Spring is official and I finally have tulips ready to bloom. Trust me, that’s pretty exciting for the first few weeks of April in Michigan! It may be a week or two more before we really see all the pretty signs of spring. However, what better time than now to share the best & budget-friendly home decor for spring with you!
For me, spring is a great time to freshen up your home decor. Freshening up your home doesn’t mean you need to break your bank account. By incorporating a few plants, some new items and refreshing with what you already have, you can create a welcoming and cheerful home for the season.
If you love color like I do, spring is the perfect time for you! It’s all about light and bright colors. Why not swap out your dark, heavy curtains, rugs or bedding for ones in lighter hues. You can also add a fresh coat of paint to your walls or furniture in pastel shades like soft green, blue or pink.

Budget-Friendly Spring Home Decor Ideas
Here are some budget-friendly spring home decor ideas to get you home ready.
- Add some faux or real plants and flowers. (This is my new favorite to decorate with!)
- Layer your rooms with lighter linens and fabrics.
- Add some natural textures
- Change out your throw pillows or covers.
- Create a small gallery wall with some botantical or landscape prints.
Faux or Real Plants
Add some greenery to your world! Bring some life into your home by adding plants or flowers. You can pick up inexpensive potted plants or cut flowers at your local grocery store or nursery, or even try your hand at propagating some cuttings from your existing plants.
I’ve recently added real plants into my cottage and I love how they look. Faux plants are always a staple in my home too. If you don’t have access to real spring branches, don’t worry! I’m sharing some of the best ones right here!
Below are some of my favorite faux plants!
- Faux Forsythia Branches – 6 Branches
- Artificial Snake Plant – 35 Inch
- Faux Eucalyptus Stems – 3 Branches
- Silk Cherry Blossom – 3 Branches
Lighter Linens and Fabrics
Refreshing my bedding is an easy way I welcome in each new season. I have a collection of quilts I like to rotate through. If you’re anything like me, in the winter I keep fannel sheets on the bed. Swap out your heavy winter bedding for lighter, brighter options. Look for colorful duvet covers, sheets and pillowcases that will brighten up your bedroom for spring.
This pottery barn Penelope quilt is my current favorite for spring! I love the addition of the blue and white throw pillows.
Mellanni Bedspread Coverlet Set – Olive
I love to layer my bedding even in the spring and summer months. I just prefer the way it looks and you can always turn the bedding back when you sleep, so your not so warm. Choosing to use a solid spring color, gives you the option to add another patterned quilt or some throw pillows to jazz it up.
Add Natural Textures
Spring is also a great time to add some natural textures to your decor, like wicker, rattan or bamboo. Look for affordable baskets, trays or placemats in these materials to use throughout your home. Keeping with the budget-friendly theme, check your local thrift store for these items.
Hand Woven Large Storage Baskets – Wooden Handles
Decorative Throw Pillows & Covers
I have a confession.
I need a closet just for all my decorative throw pillows and covers. Yes, I have that many. Every room in my house is adorned with throw pillows. I’ve found buying the insert and changing out the cover is the best bang for your buck. Pillow covers tend to be more affordable.
Below are a few of my new favorites for spring.
Remember that art is a personal choice and should reflect your own taste and style.
Why not swap out heavy or dark-colored artwork for lighter, brighter pieces that reflect the colors and mood of spring. There are so many great options now that features pastels, florals, or nature scenes.
I recently created a small gallery wall in my home. I used some nature scenes and botanicals and I couldn’t be happier with it. Make sure you check out my post Beautiful Vintage Artwork & Easy Gallery Walls.
The Best & Budget-Friendly Home Decor for Spring
One item I didn’t share in this post was options for beautiful spring wreaths. I recently researched those for you and you can read all about them in my post The Best Budget Friendly Wreaths for Spring.
Remember, the key to budget-friendly spring home decor is to keep it simple, natural, and fresh. By incorporating a few new items and refreshing what you already have, you can create a welcoming and cheerful home for the season.
Happy spring decorating!
