Monday, April 20, 2020

We spend about a third of our life in bed. Your bedroom is the first thing you see when you wake up in the morning. Are you looking to give your bedroom a new look to set the right mood?

Whether you need more space or just want a new look, take a look at these bedroom remodel ideas to help give your room a new life.

1. Add Some New Color

One of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to update a room is to add some new color. Painting your room only takes about a day or two to complete and you can give your bedroom a new look.

You also don't have to paint every wall. You can choose to do one accent wall, and you can use a bold, dark color.

If your room is large, you can select a dark, relaxing color such as teal or various shades of brown. For smaller rooms, you want to pick a light pastel or neutral.

2. Reorganize and Purge

Like most makeovers, one of the biggest steps is to get rid of stuff that clutters the area. You can give yourself so much more room if you sell or donate your unused items.

Go through your closet and make a pile of clothes and shoes to donate. You should also go through your linens at the same time.

Try adding some furniture in your closet to help you get more room. Use that valuable space on the floor to add a chest for linens or a shoe organizer.

Add multiple layers of shelves or add a second bar to give yourself more space to hang clothing.

Use bins to store clothing or towels under your bed. If you have a lot of books stacked in your room, consider a bookshelf. You can also add bins to unused shelves for more storage.

3. Update Your Lighting

Lighting is key in every room. It can set the tone, and you want your lighting to be relaxing in your bedroom.

Try switching it up a bit by replacing your bedside lamps with wall-mounted sconces. Look for a new ceiling light fixture that adds some elegance or a sophisticated look.

Another way to add some relaxation to your bedroom lighting is to add dimmers so you can soften your lighting.

You can also add track lighting that allows more flexibility. You can slide and adjust the lights as needed. They provide a modern look to any bedroom.

4. Look at the Floor

Your bedroom floor can add warmth and coziness to your room. You can choose to update the floor with new carpet, vinyl plank, hardwood, or ceramic tile, or you can just get a new large rug for a pop of color and design.

You want hard flooring if you live in areas with high moisture and humidity. Carpeting is much cozier on your bare feet.

To make hard floors less chilly, you can add radiant heat coils beneath to keep the floors cozy. Wider plank flooring adds a more dramatic look to any room.G

Updating your flooring can help set the tone for a relaxing evening in your room.

5. Get New Window Coverings

You can pull your bedroom together by adding some new window coverings. Bedrooms are usually smaller rooms in the house, and furniture takes up a lot of space. Your eyes are usually drawn upward, so this is why window coverings can make a dramatic impact.

White panel curtains are cheap and simple. They go with all styles. If you want to block out light, you can find darkening curtains with blackout backing. You don't have to select heavy dark colors in the front.

6. Buy New Bedding

Your bed is the focal point of your bedroom. By changing the bedding and adding some throw pillows, this small change can have a big impact. You can change the color scheme or style in your bedroom.

If you want a simple refresh, white bedding is a timeless classic that brightens up any room. You can also throw blankets on top to update the look in the winter.

You can also find a new pattern to inspire your other decorating ideas. You can get a bin beside your bed for your throw pillows, so they don't end up on the floor.

7. Repurpose or Update Your Bedroom Furniture

If you are on a budget, you don't have to buy all new furniture. You can paint all your wood furniture and add new hardware for a completely different loo. You can also reupholster any chairs for a different look.

Try updating the headboard of your bed. Remember the bed is the focal point of your bedroom, so try updating the headboard with a new look either with fabric or a mid-century modern, wooden headboard.

Check out local thrift stores or buy/sell sites if you want to save money on different pieces.

You can even throw a blanket or runner over any existing furniture for a new look.

8. Make a Sitting Area

Get a few chairs or even a small table to make a sitting area in your room. This gives your bedroom a multipurpose and gives you an area to relax and read.

If you don't have a lot of space, you can position a small bench in front of your bed. Add some pillows to make it more comfortable to relax. You can also use this bench for linen storage.

9. Get Professional Help

If you are looking for a larger-scale renovation, such as adding more space or a master bathroom, you will want to talk to a contractor or designer. By adding more space or a bathroom, you can get the bedroom you want.

First, you will need to establish your needs. What are you hoping to accomplish? Then you need to set your budget, which is vital to your renovation.
