Your bedroom is your sanctuary. It is here where you relax, recharge, start, and end your days. It is one of the places that guests may not see, but that does not mean that you should neglect it. You must pay attention to it just like you do with the other parts of your home – think of it as self love.
Take a look at your bedroom, when was the last time you updated it? Do you still have the same old sheets and pillowcases that you bought for Christmas five years ago? What about the curtains? What if you could look forward to going to bed, to feel at peace upon entering your sleeping oasis. Treat yourself! You’ll thank us.
There are many things that you can do to your room to make it lively and fresh once again without breaking the bank. Here are our favorite suggestions.
Introduce Some Plants
Plants are wonderful. Aside from their aesthetic appeal, they can literally help in reducing toxins in the air, which will then make the air quality in your home much better. They also come with aromatherapy benefits. So if you have plants in your bedroom, you will have a more relaxing atmosphere, allowing you to get a good night’s sleep.
Adding plants to your bedroom, be it on the floor, walls, or bedside table can instantly change how the space looks like. It would look fresh and appealing. You have lots of options, too, when it comes to indoor plants. You just have to pick one that complements the theme that you want for your room.
Hang a Mirror
Mirrors are one of our favorite home decor accessories. With one hanging or positioned on the floor against the wall, you can easily take a glimpse of yourself. It will bounce light around the room, making it appear larger than it really is.
There are thousands of mirror designs that you can choose from as well. You may opt for the modern ones or perhaps those that are vintage-looking. With mirrors alone, you can decorate a wall in your bedroom and transform it into an accent wall.
Display Wall Art
If you are into minimalism, then, yes, bare walls work great. But at the same time, this may look dull, too. Maybe you have left the walls in your bedroom empty for years already, so now is the best time to make a change. You really don’t have to fill the wall with lots of framed artwork. You can probably hang one big piece. And if you want to add a few small items later on, you are free to do so. Just arrange the artwork neatly and create a so-called gallery wall.
Try a New Lighting Scheme
If there’s one thing that can have the most dramatic effect on your bedroom, its the lighting. Instead of settling for the traditional bulb or overhead lighting, add a lampshade if you have a bedside table. If not, you can also make use of a floor lamp. This way, you’ll have various sources of lights with different heights, too. Pro tip: Add some candles to create a romantic atmosphere.
Change the Furniture Layout
Do you know what else you can do to give your sanctuary a new look without spending a single dime? Move your furniture around. By simply changing things up, you can create more room, and create an entirely new vision. Getting rid of clutter and organizing your space is a must – do this and you will see a huge difference.
Create an Accent Wall
Breathe some life into your space and create an accent wall. How? Well, you have plenty of options. You can create a gallery wall, paint one wall with a bright color, or even hang a beautiful cloth or tapestry.
Swap out your rug
Area rugs are not only good for keeping the floors warm and comfy but they can also add beauty to any room. Now, when it comes to your bedroom, this addition can make all the difference. A single rug can definitely brighten up and give your sanctuary a fresh look. With lots of colors, sizes, shapes, and patterns to choose from, you will never run out of options. You also have the freedom to add more than one to your room, or you can layer them up to add texture, pattern, and make a statement!
Adding an area rug will make a room more beautiful, cozy, and inviting.
Accessorize Your Bedside Table
Bedside tables are not only meant to house your alarm clock or gadgets on but they can also make a statement. No matter how simple your bedside table may be, you can always accessorize it with perhaps a colorful vase with fresh flowers in it, a stack of books, or a decorative object.
Invest in New Pillow Cases and Sheets
