Spring Renewal Ideas for Your Home

Posted on under IDC Profile

With the winter doldrums behind us, spring is the perfect time to brighten and breathe new life into your home. Whether you want to make a design statement or renew an underutilized space, showrooms and designers at the Indiana Design Center (IDC) can help you to refresh your home with style and design functionality.

Outdoor Oasis

Creating an outdoor living space to enjoy in the spring, summer and fall months can be a wonderful investment and spending time outdoors is a great way to unwind from the day. As technologies have developed, the amenities that we enjoy inside our home can be extended to your “outdoor room”. For the perfect lounge area, Indiana furniture manufacturer, Outré, developed an outdoor furniture line as comfortable and stylish as indoor furniture.

If you love to entertain, outdoor kitchens outfitted with grills, sinks, stovetops, warming drawers, prep space, cabinetry and refrigeration allow you to gather with guests while cooking your entire meal outdoors.

High-tech grills allow the grill master to perform multiple cooking tasks at once. Hestan grill from Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting, suite 101.

 Let it Shine

Replacing a light fixture in a room is one of the most simple and effective ways to dramatically set a new tone for a space. Design trends are showing a mix of traditional and modern design elements and a modern light fixture over a dining room table or a series of pendant lights above an island can transform the feel of a room. The Ferguson showroom features hundreds of lighting options on the showroom floor. From clean lines to a dramatic scale, or matte black to rose gold finishes, the design possibilities are endless.

Finishing Touches

If you’re craving an update but not ready for an overhaul, consider switching out your accessories and trying bold patterns on less permanent items like throw pillows. The Drapery Street showroom reports that vibrant tropical prints are trending and there’s no better time to embrace them than spring and summer.
