With spring’s arrival, you may be feeling leftover winter doldrums and be looking for ways to brighten up your home for the warm weather months ahead.
Perhaps a long winter has left you feeling that your home is tired and worn out, or perhaps spring’s brighter colors and warmer weather have inspired you to make a change.
If you are feeling this way, there are several budget friendly ways to brighten your home without busting your budget.
If you are feeling overwhelmed or you are afraid that redecorating may be too costly, read on for some budget friendly ways to spruce up your home for spring.
Decorating experts all agree that the biggest bang for your decorating buck is to be found inside a paint can.
Paint is an economical way to make a big change in your decorating.
You can use paint to completely redo the feel of a room with a dramatic color change. Or you can simply use a coordinating color to accent a room and freshen your décor.
If you are worried about selecting the right color, take a trip to your local home improvement store, where they no longer just stock paint on the shelves.
The paint department in these large stores comes complete with computers to let you see the change in your room to expert paint mixers, which can help you select that color you will love.
Another way to really make a difference in a room is to add fresh new throw pillows. Pillows now come in a variety of styles and colors and can be purchased for almost nothing.
Lots of stores now carry throw pillows, from large department stores to specialty home decorating stores.
Watch for sales, and you may be able to add a luxurious bunch of pillows on that couch, loveseat, or bench that only looks like they cost a fortune.
Nothing brightens up a room like something green and alive. Plants can really add pizzazz to a drab room without you having to spend a lot of money.
For that bright spring and summer feel, try filling your favorite rooms with plants.
For an extra special touch, choose flowering plants that will add color to your décor. Just be sure to choose plants that will do well indoors.
Consulting a grower or florist can help you make the right selections for plants that will continue to thrive and flourish inside your house.
Do not make the mistake of overlooking what you put your plants in.
Be creative in your pot selections so that they, too, will add to the overall feel that you want in your room. You don’t want them to take away from that feeling or be distracting.
There are many creative choices available to put plants into that are fun, creative, and economical.
Your home should be a reflection of who you are. Nothing says more about you than having photos of your nearest and dearest displayed in your home.
Whether you have children (either your own or someone close to you) that you want to have pictures of or your devoted pet, be sure that the photos in your home reflect who you are.
For a relaxed decorating touch, try framing candid photos and avoid those stiff-looking portraits.
Do not be afraid to hang black and white photos. Some of the best pictures are those when the subject is not posing.
Frames can be found at many different stores for only a small cost. Try mixing and matching your frames for that eclectic look.
Using photographs to decorate your home can give you a big impact without having to put out a lot of cash.
