“First and foremost, give your entire space a deep cleaning,” says Bailey Archer, decorating and DIY expert. “For best results, always move from top to bottom. Start with ceiling fans and windows, followed by surfaces, linens, baseboards, and floors."

Our spring cleaning tips will help you refresh and organize your home. Starting with a clean slate feels good and sets the tone for success, making every space feel fresh and new.

Spring is the season for new beginnings and growth. You can bring the beauty of the season into your living space by adding plants or flowers. Place them in unexpected places, like your bathroom or laundry room, to add an interesting touch to the area.

Rosie of Literally Rose emphasizes that "by being rooted in nature, it allows one’s soul to heal from the cold elements of the winter months." Foliage is affordable, rejuvenating, and eco-friendly. Jen Nash of Magnet reminds us of the "joy to be found in the mindful act of bringing greenery into your home and helping support your local businesses in the process."

3. Paint an Accent Wall

Paint can work wonders in refreshing your space, making it a perfect addition to your spring home decor ideas. “Spring is a time for fresh starts, so why not try some fresh colors in your home?" suggests Artem Kropovinsky of Arsight. "If you’re feeling bold, try painting a wall a bright color like yellow or green." Adding a bright color to one wall can quickly change the appearance and atmosphere of a room.

4. Hang Spring-Inspired Artwork

Rugs are an amazing spring living room decor idea to “give the space a completely new vibe, elevate the interior, or add a splash of color to a dull room,” shares Mariya Snisar of Renowell. You can add spring colors, patterns, and textures to change the look without altering the layout.

7. Use a Neutral Base

Transitioning your home from winter to spring shouldn't be a drastic change. Sherri Middleton says she loves “to start with a neutral base. From there, you can add as much or as little color as desired.” Begin with a neutral background, then add pops of color for a beautiful, soft spring color palette.

8. Spruce Up with Spring Colors

Interior designer Alex Fontaine suggests adding "florals and pops of color through artwork, throw pillows, and greenery" to give your home a fresh spring look. Soft pastels like baby blue, mint green and blush pink are trending for spring colors. You could also take the bold approach by using vibrant hues like coral, turquoise, and fuchsia.

Get creative and experiment with the hues that speak to your personality. Lindsey Albracht from RD Home says that "earthy, muted tones" are making a comeback this season. These colors remind us of the outdoors. Think of warm browns, cool greens, and soft neutrals.
