Spring has always been considered a time of rebirth – and knowledge of this fact often makes people eager to make changes to their surroundings. Maybe it’s the drab tree limbs getting fresh green leaves, the bursting blossoms or the gray skies which start to turn blue – it’s effect is undeniable. After being stuck in the same environment for a long winter, we all get bored and feel like making some changes. But what can you do to make your home better without spending too much cash? Worry not – there is a wide variety of things you can do to transform your home without breaking the bank. You’ll be surprised to find out how much zing you can add back into your place once you learned about these simple changes.
While it can be a good idea to go and check out stores looking for new inexpensive home accessories, you should first rearrange what you’ve already have. Be creative! Most people have similar color schemes throughout their homes, so they can perhaps move a vase from their bedroom to their living room, or get the paintings from the living room and distribute them across other areas. You can also get some small accessories and match them with whatever you’ve got in a different, interesting way.
It can be quite fun to rotate colors and accessories seasonally. Once spring and summer come, swap out some cranberry reds for a more vibrant, fun, festive one. It’s definitely going to go well with the warmer months. Get some long-stemmed tulips and bright forsythia limbs instead of the stark berry limbs you might showcase during the winter. Suddenly, your home could start to feel a lot more refreshing, even if you don’t make that much of a significant change. If you decorate your home in a more neutral way, using only accent colors, you can make a few simple changes such as trading in the couch’s pillows, some candles, vases and other small accessories and completely change the color scheme – Neutral can be loads of fun too!
If you’re willing to make a larger impact – and spend a little more time and energy – perhaps you could rearrange the furniture in the entire home. You could position the bed on the other side of your bedroom, for instance, placing it opposite to the door and making the room’s focal pointmore prominent – or get a table from another room to use it as a bedside table or nightstand. You can even get a piece of furniture in a room which has been placed flush against a wall and place it angled coming out from one of the corners, giving the space an entirely new look. Angling desks and bets in the corner can surely add a cool new spin.
Perhaps your laundry room or kitchen cabinets need refinishing or just look a bit outdated. Instead of taking on this chore on your own or breaking the bank in order to hire someone to renew it, you could simply change the cabinets’ fronts in order to give it a quick, inexpensive style makeover. This can be a lot more easy than it appears, especially if you get something from the same manufacturer. Another cool option to transform a kitchen and spend very little is to swap out old handles for newer ones, which will make the entire room seem a lot fresher.
