You are likely to spend more than one-third of your life in your bedroom, so it should be a space where you feel comfortable, relaxed and inspired. While completely redecorating the room would be a dream come true for many, it is also a time consuming and expensive task to undertake.
Fortunately, you can increase the appeal and augment the ambiance of your bedroom by making a few simple changes or incorporating a couple of new items into the room. Learn some uncomplicated steps that will have you reveling in your updated room.
Headboards are ideal when you want to dress up your bedroom quickly and affordably. If you do not already own one, there is no need to go out and purchase a new one either. You can create headboards using many items you have in your attic, garage or even your garden.
For instance, you can paint some old shutters or windowpanes and lean them up against the wall behind your bed.
A bookshelf that is the same width as your bed works nicely, as does a trifold screen.
Decorative pillows can add a pop of color, tie the different shades in a room together and add a variety of height, depth, and textures to your bedroom. Pile pillows onto the bed, varying shapes, sizes and patterns as you do. You can also use decorative pillows elsewhere in the room. For instance, if you have chairs in the room, toss one or two on each. You could also stack decorative pillows on a window seat to create an inviting area to read.
A quick and inexpensive coat of paint updates any room instantly, and your bedroom is no exception. Paint all the walls and the ceiling or simply create a single accent wall. Another option that works well for renters is to paint furnishings, such as nightstands or headboards, in vivid shades. This is a great way to bring out the colors found in your decorative pillows.
Renewing your bedroom can be quick, uncomplicated and even enjoyable when you just make a few simple changes. Before long, you may begin to look for ways to freshen up other areas in your home, as well.
