10 Ways to Refresh Your Home On a Budget

2 min read

Tired of your home’s aesthetic or simply looking for a way to highlight new spaces? With our list of 10 budget-friendly upgrades, you can change up your home’s interior without breaking the bank.

1. Deep Clean

Nothing makes your home feel fresher than a good deep cleaning! Take this opportunity to clean all those spaces you might not get to on a regular basis: the tops of your fridge and cabinets, all the spaces and shelves in your entertainment center, your windows, window sills and frames, baseboards, under your bed, your ceiling fan blades, and any other places you can’t remember the last time you cleaned.

2. Declutter

You may start decluttering during deep cleaning, but it’s a task worthy of its own spot on our list. Take time to go through your closets (clothing, linen, and storage), kitchen cabinets, your children’s toys, and even your bookshelf to get rid of things that you don’t wear or use anymore. You can have a garage sale, set up a swap with friends, or donate to a local charity or thrift store. You’ll feel so much better when you let go of the things you don’t use.

As the weather warms up, you no longer need winter bedding like flannel sheets and heavy comforters and blankets. Swap them out for your lighter sheets, comforters/quilts, and blankets. You’ll sleep more comfortably with season-appropriate bedding in your home.

4. Replace Your Curtains

Changing your curtains is a way to instantly change the look and feel of a room. You can even try switching the curtains in your bedroom(s) and living room (if they match the decor). If you’re handy with a sewing machine, making your own curtains is a great way to get window treatments that are uniquely you.

5. Rearrange Your Furniture

Nothing gives a space a fresh feeling like rearranging the furniture! This is a 100% free way to make your home feel new again. You can even look into the principles of feng shui, the ancient Chinese practice of creating a harmonious living space.

6. Rearrange Your Wall Decor and Shelf Displays

Another free way to give your home a new look and feel! Rearrange the decor items on your shelves (and use this opportunity to dust, if you haven’t already!) and your walls. This is especially good for gallery walls. You might be surprised at how different decor items can look when they’re in a new spot!

Now that you’ve decluttered, what’s on your coffee table? Take a minute to put something decorative on your coffee table like books, fresh flowers or plants, or even some candles. Having a nice display at the center of your coffee table will help tie the entire room together and give you a nice focal point.

8. Brighten Up Your Baseboards

In addition to cleaning your baseboards, you can brighten them up with a magic eraser or a coat of paint. Scrubbing them with a magic eraser gets off hard-to-clean scuffs and grime, leaving them brighter. If you want to go the extra mile and have extra paint, you can brighten them all the way up. You’ll be surprised at the difference bright baseboards can make!

9. Create a Statement Wall

Statement walls have been a staple of interior design for a long time, and for good reason: it’s a simple way to pack a big design punch. Whether you paint your statement wall a solid color, paint a pattern, wallpaper it, or use removable wall decals, you’ll love having a clear focal point in your space.

How do you pick which wall will become your statement wall? Think about which wall your eyes automatically go to when you walk into the room. That’s your statement wall.

10. Revamp a Piece of Furniture

Sometimes, an interior refresh can be as easy as addressing your most prominent pieces of furniture. Your style may have changed, or the color isn’t quite what you want. Explore paint options, stains and even upholstery for a piece that looks brand new again!
