You don't need to spend money to freshen up your space.
To figure out how, Insider asked three interior designers for their best tips on sprucing up a room without spending any money.
Here's how you can upgrade your home without buying anything new:
First off, decluttering your space can make a huge difference.
Javier Gonzales, an interior designer at Hometown Designs, said decluttering would change the look and feel of any room.
"Look at your dining room," he said.
"Is the dining table stocked high with mail and projects that you had planned to get to?
Well, there's no time like the present to clear and organize it."
Give the carpets in your home a deep, thorough clean.
Washing your carpets is another free way to spruce up your space, Courtney Turk, the owner of and interior designer at Courtney Turk Interiors, told Bay Area Entertainer.
"Get your hands dirty and scrub your rugs," Turk said.
"By giving your rugs a deep clean, it will refresh your home and also help to prolong the life of your carpet as well."
Rearrange some items you already have and turn them into decorative, or useful, accents.
Once you've decluttered, consider adding streamlined accents.
These types of carefully curated accents can accentuate a room while keeping the space clean and uncluttered, according to Christina Nielsen, an interior designer at Christina Nielsen Design.
Nielsen suggested placing a bowl of fruit or a stack of lemons on top of some cookbooks in your kitchen or adding a small plant or floral arrangement in your entryway.
These accents can be practical, too.
"If you have a console table in the foyer, make sure everything is easily accessible," she said. "Create a spot for your keys — I love leaving a little dish out for this."
Organize your bookshelves and try sorting them by color or separating them with pretty knickknacks.
If you have shelves that are filled with books, try displaying them in a more untraditional way, Turk suggested.
"Stack them on top of one another, and add in a few favorite pictures or vases you may have stored away to create some depth and character on the shelf," she told Insider.
You can also place books of similar colors together and try to create variations to display them, she suggested.
Go "shopping" in your home to find items you may not be using or could be displaying somewhere else.
Sometimes the best "shopping" is quite literally done in your own home, Fernandez said.
"Check the attic, storage room, and closets. You'll likely find something you put away a while ago," he told Insider.
"Now, with fresh eyes, you can see how it might work in one of your rooms."
For example, he said, a den or a living room can be easily transformed if you hang up different curtains or change the wattage on your light bulbs to create mood lighting.
Springtime means it’s time to watch baseball, plant flowers and enjoy the outdoors. For homeowners, it also means it’s time to start making a home maintenance checklist in preparation for the warm, wet months ahead. But before you start making checkmarks
