Christmas is not the only time of the year for festive decorations. With Easter around the corner, you want to reach out for your craft kit yet again. The best part is that you feel even more enthusiastic about it because spring is around. It is time to get to work and make sure your living space is all set to welcome guests for the Easter weekend. While you may not expect to go as big as with Christmas décor, there are ways to enhance your living space with easy, practical, and affordable ideas. Here are some worth trying this season.
Get started with spring cleaning
Since spring comes along with Easter, you can prepare your home for the festival with a spring cleaning spree. You will probably do it anyway, but the good thing is that a declutter project gives you a clean slate for decorations. Start cleaning up room by room to refresh the entire living space. Even better, give away the redundant stuff to a local charity to live up to the spirit of the festival. Once you complete the cleaning project, you are all set for decking up your place.
Refresh your walls
If you have time and a budget for a paint project this spring, go ahead with it ahead of Easter. You will have a fresh and bright space for the festival. You can even do it only in the living room. Check trending hues for the season or opt for a wallpaper project for a less messy job. Consider creating an accent wall and leaving the rest for a super-quick job. Hang some family pictures, invest in new wall art, or paste festive decals to complete the look.
Buy new decorations
Although you may be tempted to reuse your Christmas decorations for Easter, it is always better to be more festive-specific. You can find the best Easter decorations online and need not spend a fortune on them. They go well with the spring décor, so they are worth buying. You can even add some DIY elements like decorating eggs with temporary tattoos, displaying wrapped gifts, and creating a balloon arch.
Bring in nature
Flowers and greens make integral elements of Easter décor. Bring in nature by getting some potted plants from your garden. You can also decorate the space with fresh flowers in vases. Your living space will be Easter-ready with minimal expense and effort with this idea. Not to mention, the fragrance and freshness add to the positivity of the space. Draw the curtains open and let the light flood in.
Tackle the maintenance jobs
While decking up your home will be on top of your mind this Easter, do not forget to tackle the maintenance jobs beforehand. The last thing you want to deal with is a plumbing leak or chipping roof when guests are around. You may probably have some problems to tend to after the harsh winter. Inspect your place and call experts to handle the maintenance issues. Having a local plumber assess the plumbing problems is going to make sure you don’t have a massive water bill. Leaks can easily be overlooked, especially if they are behind a wall or have been trickling for a long time. You should always look at your water bill properly in case there’s signs of excessive use. This way, you will have a stress-free weekend with your loved ones.
Easter décor is inherently easy and budget-friendly, as a little goes a long way.
