Even a single houseplant can instantly brighten your space. Plants are not only good from a visual point of view, however. They also help to clean the air, catch dust, and even provide a sense of calm. With many water-wise options available, it is best to avoid plants that require a lot of watering. The easiest plants that require minimal upkeep include dracaena species such as corn plants as well as ficus species such as rubber plants. Palms and bamboo also help to add greenery.

Go bold.

If you’re looking for something more drastic, a focus wall will certainly brighten things up quickly. Rather than painting the entire room, focus walls allow you to play with colour by focusing on just a single wall. Those who love colour could choose a softer shade for the remaining walls or keep those white to increase the dramatic effect of the focus wall. Try jazzing up your dining room, passage or kitchen to bring in some colour. Colours that are great for spring include turquoise, green, pinks, coral, and even purple. To get the best effect from a focus wall, it helps to keep your decor minimal and neutral. That will allow the colour to pop without being overwhelming.

Inspire calm.

Feeling stuck and in need of a full change? Tired, bored or simply feeling a bit cramped in your current bedroom? Create a bedroom sanctuary with a few carefully selected pieces, such as a modern wooden bed and matching nightstand and dresser. Pair with blankets, cushions, rugs, and bedding in soft neutrals that further help to inspire a sense of peace and tranquillity. Remember, your bedroom is meant to be your retreat where you can escape the world. You can enjoy plenty of renewal even by focusing only on this room. A revamped bedroom can do wonders for your well-being, making this perfect for your spring redo. For more tips, view our guide to planning a minimal bedroom.
