Humans spend 25 years of their life sleeping. That’s twenty-five years spent in our bedrooms! Here are a few easy ways to spruce up the room we spend so much time in.
Reupholster your headboard!
Whether you DIY or pay a professional, this is an easy update with a big impact! Use a patterned fabric as a focal point in the room or use a solid color that will add class and sophistication to your space. The choice is yours!
Adorn your wall
Sometimes all it takes is a piece of artwork or a new accessory to really transform a room. Mirrors are a great way to bounce light around the room, and there are so many options that can add a glamorous vibe to your space. A gallery wall or a large piece of artwork are also great options for adorning walls.
Add an accent wall
While painting one wall in a room is a popular choice, adding a more architectural accent has a certain unexpected extravagance. Plank walls are very popular right now and are easy to DIY. Other options are wainscoting or molding in a contrasting color to the walls. Even a mural would create a unique accent to a blank wall. The options are endless!
Update with an Area Rug
Area rugs are a great way to make a big update without updating the actual flooring. Swap them out seasonally or find the perfect year round area rug. Whether you are constantly updating or in for the long haul, area rugs are a great way to make a not so permanent change with a big impact.
Update your bedding
Whether you’re indulging in a higher thread count, changing up your color scheme or finally adding a canopy to your four-poster, switching up your bedding has the potential to instantly transform the whole room. You spend roughly a third of your life in bed, might as well love it, right?
Maybe you’re revamping your guest room, or maybe you have a recently empty nest. As the purpose of your room evolves, so can the bed arrangement. While some people may opt for a bigger bed, doubling up is a great way to prepare for future guests. Perhaps there are grandchildren in your future? Or maybe just some in-laws who like to visit for longer periods of time. More beds mean more options.
Do something crazy!
Bored with the same old look and feel? Looking for something new and exciting? Think out of the box. Display your hobbies in an interesting way, add a unique piece of furniture or an interesting light fixture. One crazy piece can make a brilliant focal point in a minimalist white bedroom. Let your creativity shine!
