While you may not believe it when you look out the window or step outdoors, the fact is that spring just a month and a half away, which means it’s the perfect time to start putting together your list of spring projects. As the weather changes, so may your décor, style, and lifestyle needs, prompting you to carry out some makeovers in your home.
One room you may want to set your design sights on is the master bedroom, which can always seem to benefit from some simple yet well-planned projects. Here we’ll take a look at how you can go about giving your master bedroom a budget-friendly and easy spring makeover.
Pick Up Lightweight and Breathable Bedding
As the temperatures rise heading into spring and then summer, there is no longer a need for those heavy plush blankets on the bed. Instead, it’s the perfect time to invest in lightweight and breathable bedding that will help ensure your body stays a more comfortable temperature. Organic bedding, such as what you’d find from Lily Mortimer, is made from 100% organic cotton – making it soft, breathable, and lightweight.
Depending on your budget and your needs, you can either grab just the sheets, or update your bed’s look entirely with a new comfort or duvet set as well.
Update Your Window Coverings
Window coverings are another item in the bedroom that helps add to the décor and overall feel of the room. Over time, window coverings tend to fade from the sun and become worn looking, so they will need to be replaced every few years or so. In this category you have all kinds of options such as blinds, heavy drapes, and sheers, each of which has its own list of pros and cons.
How About a Fresh Coat of Paint?
Another budget-friendly change that offers maximum impact is to give the room a fresh coat of paint. When you do the painting yourself, this is usually a very cost-effective makeover project. You can also choose to get really creative by doing a feature wall, adding a pattern or texture to the walls, and really changing the entire feel of the room.
Swap Out Old Hardware
If your bedroom furniture is starting to look and feel a little tired, but it’s not in your budget to buy all new furniture, then you can always look at swapping out the old hardware for new and modern pieces. Replacing all the handles on your drawers and cupboards will instantly modernize the space, and you may just find yourself falling in love with your furniture all over again.
There is also the possibility that you may be able to refinish your furniture as a DIY project. This will depend on the material of course.
A Fresh New Space
Each of these cost-effective projects will allow you to spruce up your master bedroom and create a welcoming and fresh feeling new space, just in time for spring.
