Are you tired of looking at the same old furniture, décor, and bedding? Why not spice up your life with making small changes to your bedroom? There are several options you can use to revamp your bedroom for a refreshing look and feel.
The following ideas and inspirations will give you quick and relatively inexpensive ideas to create a new sleeping space that soothes your inner decorator soul. Let your imagination guide you, and as a suggestion, only attempt one project at a time, so you don’t get overwhelmed.
If you want to make a quick and dramatic change to your bedroom, try a fresh coat of paint. Think about giving your walls a soft tone. This can help you relax and ultimately fall asleep faster.
If your goal is to add a little pizzazz, an accent wall should do the trick. Accent walls are usually a bold color that helps a piece of furniture, like a bed, stand out.
Painting is the simple part. For most people, choosing the paint color is the thing that causes decision and commitment paralysis. Do not let that happen to you. Be bold!
Choose several colors you love and buy samples, so you can paint a small area and live with the colors for a few days. Experience how each color makes you feel and choose the one that’s most calming and soothing.
Rearrange The Furniture
Rearranging furniture is another cheap and simple fix, but the possibilities are endless. Do not let change keep you from following through. Just make a plan so you don’t get bogged down with the details.
A good suggestion is to use graph paper to draw out the square footage you will be working with and drawing your furniture pieces into the picture to make sure it makes sense before the heavy lifting.
Then grab a friend to avoid injuries and get rearranging. Remember, there is no right or wrong way to arrange bedroom furniture, so be creative and let your imagination run wild.
Buy New Bed Linens
Ok, so you have a great new paint job and furniture arrangement, but something is still amiss. Chances are, it might be your ratty old bed sheets. If so, take your time to research and buy new bed linens; the idea of crawling into bed with brand new fresh sheets is pure bliss.
When deciding which bed linens to choose, it’s ok to think outside the box. The new sheets and duvet covers do not need to match that new paint perfectly. Be creative and have fun.
After all, bed linens are super easy to switch out, even several times a year, to keep the fresh feeling going in your bedroom.
Use Vertical Space
When you have run smack-dab out of room for all of your precious bedroom items, go vertical by adding shelving to bedroom nooks that are otherwise not used. This will allow some flexibility over how and where you store your things.
Another great benefit of vertical storage is that it can help you get rid of some of the clutter in your room, another way to help you relax and fall asleep faster.
It’s amazing how a few new decorations can seriously improve your bedroom. Add a round rug under your bed and let the edges of the circle poke out for a great way to keep the eye moving up and down the room.
You can add is a houseplant. Real plants are highly recommended over fake ones because they do not collect nearly the amount of dust as fake ones. Adding a plant in your bedroom will also add extra oxygen. But remember that plants require plenty of sunlight and water and love.
Another great decoration idea for a bedroom is a beautifully accented pillow. Buying an accent pillow is a quick and inexpensive way to dress up your bed linens and help to make a room pop.
A popular technique on a lot of those home improvement tutorials is to create a DIY headboard. There are several options, ideas, and plans that can be found with a quick search that can inspire and motivate you to add a DIY headboard of your own.
Adding a new headboard can liven up your room and make it feel like you have purchased a brand-new bed with only about a third of the cost.
