Beautiful, tranquil, and welcoming are three words that automatically come to mind when thinking about the bedroom. Unfortunately, not many people can describe their bedrooms with these three words.
It’s not too late. You can give your bedroom a makeover to make it the little haven you’d always dreamed about. The following are seven quick tips to consider.
Whenever you feel that your bedroom is no longer inspiring, one of the most common causes is clutter. Sometimes the room has too much “on display.” Perhaps you have multiple pairs of shoes lying around or several pieces of furniture in the small room. The first step to a makeover is to edit the room.
Look around the bedroom critically and try to separate everything you love from those you don’t. The simplest route is to identify those you love and then do away with the rest. Also, anything that doesn’t belong in the bedroom shouldn’t be in the bedroom.
Another bedroom makeover idea that always works is rearranging the entire area. Start with a simple question – does the arrangement of your furniture suit your taste? If not, then you know where to begin. It may seem trivial. However, rearranging furniture can completely change the outlook of the space.
Remember that furniture arrangement starts with the bed. The rule of thumb is to have the bed along the longest wall of the room. The remaining furniture, starting with the reading table, are positioned in a manner that complements the bed.
A fresh coat of paint never disappoints. Why? Because color has a massive impact on mood. A fresh coat of paint uplifts mood and creates a sense of freshness. When it comes to choosing colors, the biggest factor is your personality and lifestyle. Choose a color that excites you.
If you’re more excited by glamour and modern trends, then a darker bedroom color will get your proverbial juices flowing. A deep, dark grey, dark blue, or even black would suit you nicely. However, if you enjoy nature, then yellow and green would be good color choices.
4. Freshen up the lighting
You probably saw this one coming. Lighting is critical in creating a warm and intimate feeling in the bedroom. Fortunately, the best source of lighting in the bedroom is free! All you need to do is bring natural light into your bedroom.
However, natural light is rarely enough. So, you need to think creatively. One of the best solutions in modern times is to layer your lighting to create the perfect ambiance. Strategically place a couple of floor lights in the dark corners, invest in a few wall lights, and perhaps bring in another ceiling light.
5. Match up furniture
Because no one is watching, many people don’t care much about furniture arrangement in the bedroom. It is often a matter of setting up new furniture in the area with the most space without much consideration for eventual layout.
You need to do two things. First, consider replacing bedroom furniture as often as you replace other furniture in your home. It helps to raise the spirits in the bedroom. Secondly, make sure the arrangement works. If a piece of furniture doesn’t fit the bedroom, take it out.
6. Make it warm
Lucky for you, warm, cozy tones are trending now. If your bedroom is light and bright and you’d wish to have something earthier, a light muted coat of paint can be what you need to transform it. Alternatively, you can add a luminous accent wall to introduce new colors every year quickly and expensively.
Another element that can make your bedroom warmer is rugs and throws. Rugs easily soften and make a bedroom feel more welcoming. Merely adding a patterned rug can add texture and style to the room, making it much more inviting.
Now it’s time to add personality to the bedroom through accessories. There are a couple of options here too. For instance, you’ll rarely go wrong with an artwork. Just make sure to choose the right pieces. A bold gallery wall behind the bed where you hang all your favorite art pieces can even serve as the focal point in the room.
We already mentioned the need for proper lighting. You can add a personal touch to your lights by shopping for new lampshades. Additionally, consider adding a comfy chair for reading or pulling on shoes. Or you can reupholster the existing chair.
It’s not too difficult to give your bedroom a makeover. You just need to be creative. Think outside the box, read interior décor blogs, and check out Pinterest for trendy ideas. Above all, be open to experiments. You’ll learn a lot of new styles.
