Brighten Up Your House For Spring With HGTV Expert

Have you ever been shopping in a hardware store with every intention of updating your home, but secretly wishing someone from HGTV would pop out from behind a large plant and rescue you? I wouldn't mind a helping hang, and this is exactly what HGTV’s home improvement show accomplishes.

Designer and host of HGTV's Room Crashers', Todd Davis, looks for unsuspecting homeowners in stores across the U.S. who could use some help with their home improvement projects. Once he finds them, Davis follows the surprised shoppers home and completely transforms their rooms into a "model home."

Since March 20 marks the first day of spring, what better way to welcome the warm weather then a little spring-cleaning.

HGTV’s Todd Davis provided us with some great ideas at the Washington Home & Garden Show this month to update and improve your home at a low-cost.

His suggestions include:

  •  Paint: There are thousands of colors and that can be confusing, but pick your favorite one and don’t worry about it. If you don’t like it, you can paint over it.   Paint is cheap and has a big effect on a room.
  •  Plants: Bring plant life into a room. It can really brighten up and soften a room creating a fresh atmosphere. The Croton plant is becoming very popular.
  •  Natural light: It’s a very uplifting way to improve a room. Skylights are a fantastic way to bring in natural light.

 

Todd Davis also recommends a few spring trends and ideas:

  • Bring the inside out: The biggest trend right now is the movement into the outdoors and blurring that threshold from the inside to the outdoors. One way to accomplish that is by tearing a wall out, and throwing a big header to support accordion doors. Make sure you have a finished patio.
  • Wallpaper: Wallpaper got a bad “wrap” in the 70’s but it’s coming back big. Don’t do all four walls, just one wall and then provide an accent color to make the wall really pop.
  • Design for you: Don’t design your home for someone else. Don’t buy a bunch of small accessories; buy one element of art that you’re really proud of that will have a huge effect on a room.
