Spring Decorating Ideas for Your Home

Here are some great spring decorating ideas that will help to reflect the season inside your home.

Are you interested in a new look for your home that will match the upcoming spring season?  Changing your home’s interior from time to time can bring a fresh and reinvigorating vibe into your life, so why not take advantage of the new season and its colors and themes to reflect all of this in your own home?  There are several creative, fun and simple ways to bring the feel of warmth and rejuvenation into your home, so here are some great spring decorating ideas that will help reflect the new season inside your own home.

Spring Colours

One of the quickest and easiest ways to bring spring into your home is to change up your colour scheme.  This can be as easy as changing your throw pillows and quilts or blankets in your living room to as complex as changing up your wallpaper or paint.  Citrus colours, as well as bright and vibrant choices, are great spring colours, and you can even go with pastel colours that are more synonymous with Easter.  Either way, your home will look brighter and reflect the spring season.

Bring Your Gardening Inside

Gardening does not need to be something you only do outside.  Bring some of your potted plants or flowers inside!  A nice set of flowers will cheer up any room, so look for floral patterned pots to really bring spring alive in your home.  Another advantage of bringing in some of your potted plants or flowers is that they will get a head start since the growing conditions are far more favourable indoors.


The days are getting longer, which means that you will have more natural light in your home.  Think about replacing some of your electric lights with the soft glow of candles.  To really welcome the spring season, find bright candles with springtime scents such as fresh flowers or orchids.

Dinner Time

Bring the spring candles we mentioned above into the dining room to set the stage for a nice dining décor.  While you’re at it, think about changing your placemats and napkin set for ones with bright spring colours; think about bright greens or pinks to really give your dining room that spring look.


Chances are your doormat is in need of changing; they can only take so many winters before they finally break down and no longer prevent dirt and debris from entering your home. Consider replacing your doormat with a welcome sign that reflects the spring season, and you’ll be surprised what a difference a new mat will make.  Make sure to also find one that has a rubberized bottom to keep it in place so that it can do its job.
