If you’re thinking of making a drastic change in your life, spring is the right time to do it. Think about it: the season is all about transformational change, from the blooming of new flowers to the purging of old clothing. And during these final dark, dreary days of winter, a good home project can be the perfect way to welcome spring. And why not start with the most important room in your home — your bedroom. Plus, during the Presidents’ Day weekend, you can find huge savings on new mattresses, beds, linens and bedroom decor.
For all these reasons, February is the perfect time to get started on a bedroom makeover, especially if you’re prone to the winter blues. When the winter ice thaws and the flowers start to bloom, your bedroom will be perfectly set up for the brighter days to come.
So what’s the difference between a bedroom makeover and a true renovation? A makeover is the kind of project you can complete yourself, even if you have minimal DIY skills.
And if you’ve been putting off a bedroom makeover for years now because of the expense, not to worry. Turns out one of the best destinations for any home redesign project, The Home Depot, is also offering savings on some of their best home goods, linens and bedroom decor for Presidents’ Day.

Time to replace them with a nice cooling comforter so you don’t boil all summer. And maybe add a nice wall hanging, artificial plant or set of towels to the mix as well.

1. Start With the Perfect Mattress
There are a few types of products that are always worth the investment, and a mattress is absolutely one of them. You spend 1/3 of your life asleep, and you deserve to lay your head on a high-quality mattress each night. After all, your sleep is only as good as your mattress.
If you’ve got an old mattress that’s particularly squeaky, too hard, heats up really quickly or is many years old, Presidents’ Day is the perfect excuse to upgrade. Right now, you can save up to 40% off select mattresses at The Home Depot, in sizes ranging from twin all the way up to king.

It has a 10-inch profile, making it perfect for use in master and guest bedrooms, and it decompresses quickly so it can be ready for sleep just 24-48 hours after arrival. Finally, did we mention that this queen-size memory foam mattress costs just $310 during Presidents’ Day?

An 8-inch hybrid mattress like this one from Linenspa Essentials might be more within the budget of some bedroom makeovers, and it still comes with plenty of luxe features like AlwaysCool gel infusions for temperature regulation. A hybrid mattress is the perfect mix of memory foam and springs for bounce and contoured support, and the medium-firm texture makes this perfect for a kids room or guest bedroom.

It’s built to conform to your body and relieve pressure on your joints, and can be bought in sizes made to fit every mattress.
2. Invest in a Few Pieces of Bedroom Furniture You Really, Really Like
The hand-me-down bedroom furniture from your great aunt or grandmother is a lovely gesture, but it’s time to splurge on furniture that’s more… you. The Home Depot has plenty of great bed frames, dressers, wardrobes, nightstands and more to pick from, all of them suitable for a bedroom makeover on a budget.
Typically, we spend the most on living room and dining room furniture, as this is what guests are most likely to see, and so our bedroom furniture is often somewhat lacking in style. But considering how much time we spend in our bedroom, it’s important that you select a few pieces of furniture that you truly love for your private space.
Here are a few of our favorite pieces.
SAUDER Boulevard Cafe 6-Drawer Black Dresser
This minimalist black dresser comes with vintage oak accents and six large drawers for plenty of storage space. The powder-coated metal frame is sleek and stylish, and each drawer has subtle metal handles up top for easy opening and closing.

3. The Right Linens Can Make All the Difference
A spring bedroom makeover isn’t complete without a great duvet and nice set of new towels.
Remember: Temperature regulation doesn’t end with your mattress! Having the right linens can truly improve your quality of life and make all the difference when you’re falling asleep at night. For Presidents’ Day, The Home Depot is offering savings on some of their most popular sheet sets, towel sets, quilts and more.
Go ahead and indulge in a new pair of luxe towels or cooling sheets for your bed.

Remember: the best bedroom makeover ideas are about much more than decor. It doesn’t matter how stylish and comfy your bedroom looks if you aren’t getting the restful sleep you need. So after your bedroom makeover, we hope you’re not still sleeping on regular old pillows. We hope you’re sleeping on jumbo, cooling pillows like these, which have a cooling layer made of Cool Coat Technology as well as memory foam.

3. Add Some Greenery (Even If It’s Fake)
Spring is a time of blooming and greenery, and we think every bedroom looks a little better with some greenery. To brighten up your bedroom this spring, bring some plant life into your sanctuary. You might be surprised how much of a difference it makes.
The Home Depot sells plenty of supplies for gardening and landscaping, but they’ve also got decorative plants for all the black thumbs out there. You can enjoy the decorative perks of greenery without needing to take care of it with these lifelike artificial plants. A great bedroom makeover idea that doesn’t take a lot of work, but can make a huge difference in refreshing your space is adding a plant.
Plus, plants are just one way to add some greenery to your bedroom. Keep reading to find out what we mean!
NATURAE DECOR Artificial Fiddle Leaf Fig
The fiddle fig is known for its large, flat leaves and luscious growth patterns. Add one to the corner of your room or bathroom and soak in all the green energy without needing to water, trim or worry about replanting it. This one can be used indoors or outdoors and is perfect for placing on the floor.
NATURAE DECOR Monstera Artificial
A monstera is another trendy plant known for large-holed leaves and many shades of green from the stem to the leaf tips. This artificial rendition would add a great splash of color to any room, especially your bedroom, and is designed to keep its color with built-in UV resistance.
Magnolia Home Peel & Stick Wallpaper Roll
A splash of green doesn’t have to come from an actual plant, and some bedrooms are too small to accommodate planters anyway. Instead, try adding a botanical-themed wallpaper to your master bedroom or bathroom. You can redo your entire bedroom or simply create an accent wall. This particular olive tree print comes from Magnolia Home, the home decor brand created by Chip and Joanna Gaines.
4. Add Extra Light and Space With a Mirror
Large, decorative mirrors are excellent for bedroom makeovers because they’re equal parts practical and decorative. You can use them when you’re getting ready in the morning, and enjoy all of the light they reflect in the afternoon.
Hot tip: they also create the illusion that your space is larger, which is always a plus. Every interior decorator knows that the right mirror can create a sense of space and depth, making even cramped bedrooms seem a little bit bigger. And once the days start to get longer, a mirror will multiply the sunbeams streaming into your bedroom.
Check out some of our favorite bedroom mirrors below.

5. It’s All in the Details
Small touches — like decorative baskets, wall hangings and vases — can make all the difference when it comes to a bedroom makeover. Adding small elements of decor here and there can not only round out your design scheme, they can also help tie the whole room together, adding color and texture as well.
Home Decorators Collection Gold Metal Wire Decorative Baskets (Set of 3)
Baskets are another great way to add decoration and practicality to your bedroom.
