1. Add a splash of color
Take a cue from Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year (Greenery) and add some punchy accents to your space. Inspired by nature, this year’s hue adds vibrance and a sense of excitement wherever it’s used. If you prefer a warmer statement, try some red and yellow throw pillows, new artwork or even accent rugs for a change of pace.

2. Add some plant life
Bring the outdoors in. A few well-place house plants not only help make an interior feel complete, but they can also help clean the air in your home. Adding accent lighting to highlight larger plants can also contribute to a more complete layered lighting design.

3. Change your light bulbs
This one seems like a no-brainer, but do a quick scan of the fixtures in your home to ensure all non-working bulbs are replaced. Take the opportunity to replace bulbs with more energy efficient lighting options like LEDs, if your fixtures are equipped. Not only can this help in making a space seem bigger and brighter, but it can also save you money on energy costs.

4. Clean Your Windows
Make sure this one is on your spring-cleaning list! Removing the grime that can build up on the inside and outside of your home’s windows is a quick, inexpensive way to instantly make your space brighter and more welcoming.

5. Change the window treatments
Heavier window treatments are great for adding another layer of insulation during the winter months, but opting for lighter, brighter or neutral colored sheers can take your windows from ho-hum to fresh and crisp. You can even try a bright pattern that coordinates with your new brightly colored accents to complete your spring refresh.
