Whether you’re looking to refresh your current living space or recently purchased an Irvine home for sale and are getting ready to move in, the following wallet-friendly tips will help you transform your space this spring.
Declutter and Organize
This should be the first step before you undertake any spring makeovers. Throwing away unwanted items is mentally freeing and allows you to more efficiently organize what you do have. As an added bonus, you can sell (or donate) your items, funding other spring projects for your home.
Decorate with Wall Stickers
Peel and stick products are both affordable and easy to install, making them great for a cheap and easy makeover. Adhesive tiles in various patterns are a pretty way to update an outdated bathroom, while real wood stickers can change the look of beds, mirrors, and walls with little effort.
Clean and Reseal Grout
Dirty grout is one of the most unattractive and overlooked aspects of the bathroom. Cleaning it, while labor-intensive, makes everything in your bathroom look newer. Resealing is essential to preserving the cleanliness of the grout and for keeping water from seeping into the porous surface.
Paint and Reupholster Outdoor Furniture
Spring means barbecue season is just around the corner. Take time to repaint or refinish outdoor furniture and spruce any worn or flat cushions by washing or reupholstering them.
Fresh spring plantings can bring brightness and joy to plain landscaping or simple decor. Green plants not only add a pop of color inside, but they also clean the air. You can also plant spring bulbs in front of your home that bloom quickly and require little care. Both are budget-friendly ways to breathe life into your space.
Refresh Your Bed
A new duvet cover or pillowcases can completely revamp your bedroom with minimal investment. Fresh, white linens make a room instantly feel like spring. A pop of color in an otherwise plain room has a similar effect. White linens are easier to clean than most people think, too. Just throw them in the wash with your other whites and add a little bleach.
