Refresh Your Home on a Budget This SpringMarch 17, 2023 3:29 pm
There’s something utterly rejuvenating that comes with the spring season. After several months of cold and bleak weather, many of us feel compelled to freshen up our homes and welcome the energy that comes with the new season. But knowing where to start when giving your home a new look might be challenging.
If you want to refresh your home in the Colony master-planned community without breaking the bank, here are five simple ways to welcome spring inside and out.
Declutter & Clean
Spring cleaning may be cliché, but there’s nothing like a tidy and spotless home. Clean your windows to allow light in, touch up chipped paint, and thoroughly clean any sections of your home that are in need of some TLC.
Mop your floors, vacuum your carpets, and, most importantly, declutter. Ask yourself if you still really love each piece. Does it still feel like your style? If not, consider donating or selling it on a local buy-and-sell site or on Facebook Marketplace. Getting rid of extra clutter always makes a space feel more welcoming.
Because spring is all about renewal, consider adding more storage to keep clutter away. If you need more space, try using multi-functional furniture to hide items from public sight.
Sprinkle in Bright Colors
Spring is a time of rebirth and renewal in the outdoors, so your home interior must reflect this. While those darker colors were appropriate during the winter, it’s time to replace them with pastels and bright colors. For example, swapping out an area rug with something brighter is a simple way to add a splash of color.
Decorate with Flowers
Adding a bouquet of fresh flowers or greenery is one of the simplest ways to refresh any area in your home. You can simply clip a small bunch of wildflowers from your backyard and place it in some water for a week or two. Branches with buds, daffodils, and ferns are all easy to come by, and add a natural touch to any space.
If you don’t have those items, seek a bunch of tulips or fresh Spring florals at your local grocery shop. They’re typically priced well and will brighten your space for weeks!
Decorating with fresh flowers is simple and can be done in any room of your home. There’s no spot that cannot benefit from the presence of a few flowers, from dinner party centerpieces to nightstand-friendly bud vases.
Switch Throw Pillows
Searching for a quick improvement that can be completed in an afternoon? Switch out throw pillows and blankets throughout your home for a quick and easy refresh. Whether you choose vibrant-colored throw pillows or something more neutral, changing out textiles is a terrific way to make a room feel brand new.
Upgrade Your Lighting
Lighting is another way you can update your home for spring. As the days become longer, strive to optimize natural light in every space, and don’t be afraid to rearrange floor or table lights or swap out lampshades. To create a perfect spring evening, use wall sconces or candles as you unwind. The subtle lighting in place of bright, overhead lights can help you relax and can even improve your sleep.
If your ceiling still has a decades-old light fixture, spring is a great time to replace it with something slightly brighter. A woven pendant lamp in the living room alters the space and serves as a centerpiece. Switching out fixtures is easy, even for a novice, and it’s a superb way to modernize any room.
With the days becoming longer and the fresh aroma of spring in the air, it’s that time of year when we’re all looking forward to some warmer weather and sunshine.
