Five Tips to Update Your Bedroom for Spring

Montgomery Yellow Crane and Canopy

Having a bedroom that’s comfortable, inviting and relaxing, especially after a long day, is super important to me. I want a room that instills peace and tranquility. Even if you’re only spending a limited amount of time in it, it’s important for it to be a space to unwind. Therefore, it should still look good and be a reflection of your style and taste.

Today I’m teaming up with Crane & Canopy to bring you some fresh ideas to update your bedroom for spring. The good news is that a little can go a long way. You don’t have to spend a lot of money (or time) to give it a few changes to reflect the season.

1. Update your bedding.

Your bed is most likely the focal point of your bedroom. It’s probably one of the first things you see when you enter your room. One of the easiest ways to instantly update it is with new bedding. Consider your current decor and what spring colors would work best, rather than completely changing up the room. Think yellow, coral, and navy. A floral duvet print also epitomizes spring. The key to updating your room for spring is to make it fun and easy, so you can relax. If you’re not looking to do a lot, swap out your bedding for a quick solution.

If you don’t have room in your budget for new bedding, I recommend checking out Crane & Canopy’s bedding guide for tips to make your bed,fold a fitted sheet, and more. And let’s be real, we’ve all struggled with fitted sheets. Any of these tips can help you update your bedroom at no cost!

2. Accessorize.

Again, little changes can make a big difference. Add a couple of candles (new scents are the best) or a fun accent pillow to liven up the room. Maybe you add a throw blanket to the end of your bed for texture and color.

Flowers are another easy and affordable way to update your room. I recommend choosing fake flowers for your bedroom and keeping fresh flowers in your kitchen or another area of your home that you occupy more frequently. Fake flowers are low maintenance, and the smell won’t bother you when you’re trying to sleep. Accessories like these can transform a room.

3. Switch out your lampshades.

If you’re like me, you prefer to have a lot of light in your room. I have three lamps in my bedroom, and they all stay on all the time. Swap out your lampshades for some new ones. Don’t be afraid to mix and match. They can be complementary without all being the same.

4. Reorganize.

While this may involve fewer cosmetic changes, reorganizing at the beginning of a new season can definitely impact the feel of your room. After getting rid of things, I always feel refreshed, and that’s what spring is all about.

Take a look at your closet. Are there things in that you haven’t worn in years? Clothing that you’re hoping will one day fit again? Consider selling or donating these. Are there notes from ninth grade algebra that you probably won’t need anymore? Throw them away. It will give you more space and make your room less chaotic and overwhelming. Try reorganizing every season, but if you can’t, spring is definitely the time to do so.

5. Hang artwork.

If your walls are bare, add some fun artwork. There’s tons of inspiration on Pinterest for gallery walls, which can be a great way to add an accent wall to the room. Take the time to do research. You don’t have to spend a ton of money on art to really feel like you’ve made a difference. Especially as a young adult, I certainly don’t have the budget to spend a ton of money on art. I think Design Darling has some more budget-friendly options for artwork. I would also recommend looking at Etsy, or even trying DIY artwork.
