Winter is over and spring is here—the season of change and fresh starts. As you look around your home, it might start feeling boring and drab. You’re ready to switch things up.
But wait before you take out your credit card to splurge on new décor. You don’t need to spend a lot of money, or even a lot of time, to refresh your home for spring. We’re going to show you how in this post.
Not that you shouldn’t invest in some quality spring décor. If you choose high-quality, timeless pieces, they can last for years. But you don’t need to go out every season and buy a lot of new decorations.
Start by Spring Cleaning
Sometimes our homes feel dull and tired due to the amount of stuff we have. The best way to prepare your house for spring is to sort and deep clean everything you own. Once you start donating and trashing items you no longer need, your home looks much tidier and feels fresher without changing a thing.
Change Your Linens
Switching out your comforter, pillow covers, tablecloths, and other linens is a simple way to update your space with minimal effort. It’s also cheaper and more space friendly.
Create a New Table Centerpiece
Look around and see what you already have to make a new table centerpiece. Using a variety of items, you can easily design your own décor to freshen up the table and improve your mood at every meal.
Redo the Mantel
Updating your mantelpiece is a simple way to freshen up the entire room. You can rearrange the décor, add new greenery, or switch the art on display. The same thing goes for any decorative shelves or collections you have.
Use Plants and Flowers
Embrace spring by using flowers, greenery, and plants while decorating. Real flowers and plants add sophistication to any home but need daily care. For longer-lasting results, buy high-quality fake plants at places like Marshalls or Home Goods.
Switch Your Wall Art
Are you tired of looking at the same old prints and paintings on your gallery wall? Change them out. A supply of extras in storage is perfect when redecorating. Plus you won’t have to buy all that expensive art at once.
Update Your Bookshelf
Have your books been in the same order on your shelves for years? Then it’s time you try rearranging them by author, subject, or even color. The new order will make old books feel beautiful and new again. Also, consider changing out any knickknacks you keep on the shelves.
Rearrange Your Furniture
You don’t need to buy new furniture to update your space. Try moving it around instead. Put a kitchen chair in the living room. Move your bed to the opposite side of the room. Play around and see what you can come up with.
Switch Decor and Knickknacks
Even small things like changing the vase on your bedside table can make a room feel fresh. Keep a supply of small decorative items in storage and put them to use whenever you’re ready for some change.
Redoing your space doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive. It only requires looking at your area with new eyes and seeing the opportunities it presents.
