For some homeowners, the change of the seasons also means making changes to their homes. It’s only natural to want to mix things up now that the weather is warm, the breeze is cool, and the sun is shining brightly. If you’re worried about spending more than you should on sprucing things up around the house, you’ll be pleased to know that there are a lot of things you can do and buy that are affordable. Here’s a look at a few ideas for a budget-friendly spring home makeover.
Change Your Linens
It’s time to get rid of the drapes and heavy comforters that were used during the winter and replace them with something more soothing, airy, and bright. You can affordably purchase sheers and blinds for your windows and throw blankets for your bedrooms to liven things up a bit. You could even switch up the towels and washcloths in your bathroom.
Paint a Few Things
A fresh coat of paint can turn things around without you having to break the bank. If you’re short on cash you could always use monthly installment loans so you’ll have cash upfront to buy paint and supplies then pay it back later. Choose a few spring-like colors. You could paint the walls in a room, the shutters outside your windows, your patio furniture, or even repurpose some furniture in your home with paint.
Get Rid of the Clutter
You’d be surprised how much the look and feel of a room can change when there’s not a bunch of junk in it. Spring is the perfect time to get rid of things you no longer have a use for. Box things you find up in each room and either put them in storage until winter, donate them, or have a yard sale (which would bring in extra cash for your home makeover). If you have a lot of stuff that isn’t in any condition to store, donate, or sell, you could always rent a dumpster and just have everything discarded. Then, reevaluate the free space and reposition things so that the room looks better utilized and less cramped.
Sprinkle in New Decor
You can complete your home makeover for the spring by using the last of your budget to sprinkle in some new decorative pieces. You could buy new picture frames for family photos or artwork. You could purchase new throw pillows for your couch or chairs. You might want to buy new vases to place on tables. If you’re really creative, you can even create your own flower centerpieces from synthetic flowers and other craft materials. Every little addition helps to bring the space together even more.
The warm weather on the horizon is the perfect time to begin making changes to your home. Giving your house a spring makeover doesn’t have to be long and drawn out, nor does it have to be costly. All it takes is a few small changes here and there to make the place feel brand new.
