On a Budget? Here's How to Spruce up a Room

Now that it’s spring, you might feel like those dollars are burning a hole in your pocket. It’s sunny outside, after all, and since your wardrobe has just gotten slightly spruced up, you might as well spend the rest of your money on fixing up your space, right?

Luckily, you can get that spring feeling at home as well without having to spend too much money on it at all. As long as you’re willing and ready to pull up your sleeves and get a bit of work done over the weekend, you’re in a good position to give your home a completely new look.

Start with just one room and work your way throughout so that you’re able to stay organised. Here is a handful of ways to get started with your spring renovations on a budget, making it just a bit easier for you to enjoy the new seasons ahead.

First: Change out those curtains

If you already have a set of curtains you wouldn't part with for anything in the world, it’s best to let them hang right where they are. Otherwise, you should definitely go out there and get a pair of lighter and brighter curtains to give your room a different feeling.

Install them slightly higher than your window, though, to give the illusion of having a bit more window space than you actually have. It’s a basic trick, for sure, but it really does make a difference.

Another excellent and rather budget-friendly tip is to either get rid of the carpet you have, install a brand new one, or change out the carpet you currently have. Either way, you’ll be left with an entirely different feeling in the room. Have a look at this article on flooring installation costs, by the way, to make sure you’re not spending more than you planned on.

Next: Consider painting a statement wall

Painting the room is both budget-friendly and quite a lot of fun as long as you don’t have too many walls to paint. Luckily, you’re just doing this one room for now and can enjoy the fun while it lasts. Go for a color that you’re willing to put up with for some time, though, and not something that only speaks to the spring-lover inside of you.

Another idea is, of course, to paint just one wall in the room and leave the others plain white. That way, you can set the tone without having to spend too much time or money on it - and the difference will be immense. Consider painting the inside of the door instead, by the way, in case you want to be a bit different; an aquatic blue will definitely brighten things up a bit.

Decorate with plants

Spring is all about everything that blooms and there is really no better time than now to get started on collecting those houseplants. It will lift your room up a lot too, though, and cheer you up on the days that are not quite as sunny as long as you take care of them. Check out this article to learn more about unfussy houseplants that will stay around for longer.

All you need to do now is consider the furniture you have in the room, give everything a good wash, and open up those curtains to let the sunshine in.
