Tired of your old boring bedroom? Your room should be your sanctuary. A place where you can escape. If your room doesn’t fit that description, then it’s time for a change. You can make your bedroom look its best by tidying up and giving it some flair. Here are a few tips on how to upgrade the bedroom look.
Clear the clutter
Rid the bedroom of anything that isn’t conducive to relaxation or romance, including the TV–research shows that having one in the bedroom hinders sleep. At the very least, hide any stress-inducing clutter in a stylish container.
Buck up the bedding
If you don’t already have one, consider a duvet or comforter. A new duvet cover and matching shams can help create a whole new look, which means that going from graphic to girly, modern to classic, primary to pastel, can be accomplished in a snap.
Get your move on
Even a slight shift in a room’s furniture configuration can add new life to familiar quarters, so don’t be afraid to shake things up. And while you’re at it, rotate and flip your mattress to prevent uneven wear.
Dress up the dresser
Wallpapering or painting the front of a dresser or nightstand drawers is an easy way to incorporate new colour and design elements. An accent of floral paper can convert a previously dowdy dresser into a feminine classic.
You can handle it
Replace old drawer handles and pulls with decorative ones. This low-effort trick adds personality and style to nondescript or inexpensive furniture.
Turn off the high beams
Keep bedroom lighting subdued. Nightstand lamps or wall sconces should be close enough for bedtime reading, but use three-way bulbs so you can adapt the wattage to your needs or mood.
Make your bedroom comfy
Top your bed with covers made for snuggling, like a down comforter. For total indulgence, choose ultra-soft eiderdown. Pile on the pillows, and don’t shy away from mixing patterns. Combine large prints with small ones, florals with geometrics.
Make the room come to life
Houseplants generate oxygen and remove toxins from the air, so head to the nursery and ask for watering, feeding, and maintenance tips for the plants you like.
