People spend upwards of 1/3 of their lives in their bedroom. It’s a place where people go to relax, sleep, study, watch movies, and much more. Since much time is spent in the bedroom, it should be a visually attractive room that you enjoy being in. The color, style, layout, and furniture create the look and feel of the room. If you aren’t satisfied with the current look of your bedroom, here are four tips to get your started with an overhaul.
1. Declutter the Room
Oftentimes a room doesn’t look as good as it can simply because there is too much stuff inside. Decluttering your room and creating space can go long way in improving the appearance of your bedroom. Sometimes you don’t even have to get rid of anything. You may just need to shift some things around or organize better using shelving and other space savers. While you are decluttering your room, it’s also a good idea to go through the closet, getting rid of unused clothing and shoes. You can sell off some of your unused items or simply donate them.
2. Paint the Walls
The tried and true method of remodeling is repainting. Any room in any part of the house can benefit from a fresh coat of paint. It’s very inexpensive to paint a bedroom, and it can go a long way in changing the feel and look of your room. Pick a color that matches the vibe that you are trying to create in the room. Are you going for cozy and warm, minimalism, traditional, or something loud and modern? Also, keep your décor and furniture in mind when selecting a color. You don’t want to pick something that will clash with what you already have. On the other hand, if you plan to replace everything, then paint away!
3. Replace Your Furniture
While this is one of the more expensive ways of remodeling your bedroom, replacing your furniture can completely change the way that your room looks. Perhaps you have some traditional furniture that you’ve had for many years, and you want to go with something more modern. Before you invest in new furniture, keep in mind that there are also inexpensive ways of revamping your furniture. Applying a new coat of paint of varnish to your current furniture can give it a very different look. If your furniture has some slight damage, polishing and covering up can improve their appearance.
4. Frame the Mirrors and Get the Decor Just Right
One of the main keys to making your bedroom look great is getting the accent pieces right. Pick a few art pieces that you like and that match with the style of the room and place them in prominent areas. Pick out a nice rug that will pop and compliment your other colors and patterns. Even window coverings can make a big difference. You can choose between curtains, blinds, or shades in all sorts of colors and designs.
If you have large mirrors in your bedroom, you can also dress them up with a mirror frame. Mirror frames come in multiple colors and designs from traditional to modern and everything in between. It’s one of those remodel options that can be done quickly for a relatively low price while making a significant difference.
