1. Get a fresh coat of paint
Painting an accent wall, or even a whole room, is a quick and easy way to add a burst of color and freshness to your home. Choose a bright, spring-inspired shade such as pastel blue, soft yellow, or mint green. You could also stick with a beautifully clean eggshell or cream. Remember to prep your walls properly before painting, and use high-quality paint for a lasting finish.
2. Update your cabinets
Give your kitchen or bathroom a facelift by updating your cabinets. You can either paint them in a new color, replace the cabinet doors, or even just swap out the handles for a quick and easy makeover. Colored cabinets like sage green or navy blue are definitely in vogue right now, and that could be the perfect way to add some lasting spring vibes to your home.
3. Boost your curb appeal
First impressions are everything, and if you’re looking to add value to your home, boosting your curb appeal is a great way to do that. Add some colorful flowers and plants to your front yard or porch to show your neighbors spring has sprung. Update your mailbox, house number, and front door hardware for a polished and contemporary look. Power wash your driveway and walkway to remove dirt and grime, and repaint or restain your front porch or deck to give it a fresh look.
You can also add some outdoor lighting to highlight your home’s best features at night while improving security.
4. Upgrade your bathroom
A luxurious bathroom can be a big selling point that can add value to your home, and it doesn’t have to cost a fortune.
