Sometimes it’s nice to indulge ourselves, and when it comes to our homes, the bedroom is the one place you can really enjoy the indulgence. This is the room that is solely yours or maybe shared with a partner, but you sleep there every night. In theory, we spend more time in our bedrooms than we do anywhere else in our home, but yet it is very low on the redecorating priority list. So I thought now is the perfect time to share with you a helpful guide on how you can overhaul your bedroom.
Make sure the bedroom is clutter free
A great first step in any redecorating project is to begin the decluttering process. Your bedroom, especially, can be a place where clutter can gather without you even realising. This might be because you don’t have enough storage, or simply the item has nowhere else to go. Decluttering your bedroom could make it feel bigger overall, and helps you to understand what you have to work with. Often clutter can make a DIY project feel worse in some way.
Treat yourself to some new bedroom furniture
New bedroom furniture is an indulgence we often don’t treat ourselves to too often. So if you are planning on overhauling your bedroom, you may as well go all out and invest in some new key pieces. It might be just the bed and mattress you focus on, or perhaps new wardrobes that could help you create more storage. Go on, treat yourself.
Stick with a colour choice that you are happy with
Colours are so important in a bedroom. While you want to ensure that your personality shines through, it’s also worth remembering that this room needs to be a calming place, so that you are still able to get a good night’s sleep. Some colours are worth staying away from as there are even studies to suggest that they don’t benefit you when it comes to sleeping. I think a pastel shade or something neutral will always work well and stand the test of time.
Create new and unique features
One of the great things you could consider would be to create new and unique features to your bedroom. It might be a seat, or creating a window seat that you could read from. A carpenter could create a great frame, foam for comfort and material to match your new theme. You can see here for more information about where you can get some inspiration.
Scented candles can work well in a bedroom space
Scented candles are definitely an indulgence we can take advantage of in our bedrooms. Not only can we use particular scents to create a calming ambiance, but they also look amazing. Some people opt for some of the heavy duty glass jar candles, which not only look good but stand the test of time.
Invest in things like lighting and flooring
Finally, spare a thought to how well the lighting is in your bedroom and what you walk on. Flooring and light fixtures are key for completing any bedroom overhaul. Investing in new carpets or wooden flooring can change a room completely while adding more light can give the element of space.
I hope this guide helps you makeover your bedroom soon.
