Did you know you will spend approximately one-third of your life asleep? If you are going to spend this much time in bed, shouldn’t you have a comfortable room?
For bedrooms that are disorganized or uninspired, it can be difficult to relax. It probably won’t help how you feel when you wake up in the morning, either. Do you use your bedroom as a focal point for time with the family? Do you read or snuggle in bed with your kids? If the space is depressing and dingy, it won’t help create the relaxing gathering you were hoping for.
There is some good news, though. Remodeling your bedroom is one of the most affordable projects you can take on. There’s no need to install new windows or to remove any structural elements. In many cases, all you have to do is clean the space and move some things around.
Keep reading for some helpful tips to remodel your bedroom and see how these small, simple steps can transform any space.
Purge and Organize
Similar to any other home makeover project, much of the makeover process will involve getting rid of items you don’t need or want. For example, you may love to read before bed, but you don’t need an entire stack of books on your bedside table. You should put books you are not actively reading back on the shelf or donate them to the local library.
For most people, their closet is in their bedroom. Because of this, it is a good time to eliminate unused shoes, coats, and clothing. You can even purchase a cedar chest or wardrobe for items you want to keep but need out of your closet.
Create a Soothing Environment
Adding a new color of paint to the bedroom is one of the most affordable and fastest ways to change the space’s look and feel. Be sure to choose a color that works with the trim. You should also look for a color that will enhance the ambiance you want for your bedroom. Also, keep in mind, one of the best things about paint is that it is not permanent. If you don’t like the result, you can paint over it.
Invest in Quality Window Coverings
You may have heard it is the rug that pulls everything together; however, it’s the window coverings that really matter in the bedroom. Since bedrooms are usually smaller and have large furniture in them, the eye moves to the bed – which is exactly where your window coverings come in. Remember, some window coverings are expensive, so the first step is to figure out what type of coverage you need.
Remember, when decorating your bedroom, you want to create a place where you can escape and where you will feel comfortable. When you do this, you will actually want to spend time there and enjoy the ambiance you have created—being informed and knowing what options to consider will help you with this process.
