Storage Tips

Spruce Up Your Home With These Tips

Give the front door a fresh coat of paint.

What better way to present an inviting entrance for your guests than to paint the door a beautiful, springtime color? Think about colors that match the season, such as robin’s-egg blue and buttercup yellow. You could even go a bit bolder and paint the door a vibrant red or green. If you have colored shutters, consider matching the door’s color with them to create a cohesive look.

Liven the outdoor living space with greenery.

Yes, plants are usually found in the yard, but what if you brought them onto your porch? Strategically placed plants and flowers can turn a drab porch into an inviting gathering space. Consider updating your patio, deck or porch with colorful potted plants and flowers to create wonderful curb appeal for your passing neighbors.

Update your patio furniture with new prints.

While you’re updating your porch or patio with plants and flowers, why not upgrade the furniture as well? A new patio set, such as a chaise lounge with matching chairs and a table can transform your outdoor space into a place where you can chill with a book or host a party with friends. Look online or in the paper at your local home furniture shops for deals on cool patio furniture for your outdoor area.
