7 effortless ways to refresh your home on a budget

Spring is finally on its way, and between the sun staying out a bit longer, birds singing, and flowers blooming, I’m ready to refresh my home! If you’re looking for affordable ways to update your home this Spring, you’re in the right spot. It’s time to transition out Winter items and hit the reset button with these 7 Effortless Ways to Refresh Your Home on a Budget.


Effortless Ways to Refresh Your Home on Budget

1. Rearrange the furniture

There are few things more satisfying than a new furniture layout. Growing up, my mom would do this almost once a month. It was so fun to change things up, and it felt like a new place. Even in small spaces with few layout options, you can still accomplish this. Try moving plants, art, or swap out smaller items from other rooms.

2. Deep clean your closests

They don’t call it Spring cleaning for nothing. 😉 Clutter can make you feel like your home is falling in on you. Going through the closets about twice a year is a good way to prevent buying things you don’t need. Even though organizing isn’t a drastic change visually, it will give you peace of mind and make your space feel refreshed.

TIP: If you find décor items you didn’t know you had, but aren’t going to use, go ahead and donate them right now. I received a ton of home décor items as wedding presents, but they weren’t my style. I kept them in storage for almost 5 years because I felt bad for donating them. Save yourself the turmoil and storage space; just go ahead and donate them right now. You’ll thank me later!


3. Add in pops of crisp white

We tend to favor warmer beige colors in the winter, and there’s nothing wrong with some warm beige. For Spring, try to incorporate some pops of bright white into your décor. Introduce a white vase, throw pillow, or throw blanket. Adding crisp whites will help create a fresh color palette.


4. Change out the throw pillow cases

What better way to change the look of your home than with a pillowcase change. Purchasing new pillow covers for your throw pillows is the best way to change your mood for seasons. Additionally, pillowcases store easily and can be swapped out without spending a lot of money.


5. Swap out the rug

If you want to totally change your space’s look, swapping out the rug is a great way to get a new look. No, you don’t have to spend a fortune on a brand new rug. Try checking out resale sites or inexpensive online options like RugsUSA. You can even buy a smaller rug (5×7) to layer on top of a larger, less expensive rug.


6. Find a Spring signature scent

Using scent in decorating is invaluable. Research shows that our memories are tied to scent. So, smells impact our home’s overall vibe more than we think. Finding a signature scent is another way to create a Spring atmosphere and help transition your home into the new season.

7. Add a new plant or live greenery

You know how I love my Trader Joe’s greenery, but for real, live greenery is really the cheapest and easiest way to brighten up a living space. If you’re not a plant person or mainly have fake greenery in your home, consider adding something living. The good thing about temporary greenery is that it’s going to die anyway, so no pressure! I promise it’ll make all the difference.
