Your bedroom may seem like the least important room to decorate in your house. After all, you spend most of your time in there with your eyes closed.
But the bedroom is where you start your day and end it, where you recharge, refresh, and renew. This spring, refresh your bedroom with these seven easy, lovely decorating tricks. Your bedroom will never feel more lovely.
1. Bring in Fresh Blooms
Nothing freshens up a room more easily than fresh flowers. Choose a simple vessel such as glass or porcelain, for a refreshing feel. To keep costs low, go for a single type of flower and lots of complementary greenery.
2. Improve the View
It’s tempting to skip window treatments in the bedroom. But even a few panels of curtains can transform the mood of a room. Try a gauzy white curtain for a secluded window, or a set of blackout panels if you’re a sensitive sleeper.
3. Give Yourself Some Space
If you have a couch or dresser at the foot of your bed, try reversing the flow. Pull your bed out from the wall, place a divider behind it, and create your sitting or dressing space there. You’ll be amazed at how much more spacious and tranquil your bedroom will feel once those busy areas are out of sight.
4. Find a New Hue
A quick coat of paint can refresh and finish a dull, white room. Try a dark tone, such as teal, for a bedroom that revives in the morning and soothes at night.
5. Show Your Art Appreciation
Liven up tired walls by hanging a piece of precious art. Check thrift stores, flea markets, and attics for one-of-a-kind finds.
6. Pick a Palette That Soothes
Jumbles of bright colors are stimulating. But in the bedroom, that can translate as irritating. For a soothing setting, choose muted colors, and stick to a limited palette.
7. When in Doubt, Subtract
Layering is fine in the living room. But a bedroom is for rest and relaxation. Instead of adding items to your bedroom décor, try subtracting for a clean, fresh feel.
