As the chilly weather starts to fade away, it’s time to say goodbye to the cozy vibes of winter and embrace the arrival of spring. This time of year is all about renewal, growth, and bringing a fresh feeling to your home—out with the old, in with the new!
We understand that updating your decor can be daunting, and that’s why we’re here to help! In this article, we’ll be sharing tips and tricks to help you easily transition from winter to spring. Read on to learn how to beautifully update your home and get it ready to welcome the new season.
Clearing Out Winter Decor
The first step in transitioning to spring decor is clearing out your winter decorations. While it might be tempting to haphazardly shove all your festive decor in your basement or garage, a little effort and organization can help keep your items safe and make it far easier to bring the winter charm to your home next year.
Here are our top tips for disassembling and storing your winter decor:
#1: Sort and Declutter
Start by going through all of your winter decor items and deciding what you want to keep and what you want to get rid of. Resist the urge to hold onto items you no longer love or use. This will help minimize the number of items you need to store and make it easier to find what you need next year.
#2: Clean Items Before Storing
Before you store your winter home decor items, be sure to clean them thoroughly. This will help keep them in good condition and prevent damage or mold growth.
#3: Use Proper Storage Containers
Don’t just throw your winter decor items into any old box. Invest in proper storage containers that will keep your items protected. Airtight containers, bins, or plastic containers with lids are all great options.
#4: Label Everything
Label each container clearly with a description of what it contains. This will save you time and effort when you’re looking for specific items later on.
#5: Store in a Cool, Dry Place
Store your winter home decor items in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight and dampness. Consider storing them in a basement, attic, or storage unit.
#6: Store Fragile Items Carefully
When it comes to fragile items, take extra care to prevent tangles and damage. Wrap lights or garland around cardboard tubes and store them in individual compartments to keep them from getting damaged. You can also wrap other fragile items in bubble wrap or tissue paper to keep them safe during storage.
#7: Use Vacuum Seal Storage Bags for Soft Decor
Vacuum seal bags are great for storing soft decor items like winter throws and pillows. They take up less space and help protect the items from dust and moisture.
How to Start Decorating for Spring
Spring is a time of renewal, and your home decor is a great way to showcase that! Here are our top tips for decorating your home for spring:
How to Get Ready to Unbox Spring Decor
#1: Create a Plan
Before you start decorating, it’s important to have a plan in place. Pinterest is an excellent resource for gaining inspiration and seeing what decor styles are trending. After some research, make a Pinterest board or a vision board with your favorite spring home decor images. Choose images that align with your home style and make you feel joyful when viewing them.
#2: Incorporate Spring Colors
One of the easiest ways to bring the spring vibe into your home is through color. Spring color palettes are typically light and bright, with pastels and fresh greens being popular choices. A few examples of spring-forward color schemes include:
- Yellow and white
- Sky blue and silver
- Lemon, lime, and mint
- Peach and ivory
- French blue and white
You can display these beautiful spring colors through flowers, rugs, table runners, hand towels, signs, and other decorative items.
#3: Add Spring Textures and Materials
Another way to bring spring energy into your home is through texture and material. Consider incorporating throw pillows, blankets, beads, decorative baskets, and textured vases for your flower arrangements. These items can add depth and interest to your decor.
#4: Add Spring Florals and Greenery
Spring is the perfect time to bring some freshness and life into your home, and what better way to do so than with flowers and greenery? Whether you prefer the real deal or opt for the convenience of faux plants, adding foliage to your home decor is the simplest way to bring color and a splash of nature into your home.
