Jazz Up Your Home for Summer on a Budget

Regardless of what many popular home decorating websites lead you to believe, you don’t have to spend a fortune while sprucing your place up for the warmer weather. Check out these smart and thrifty home décor ideas.

  • Purchase fresh flowers during your weekly grocery trip and add a splash of color throughout your home. An inexpensive bouquet quickly and easily becomes a dining room table centerpiece, the living room coffee table focal point, brightens the fireplace mantel, or brings the outdoors inside to bedrooms and bathrooms.
  • Painting can become expensive. Limit your scope and simply paint your front door! Changing out that drab brown, grey, or forest green for an eye-catching buttercup yellow, Clemson orange, or periwinkle blue adds great curb appeal.
  • Replace those heavy window drapes with light and airy sheers. Not only will it brighten up a room but sheers are much more affordable than curtains or blinds.
  • Don’t have the budget for a complete bathroom remodel? All you need is a new shower curtain, bathroom rugs and accessories such as a trashcan, toothbrush holder and soap dispenser. In fact, many people change out their bathroom décor seasonally. For the warmer months go with a tropical theme, bright spring flowers, or a mix of white and crème with a splash of bold coral, lime green, or nautical navy.
  • Feeling crafty? Chalk paint some of those metal or wooden furniture pieces that are looking a bit dated and tired. This home decorating fad is still going strong thanks to very little sanding and priming required. Plus you can chalk paint just about anything from a wooden bookcase to a metal filing cabinet. Chalk paint can easily be applied to wood, metal, plastic, cement and even brick.
