Spring is a perfect excuse to change things up a bit. The snow is melting and the flowers start to bloom. This usually inspires us to do a bit of freshening up in our lives, as well as in our homes. 

Changing the look of your home can be that extra push you need to get going on all the positive changes you want. A change in colors, styles and layouts reinvent spaces and give rooms new vibes to help remind of your new motivations.

Giving your space a makeover doesn’t have to be expensive, either. A lot of things can be done on the cheap or even free. Here are five ways to give your home a makeover!

Clean

If you don’t want a massive redo for your home, or just really enjoy the look of your space, a simple clean and refresh can do wonders. If you want to do a massive home cleaning, it’s best to break the job up over a few days to make things easier. If you have wood floors, a quick clean and polish will work wonders.

Paint

Adding a coat of paint to something is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to change a home’s look. And we’re not just talking about the walls: painting furniture, cabinet surfaces or picture frames can benefit from a touch of paint.

Cover

If you want new furniture but don’t want to break the bank, consider getting furniture covers or getting chairs and sofas reupholstered. There are many places to get affordable furniture covers, or if you’re not afraid of a little DIY, you can do the job yourself.

Change

Fixture updates can be a nice, subtle way to give your room a new look. Add or change handles to your drawers and cabinets, change faucet fixtures or even change the switch plates on your walls. Adding or changing the look of pillows is also a cheap and easy accent.

Rearrange

This update is totally free! Rearranging furniture transforms a room and protects floors from getting worn out in the same spot. But it’s not just furniture: rearranging any hanging pictures or wall art is another way to make a statement without spending a penny.
