21 on-trend home decor items to freshen up your nest—without breaking the bank

When your home is bombarded with clutter or has maintained exactly the same look for the past decade, there's a good possibility that it's time to consider mixing things up. No, we aren't talking about costly home renovations or purchasing all new furniture. However, keeping the essentials and purchasing some visually appealing items is essential. Rotating decor, which interior decorators recommend doing every three years to avoid boredom, is another way to improve how you feel about the appearance of your home.

There are plenty of relatively inexpensive options you can rotate every few years or at your leisure: throw pillows, indoor plants, wall art, bedding, storage baskets, duvet covers, and more. Then there are staples that can remain year round—pieces that are meaningful to you or simply spruce up your home without the need to relocate or frequently replace them.

When you switch up the look of your home without breaking the bank, studies show that you will feel more content and get an overall boost in mood. We have selected 20 options to get you started. And don't worry, you can thank us later.

Then whenever you feel like going skating with your little one, slip them on, go for a ride, and put them back in your place of choice.

No, this isn't a small item that you can rotate throughout the year; however, you can spruce up your closet by changing the way you organize things and also, what you decide to place on your shelves and hangers. Based on your closet measurements, you can choose from a variety of pre-designed closets or even better, you can design your own. Their team keeps your preferences—drawers, hanging bars, and shelving—into account, and then they present you with a few options for your closet (don't worry, installation is much more simple than you'd imagine).

Kohler Moxie Showerhead + Wireless Speaker

Sure, you don't need to switch out your current shower head on a regular basis like you enjoy doing with farm-fresh flowers. But what about splurging on a brand new one that's equipped with Bluetooth or Alexa enabled technology, a removable wireless speaker that you can take with you on the go, and a magnetic charging dock? We don't think shower time gets much better than that.

You even have the ability to use voice activation so you can make phone calls or perhaps listen to your favorite tunes; whatever you choose, you're sure to have a blast. Bonus points: The shower head itself is visually appealing and has phenomenal water pressure.

We independently select and share the products we love—and may receive a commission if you choose to buy. You've got this.
