You can create a beautiful, fresh update to your home for spring without breaking the bank! Today I’m sharing my favourite spring decorating ideas on a budget.

Can you believe that it is already the middle of March? I certainly can’t. We’ve been working every day on our new build… painting, flooring, trim, painting and more painting. Things are getting VERY close. We will definitely be in by the end of the month and I’m most excited that we are nearly at the “good part”. Decorating!

This week is the Seasonal Simplicity Spring Home Tour Series which is a week long seasonal home tour that I host four times a year (spring, summer, fall, and Christmas).  Some of my blogging friends and I are sharing part of our homes decorated for spring or, in my case, my best tips for adding a spring feel to your home on a budget.  If you are new here, then welcome! You can read about me and this blog here.  And be sure to see all of the beautiful and inspiration posts being shared this week at the bottom of today’s post!

Spring Decor

Spring has traditionally been one of my favourite seasons to decorate for because after the long, grey, rainy west coast winter I’m always very excited to bring in some fresh spring colour. And while my spring decor bins may be hidden at the back of my extremely full storage unit still, I wanted to share some ideas and tips for adding spring to your home without breaking the bank.

I think that after an entire year of living with the pandemic and restrictions, we are likely all more than a little excited for spring weather and the hope of better days ahead in the coming months. I hope that you can find some inspiration to create a fresh, cheerful spring feel in your home without spending a lot of money.

Simple Spring Decor Ideas On A Budget.

Clean and Organize!

One of the best ways to see your home with fresh eyes this spring is to start with a good clean and reorganization.  The longer days this time of year bring us renewed energy and the sunshine streaming through the windows definitely highlights areas that need dusting and cleaning!

I like to start this time of year off with a good, deep clean in the kitchen, including the fridge and pantry. Nothing creates the same fresh update as a clean and organized home, and it’s a tip anyone can use no matter what kind of budget constraints you might be on.

Bring in ALL the flowers!

I love spring flowers. After a long, dreary grey winter I think adding spring florals, whether they are real or faux, is my favourite tip for adding a timeless custom feel to your home for spring.  Although real flowers can add up in cost fairly quickly they don’t have to! You can give your home a fresh update with just a  simple bouquet of tulips from the grocery store.

Sales & Coupons

I also like to use a variety of faux florals, and I generally buy them at Michaels when they are on sale BOGO or with my coupons.  I used to buy less expensive faux florals but wasn’t happy with how they looked, so I find it’s better to buy better quality ones but fewer of them and use those sales and coupons.

Invest in pieces you can use for several seasons

A few thoughtfully chosen decor pieces that can be reused in new and interesting ways over several spring seasons are worth the investment, as you can cycle them in and out of your decor each spring.

Pillows are one of those investments for me. I cycle my pillows in and out during the different seasons of the year, and because I don’t keep the same ones displayed all year round, they definitely create a visual splash of interest and colour that looks fresh each time I cycle them into my home decor.

Free Printables

A super budget friendly way to add a fresh update to your home for spring is using free spring printable art! I offer a ton of free spring and free Easter printables in my printable library – all of my email subscribers have access to my free printable library. Check out all of my free printable art for spring in this post.

Keep theme decor subtle 

I also like to move around my decor and accessories each season, while keeping certain key aspects the same. Adding a few Easter eggs here and there in your decor can be a subtle nod to the new season without going over-the-top Easter themed. Open shelves in the kitchen with a basket and wooden cutting boards on it.

I often DIY my Easter decor (such as the egg garland below), or source items from inexpensive sources like Dollarama and give it a new look with a little paint. I shared a post full of my DIY Easter banner ideas here.

Front Porch

One of the places I’m most excited to get to decorate in the new house is our front porch! The entry is only a touch larger than our old entry porch at the lake (see below), though we also have a side porch that I can’t wait to play around with. I love adding seasonal touches to our entry, and have missed doing that this year. I shared spring front porch decor ideas and my DIY spring planters…
