Spring is a time to refresh and renew. It’s the time to let go of any baggage that has been weighing you down for the past couple of months, and that starts with your room. It’s easy to let your room accumulate mess and clutter through the winter, when the weather is cold and leaving the comfort of your warm bed gets less and less tempting. But the spring is all about new opportunities. If you feel like you had a difficult winter and are in need of some refreshing, a great place to start is in your room. Renovating your room for spring doesn’t have to be expensive, you just need to make a few simple adjustments and you’ll feel you’re in a brand new space. It’s time to let go of the stresses of the past, follow these 5 tips to refresh your room for spring:
1. Add Color Back in
Springtime is all about the colors! An easy and affordable way to refresh your room without having to blow your budget on all new furniture is with colors. Switch your comforter to something brighter, or just add some colorful throw blankets and pillows. Say goodbye to the dark colors of winter and fall, it’s time to start bringing some brightness back in. Before diving into your technicolor dreams, learn a bit about color theory basics to find a color scheme that’ll work for you.
2. Improve Your Bed
Nothing says spring cleaning more than throwing out your old, overused mattress and switching it for something more comfortable. Spring is the time to prioritize self-care, and that begins with making sure you get enough sleep. But in order to guarantee you always get a good night’s rest, you need to have a comfy pressure-relieving mattress to sleep on. If you have trouble falling asleep, try using a weighted blanket. There are many different types, so be sure to follow a weighted blanket guide to find one that works for you.
3. Make Your Space Cozy
Is there anything better than walking into your cozy room after a long, stressful day? A great way to freshen up your room for spring is to just make it more cozy. Get some new candles, put up some twinkly lights, and add a fuzzy blanket to your bed. Comfy vibes to the max!
4. Hang Plants
As the weather warms up, plants and flowers start to flourish outdoors, so why not bring that vibrance into your room? Adding flowers and plants to your room is a simple way you can refresh and liven up your space (literally). Hanging planters are very stylish and a fun way to bring nature indoors. And if you don’t trust yourself to take care of plants, just get some fake ones. They will look just as good, but don’t require any work. Or, take the time to read through an indoor plant guide to find a low-maintenance solution that suits your lifestyle.
5. Bring in the Natural Light
It’s finally starting to get nice outside, so you’ll want to bring that natural light inside! If you have darker curtains, swap them out for light colored shades. Or better yet, just leave the shades open and let the natural light brighten up your room. Not only will it save you money on electricity because you won’t be turning on the lights, natural light just instantly makes a room look brighter and more open.
You don’t have to go out and buy a whole new set of furniture to refresh your room for the spring. A few simple changes, like bringing in some color, adding plants, and letting natural light in, will give you the appearance of a brand new room in half the time and money. Take this opportunity for new beginnings, to create a space you’ll for the rest of the season and beyond.
