Is your bedroom only a place to sleep? It shouldn’t be!
Your bedroom should be an oasis, a place to recharge, and a space to rest. If you glean no motivation or energy from your bedroom space, it’s time to consider redecorating.
Decorating a bedroom can be a simple process to refresh your space. Read on for five tips to transform your bedroom into your favorite room in your house.
1. Incorporate Soothing Colors
An easy first step in creating a beautiful bedroom is to update your room’s paint color. You might be surprised by how much a fresh coat of paint can spruce up a room.
When standing in front of the paint swatch wall at the hardware store, aim for subtle and soothing colors. Consider using light shades of blue, lavender, or green to create a calm and restful space.
2. Choose the Right Furniture
There’s nothing more uncomfortable in a bedroom than a cluttered space with little walking room.
It’s essential to plan your bedroom furniture per the size of your space.
Choose simple bedroom furniture that does its job and gives you plenty of room to move around.
3. Make Your Bed the Focal Point
The primary use of your bedroom is to sleep. So, why not make your bed the focal point of your room?
Some of the best decorations are the most simple ones, especially in your bedroom. Consider updating your duvet cover, adding throw pillows, or a fancy throw blanket.
Take it a step further and add a headboard that matches the personality and style of your room. Use this guide to find the best headboard for your space.
4. Don’t Forget Storage
Your bedroom decor should be both decorative and functional. A big vintage dresser with small drawers doesn’t help store clothes or shoes.
Your furniture should have adequate storage space, or you can find subtle ways to increase storage space in style. Find a storage bench to put at the foot of your bed or a rustic bookshelf to hold books and decor.
If you have a smaller bedroom, you can consider a custom storage build for your closet or bedroom to maximize your storage.
5. Layer Your Lighting
When it comes to lighting, you are not limited to an overhead light and a window.
As you narrow down your decorating ideas, you could layer your bedroom lighting. Try adding side table lamps, an accent light to replace your overhead light, or an adjustable light to fit your need or mood.
