The Updates That Will Take Your Bedroom From Drab To Fab

I am a firm believer in everyone having an amazing bedroom that reflects their personality or their interests. For example, I am a lover of all things fashion and I wanted my room to have a boutique style feel with all of the clothing, shoes, and accessories that I love on display for all to see. Not only does it make me feel like I’m in a giant walk in closet but, I have to admit, it’s nice to have my friends admire all of my favorite things as if they were in a chic little New York shop! Here are some tips for making your room the best that it can be and totally, uniquely you.

The Updates That Will Take Your Bedroom From Drab To Fab:

When you look around your bedroom, you should love what you see. It should be a space that’s comfortable, cozy, and totally appealing. Your bedroom is the place that you start and end the day in, which is why it’s so important for it to be a space that you love. Believe it or not, our surroundings have a big impact on our happiness and moods, hence why it’s so crucial to have a well-designed bedroom.

Decorating your bedroom should not just be jamming a few pieces of furniture into the room and calling it quits; it’s about creating a space that is smart and stylish. It should also be somewhere that you actually enjoy spending time in. If your bedroom is lacking a sophisticated and stylish design, it’s time to change that. The updates listed below should help you to take your boring, dreary bedroom and turn it into a space that you look forward to spending time in.

The first step to revamping your room is to consider what style you would like to decorate your bedroom in. Have you always dreamed of having a hotel-style bedroom that’s luxurious and elegant? Do you love the idea of a pretty pastel-hued room? Perhaps you’re a big fan of rose gold and pink? Before you start designing the space, you should know what type of look you would like to create. If you’re unsure about which style would work well in your bedroom, it’s a good idea to take the time to get inspired. Flick through home design magazines, read interior design blogs, and use sites like We Heart It for ideas.

Once you’ve decided on what type of style you would like to design the room in, the next step is to focus on the walls. Do you have any preference over how you decorate the walls? Does the idea of matte paint sound more appealing than sheer paint? Would you prefer to use wallpaper to decorate? Take the time to think about your wall decoration choices to establish the best option is for you. If you like the idea of using paint but want to add a pop of pattern, consider adding an accent wall with wallpaper. It’s amazing how much difference a feature wall can make to the look and feel of a space.

It’s best to leave laying new flooring until after the painting has been completed. Otherwise, you could end up accidentally staining your new flooring. When it comes to selecting the perfect type of flooring for your room, it’s a case of working out what is most practical. For bedrooms, carpet can be a good option because it’s soft and gives a cozy feel. However, if you’re someone who is prone to spilling things, hard flooring might be a better option. If you’re worried about the room feeling too cold, you could always add an area rug or could invest in underfloor heating. A major benefit of hard flooring is that it tends to be longer lasting than carpet, making it a better value for your money.

The furniture that you choose for your room will depend on your sense of style, as well as your budget. You may need to reuse old pieces of furniture from your bedroom if money is tight. Or, if you have a large budget, then you might choose to replace your old furniture with new pieces. The most important thing is to choose pieces that work well with the design style of the space, as well as with each other. Of all the furniture that you invest in, the bed (and mattress) is the most important part. This is because, in any bedroom, the bed should always be the focal point. When it comes to choosing the perfect bed and mattress, it’s a good idea to read up using resources like the Tempur bed and mattress guide, for example. It’s also worth looking on sites like Pinterest for frame inspiration.

Last but not least, focus on the accessories for your bedroom. These are just as important as all of the other features when it comes to transforming a dreary space into a fabulous one. Take the design style of the room into account and pick out accessories that will enhance the space and make it look and feel more stylish. Think area rugs, bedding, cushions, wall art, lighting, mirrors, and ornaments. The more creative you can be with this, the better.
