After a long winter, it’s fun to celebrate the most cheerful time of year by refreshing your bedroom. As the days get brighter a littler earlier, the birds chirp a little louder, and the weather becomes warmer, go ahead and open your bedroom windows to let in the fresh air and sounds of spring. This year, welcome spring with these tips to help you enjoy the season and make your bedroom as beautiful on the inside as nature has made it outdoors.
Transform with Lighter and Brighter Elements
Although it’s bright and sunny outside, depending on your bedroom windows, you may not get as much light as you like. Don’t fret, there are many ways you can adjust your bedroom to lighten things up for the spring and summer. For starters, you can easily transform your bedroom by adding custom lighting and replacing overhead lights with perimeter lights. Using brighter bulbs and getting creative with lighting and color also helps. For this time of year, you’ll want to go with lighter colored wood pieces and accents to make your bedroom the brightest place to be this spring. From chests and dressers to chairs and nightstands, our catalog is filled with light wood designs that would look great in your bedroom this spring.
Store Your Heavy Bedding
Besides sleeping with the windows open, warmer days mean you can go ahead and pack away those extra warm flannel sheets and blankets. The best way to store these winter items is in a gorgeous Hope Chest. Whichever style you choose, you’ll find that perfectly carved chests are just the thing to securely hold your thicker sheets and blankets until you’re ready to bring them out again for those cool fall nights.
Make the Switch to Cotton
Now that your flannel sheets are packed away, you can sleep well on crisp, cool cotton sheets. With the warm breeze of the open windows and the smell of spring in the air, you’ll surely sleep well every night with classic cotton sheets. For an even better night’s sleep, choose a lavender spray or oil for your pillow. To induce a peaceful sleep, simply spray or add 3 to 4 drops of lavender oil right on your pillow and enjoy the flowery smell. Thanks to aromatherapy, the sweet aroma on your cotton sheets is one of the best-known ways to sleep soundly while making your entire bedroom smell fresh and light.
Bring the Beauty of Spring to Your Nightstand
Spring is such a beautiful time of year, why not bring a little bit of that sunshiny goodness indoors? For an extra special perk, refresh your bedroom and bring a little beauty of the season inside with a simple bouquet of fresh spring flowers. You don’t have to go all out, and in fact, in this case, the simpler the better. Even a few cherry blossoms picked from your backyard would look lovely next to your bed. Or, go for a classic vase with one to three fresh cut flowers such as Gerber daisies or tulips to brighten up your bedroom and your spirit. For a little added detail, add some flowers in the master bathroom too, or place some fresh pastel colored flower-shaped soaps around for decoration. Bringing the beauty of spring inside will keep you in the spirit of the season, even on those dark rainy spring days.
Spring Clean Closets and Drawers
It may seem like a daunting job, but what better time to clean out closets and drawers than the spring time! Before you start, have a goal and stick to it. When you’re going through a closet or two, it can be easy to find things you haven’t seen for years and start thinking that you should keep everything. Don’t let yourself fall into that trap! A good rule of thumb is, if you haven’t worn it in a year, then it’s time to pitch it (or give it away). Many people hold on to things thinking they will use it in one or two years, but it only ends up cluttering up the closets and taking up space. A little cleaning goes a long way. Don’t worry, you don’t have to get rid of everything! And, you don’t have to go through every single closet in the house. In fact, starting small will actually help you stay motivated and stick with it. This year, welcome spring with clean closets and drawers!
