With the dreary winter days behind us, it only makes sense to make changes in our homes that befit the cheery mood outdoors. The spring is the perfect time to change your bedding, stripping your bed of the double-layered wool blankets and flannel in favor of light, crisp linen and cotton. Apart from the routine clean up, that’s typical of any spring, changing the bedding is an easy and effective way of updating its look without too much fuss. Updating your bedding will not only make it aesthetically pleasing, but also helps us enjoy the full benefits of a comfortable sleep.
How to Clean Your Bed for Spring
Before spreading your spring bedding, your bed could use some cleaning. Remove the bedspread, bed sheets, pillow cases, mattress cover, and quilt.
This would be the ideal time to clean your pillows. Most of them are machine-wash-friendly, but always remember to check the tag for cleaning instructions. Run them through the rinsing cycle twice to make sure that all detergent or soap is rinsed off.
If possible, let the mattress sit in the sun for a few hours. This freshens it up by dispersing any smells and scents that might have accumulated over the winter. You can also vacuum it to get rid of the trapped dust. Before re-making the bed, flip it over as this will help it wear evenly.
How to Choose the Best Bedding for Spring
Here are a few simple bedroom hacks that will help you easily transition from the winter to the spring.
Swap Heavy Bedding for a Layered Comforter
With the unpredictability of the spring weather, it would be ideal to opt for a layered duvet. This way, you will be ready for unreasonably chilly nights and for the warm ones.
Choose Lightweight and Breathable Bedding
Linen and cotton are not only lightweight but also naturally breathable. These bed sheets will keep you comfortable all night long as it is naturally moisture wicking. This means that you can use them right through to the summer
Of course, there’s no limit of seasonal items that you can utilize for your patio door curtains and window. From stickers to specialty lights and even the curtains themselves, there’s no shortage of ways to spruce things up for the holidays! It’s one more way to get into the seasonal spirit, and your guests will love it!
Add a Pop of Color
Bring the outdoors to the indoors by changing your bedroom’s color scheme. Choose bright pastels of your new quilt, comforter, bed skirt or bedspread to add depth. You can replace your plain sheets with those with an embroidered or scalloped edge for an instant makeover. Consider replacing your rugs, lampshades, throw pillows, and curtains in lighter or neutral hues. Popular spring colors you can include in your bedrooms décor include light green, yellow, white, light blue, and coral among others.
