When it comes to decorating our home, I feel that the bedroom can be a little forgotten. We don’t mean to of course, but it happens to be the room that not many people see. So it heads further down your priority list. But your bedroom can be updated quickly and easily, with minimum fuss. You won’t believe the difference it could make to your mood. Sleeping in a fresh, clean and tidy space will help you relax more in an evening. So what are you waiting for? Here are a few tips to get your bedroom updated fast.
Clutter is not your friend
Our bedrooms can be piled with clutter. Be it clean washing that needs putting away. Stacks of books and unread magazines. Even makeup and skin products can be left out and about without thinking. If you are serious about updating your bedroom, the clutter has to go. You won’t believe the difference a minimal space will make to the aesthetics of the room. While you are at it, you could consider delving into draws and wardrobes and getting rid of older items. Once you start you won’t be able to stop. Once the clutter has been organised it might be worth considering some alternative storage solutions. This will make it much easier to keep your room the way it is.
A lick of paint can be a sure fire way to make a big difference
The first sign of an outdated bedroom could be the colour of the walls or old wallpaper. This is the place you can make the biggest difference. Stripping the wallpaper or addinga new colour to the walls can brighten up the room and make it feel different and new. Some colours can have an effect on how you sleep or feel in a room, so make sure you do some research.
Only spend money on key pieces
There will no doubt be certain things that need replacing in your bedroom. This could be the flooring or carpet. Or maybe even some of the key pieces of furniture like a bed. Again changing the flooring can make a massive difference to the room. You could opt for something a little more modern like a wooden flooring. Or if you like the feel of carpet perhaps changing it for a more neutral tone could be the way to go. Don’t go overboard when it comes to replacing all your furniture. This can end up making your bedroom makeover quite expensive. However, your bed is always something that may need to be replaced, a mattress in particular. There are many different options to consider, like the type of bed or the style of bed, be it slats, for example. You may want to consider checking out some bed slat guides for more information. Other pieces of furniture could be updated with a lick of paint.
Think about your bedroom and style accordingly
If you want your bedroom to be a place to relax, then add some lovely cushions or throws to your room. If you like to read then maybe think about creating a reading nook to do just that. Your bedroom should be a place of sanctuary and relaxation, so style it up to the way you want it to be.
