Spring is springing. What is it about spring that makes us think about cleaning up, sprucing up or even redecorating? The air is fresher, daylight lasts longer and there’s a new spark of energy around us. We might as well put that to good use, right? Let’s talk about the ways you can add to the comfort of your space.
For obvious reasons, let’s talk about your home flooring first.
Sprucing up home flooring
What current condition are your floors in? Was there any damage done from tracking in water, snow, and salt during the winter months? On a solid surface floor such as hardwood flooring or laminate flooring, this can be addressed by using a product specifically made to “refresh” your floors. This floor rejuvenator removes the dulling haze that can form on home flooring and also helps to disguise any scratches that may have happened as a result of the winter wear and tear.
If your floors have been too heavily damaged for a cosmetic lift, perhaps you want to think about replacing them at this time. Important flooring questions you need to ask yourself are:
- Do I want the same type of flooring?
- What would I like to change about my flooring?
- Where should I go for great flooring advice? (hint: Atmosphere Flooring, of course)
If you decide that you want to keep your existing home floors, there are some changes you can make to help freshen your space.
Flooring accessories are a great way to change things up without incurring huge expenses. When considering the different types of flooring accessories, think about area rugs, throw pillows, art and lighting. Floor accessories can easily be adjusted many times throughout the year, giving your interior space a new look with each season.
Window coverings can have as much of a dramatic impact as you want in your space. You can keep it subtle so that it blends, or you can make a statement with your beautiful windows. You will want to think of the amount of natural light you get, as well as how much privacy you require. Side panels are easily changed to suit the season and coordinate with any blinds you may have.
Repainting your home’s interior or a particular room is a simple way to give your space a new feel. With virtually thousands of colour choices available with paint, the options are endless. There are far fewer colour choices when it comes to flooring and floor accessories. A fresh coat of paint is a great to way to coordinate all of your pieces while removing all of the fingertips and smudges that may have gone unnoticed up until now.
