14 fun ways to update your space for spring
Here are 14 ways to decorate for spring in your home. They’re so simple that you can try a few of these ideas out today!
Start with a spring cleaning
Did you know 78% of Americans spring clean each year? It’s a spring tradition that everyone can do. Taking some time to go through your space and get rid of anything you no longer want or need can help create fresh new energy. Even clearing out one closet can feel like a fresh start.
Sprinkle in bright colors
Look around your house at accessories that you may have out. Consider switching out some darker elements for bright colors. Start with your living room decor: sprinkle bright colors with accent elements like pillows, candles, and wreaths. Simple changes like this can bring new life to a space you’re in all the time.
Flowers may not be blooming yet where you live, but you can still add floral elements to your home. Next time you’re at Trader Joe’s or the grocery store, buy some cheap flowers for yourself. When paired with a nice vase, these everyday flowers can shine. If you’re allergic, try some faux florals for a similar effect.
Throw in light fabrics
It’s time to switch out your flannel sheets for some lighter cotton ones. Switch out throw blankets in your living room as well. The feeling of more lightweight fabrics can bring a different feel to every room. You will also notice how the change helps you sleep as soon as temperatures drop.
It’s so easy to bring the outdoors in by using greenery. Clip a few branches from your yard and place them in a vase filled with water. These clippings last a week or two indoors. In the spring, you have the added benefit of having access to the greenery that is about to bloom. Pick branches with buds to have clippings with flowers inside your home. If your climate doesn’t support this, you can always supplement with fake plants as well.
Spice up your paint
If you want to swap out your paint, spring can be a great time to add in new colors. Bring a fresh new look to your space with this quick project. Painting can have a significant effect on your home. Be on the lookout for coupons to your local home improvement store.

Update your scents
This is simple! Change the scents around your home to embrace spring. Lavender, lemon, herbs, and floral aromas work for spring. Next time you buy candles or essential oils, consider a change.

Using baskets to reduce clutter will help you feel like your space is more open. Add just one to your spring living room decor to see the effect it can have on your room.
