Wake up your Bedroom

The bedroom is the one room of our homes that should be warm, inviting and comfortable. It can creep up on us slowly, but one day our attention is drawn to the frayed edge of the bed skirt; the collection of miscellaneous stuff scattered across the surface of the dresser; or the hand-me-down chair that should have been removed and replaced a long time ago. When areas of your bedroom have become tired and worn or you want to give it makeover without having to spend much money, there are ways to breathe new life the place that should be a soothing and refreshing sanctuary.

Focal Point

The focal point of any bedroom is naturally the bed. Especially if the bed was second-hand, is past its prime or was never quite right for the space (it was too big or too small), you can revitalize the room simply by replacing it. If the bed happens to be the right size for the space, you can give the bedroom a whole new vibe by simply removing the headboard. This will make the bed (and the room too) appear larger. Before removing the headboard, ensure that you can do this with your bed’s frame.

If the bed hasn’t had any new bedding in past three to five years, perhaps now is the time. One of the easiest ways to “renovate” your bedroom is to choose a new bedding set with a fresher or brighter palette than the ones you have had in the past. Whether you replace the bed or not, new bedding will help transform the bed into the focal pint it’s meant to be.

Spring Clean (early or not)

It’s one of those things that can creep up on us – clothes we have no intention of wearing again pushed to the back of the closet taking up space; bits and pieces left discarded in nightstand drawers; or toiletries and beauty products left out on top of the chest of drawers or the dresser. Clear away unnecessary clutter, including areas of your bedroom that you have overenthusiastically accessorized. Limiting the number of pictures or the cluster of ornaments set out on the dresser is another way to de-clutter.

Find creative ways to store things out of sight such as under-bed storage boxes, closet organizers and decorative baskets. Consider some bedroom furniture ideas such as a bed bench with hidden or cubby storage; a small armoire or replacing the bed with one that includes storage options. Having a place for everything in a bedroom environment is a good way to get a good night’s rest.

To Paint or Not to Paint

If the walls aren’t damaged or marked, sometimes thoroughly washing the walls can make the room seem fresher. But if you are getting tired of the color or it’s been awhile since the bedroom has been painted, maybe now is the time; nothing wakes up a bedroom like a new color palette.
