With spring right around the corner, you might be thinking about trying to freshen up your home to reflect the changing season. Here are a few ideas for spring home decor to try:
1. Try a Spring Wreath
Spring brings life back into our lives with budding flowers. Why not mark the change of seasons with a spring wreath on your front door? It’s a popular front door decor idea because there are so many options available. Between home decor stores, craft stores, or online, you will have no problem finding one that fits your aesthetic. And if you’re crafty, you can even try making one!

2. Add a Splash of Coral
Coral is an excellent shade to use in spring home decor. This can be as simple as implementing a few decor pieces into your home. Try adding some throw pillows or throw blankets in the shade to see if you like it.
If you like the shade enough, you can always make coral a more permanent fixture in your home. Coral is a lovely accent color that you can either try on an accent wall or on your trim. Updating your molding or trim with a fresh coat of paint is one of the living room remodel ideas that pay off.
It can either be understated or make a statement that adds a little something extra to your home. If you’re planning on updating your living room anyway, it’s a good opportunity to really look it over. Are there areas that are frustrating?
Do you want to open it up to make the room bigger, upgrade windows for more natural light, or make other changes? Rethinking interior rooms is one of the popular home renovation trends and it can make a big difference in the comfort and enjoyment of your home.

3. Lighten Up Window Treatments
Dark and heavy draperies can create a wonderful and cozy vibe for the dark and cold months but with spring, try leaning into lighter window treatments. You don’t even need to change your color palette if you don’t want to. Simply change up your fabric material to something lighter.
Choose fabrics that are light and breezy and if you desire, choose lighter shades of color as well. Not only will lighter fabrics take some weight out of the room, but they may also catch the breeze if you leave the window open. Fluttering draperies add a level of breeziness to your room and make things feel airy and fresh.
Changing out heavy draperies for lighter fabrics is also useful for letting more light into a room. If you’ve been looking for a solution for how to brighten a dark room, consider switching out your heavy fabrics for fabrics that are more transparent and let in some light.
If changing fabrics isn’t enough, you can also explore options to add more natural light. Upgrading to bigger windows, adding new windows, and exploring skylights or sun tunnels are all ways to add more natural light to a room.

4. Decorate With Citrus
You don’t always have to decorate with florals to announce the arrival of spring. Citrus fruits feel fresh, just like spring. You can incorporate these into a wreath or on a mantle display as ideas for spring home decor. Decorate your kitchen with a bowl of citrus, making your decor edible!
You can also pick up some pillows or artwork that features citrus. These items will add a pop of color and make your room feel fresh and bright. And don’t worry about matching everything. Making sure everything matches is a common home decor mistake. Some contrast is good and necessary in home decor.
5. Layer Your Accessories
Spring weather can be unpredictable. One day it can be sunny and warm, the next, it can bring cold, gusty winds. Layer your accessories so you’re prepared for anything. You can store away your heavier blankets and throws, but be sure to keep a few lighter-weight blankets around for chilly mornings or evenings.
6. Add Plenty of Greenery and Flowers
To make your home feel fresh and spring-like, decorate with more greenery. Pick out some hearty house plants and place them around your home for pops of green. If you prefer more color, try some floral bouquets throughout your home. You can pick up fresh flowers at local markets or even pick from your backyard if you have a garden.
7. Try Floral or Garden-Patterned Wallpaper
For more permanent spring home decor, you can try some floral or garden-patterned wallpaper. If you wish to lighten up a darker room, make sure your floral wallpaper has a light background to it. If you need more time to decide whether to commit to a full room of wallpaper, try wallpapering just one wall. It’ll create a neat accent wall and won’t totally overwhelm the space.
These are just a few ideas for spring home decor to try in your home. Implementing some of these ideas can help freshen up your home for spring. However, if no amount of decorating is giving you the home you like, it may be time to think about some home renovations.
