How You Can Brighten Up Your Home This Spring

With spring being finally upon us, a lot of us will want to give our home a spring cleaning. It can sometimes feel like certain areas got neglected over the winter and we need to brighten things up. Having a bright and airy home is so nice during warmer months. You might not be going away on vacation, but it can feel like you are if you have a bright and happy home. Here are a few ways that you can brighten up your home.

Mirrors

Getting a few more mirrors around the home can make such a difference. They make rooms look larger, and they reflect the light from windows. So as a result, it makes rooms much brighter. It is worth investing in a few large mirrors and using them in areas like stairways and hallways. Those areas are quite open anyway, but they will seem so spacious and bright with mirrors in them. Something to do in your room is to get a few different shaped mirrors, but that are all a similar size. They can be arranged on a wall in a mosaic style. It will look so cute and of course, add brightness to the room.

Lighting

If you have a home that is naturally quite dim, you want to make sure you have plenty of great lighting. You could choose a few floor lamps to brighten corners of the room that don’t get well lit. You could update a fixture to a chandelier style light. As there is room for a lot of bulbs, it can make the room look completely different! Another option is an LED light strip. It could be for around the bed frame in your room or a children’s room. It adds brightness and sparkle to any room. It would also work as a bedside lamp for when reading books on an evening.

Lighting in a bathroom is to be considered too. Could you put some lights around the mirror in the bathroom? The reflections from the mirror will make it sparkle and give your mirror that movie star look. Bathrooms can be quite dark because of the frosted glass, so you could choose spotlights too. They make sure that every part of the room gets well lit.

Update the Paint

It makes sense that rooms looks brighter, the lighter it is painted in, right? Think about giving some of the rooms in your house an update with a lick of paint. You could choose whites or creams. Pastel colours like lemon would work well too. If you can’t face doing the whole of a room, you could just paint a feature wall. Just painting one wall in a brighter colour will make a difference. It will add a new dimension to the room too.

Blinds instead of Curtains

If you use blinds instead of curtains, it can lighten up the room a whole lot. Curtains can be quite thick and heavy. They can make a room look a little stuffy and not brighten it at all.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
