Your bedroom is more than just a room with a large bed. It is a place of retreat where you can escape from the household activity, enjoy peace and quiet, and more. Does your bedroom give you that sense of relaxation and privacy? If not, then it’s time to refresh it. Following are some easy ways that will help you give your bedroom a well-deserved makeover.
Change the Lighting
Lighting is a key element of a room but unfortunately, many tend to overlook its importance. Adding lights or replacing them with new ones is an easy way to refresh and brighten up a bedroom and transform it from dreary and dull to dramatic. Just don’t fall into the trap of choosing overhead lights only for your bedroom. It is recommended that you combine them with a dimmer switch so you can adjust their intensity according to your preference. It would also be a good idea to add accent lamps in the form of floor or table lamps and add in task-specific lights, e.g. reading lamps.
Painting is an excellent way to refresh a bedroom. Make sure that the color you choose for your paint will not overpower the décor that you have in the room but will give you that dramatic look. Go from vibrant or coastal to neutral, or the other way around. Experiment with your bedroom colors. If you don’t want to make a big change, then it is recommended that you turn one wall into an accent wall, with a complementary wallpaper or color to enhance the bedroom.
Introduce Texture and Pattern
If your bedroom has a more neutral color palette, then introducing bold pattern and texture gives it a sense of personality. When refreshing a bedroom, using different textures and patterns adds interest and a feeling of substance. Whether this is accomplished with an artwork or a rug, you will be amazed at how great the space will look while including something so simple. Mix and match an assortment of textures and patterns. This gives the room a sense of character while not being too overwhelming.
Mirrors, Art, and Wall Décor
Mirrors, art, and wall décor are also a great way to refresh a bedroom and make the space more inviting. From colorful shades to lamps, plates, vases, and more, the sky is the limit when it comes using décor to refresh a room. No matter whether you choose to add a large mirror, wall décor, or your favorite art, one thing is for certain: you can accomplish the new bedroom look rather easily.
Your bedroom should be an extension of who you are. After all, it is where you spend most of your time when you are home so you want it to be the most personalized, relaxing, and inviting space. The above-listed ways will help you achieve that goal. When refreshing your bedroom, the most important thing is to make sure that you feel confident about your choices. If you are happy with the way you have transformed the look and feel of your bedroom, that’s all that matters.
