It’s officially spring, and with spring comes spring cleaning and home updating. It can be pricey to update your home every season, but there are some strategic ways to pack a big punch in your space with only a few small changes. If you’re in search of some simple home updates for spring, check out some of these ideas!
1. Change Out Your Drapes
If you have drapes framing your windows, they’re easy and inexpensive to switch out for an updated color or pattern to fit the new season. You may want to also change the material from a heavier winter drape to a lighter fabric that will allow a spring breeze and some sunshine through.
2. Replace Throw Pillows
Throw pillows can completely change the look of your couch. If you have dark or heavy-textured throw pillows, now is the time to get out your pastels and brightly colored pillows instead. You can also just switch out the throw pillow covers, which is likely a cheaper option and easier to store between seasons.
3. Use Slipcovers
If your couch or other upholstered seating doesn’t fit in aesthetically with the spring look you are going for, you can cover it with a slipcover in the color and material you choose. Slipcovers are handy because they are easy to wash and are an inexpensive way to change the look of your upholstery without buying an entirely new couch! Slipcovers can be tailored to fit your existing furniture perfectly so that it doesn’t bunch or hang with extra material.
4. Add a Rug
A rug defines a space and adds color and dimension. Rugs don’t have to be expensive, and they can be easy to maintain. No matter what color scheme and design style you like, there is a rug out there for you, and it can truly brighten your space!
5. Switch Your Bedding
Bedding during the colder months tends to be heavier, but you can put away that down blanket when the warmer weather hits and embrace the colors, textures, and lighter fabrics of quilts, duvets, and thinner blankets. Updated bedding in lighter and brighter colors and fabrics can truly update your bedroom and make it feel like spring!
