The bedroom is a reflection of your personality and a place of comfort and relaxation. However, it’s often the last place that we choose to invest in when decorating our homes. Adding a fresh atmosphere to the bedroom doesn’t need to be expensive.
There are a few simple ways to transform your bedroom into a place where you look forward to spending time.
Change the pillows and bedding
The bed is the centrepiece of the room and it’s important to make it comfortable and attractive if you want to fully enjoy it. While you can always invest in a fancy headboard, you can also replace the pillowcases, add new cushions and put on new bedding. There’s little as satisfying as crisp linen and coordinating cushions.
Add new lighting
Lighting plays an important role in setting a relaxing mood and atmosphere. Small changes such as buying a new lampshade or replacing light bulbs and adding dimmers for a different level of light can make a big difference. A little bit of light can go a long way.
Rearrange the layout
There’s a saying that a haircut is as good as a holiday. In the same breath, rearranging the layout of a room can be as good as a renovation. Move the furniture around to different positions in the room and enjoy the fresh change that it adds to the space. Use the opportunity to declutter the bedroom and donate, store or sell unused belongings.
Add a touch of paint
Sometimes, all that’s needed is a new coat of paint to bring a bedroom’s aesthetics to life. Choose the same tone as your current walls and touch up any marks or be bold and pick a completely different colour.
Include some greenery
Go green and add a bit of shrubbery into your bedroom and watch it come alive. Not only do plants add a pop of colour, but they also introduce a burst of energy. If your bedroom gets a lot of sunlight, then you can choose a Wild Banana plant and if your room is mostly in the shade, then you can get a few cactus plants.
If you need to open up space in your bedroom but you’re not willing to give up all of your belongings, then self storage is an affordable and convenient solution. Declutter your bedroom and store seasonal clothing, old furniture and hobby equipment in a safe and secure storage unit of your choice of size. Contact us at 0800 0852 954 for more information.
