Spring Clean Your Home
At this time of year many of us are turning out the winter cobwebs, planting seeds, and giving our homes a thorough Spring clean. However, why not go that one step further and give your house a completely new facelift? You don’t need to completely redecorate to update your home, but by adding a few of this season’s key pieces, you can dramatically brighten up your home.
To keep your kitchen updated this Spring, add eye-catching geometric shapes and shiny silver tones to your kitchen’s colour pallet. Silver will reflect rays of Spring sunshine and brighten up your kitchen with minimum effort.
