Refreshing your home’s design every few years is a good idea. Trends fade, or you become bored with the same style. Understandably, you don’t want to spend too much money redecorating and freshening your house decor. We have just the thing. These are easy and inexpensive ways to refresh your space.
Add More Greenery
If you want more vibrancy and life in your home, greenery is a fantastic tool. Plants help with air quality and can give your house a refreshing vibe. If you want, you can use flowers and plants that you enjoy seeing during your walks around the neighborhood—whatever brings you happiness and inspiration. Install floating shelves as a bonus to place your new green friends on.
You don’t have to purchase real floral arrangements. Feel free to go fake if you’re afraid of killing your plants. Or, you can do a mixture of real and fake. The rules are yours to make!
Remove Decor That You No Longer Love
Sometimes, taking away is more effective than adding. If you don’t love the decor you have, adding to it won’t solve the problem. If there are any items you’re not vibing with, take them down and donate or sell them.
After removing the pieces, you can step back and see what you’re working with. Maybe now you have space to hang up those family photos in storage. A well-edited space can feel like a breath of fresh air for most individuals.
Don’t Forget Your Bedding
Your bed is the centerpiece of your bedroom. It’s most likely the largest piece of furniture in the room. Why not give it the refresh it deserves? Look for sheets and blankets that you love and purchase them. Then, you can sell, toss, or donate your old quilt, duvet, or comforter.
Bedding is a great way to add more color to the space. Look for fun and vibrant designs to freshen up your bedroom.
Change Out Your Curtains
Curtains are the most neglected decor items in your home, most likely. You hang them and forget about them. Perhaps you don’t have curtains, allowing the blinds to reign supreme. But now, it’s time to hang up or change out the curtains.
If you live in a rental and are nervous about damaging the walls, don’t worry—there are renter-friendly ways to hang up curtains. Curtains add texture and color to a space, not to mention privacy. They can also make a room larger if you hang them correctly.
These are just a few ideas for how to refresh your space. You can try one or all since they’re inexpensive and won’t break the bank.
