After a long winter, spring is just around the corner, so it’s time to give your bedroom a refreshing makeover. Whether you’re short on time, money, or both, there are plenty of quick, affordable ways to refresh your bedroom for spring on a budget.

From simple DIY projects to small updates with big impact, get creative and give your bedroom a breath of fresh air just in time for the spring season.


Swap flannel for cotton or linen

Flannel and a heavy blanket are cozy and toasty for the cold winter, but they’re heavy and steamy in the spring. Swap out your flannel sheets for lighter cotton or linen that will keep you cool as the nights warm up. Add a light second blanket for those nights that are still a little crisp.


Give your room color with cushions or throws

Light blues, greens, yellows, and pinks can give your space a spring-like natural feel. To avoid spending a lot of money on adding these brighter colors, just swap a couple of new cushions or throws. Look for pillows in standard sizes with removable covers so you can change colors seasonally without buying new forms every time.


Tweak your layout with decor from other rooms

Do you have a pretty wreath in your living room that reminds you of spring? Perhaps the end table by your couch would make an ideal bedside table?

Consider decor from other rooms in the house that might give your bedroom a new feel without a costly purchase. A few simple swaps from one room to another can refresh your whole house instead of just your bedroom.


Spring clean with a quick declutter

Spring is a time of new beginnings and returning to the spaciousness of nature. You may find that creating spaciousness in your bedroom makes it feel refreshed and new. Go through your wardrobe, clear your nightstand, and consider removing any furniture or decor that doesn’t get used.

Whether you get rid of things or store them for future use, decluttering your bedroom can add space, light, and calm.


Do a deep clean to freshen the whole room

Your house has been closed up for the cold winter months, which can lead to a buildup of dust and grime no matter how frequently you clean.

Take a day to do a deep cleaning of your bedroom. Instead of vacuuming, use a shampooer on the carpet or a steam cleaner if you have hard floors. Flip or rotate your mattress and move your bed to clean the floor and baseboards hidden beneath it. Open windows and allow the fresh air to circulate through your room.


Bring in fresh flowers or plants

Spring is a time of planting and growth in nature, so why not encourage that in your bedroom? Some greenery or natural color can breathe new life into your space.

You might choose to bring in a bouquet of fresh-cut flowers that you change out regularly. You could also select a couple of flowers or plants in beautiful pots and place them in front of the window. Bonus: Some plants eliminate pollution in the air!


Consider adding an air purifier

Spring is beautiful and fresh, but can also bring pesky allergies. Consider adding an air purifier to your bedroom. Air purifiers filter the air, removing unwanted particles like pollen and boosting the air quality.

If you suffer from allergies, this can improve your sleep quality. An air purifier might make you feel better even if you don't have allergies.


Open the blinds or curtains for natural light

The winter months are short days that call for lots of artificial light. Now that spring is here, turn off the lamps, throw open the blinds or dark, heavy curtains, and let in the sun. Natural light boosts vitamin D production and mood, making you feel happier and more relaxed.

Try opening the curtains or blinds as soon as you wake up and closing them around sunset. On the other hand, if you need to go to bed early, close the curtains at least an hour or two before bed.


Give your space new scents

You might have had cinnamon wafting in October and November, then added some balsam fir candles for a festive December. Now that it’s spring, add new, fresher fragrances to your bedroom.

Light up scented candles with spring scents such as honeysuckle, lilac, and fresh rain. If essential oils are more your style, try basil, geranium, or jasmine in a diffuser.


Update your artwork to reflect the new season

Whether you already have artwork or want to add some, updated decorative pieces that reflect the new season can brighten your bedroom.

Look for artwork with nature scenes, such as flowers, river or meadow landscapes, or birds and butterflies. If abstract art is more your style, look for bright colors. Even a few small pieces can make your bedroom feel fresh and new for spring.
