12 Fresh Spring Decor Ideas To Freshen Up Your Home
Add Indoor Plants or Fresh Spring Flowers
Nothing says spring like fresh-cut spring flowers and new plants. Pick up a bouquet of seasonal flowers from your local farmer's market or swing by your favorite plant store for another succulent for your growing collection.
Not only do fresh flowers and live plants bring a touch of the outdoors in, give your door space pops of color, but they also help to boost your mood. Behavioral researchers have found that the presence of flowers heightens feelings of well-being and life satisfaction.
Some great places to add a touch of fresh-cut flowers include your home entryway, dining room, or kitchen counter. Spring flowers and plants are a great way to create a beautiful tablescape and create a spring vibe to your home.
Ditch Heavy Fabrics
Now that temperatures are heating up, it's time to say goodbye to thick winter fabrics like faux fur pillows, fleece sheets, and cable knit throw blankets. Swapping them for earth-toned cotton or linen fabrics instantly brings a light, airy feel to your space.
Change Your Home Scents
Changing the way your living space looks isn't the only way to refresh your home for spring. Changing the way your home smells can be just as impactful. Instead of throwing away your wintery-smelling candles, soaps, and lotions, simply tuck them away for the season. Bring out botanical scents like citrus, mint, lemongrass, rose, and eucalyptus as invigorating replacements.
Tackle a New Organization Project
Nothing beats a good spring cleaning session on a rainy spring weekend. So it's time to stop putting off that organization project you've been avoiding all winter and do it!
Tackle a weekend-long project like reorganizing the garage or a quick clean-up like rearranging your craft closet. Not only will you feel accomplished at the end, but you'll probably feel inspired to continue your organizational efforts to other projects you've back burner.
Repaint Your Front Door
If you're looking for an inexpensive home project with maximum impact, repainting your front door is a great place to start. It only requires a can of paint and a bit of elbow grease but could significantly increase your home's value when it comes time to sell. And to give your front door an even more spring lift, add DIY spring wreaths or accessories.
According to Zillow, for-sale listings with black or charcoal grey doors can sell for up to $6000 more than expected. "For a seller, painting a front door is one the least expensive home prep projects, but also one that can have a powerful impact on a home's sale price," says Zillow's home design expert. "Contrasting colors, especially in kitchens and home exteriors, add interest and dimension to a room that plays very well in listing photos and videos."
Swap Out Your Welcome Mat
Looking to update your front porch without the commitment of picking a new paint color? Try swapping out your welcome mat instead. A fun novelty doormat brings a touch of spring cheer that's sure to put a smile on your guests' faces.
Reorganize Your Closets
Once the weather is nice enough to leave your winter coat behind, it's time to reorganize your closets. Start by clearing everything out so you can sweep the floor, dust any shelves, and find all the things that have gone missing in the depths of your closet. Next, put heavy winter items away in storage totes or rearrange your closets so they're towards the back.
Once you've tackled your bedroom closets, take on your mudroom or entryway closet to make room for summer sports equipment, hiking gear, and yard games.
Prepare Your Patio for Summer Season
If you didn't upgrade your backyard during last spring's lockdowns, now's the time to do it! It's looking like the coming months will be filled with the same outdoor gatherings and socially distanced backyard BBQs we made the most of last summer.
Prepping your patio ahead of time ensures it's ready to go for dinner with friends and family on the first few warm nights of the year. Deep clean your deck, put out your patio furniture, and update your outdoor throw pillows. Don't forget to add a festive strand of deck lights!
Clean Your Rugs, Throw Pillows, Curtains, and Other Soft Furnishings
You'd be amazed (and equally disgusted) to know just how much dirt has accumulated on your rugs, throw pillows, curtains, and other soft furnishings over the winter. On a nice sunny day, clean what you can at home, allowing them to dry on your deck or clothesline. Take larger items to be professionally cleaned at least once per year.
Add Window Boxes or Potted Plants
Window boxes are an inexpensive way to add a splash of color to the exterior of your home. Whether you're looking to makeover your front porch, add a touch of color in your bedroom or kitchen, or simply flex your green thumb, showcasing your favorite plants in sleek wood or metal window boxes will make your home the envy of everyone in the neighborhood.
Update Your Bath Linens
Changing the color of your bath linens can bring an entirely new feel to your bathroom space. Opt for a light earthy tone like tan, moss, or pale grey that brings balance. Or add a floral-inspired pop of color like pink, lavender, light blue, or orange that livens up space.
Rearrange Your Home Office
Does your work-from-home-space feel cramped or cluttered? Whether it's a spare room turned office or just a corner of the kitchen counter, give it the much-needed makeover it deserves. For a guaranteed productivity boost, swap to a standing desk or ergonomic office chair. And if you want a change, add some accent furniture to give your home office a new feel.
