Bedrooms are special to us as a relaxing space to retreat into at the end of the day. Changing your bedroom’s look need not always mean an expensive top-to-bottom redo. Here are some simple ideas to make a dramatic change to your living space, and what’s best they can be done over a weekend.
1. Change the bedding
Consider adding a duvet or a comforter if you don’t already have one, as new bedding is a sure fire way of giving your bedroom a makeover, it can take the room from girly to graphic, modern to classic, bright to pastel, and so on.
2. New hardware
This low-effort trick will add your own personality and flair to your private space. Something as simple as replacing old drawer handles with decorative ones are an inexpensive and easy way of creating an aesthetic.
3. Add a headboard
A wall mouthed headboard will add a certain flair and sleek charm to even the simplest bed. Painting on your own wall stencil headboard will create a brighter and fun aesthetic.
4. Dress up the dresser
A statement display on your dresser makes for a good distraction from our usually messy and overflowing drawers. Eye-catching additions such as hanging posters, brass figurines, or family photographs will do the trick.
5. Clear the clutter
Free your bedroom from any anti-relaxation factor, including the TV, because according to research, having a TV in the bedroom affects our sleep timings. As for other knick-knacks, stow them away in a stylish container.
6. Create a reading corner
Reading corners in your bedroom make for a very warm and homey vibe. This can be achieved by adding a cozy chair, a standing lamp, and a small bookstand to make your bedroom look like a brand new space.
7. Add interesting trim
Adding trim or rickrack or ribbon borders on your bed skirts, pillowcases or shams can make for a massive change. Matching the details on your bedding ties to the headboard can create a very cohesive look.
8. Lay down a rug
A properly-sized area rug to a room adds dimension to it and makes it look bigger and more pulled together, even if added on top of carpeting. Just make sure when you buy a rug that it’s large enough to tuck under the bed and at least one other piece of furniture.
9. Rearrange furniture
The slightest of changes in the room’s furniture or décor can make a major change in the overall look of your bedroom. While you’re at it, flip the mattress over to prevent uneven wear.
