Spring cleaning doesn't need to just be carried out in the kitchen, bathroom and lounge. Spring is all about new beginnings, so it's finally time to get round to creating a fresh, relaxing escape in your bedroom. This season it's time to give your bedroom a new burst of life, with our spring cleaning makeover ideas for the bedroom.
A thorough clean is the best place to start when it comes to spring refreshing. If you're truly committed to creating a room which boasts ‘relaxing bliss’, then a deep clean is essential. Start at the top of the room, working your way down. The logic behind this process is fairly obvious, but can often go amiss. Starting from the top of the bedroom means that any dust or debris that falls will be swept or hoovered off the floor at the end of your deep clean.
Start by dusting your lights, ceiling and shelves. Use an anti-bacterial spray to then wipe your shelves and drawers clean. Then, strip your bed and give your sheets a wash with your favourite smelling laundry detergent. For the ultimate clean, take all rugs outside and beat the dirt out of them. You’ll be amazed at how much dirt they can hold.
Refresh your walls
Now that your room is sparkling clean, it's time to move onto the fun part. Redecorating your room will bring a new burst of life into your space. One of the most effective ways to redecorate is to brighten your walls with a new lick of fresh paint. When deciding on a colour to paint your walls, you need to consider what mood you’re looking to create. If you’re looking for something to make you feel relaxed, brighten your room with some lighter colours such as white or cream. These colours will not only create a place of rest and relaxation, but will also make your space appear bigger and brighter, which is always a bonus.
If you want to add a splash of personality to your bedroom, perhaps create a feature wall. A feature wall can be any colour you like, as long as your other walls are fairly muted. This year, some popular feature wall colours include grey, navy and rose. If you're really looking for a big change, consider covering your wall with some patterned wallpaper of your choice.
Simply rearranging your furniture is a super budget friendly solution to giving your bedroom a makeover. Using the furniture you already have, simply rearrange it in a layout which you like. Don’t be afraid to try something radical, as the beauty of rearranging is that you can simply move it back if you change your mind. Try putting your bed against a different wall, or putting your rug in a different area. Small changes such as these make a great impact to your bedroom space.
Refresh old furniture
If you've got old furniture which needs a refresh, you can do so quickly and on a budget. If you have an old wardrobe, perhaps try replacing the doors. This solution is brilliant as you don't have to invest in an entire new wardrobe but you can completely change the feel of your room.

Another way to refresh your old furniture is to give it a fresh lick of paint. If you have old shelving units or picture frames, a can of spray paint could give your items a whole new life.
