Sticky traps - get the cardboard traps and put them along the baseboards of walls and in corners. Put them in shelves back against the wall where they will travel through.
If you want to save money, buy a can of sticky insect glue like for gardeners, and make your own cardboard sticky traps.
Vacuum everywhere in your house regularly, and keep down the population of bugs spiders feed on.
You can get the spider sticky traps in hardware stores or online.
Where I live, we have lots of different types of spiders, most not venomous. They especially like my basement.
Nothing I know of actually repels them, but the sticky traps collect them.
Hope that helps.
