10 Ways to Brighten Your Home

Apr 10 2018

Your spring cleanup of 2018 can work for your team. Start with these ideas and tips.

FlipGive is a free team funding app that makes raising money a breeze. Teams earn cash back for buying the things they already need. Get paid whenever you shop, dine out, book hotels or activities.

With longer and sunnier days ahead of us, now is the perfect time to lighten and brighten your home for spring.

Remember that your spring clean and DIY ideas can work harder if you purchase them through your FlipGive campaign. Depending on how big your family's budget is, you may end up giving up to $200 back (or more). If you purchase a Lowe's Gift Card (or through Lowes.com itself), you can get 2% of your purchases donated back to your team.

Declutter 

Put away heavy winter wear in transparent storage containers. And while you’re at it, maybe ditch some of the other items that are taking up space in your home - and your life. 

Repaint

Whether it’s classic white or a lighter shade of Pantone’s 2018 Color of the Year Ultra Violet, a fresh palette can work wonders on tired walls. Never underestimate the power of paint! 

Pillows 

Pull out the pillows for a fresh new look this spring. Fabric and color can make a huge difference in every room of your home, adding seasonal textures to lighten things up. 

Go Green

Bring the outside in with the addition of spring florals and vases. Flowers and foliage scream springtime so why not deck your home with the colors of nature.  

Garage

If, like most people, your garage has become your go-to for all items without a proper place, now is the time to go through it once and for all. Get rid of those old broken tools and out of date sporting equipment. Tell yourself it’s to make way for new stuff! 

Organize

Remember the garage? You’ll need storage to keep it from being a junk trap. Cabinets, work benches and wall mounts can help keep your garage tidy and usable. 

Get Outside

Get that garden ready. Clear out ditches, get rid of plant skeletons and prep your grass for its time to shine. No garden? No problem. Even the smallest outside area can benefit from sprucing up with containers of herbs, a lattice of climbing leaves or even small potted plants. 

Make Room

From patio furniture to landscape lighting, making the most of your outdoor space is key this spring. If you have the space, consider an outdoor kitchen. Everything tastes better straight off the grill, especially when you savor it outside.  

Replace the Drapes 

Replace the window coverings and let the sun shine in! Sheers, light blinds or even bare glass brings spring straight into your home. 

Windows/Eaves 

Don’t do windows? Consider hiring a pro. They’ll clean your windows inside and out. Most companies have options for the seasonal window and eaves cleaning. Or do it yourself with some vinegar and soft wipes. It makes a massive difference and definitely improves the view. 

(Additional tip: On top of claiming your DIY projects as a deductible on your tax returns, you can get up to 10% back on tax products or on the season's most sought-out small business solutions through FlipGive.)

    These were some interesting ways that I got to know about. Though I wanted to know about the average weight of refrigerators as I am doing an assignment about kitchen appliances. It would be great to know about it.
