7 Budget-Friendly Spring Projects For Your Home
5-Minute ReadUPDATED: June 09, 2022
When you think of tackling a new "home project," you may first think of that full-blown kitchen remodel you’ve always wanted or about adding hardwood throughout the house.
However, you can still make a huge impact on your home without forking over a huge amount of cash. All you need is a fun spring project to keep you and your family busy!
1. Put In The Outside Work
It’s amazing what a weekend of outdoor work can do to improve your home’s curb appeal, especially as the spring sunshine and green grass begin to emerge. Yardwork and even small outdoor improvements can be very affordable, too, giving you a budget-friendly way to spruce up your home’s appearance all the way from the street.
Assemble your toolbox. You’ll be shocked at the difference all of this can make, and you can easily spend less than $100 at your local hardware store.
2. Swap Out Hardware
There are many ways to make a big impact indoors but, unfortunately, many of them are pricey enough to consider a home improvement personal loan. If you’re looking for something much more budget-friendly (and with a lot less dust), consider a simple hardware swap.
3. Create A Kitchen Herb Garden
Spring and blooming gardens go hand in hand, so why not bring some of that greenery indoors?
With a homemade herb garden, you’ll have access to fresh, fragrant herbs all year round. This not only serves to spruce up your living space but can also save you money.
There are so many great ways to incorporate an herb garden into your home, too! You can create a windowsill greenhouse above your sink or create a hanging garden space in the dining room. If you have a patio, a tiered garden with colorful pots and planter stands might bring you joy every day when you come home.
Browse Pinterest and DIY forums for design ideas and buy affordable supplies at places like Ikea or garage sales. Then, plant some seeds and get to growing!
4. Hang A Front Door Wreath
Your front door is one of the first things that visitors will see and can set the tone of your entire home. Adding a beautiful wreath is a simple and inexpensive way to spruce up your home’s entrance and celebrate spring at the same time.
5. Plan For The Weather Ahead
Yes, spring has only just arrived, but you’d be wise to remember that much hotter weather is just around the corner (as is allergy season). By keeping this in mind and making tiny home improvements today, you can not only make the coming months more tolerable but also save yourself money along the way.
And remember, checking your home’s airflow and insulation quality should make the list when it comes to winter home improvement ideas, too!
6. Swap And Integrate Colors
Celebrate this fun season by swapping out various textiles for bright colors and happy patterns.
7. Use Some Paint
If you’re ready for a bit more commitment, go grab some paint swatches and drop cloths and get to work!
Painting cabinets can transform your entire kitchen without the need for a pricey remodel, and creating an accent wall in your dining room might be all you need to find new inspiration. Swapping out the color on your front door can change the entire look of your home, while adding some color to your garden planters is an inexpensive way to brighten the space.
Even after a fairly mild winter, spring can’t come soon enough. After all, this season of renewal brings sunshine, flowers, and fresh starts with it after months of gray drab.
With just a few affordable changes and special touches, you can completely transform your home from the inside and out.
