5 Ways to Spruce up Your Home this spring 1. Social Seating
4. Assured Safety
Cluster your living room furniture in a social way. if you live in a Philadelphia Row Home that has a long and narrow space, break it up with more than one seating area to create a nice flow in an otherwise difficult format. Keep in mind that a desirable conversation area is about 10 feet in diameter.
Test all of the carbon monoxide and smoke alarms in your home. According to “Smoke Alarms in U.S. Home Fires” from the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA), “In reported home fires in which the smoke alarms were present but did not operate, almost half (47%) of the smoke alarms had missing or disconnected batteries.” An annual check to make sure these things are in working order is the best way to keep your family safe. Make it a habit to check alarms and batteries annually when you change your clocks for Daylight Savings Time.
2. A Fashionable Approach Follow fashion magazines and take inspiration from the latest design trends for home accessories. Interior design follows fashion. Home décor can be updated every two to five years in shared spaces like living and dining rooms.
3. Clever Colors Don’t be afraid of color. If you have reservations about selecting colors for walls and furniture, pick a palette of three colors from one of your favorite art pieces. You also can select from a favorite ensemble in your closet. If your closet and art is full of neutrals, a color consultation with Henck Design is your best bet!
5. Tidy Containers Spring cleaning should be more than sweeping dust bunnies out from under your bed. Don’t forget to address any clutter or disorganization in spaces like closets, pantries and those South Philly basements! Stash seasonal clothing and blankets in stackable Rubbermaid containers for dust-free use, next year.
Of course, if you ever need help with the interior design or flow of your home, we are here to guide you. Designing for you,
