10 Tips to Bring Spring into your Home
Wave goodbye to winter and welcome in spring with our top tips to bring spring into your home.
Nothing says ‘spring is here!’ like a beautiful bunch of fresh cut flowers in the home. Brighten up your kitchen, bedroom or living area in your home with a vase of elegant flowers or a flowering plant. Things like tulips, lilac, freesia and iris are just perfect for this time of year. The flowers in this picture beautifully compliment the free standing furniture from The Living Collection.
There are so many different scented candles on the market these days and adding a few to your home can make a big difference to its feel. Go for fresh scents for spring time such as clean linen scented candles. Alternatively you could choose citrus smelling candles like lemons and oranges to complement the spring season as well.
Feed the birds
Spring is a great time to admire wildlife and a brilliant way to do this from the comfort of your own home is to add a bird feeder outside your kitchen window. Now, we know you don’t need more reasons to spend even more time in a Sigma 3 Kitchen, but watching the birds flutter around outside as you cook up a spring time feast is sure to put a smile on your face and have you embrace the spring season.
There has never been a better time to start a mini, indoor herb garden than when spring starts to appear. Coriander, thyme and basil are all great ones to start with and you will always have fresh ingredients to cook with. They also make for a great decoration on a windowsill or hanging in baskets in the corner of your kitchen. This beautiful kitchen belongs to Lisa Davies.

Splash the colours
Quite often, spring is associated with pastel colours such as soft pink, light azure, creamy mint and whimsy yellow. You can easily add these into your kitchen by placing accents of these colours throughout your kitchen with different utensils like a mixing bowl, tea towels, tea and coffee jars and popping pastel coloured cups and plates on display with open shelving.
Cook with seasonal foods
Make the most of the spring season and have a browse at what interesting meals you can make in your kitchen with vegetables and other foods that are in season during this time of year. Rhubarb, cabbage, new potatoes and purple sprouting broccoli are just a few to get your taste buds tingling. Have a browse of our recipe blog posts for some inspiration.
