5 Ways to Freshen Up Your New Townhome This Spring

5 Ways to Freshen Up Your New Townhome This Spring

The change in seasons brings a fresh new start to everything, and your home should be no exception! Our new residents at The Towns at Parke West have a turnkey home, but that doesn't mean it can't be styled to reflect the spring season! Here are 5 easy ways to give your townhome a little seasonal flair.

Declutter and Maintain

No one looks forward to cleaning, but spring is the perfect opportunity to go through your home and purge anything you don't need anymore. And this leaves more room to showcase fun decor for the new season!

It's best to declutter room-by-room so it's more manageable. Make sure you're really sticking to the task at hand by setting a timer for each room and challenging yourself to finish in that amount of time.

Take a few minutes to dust, sweep, or wipe down any surfaces once you've decluttered. Now you can move onto the fun stuff!

Add Bright Or Pastel Colors

Spring is known for vibrant colors, so take advantage of this and add some playful pops of color to your townhouse. 

Focus on hues that will make you feel cheerful and energetic, like bright pinks, yellows, and greens. Here are the current season's Pantone colors for some inspiration.

You can incorporate color in a number of tasteful ways:

  • Painting one or two accent walls
  • Displaying throw pillows or blankets with fun patterns
  • Hanging brightly colored artwork
  • Picking out colorful scented candles
  • Adding curtains to windows

Bring in Some Nature

One of the best things about spring is the blossoming of new life. Why not bring some of that inside your home? 

Plants and flowers are the perfect way to do this. Not only do they add a touch of natural beauty, but they can also improve air quality.

Beautiful spring flora and fauna that grow well indoors include:

  • African Violet
  • Peace Lily
  • Anthurium
  • Jasmine
  • Geranium

If you're not great at keeping plants alive, don't worry! There are plenty of faux plants and flowers that look just as good. 

Decor that showcases butterflies and bees also make for a pretty and natural addition to your townhome’s style.

Get Your Outdoor Space Ready

The Towns at Parke West features beautiful views of Glen Burnie from 3 story sunroom extensions and second-story decks. These outdoor spaces can be used in the springtime to enjoy the weather, relax, or entertain!

If you don't already have an outdoor furniture set, now is a great time to invest in one. Consider what you plan to use the furniture for:

  • Do you want to host dinners at sunset? If so, you’ll need a table with plenty of seating.
  • Do you like to lounge and read in the afternoons? Then a well-cushioned sectional would be a better fit?
  • Do you have children or pets who enjoy the fresh air? Then avoid barstool seating and opt for durable, machine-washable fabrics.

Accessorize your outdoor space with other warm-weather decor like patio umbrellas, string lights, and planters. These additions will make it feel like an extension of your home.
Whether you enjoy spending spring indoors or outside, we hope these tips will give you the inspiration you need to freshen up your townhome!
