The signs of spring will be showing soon and with it comes a renewed sense of vitality. We spruce up our homes with spring cleaning and start fresh with light and airy decorations as we put away the winter decor. Here are 4 affordable and easy spring decorating ideas to spruce up your spaces for springtime.
In the spring, a thorough cleaning and purging should be done initially (spring cleaning). Out with the old and in with the new! Get rid of the clutter, winter clothing, and numerous dust bunnies that have accumulated over the past few months, and open the windows to let in some fresh air. This will give you a blank space to work with when trying to create a crisper environment for the new season.
Nothing says spring like plants. Spring is a great time to give your houseplants some TLC and welcome a few new additions to your home. Bringing the outside in can reduce stress levels and boost your mood. Houseplants are good for your health as they release oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide, which can purify the air and eliminate harmful toxins. Having fresh flowers in the house will make your home feel lighter and arouse your senses. Canâ€™t handle live plants? Go faux! All youâ€™re trying to do is create a mood in your home of freshness which can be achieved with fake plants as well as live ones.
Switching out a few winter accessories for a few spring decor items can make a big difference in your spaces without breaking the bank. Pack up the chunky knit and faux fur blankets and pillows from your winter decor and break out the lighter fabrics and prints. This will immediately make the room feel fresh. Mix soft colors in with your neutrals to freshen up your palette for the season. This could be as simple as taking the darker moodier pieces you used to cozy up the cold months with lighter muted tones for the warmer months. Your spring mood can be set with soft blues, pinks, yellows, and greens without being too Easter-y.
In the winter, we want all the soft, cozy, heavy textiles. But when things start to warm up, linens, weaves, and woven cottons add a soft, subtle texture for spring. Itâ€™s easy to switch out your heavy down duvet or winter-weight quilts for something more appropriate for spring. Aside from revitalizing your bedding, you can also swap out darker towels as an inexpensive way to bring in a fresh look and they offer a nice impact with minimal effort.
These simple spring decorating ideas will leave you feeling rejuvenated, whether you like to go all out or just add a few small touches here and there.
