There’s nothing better than customizing your bedroom so it perfectly represents your style and taste. It transforms your bedroom into your own private sanctuary where relaxation comes easy and comfort surrounds you. Best of all, it doesn’t have to be labor-intensive. In fact, an easy bedroom makeover can done over the course of a single weekend.
Here are ten easy bedroom makeover tips from Trusst’s Wilmington NC home builders for you to put in action this weekend.
#1 – De-Clutter
Sometimes, simply cleaning up the bedroom and getting rid of anything that’s no longer useful can go a long way toward making the space more comfortable. It also gives you the clean slate you need to start your makeover, so begin by de-cluttering your bedroom.
#2 – Move the Room’s Furniture Around
Is your bedroom set up in the most efficient way? Try moving the furniture around to see if you can find a new footprint for the room. As a side benefit, you’ll finally be able to clean under and behind those large, pesky pieces.
#3 – Puff Up Your Bedding
A bedroom should be plush, lush, and comfortable, especially the bed. If you haven’t splurged on a cozy new comforter or duvet, then now might be the time to do it. Simply bringing some new bedding into the equation will pay off big dividends.
#4 – Replace Your Headboard
Your bed’s headboard is a large piece that is often the focal point of the room. Therefore, choose one that’s unique and totally your style. If you’re handy, you can even build one. In either case, just by changing your headboard (or installing one if you don’t have one) can make a dramatic difference in the look and feel of the room.
#5 – Try a Rug
If your bedroom has hard flooring, then placing an appropriate-sized rug under the bed can help break up the “coldness” of the room’s floor. Depending on the room and your furniture, a rug can even be placed on top of your existing carpet to help give the room a more finished and polished look.
#6 – Add Some Color and Design Elements
Color and design is important in any bedroom makeover. While painting the walls and/or ceiling can have an immediate effect on the feel of the room, don’t forget about other areas that could use a touch-up, such as your dressers and nightstands. Applying a fresh coat of paint or even some wallpaper to these items will freshen them up and make them more unique.
#7 – Choose Some New Window Finishing
If you have curtains, try replacing them with a valance, or vice-versa. Or, if you love the light of the morning, try some sheer panels. There are hundreds of different things you can do to your window finishing to help make your bedroom cozier and more to your liking.
#8 – Replace the Lighting
Get rid of any harsh, glaring fixtures and instead install light fixtures with warm-hued shades and lower wattage light bulbs. The lights will illuminate the space in a lush golden glow without being too bright, and this will really set the mood, whether it be relaxation or romance.
#9 – Add Some Plants
Bringing some plants into the bedroom not only improves the air quality in the room but the splash of natural color they offer is unbeatable.
#10 – Replace the Drawer Handles
Go to your local home improvement center and take a walk down their hardware isle. You’re going to be amazed at how many different varieties of handles there are to choose from. Pick a unique handle and replace the ones on your drawers with the new set. You’ll enjoy a brand new looking piece of furniture for a fraction of the cost.
