Upgrade your Bedroom
You spend a huge chunk of your life in your bedroom, but if you’re like me, it’s one of the rooms you give the least consideration, in terms of decor. Usually there are a few central pieces of furniture to think about, and beyond that, it seems like a matter of keeping linens clean. But there are plenty of ways that you can easily and cheaply refresh your bedroom.
A Plush Headboard
We’re all for productivity. But during the winter months, who doesn’t want to spend the day in bed? And if there’s a blizzard going on outside, then you’re going to want the most comfortable bed possible. If you’re wont to spend the day in bed now and again, a plush headboard makes sitting up in bed exponentially more comfortable.
A new rug is an instant game-changer in the bedroom. A large rug under the bed anchors the room, and a smaller, plush rug can be added to the side, giving your toes a sensuous treat when you get out of bed each morning. With so many floor covering options available today, it can be tough to decide what to put on your floor – for example, deciding between carpet and hardwood. Some may wonder if carpet holds any advantages over other types of hard surface floors.
Remove any pieces that are not necessary in your bedroom. Your furniture should be pleasing to your personal aesthetic but functional, too. It is too tempting to throw your stuff on that extra chair at the end of the day, causing chaos and clutter. When it comes to bedroom furniture, less is more in achieving a truly relaxing environment. A substantial piece of furniture which hides any chaos and clutter is a fitted wardrobe. These simply fit into your bedroom allowing you to organise and keep your clothes neat and tidy.
Hang Some Art
Most of us probably have some extra pieces of art lying around. Put those pictures to good use and add an instant dose of colour to the bedroom. Even if your art isn’t framed, you can still use washi tape, binder clips, or vintage hangers to cheaply put it on display.
Less is More
As you refresh your bedroom, remember that more décor doesn’t always mean more style. Because bedrooms are for rest and relaxation, consider removing items that make the space feel overcrowded or over decorated.
