Spring Cleaning & Updating Feature Walls

Spring is almost upon us, and everyone is starting to think about ways that we can spruce up our space. If you have been spending more time than ever in your own home lately (and haven’t we all?), you probably want to change things up and refresh your house in some new and interesting ways. Working, resting, and spending time with family in one place makes it look old and tired that much quicker – but what needs to change to make it feel new again?

Are you struggling to pinpoint how exactly you can alter your home without breaking the bank or knocking through a wall? Read on and we will give you some tips and tricks for spring cleaning and updating one of the most interesting things in your house – your feature wall!

Clean it up

When you are doing everything in one place, it can be easy to get into a little bit of a mess. Sprucing up your space starts with a spring clean – that means a much deeper clean than just the odd dusting and vacuuming session and wiping down the surfaces.

Spring cleaning means really getting in there – wiping the smudges off the walls, scrubbing tiles, investing in proper woodcare, making sure you finally vacuum and dust the skirting boards, and getting into all those hidden nooks and crannies, like on top of the fridge.

One of the best ways to do a successful spring clean is to involve other people in your house. Hand out jobs and stick to a schedule. Not only will this keep everyone busy, it also makes the work go by much more quickly!

Clear the Clutter

Minimalism is still very much a topic that everyone is thinking about. Even if you don’t want to get rid of all your favourite things, and you prefer bright florals to clean whites, you can still downsize a little. Simply going through your old clothes and kitchen utensils can help you to seriously reduce the amount of clutter in your home.

Out with the old and in with the new! After all, do you really need that broken spatula or the winter coat you bought five years ago and never wore? Not only will decluttering make it easier to keep your space clean, it can also help you to feel calmer and less frazzled – simply because there is less to tidy up.

Feature wall refresh

One of the most impressive parts of a modern home is the feature wall. Used as an eye-catching alternative to hanging lots of pictures, a feature wall can be a different colour, or even a scene, which is often surrounded by walls painted in a more neutral shade such as magnolia.

Is your feature wall looking a little worse for wear? A striking and bright wall can be a thing of beauty, but faded paintwork ruins the appeal. Using the correct primers and undercoats will leave your feature wall ready to look vibrant again, and it will stay that way for longer, even when you are in a sunny room. Using the right Crown Trade paint to refresh your feature wall, whether choosing a whole new colour or just giving the old shade a bit of brightening up, could make your entire room pop.

Little Things

Once your home is clean and tidy and your feature wall is looking gorgeous, treat yourself to some little things that can help you to feel more at home in your beautiful space. Adding a tasteful throw to your old sofa can brighten things up considerably, and investing in a magazine rack will keep the coffee table clear.

When all is said and done, light a scented candle and relax with a nice, calming cup of tea. After all, you earned it!

Do you feel ready to tackle your household and create a beautiful, fresh feeling space to do your job, socialise and relax in? As they say, a change is as good as a rest – so get to work!
