The official first day of Spring was Sunday, March 20, 2022. Why is that relevant you ask? Well because…here comes the sun!! This new and vibrant season is a sign of rejuvenation—for our gardens, our minds, and especially our homes.
I’m going to take you through some ways to refresh your beloved spaces at home, without any major renovations. This article is meant for all you Nanoleaf lovers out there who already have Nanoleaf Smarter Kits (whether it be for Lines, Shapes, Elements, Canvas, or Essentials).
So without further ado, here are 6 simple tricks to breathe new life into your space with your Nanoleaf setup!
Take Full Advantage of The Nanoleaf App and The Thousands Of Scenes
Let’s start with a completely free way to refresh your space using Nanoleaf lights! You may already know this but the Nanoleaf App has a ton of special features, one of which includes a very wide selection of lighting Scenes and Playlists.
Let’s go back to the basics for a second: lighting Scenes are a mix of simple and intricate motions which are displayed on your lights in various colors. In the app, you’ll see a selection of Scenes and Playlists for all different kinds of events and moods (including a Spring Playlist). You can use one of these presets, or you can create your own with over 16 million color options to choose from. Essentially, you can paint your walls without the hassle of well, actually painting…pretty cool right?! Just in case you want to learn more about the app, here’s everything you need to know!
Completely Change The Look Of Your Nanoleaf Lines With Skins
Skins are one of our newest Nanoleaf Accessories and they work with Nanoleaf Lines. Perhaps you love your Lines, but wish your light bars were a different color…well with Skins they can be!
What are Skins you ask? These are snap-on covers for your Lines light bars, allowing you to personalize how they look even when they’re off. These cool covers come in Matte Black or Matte Pink, regardless of which you pick though it’s certainly going to make your Lines layout and space feel new.
NOTE: Lines Skins are launching this Spring. Join the waitlist to be notified as soon as they’re available!
Enjoy Refreshing Integrations like The Portal App
You’ll notice I speak about integrations in many of my blogs, but can you blame me…I love them! Integrations allow for a seamless experience and they make room for upgrades that you’re likely not able to get with just one product. Luckily, Nanoleaf has many integrations.
The one I want to focus on today though is the Portal App Integration. One of my favorite parts of the Spring (despite my many seasonal allergies) is all of the beautiful and vibrant plants that start to come back to life. This app brings all of these benefits from nature (minus the allergies) into your home, providing an immersive visual and auditory escape. The Portal App offers nature soundscapes inspired by scenes from the rainforest or calming seaside paired with breathtaking visuals. Nanoleaf lights work with the Portal App to mirror the tranquil visuals from your screen onto your lights—mimicking colors from these nature scenes and literally bringing new life to your space! Amazing, right?
Keep The Clutter To A Minimum With Cable Management
We’ve all heard it: Spring means Spring cleaning! Sometimes a space doesn’t call for an entire redesign. Maybe what you’re feeling is an itch for organization, in which case this tip is perfect for you.
In many of our beloved spaces, there’s so much tech—TVs, lamps, computers, stereos—which means the dreaded cable mess. But it doesn’t have to be dreaded, you can find many cable management solutions that hide the cables if they’re an eyesore for you (like this one on Amazon). You’d be surprised how far decluttering all those cables can go!
Just As The Flowers Grow, Your Nanoleaf Layout Can Too With Expansion Packs
This one is for those of you wanting to do more than just Spring cleaning! Just because you already have a layout out on your wall, doesn’t mean you can’t change it. One of the wonderful things about Nanoleaf lights is the customizations, so if you have the space for it, you can buy an Expansion Pack at any time and add it to your layout. You can even take part of your layout down and rearrange it (just make sure you follow the proper dismounting step), for a completely fresh look!
If you’re planning to add on I highly recommend the Layout Assistant tool. Access it online or in the Nanoleaf App to preview different layouts. If you are an iOS user and access this feature in the Nanoleaf mobile app you will actually get to see the layout in your room using AR (Augmented Reality). Also, check out these awesome designs for more inspiration.

NOTE: Flex Connectors for Lines will soon be available in the Nanoleaf Store.
With all of these tips, you’ll have the freshest space on the block! And the only thing that tops the lovely weather outside will be the incredible spring Nanoleaf vibes inside. 😁
