Are you avoiding your bedroom until you simply have to go to sleep because it is chaotic and in need of an overhaul? If your answer is yes, then our 6 bedroom décor revamp steps will guide you to create a bedroom fit for relaxation and enjoyment.
Step 1: Inspiration and Decisions
As in any spatial revamp, the first step is to decide what you want the space to look like. Look for inspiration online or flip through décor magazines. Do you want a minimalist space or lots of colour? Millions of images are available online (and magazines) so it can be a little over-whelming if you don’t create a mood board of sorts to keep you on track.
Step 2: Paint Your Room
After deciding the basics about your room and if you can afford to, I would suggest painting your bedroom. There is nothing quite like a fresh coat of paint. Choose a colour that matches the mood you want to create in your bedroom; calm and soothing or bright and energetic.
Step 3: Invest in Bedding & Fabrics
Good bedding and gorgeous fabrics enhance the mood of any space, and the bedroom is no exception. It may cost a bit at first but soft linen is the ultimate spoil in a bedroom. This extends to the fabric you choose for your curtains, furniture and cushions. Use fabrics to add texture and design elements to your space.
Step 4: Window Treatments
If you are looking to create a modern look for your bedroom, perhaps shutters or blinds might be the way to go for your window treatments. These can be on the expensive side so if your budget doesn’t allow for them, go for the tried and tested curtains. With the endless options of fabric and patterns available, you won’t want for choice. Nowadays there are so many ready-to-hang options available too. When making your choice, consider options that can be easily cleaned.
Step 5: Appropriate Lighting
Appropriate lighting is so important in a bedroom. If you need bright lighting for your dressing area, ensure that it comes with a dimmer. Well-positioned lamps for reading can be placed on side tables to add ambience to your space. If space is a concern, opt for wall-mounted lighting.
Step 6: Finishing Touches
The fun part of a bedroom revamp is adding the finishing touches. Add décor items that will enhance your space such as artwork, ceramics, plants or photo frames. A nice rug may also be a nice touch especially if you have tiled floors and want a cosy space. Don’t get too carried away though as you could land up cluttering your beautiful new space.
