You don’t have to spend a fortune to make your bedroom feel different. We’ve got a great list of quick changes that can transform your bedroom into a completely new relaxing room.
Incorporate Big Artistic Pieces
If you want to make sure your upgrades are noticed, revamp with large pieces of art or a new artistic headboard. A big mirror can be nice for small spaces, and matches more designs, which is great for future changes.
Put Colors in Accessories
There’s no need to paint your entire room bright orange if you want a pop of color. Rather than coloring your walls, bring in colorful accessories like a patterned headboard and new accent pillows. You can always reupholster chairs and fabric headboards to get the exact pattern you want.
Wallpaper Your Shades
Transform your vinyl window shades from plain white or tan to a more exciting pattern. Grab a few pieces of wallpaper that matches your décor and wallpaper the shades for a fun little upgrade that only takes a few minutes. You can also frame wallpaper for added color, or use it as the backdrop for photos on canvas.
With the right houseplants, you can actually feel the difference that cleaner air brings to your bedroom. Find an area out of the way for a large houseplant that brings just enough color and nature to your bedroom. Make sure it’s not going to drape over the bed or take up space near your desk, but let it function as more of a background piece. You can also add small potted plants to nightstands and end tables.
Make quick small, but noticeable upgrades by changing out your lamps or lampshades for a new style. You can grab plain flat shades and wallpaper them, or find a new design that matches your new artwork.
Reorganize Your Bookshelf
Bookshelves and display shelves can get very cluttered; take a few minutes to reorganize them. You can re-cover some favorite classics with new designs, and incorporate knickknacks and candles that match the décor. Be sure to bring the spines to the front edge of the shelves and intermingle frames pictures or antique bowls for accessories.
Streamline “Getting Ready”
While you’re making small décor changes, be sure to consider your closet, armoire, and vanity area. If you’re most likely to get ready for the day in your bedroom, try to organize all your necessary items in a sensible way. Then you’re less likely to toss accessories and outfits on the bed or floor when you are trying to decide what to wear. Keeping everything streamlined and organized is one of the best ways to keep your bedroom looking fresh.
