Spring is one of the best times of the year to sell a home. The weather is beautiful, the flowers are blooming, and there is a feeling of regrowth in the air. In order to make the most of this time of year, we recommend a few ideas to help maximize the springtime in your home.

Take Advantage of Natural Light
If your home has a wealth of natural light, make sure that comes through when it is toured at an open house. You can do this by opening the windows and turning up the blinds. If you wish you had a little more sunshine, strategically place mirrors so that they can actually reflect light to make it seem slipcover, bigger, and brighter in the space.
Create a White Couch
White is the official color of spring. If you already have a white couch, give it a thorough cleaning. If you have a couch that is a darker color, get a slip cover made in a bright, beautiful white. You can use it in summer and spring, then return to your original couch in the winter and fall. If you want to make an even smaller commitment, buy a large white throw and tuck it over the back of your couch for a touch of white.
Bring Nature Inside
When you think about spring, what is the first thing that comes to mind? If you are like many people, the first thing spring brings to mind is green plants, beautiful flowers, and nature waking up from her winter slumber. Make sure you bring this beautiful natural look inside. That could include bringing in flowers and plants, light woods, and anything else that brings nature to mind.
Do Not Be Afraid of Color
Yes, we suggested that you utilize a white couch to set the background, but do not lose sight of the fact that spring is a bright, cheerful season. Use oranges, pinks, blues, greens, and yellows to add a pop of color. Do not overuse color but you can add a few candles, a throw pillow, or a rug to add beautiful color. You may be surprised by how much a seemingly small amount of color can make a big difference.
