Believe it or not, the cold, snowy weather is slowly passing by, giving way to the oh-so-welcomed spring looming in the distance.
In fact, springtime is getting closer with each passing day, and now is the perfect moment to start preparing to greet the festive season with open arms and a home that simply radiates peace, positivity, and happiness.
The best part is, you needn’t spend time or money on any grand renovations.
There are plenty of short n’ sweet changes you can introduce into your living environment to welcome the sun, the blossoming nature, and the warmer weather.
Here are some interesting ideas to freshen up your home in March.
Do some spring cleaning
It’s a bit of a cliché, but spring cleaning really is the first thing you want to tackle before you move on to bigger projects simply because it will allow you to form a clean, clutter-free environment that will, in turn, create a stress-free home.
Remember, if not dealt with first, physical clutter can significantly influence your psychological and emotional well-being.
You can start with your bedroom and slowly work your way throughout the house, making sure you leave no drawer or cupboard unturned.
You can throw or give away all of the things you don’t need or use, paying close attention to put away winter accessories as well, such as dark blankets or heavy throws, and replace them with their lighter counterparts.
Introduce vibrant colors and festive hues
Speaking of lighter hues and materials, the time has come to say goodbye to the dreary winter weather and say hello to the sounds, aromas, and colors of spring.
There is no reason why your home can’t portray a true Disney setting, save for the chirpy birdies flying through your kitchen window in the morning.
Try freshening up your accents around the house, such as adding colorful vases, picture frames, replacing the old wallpaper in the living room or the kitchen, or even giving your furniture a slight makeover with new, colorful covers.

Couple your festive color scheme with plenty of natural light during the day.
If there is anything that speaks environmentalism and begs the modern homeowner to aid in the preservation of the environment, it’s the nature blossoming everywhere you look.
Now’s the perfect time to embrace the eco-friendly lifestyle and introduce small yet effective solutions around the house.
Your main focus should be energy efficiency.
You can begin by switching to LED lighting across the board and make sure you have the number of a licensed emergency electrician in case something goes awry while implementing these changes.
Consider installing programmable thermostats as well and don’t reach for the AC remote until it’s absolutely necessary. Mother nature will thank you.
Invite nature into your home
What better way to welcome the warmer seasons than to surround yourself with beautiful greenery and colorful flower arrangements that were so dearly missed during the cold winter months?
With everything outside slowly starting to blossom, you can introduce various potted plants in the corners of rooms or on the shelves in the kitchen.
One great way to bring the outdoors in is with a unique String Garden that is easy and fun to create.
Spring flowers such as tulips, crocuses, and daffodils, among many others, work wonderfully with any room design, especially when graced by plenty of sunlight on the windowsills.
Use them to create interesting accents in every room and add a dash of spontaneity to the mix.
Update wall art around the house
Finally, you can consider a complete wall art overhaul of the house, putting away the old art pieces in order to make room for new paintings, quote art, and photos that will bring a smile to your face and give the space a fresh look.
If you’re not too big on the idea of parting with some of your favorite paintings and photos, you can simply enrich their surroundings with new material.
Spring is just around the corner, anxiously waiting to bring the warmer weather and the sunnier days we oh-so-desperately need.
With these cheerful ideas in mind, you will have a wonderful time freshening up your home to greet the festive season in March.
So happy you stopped by today. See you soon!
