Spring is upon us once again and there is no better time to give your property an interior design face-lift than spring-cleaning season. As the days grow longer and brighter, you may feel it is time to do away with your winter defences and make some changes to your home. If you are up for it and are looking to make the transition from the winter blues into a more bright and airy home; here are 5 spring interior design tips to inspire and get you started.
Refresh your wallpaper and paint
An easy way to make a change to your interior design is by refreshing the paint or wallpaper of your homes’ rooms. A fresh lick of paint or injecting some patterns or colour through the use of wallpaper is a great way to give your home a spring update. Non-expensive options such as standard paints and removable wallpaper mean that refreshing your homes’ wall should be both cheap, and easy.
Green and Eco-Friendly Decorating
Eco-friendly lifestyles are all the rage in recent years and what better way to show off your green credentials than to use your spring decoration to inject some environmentally friendly décor? This can take the form of only using toxic-free paints and household products, recycling and restoring old furniture, or buying pieces for your homes’ interior from eco-friendly stores.

Another on-trend style is vintage interior décor. Whether you own buy to let properties or are just looking to refresh your family home, going vintage is a bold style statement which won’t disappoint. Everything from cabinets to light fixtures can be sourced from vintage furniture specialists to give your home more of a touch of nostalgic, romantic feel.
Getting creative involves a little bit of arts and crafts, and if you enjoy this some ideas include making simple artwork to hang on your walls, or making tabletop ornaments out of recycled materials. Even creating a living display out of old containers and filling it with soil, moss and plants can make a huge difference to your interiors. By tapping into your creative side you can refresh your home at very little cost.
Give your Furniture a Facelift
Another spring interior design tip that won’t cost the earth is to give your homes’ furniture a facelift. Ideas include repainting picture frames and window sills, re-upholstering chairs, or giving table and countertops a fresh coat of lacquer or paint.
Whatever your situation, or your tastes and interests, there are literally thousands of ways you can prepare your interiors this spring. Hopefully the five tips above are enough to give you some inspiration to get started!
