7 Cheap Ways to Bring Spring Home

May 1, 2013 7:14 pm

The spring season seems to bring with it an urge to freshen our surroundings. But it may not take a full interior paint job or a roomful of new furniture to bring the essence of spring into your home.

Home and garden specialists suggest seven quick and inexpensive ways to brighten every room of your home:

  • Start with fresh fruit and flowers – Lift anyone’s mood by placing a clear glass vase on your dining room table, filled with lemons, tangerines, water and a moderate-sized bouquet of fresh spring flowers.

  • Set a spring-like table – Invest in a new set of everyday dishes in a bright, pleasing color or pattern. Add complementary placemats and napkins to complete the fresh, new look.

  • Give the kitchen new pop – Renew worn cabinets with a coat of off-white paint and a new set of eye-catching hardware. Replace the stand-by teapot on the stove with a new one in an eye-popping color.

  • Freshen the boudoir – Replace your heavy winter quilt or spread with a new, white duvet. Swap out the heavy drapes for sheers that let in the sunshine.

  • Accent one wall – You may not need to paint the whole room, but think about bringing new life to the living or dining room by painting one wall a bright, happy color as accent.

  • Change out accessories – You may be amazed at how much a few new lampshades, colorful pillows, and/or new picture frames can change the look of a room. Add a matching vase here and there, or new decorative pieces on the mantel or coffee table, to bring your living space into spring.

  • Put splash in the bath – A pretty pedestal sink, or a trendy bowl or vessel sink in a bold, new color, can bring your bathroom up to date. Make it spring-like by papering one wall in a pleasing print or switching out the towels and/or shower curtain to new ones with a bold, new look.
