How to get your living room springtime ready in 2024

27th March 2024

It’s already March, and spring is here! It’s time to put away the winter blues and welcome the lighter nights and warmer days. With the days getting longer, it’s the perfect opportunity to freshen up your living room and embrace the new season. At Cover My Furniture, we understand the impact that some simple changes can have on the overall look of your space. By swapping a few things around and using our fitted sofa covers, you can turn your living room into a welcoming and vibrant space that the whole family can enjoy. So, let’s dive into some tips on how to get your living room ready for spring!

Declutter and deep clean

Now that spring is on our doorstep and the daffodils are in bloom, it’s the perfect time to declutter your home and make some space for some new seasonal additions. Begin by getting rid of any items that you no longer need – you can even donate or re-home them if they’re still in good condition. After decluttering, give your living room a thorough, deep clean to make it sparkle. Then, put away any winter-themed decor, such as heavy blankets and fluffy cushions, to make way for some cheerful, vibrant springtime touches. Now you’ve got the perfect base, it’s time to get to the exciting part – the decor!

Time to lighten things up

When we think of spring, we often tend to think of light, bright colours that exude freshness and make your room feel airier overall. So when it comes to changing your decor, it’s always a good idea to start with the furnishings that are easily switched out, like your curtains, pillows and throws, for example. Swap out your darker, heavy curtains for lighter or even sheer fabrics that let the sunshine filter through. It’s all about keeping your space as bright as possible. Also, change any dark cushion covers for lighter and more breathable fabrics.

Your living room should be a reflection of what spring means to you, so you should pick any colour that you like – it’s personal, after all, and there are no wrong answers! But if you’re looking for some inspiration, then creams, whites, and neutrals shades are always trusty choices. If you love vibrant shades, why not try integrating a pop of your favourite colour amongst some lighter complementary shades for the best of both worlds?

Switch up your sofa

A sofa really makes or breaks your room’s interior style. Choosing the right colours and fabrics for the looks you’re trying to achieve can really tie your entire space together. The living room is where the family spends most of their time; it’s where you sit and chat, watch TV, eat meals and share special moments – it’s truly the heart of the home.

Investing a durable sofa that will serve you for years is a smart way to make your decor cost-effective, comfortable and stylish. But what do you do when trends and seasons change, and you start feeling the itch to switch up the look of your living room? Well, that’s exactly why we’ve created our fitted sofa covers here at Cover My Furniture!
