The bedroom should be a sanctuary for rest and relaxation, but for most people, it remains the most neglected room in the house. Are you ready to show your bedroom a little love?
These are simple, cheap and chic bedroom decorating ideas that will add style to your resting space.
First, examine your room’s layout. By moving the furniture, you can give your room a new and fresh look. Most bedrooms have more than one wall that the bed can be placed against. You’ll find waking up to a new view quite rejuvenating.
Make It Pop with Color and Fabric
Painting is the quickest, easiest and most affordable bedroom decorating makeover technique. You can make it as a fun project by throwing a painting party for friends. Ply them with treats and play good music while you paint. Not only does this save money and time, but it also provides instant gratification and gives the space a whole new look. If painting isn’t for you, fabric just might do the trick. PVC pipe is a secret trick that can be found at your local hardware store and it is so inexpensive and comes in long lengths. Gather gorgeous store-bought panels on the PVC, and secure the piping to the wall with window treatment hardware made for wooden dowels. You’ll love the color and texture that have been added to a bedroom.
Switching up bedding can be costly, but there are easy ways to give your bed a new look without paying for all new goods. If you have a colorful duvet cover, try folding it back to expose a solid blanket underneath. You can also break up the pattern by adding a neatly folded solid blanket at the foot of your bed. If you are in the market for a new duvet or coverlet, it is advisable to purchase a neutral tone; it will have greater longevity and work with a wider choice of accessories. When you’re accessorizing your bedding, consider using one long pillow for a cleaner look, instead of using many pillows. Find one that has a great pattern or a vibrant color so the pillow pops off the neutral background. Making the bed isn’t such a chore when there is only one accent pillow to place. Buy a few different pillow shams and give your room a mini-makeover once a month by switching them out.
A Head of the Rest
A headboard can give a bedroom a finished look and can be created for little or no money if you think outside the box. For this purpose, it is recommendable to apply intricately carved woods screens by simply removing the hinges with a screwdriver and mount the panels on the wall with picture frame wire. The triptych-style headboard allows the color of your wall to show through. Another super stylish option? Create a “headboard” with several picture frames. Grasp six to nine matted frames and fill them with your favorite wrapping paper or handmade paper. Then display the frames in a grid pattern above your bed. Instant focal point!
Eye on Accents
Once you’ve added color, refreshed your bedding and created a headboard for your bedroom, you’re ready to add defining details. You may give yourself a gift of fresh seasonal flowers once a week and place them in a large vase on top of tall dresser. Also, you can purchase some antique lamps and update them with a coat of spray paint and a new shade. Your chic bedroom won’t be complete without a sitting area. Create a fun moment in the corner of your room or near the closet with a clean-lined chair, a small table, and a cool lamp.
