8 Ways To Spruce Up Your Home For Spring

spring decor

It’s that time of year again! With spring in full spring, it’s time to spruce up your spaces at home for warmer weather and longer days ahead. No matter the size or style of your home—be it a large family house or a compact city apartment—here’s our checklist of easy (and essential!) spring decor updates and home refresh ideas to welcome the new season.

spring decor1. Do a deep spring clean

Your home deserves a deep clean, especially after the winter hibernation months. Trust us when we say you’ll feel 100% refreshed and accomplished if you tackle this list.

Wipe down baseboards

Wash all pillow covers (in the living room and bedroom)

Vacuum and rotating out rugs (roll-up winter ones to stow them away)

Dust off table surfaces and bookshelves

Clear things out of storage cabinets, your pantry, and the fridge (no excuses!)

spring decor2. Retire winter clutter

It doesn’t matter the size of your home, utilize all the spare space you can find to organize and put away winter accessories.

Stash away winter clothing you won’t need until later in the year.

Wash comforters, heavy blankets, and throws, and store them in airtight bins.

Put any big bulky storage, like space heaters and humidifiers, in the garage or in storage.

Make the most of under-bed storage organizers.

Corral things into woven baskets that can easily be stacked or tucked into corners.

spring decor3. Opt for lighter textures

Think natural textures and airier materials here that nod to the outdoors and soon-to-arrive summer days.

Seagrass, jute, linen, rattan, cane… these textures feel at home in warmer weather, so layer rugs made of these materials into your spaces with abandon!

Work in basketweave textures also to further play up the appeal of natural textures.

Try also adding in light woods and driftwood pieces to play up a summery beach house vibe, sure to bring in a hint of laid-back style.

spring decor4. Swap in new throw pillows

This is the easiest way to change up your look with more color and a fresh appeal that ushers a spring vibe into your rooms.

Replace cozy winter pillow covers with lighter, breezier ones made of linen and cotton.

Instead of faux fur pillows and knitted ones, try more solid colors and geometrics, which will add lots of instant spring energy.

Work in seasonal colors, such as greens, blues, pinks, and purples, which are sure to usher in major spring vibes.

spring decor5. Bring in breezier textiles

After you’ve changed up your pillow selection, do the same with your other textiles, which will further brighten and open up your rooms.

Swap in linen and cotton blankets and pack away chunky knits or fur throws.

Hang lighter curtains, like breezy linen and sheers, in lieu of heavy velvets.

Switch up your rugs in rooms from high-pile options to natural-fibers or flatweaves, which will bring a burst of color and texture as well as feel more in line with the warmer weather.

spring decor6. Play with color and patterns

Be sure to keep an eye out for fun and whimsical patterns that pay homage to spring. These are small updates that are sure to enliven your spaces.

Think stripes vibrant colors, pretty florals, chevron zigzags, and even elaborate animal motifs, all of which will add punch and intrigue.

If spring colors aren’t your thing, add energy and bring a room to life with a classic palette of crisp whites, black tones, and sharp blues.

spring decor7. Invite greenery indoors

It’s not a spring home refresh until you add some greenery and blooms in your home, naturally.

If you’re not a plant person, something simple can do the trick. Just add a potted succulent or two.

Or simply arrange a bouquet of spring blooms in a glass vase or unique vessel.

Don’t have a green thumb at all? Put a few stems of flowers in bud vases and arrange them however you want on a table or bookshelf.

spring decor8. Introduce fresh scents

Whether it’s fragrant blooms or a pristine scent of clean linens and plants, giving your rooms a scent update will set a bright mood and tone in your spaces.

Try out a new scented candle in the entry, your kitchen, or bathroom. We love placing one in a high-traffic area to bring in an uplifting mood.

For a stronger scent accessory update, you can go with something floral or a diffuser with essential oils that you can adjust to your liking.

spring decor ideas1. Change Up Your Pillows

The Swap

One of our favorite spring decor ideas is to swap your throw pillows. This is an easy and affordable way to add a pop of color and a bit more style to your space. You can save a bit more by buying new throw covers and reusing your existing inserts.

The Cost

Depending on fabric, you can easily score 2-3 new pillows for under $100 or 3-4 pillow covers, if you already have the inserts!

Spring decor ideas2. Restyle Your Bookshelf

The Swap

Knock out two Eames birds with one decor move. Take a moment to get rid of clutter and reorganize your surfaces. This is especially important for open shelving, which can start to feel a little stale (not to mention dusty) after sporting the same old tchotchkes for too long.

Try swapping in small pieces of art or decorative objects and sculptures. Pick up new pieces while you stroll the flea market or in your favorite little boutiques. Not sure where to begin? Sign up for a Modsy design package and our stylists can suggest decor and accessories that match your style and budget.

The Cost

$0-$50, depending on where and how many pieces you buy.

spring decor ideas3. Add Plants Galore

The Swap

One of our favorite spring decor ideas is to add life to your space by, literally, adding life! We love decorating with plants because they never go out of style and they clean your air while they’re at it.

The Cost

Small cacti and succulents usually run less than $5 a pop at hardware stores. Plant them in budget-friendly mini planters or even a few hanging options. If you’re looking for a larger statement, add a tall indoor plant to the mix.

4. Try on a New Paint Color

The Swap

Sometimes the best way to make your space feel new is a fresh coat of paint! If you’re up for a DIY moment, pick up a gallon of paint and create some drama via wall color. Paint just one accent wall, or go for all four if you’re looking to take this spring decor idea to the next level.

The Cost

Depending on the brand you choose and if your walls need primer, painting an accent wall yourself can cost as little as $25 and up to $75.

spring decor ideas5. Rearrange Your Layout

The Swap

If you’re saving your pennies for a summer vacation you can still make your living room feel new again by rearranging your furniture. A new layout creates a new flow in the space, which will change the way you think about that room!

The Cost

Free! Or sign up for Modsy (starting at $69) to try on new layouts virtually before you rearrange them IRL.
