthetic and new throws to make living and nook spaces look comfy-cozy. As long as you’re keeping in mind good, complementary colors and patterns to the look the room, as many cozy and fluffy accent pillows and blankets, the better!
