Whether you’re in the market for new bedding options or just looking to zhuzh up your space a bit, we firmly believe that self-care = investing in stuff for your space that sparks joy. And since spring cleaning is the name of the game right now, we rounded up some items to help you refresh your bedroom decor and give it a good old-fashioned upgrade. We’ve got everything from cooling sheets that are great for hot sleepers to accessories that’ll make your space feel extra special and cozy.

Best sheets, blankets, and bedding for spring

Brooklinen percale sheets

Percale sheets for when you want something classic that’ll last…

Sometimes you just gotta restock your basics and no one does reliable bedding like Brooklinen. This classic sheet set — you’ll get a flat and fitted sheet, and two pillowcases — is a go-to (ahem, it’s got more than 14K customer reviews) for a reason. It’s made from 100% long-staple cotton that mimics the feel of hotel-style sheets. They’ll get softer with every use and wash. Plus, they have “long” and “short” sides labeled on the inside so it’s easy to make the bed after you wash them. ($111.20+, Brooklinen)

Baggu pillowcases

Pillowcases that’ll jazz up any space…

If you prefer a neutral bedroom with just a hint of personality, these are calling your name. They add the perfect pop of color and will make you happy every time you see them. They’re 100% organic cotton, machine washable, and can fit a standard pillow size. Love it. ($34/set of 2, Baggu)

Linen sheets

Linen sheets that won’t break the bank…

Linen’s great for hot sleepers, but not always budget-friendly. Enter: This 100% natural French linen sheet set that packs the quality but doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. They’re sourced from Normandy and are stone-washed (as compared to chemically washed), so they’ll be super soft to the touch. The sheets are hypoallergenic, moisture-wicking, and breathable too, so less tossing and turning when your room gets hot. Other features we love? They have deep pockets and rip-resistant elastic so they won’t slip off your mattress and move around every time you hop into bed. Win. ($145+, Amazon)

Coyuchi organic cotton comforter

An organic cotton comforter that’s also good for the environment…

If you’ve got Earth Day on your mind every day, you might wanna scoop up this 100% organic cotton comforter. It’s grown and woven in India, GOTS-certified, and comes in a reusable organic cloth bag instead of plastic packaging. Depending on your needs it can act as a standalone comforter or as a duvet insert (it has corner loops, which make it easy for anchoring). Plus, it’s machine-washable which makes caring for it no big deal. ($298+, Coyuchi)

Buy it
Hypoallergenic pillow

A hypoallergenic pillow to keep the allergies at bay…

It’s made with a combination of bamboo, rayon, and foam that’s free of harmful chemicals. Customers who’ve had problems with down-filled pillows aggravating their allergies say they slept better on this one. It’s also customizable for different types of sleepers. Take some foam out, put some back in, and you’ll find the firmness that’s perfect for you. ($69.99+, Amazon)

Buy it
Casper waffle throw blanket

A woven throw blanket if you’re ready to swap out your comforter…

Out with heavy, winter duvets, in with something light and airy. This 100% organic cotton waffle throw is made from a soft, drapey waffle weave and will add the perfect hint of texture to any space. Choose from two neutral colors, drape it around yourself while you take an afternoon nap or throw it on your bed for use at night. Sweet dreams. ($89, Casper)

Buy it
Cooling bamboo sheets

Cooling bamboo sheets that look and feel luxurious…

Just because it’s eco-friendly doesn’t mean it has to look like it. These 100% bamboo sheets are silky-soft and ultra breathable thanks to their weave’s cooling effects. If you’re someone who’s constantly tossing and turning at night, you might wanna think about investing in these. Thanks to the deep pockets and inside labels, making the bed will be that much easier. According to the brand, their silk is comparable to a 1,000-cotton thread count. Plus, the sheet sets (you’ll get a fitted sheet, flat sheet, and pillowcases) reportedly use 500x less water and produce 52% less CO2 than traditional cotton. Do good, feel good, sleep good. ($169+, Ettitude)

Wayfair mattress pad

A machine-washable, waterproof mattress pad…

Because the last time you changed yours out was…never, so it’s probably time to think about replacing the one you have. This stain-resistant pad lets you protect your mattress without skimping on the comfort. The diamond-quilted top has a hypoallergenic down-alternative fill to provide some extra softness and its elastic skirt fits snugly around the mattress so you won’t have to worry about it slipping off. Phew. ($32.99+, Wayfair)

Bedroom wall decor and accessories

Brooklinen hanging ladder

A hanging ladder to show off your special items…

For the clothes you want to wear for your big night out, your favorite bag you wanna display, and everything in between. This leaning ladder doesn’t require any wall mounting and is made of steel and wood. It comes with silicone padding on both ends so you don’t have to worry about damage to your floors and walls. Choose white or black, and get ready to post a picture to your Instagram feed. Say cheese. ($66, Brooklinen)

Dumpling light
Urban Outfitters

The cutest boba light for your bedside table…

You can never have a bad day if boba is involved. Why not give yourself the gift of this absolutely adorable bubble tea light?

($22, Urban Outfitters)

A printed planter to jazz up your bedroom window…

Treat your plant the way you want to be treated…that’s the saying, right? There’s nothing better than filling your space up with lots of greenery. However, with that comes the need for some pots.

Ruggable rug

A geometric rug that’s incredibly easy to clean and looks great on your social feed…

Once you try a Ruggable you’ll never go back. The brand is famous for its two-piece system that makes cleaning up super easy. Each one comes with two parts — a cover and a pad (you can opt for a cushioned one if you prefer). When you’re ready to clean it, you can peel off the cover and throw it in the washing machine. It’s great for anyone who tends to spill their wine, has pets who leave their marks, or kiddos who can’t keep anything clean. This Jonathan Adler optical one comes in a ton of different sizes and shapes, from runners and 2x3s to round options and big area rugs. Go for it. ($109+, Ruggable)

If you’re like us, you might enjoy restocking your candles every season. For spring, we’re loving these bright eye-catchers. They’re about 9 inches tall and will look adorable no matter where you put them. Burn, baby, burn. ($14/2 pack,
