5 Easy and Affordable Tips to Transform Your Bedroom from Winter to Summer

As the chilly embrace of winter gives way to the warmth and brightness of summer, it's the perfect opportunity to refresh your home. A quick and affordable restyle can bring a burst of summer energy into your space.

This week, let’s start with the bedroom, where a few simple updates can make a world of difference. Here are some tips and tricks I’ve used to revitalise my own bedroom for the sunny season:

Declutter and Brighten

Decluttering is a key step in any restyle. During the winter, we tend to accumulate a lot of stuff that clutters our bedrooms. Start by clearing out items you no longer need—donate, recycle, or sell them. This will immediately open up your space, creating a fresh canvas for your summer makeover.

Polish and Paint

Winter can leave furniture looking a bit dull. Instead of splurging on new pieces, bring out the polish and give your furniture a thorough clean. A good polish can rejuvenate your furniture and floors. If you’re feeling creative, a fresh coat of paint in a light, summery hue can completely transform your pieces. Sometimes, a little effort is all you need to make your old furniture look new again.

Embrace Soft Furnishings

One of the easiest and most affordable ways to revamp your bedroom for summer is by updating your soft furnishings. Swap out heavy winter bedding and curtains for lighter, breezier options—experiment with bright colours, playful patterns, and airy fabrics. Change up your rug and add some new cushions and throws to keep things fresh and vibrant. Consider lighter duvet and pillow inserts for a cooler, more comfortable feel during the warmer months.

Lighten Up

To instantly change the atmosphere of your room, focus on the lighting. Summer calls for bright, cheerful lighting. Consider adding a new lamp or two with a lighter design, or simply change the bulbs in your existing fixtures. Opt for higher wattage bulbs or switch to white light for a crisp, clean glow that mimics the summer sun.

Accessorize with Summer Vibes

After decluttering, it’s time to add some summer-inspired accessories to your room. Mirrors, candles, plants, and vases filled with fresh flowers are perfect, inexpensive ways to introduce summer’s vibrant energy into your bedroom.

These small additions can make a big impact, giving your room a fresh, updated look without a major overhaul. I hope these tips inspire you to restyle and refresh your bedroom for the summer season. Share your transformation with us on Instagram using the tag #styleandform.
