With spring comes a desire to freshen up our spaces. As we start to get rid of the clunky winter wear and clear out the fuzzy blankets, we sometimes feel the need for a space refresh.
Right now, though, finding the budget to truly freshen up your space might not be in the cards. That’s why we’ve found some small, affordable ways for you to change up your living space with easy fixes. These simple DIY projects will have your home feeling revived, fresh, and clean in no time at all.
Pillows & Pillow Cases
Sure, pillows aren’t exactly cheap. But you can find some affordable buys at stores like TJ MAX, Home Goods, and Bed, Bath, and Beyond. Or, if you want to save even more money, grab some decorative pillowcases off of amazon and repurpose the pillows you already have.
Throw pillows are a great way to add a new look to any room, and if you’re smart about your purchases, you can swap things out on the cheap.
Peel & Stick Wallpaper
If you’re sick of your simple white walls, grab some removable wallpaper off Amazon, Chasing Paper or Walls Need Love. The vibrant and decorative options will add a pop of color to any room.
The best part is that the wallpaper is made to be removed. So, you don’t have to worry about getting in trouble with your landlord if you rent or removing it when you get sick of it.
Bring the outside in
Plants are a great way to freshen up your space and add a little color. Whether you go with real plants or fake, it will look like you thoughtfully tried to bring life into your room.
They are especially great at filling space you don’t know what to do with. Have an empty corner? A weird entrance hall? Think about putting some plant life in the space to make it feel brand new.
Colorful decor or sculptures
You know those weird and wacky pieces you’re drawn to in stores, but you can’t put your finger on why? Sometimes, those are the things we should scoop up. Fill in space in your bookshelf with a bright pink flamingo or a neon cactus.
These modern pieces of decor liven up and add personality to a room that might otherwise be simple. One little wacky thing never hurt anyone, so give it a try.
Interesting light fixtures
Something as easy as a new stand-up lamp or a fixture for your overhead light can completely change a room. It’s like the cherry on top of ice cream. It might not be the first thing you notice, but it will add personality and bring everything together.
It’s also an affordable fix if you look at stores like Wayfair or Overstock, where you can often find cheaper pieces for less. It could be a buy that makes your dining area look like a whole new room.
Whatever you want to do this spring, we hope these small tips and affordable fixes allow you to make some big changes.
