Decorating Tips to Brighten up Your Home This Spring

2 story Solar Shades

Spring is here and the change in season is a great excuse for revamping your interior design. This means it’s time to put everything that reminds you of Winter away and break out all things Spring inspired.

Here a few decorating tips to help brighten up your interior and exterior décor this season.

1.Replace bulky window treatments with sheer ones

Usually in the winter, we block our windows with heavy and dark fabrics to keep out the cold air. Well it’s time to let that sunlight back in!
Thinner fabrics for your window treatments allow more natural light into your home, which helps brighten the space and gives you more opportunity to enjoy the Spring views.
Try adding Sheer Curtains or Solar Shades to your space to achieve this.

2.Add brighter colored fabrics.

During this season, trees begin to regain their gorgeous green leaves, plants start to blossom, and everything seems to be much brighter.
Bring this brightness inside as well by adding vibrant or pastel colors to your home.

3. Make your neutral’s pop by adding accent colors.

If you aren’t into bright colors and are more of a neutral person, adding simple accents can help. With this win-win situation, you can have a “splash” of color added to your interior decor without sacrificing your neutral preferences.

4. Install exterior drapery.

Since the weather will be heating up soon, you are going to want to spend more time outdoors. Why not spruce up your patio, lanai, or porch with outdoor curtains.
Outdoor curtains add a nice elegant touch to your exterior and gives you the ability to create a closed space when needed such as to block out insects, rain, and provide better shading.
