Your bedroom should be a place of solace, somewhere that draws you in because of how welcoming and relaxing it is. In order to maintain that fresh, relaxing atmosphere, you need to give your room an occasional update. It is recommended by interior designers to update your bedroom every three to four years. Total remodels are not necessary, but small changes can help your bedroom maintain an uplifting, inviting ambiance. We’ve included some basic tips to revamp your bedroom.
De-Clutter and Organize
The first step to refreshing a room is to get rid of what you no longer need and to organize everything you keep. When you lay down in your bed and look around your room, you want to feel relaxed. You will only feel stress if you see clutter in corners and unused items scattered on dressers and tables. Throw away, recycle, or donate the item you no longer use.
After de-cluttering, organize everything in your room! Purchase storage items that are quality and match your taste so they can be used for years to come. Keep items that aren’t pleasing to the eye out of sight in drawer or basket storage while leaving those beautiful books, blankets, or décor items on display! A clean, uncluttered room can go a long way!
Fresh Coat of Paint
Paint should be refreshed every couple of years and can easily revamp a room by itself. Certain colors become dated as trends pass, and your tastes will change as your personal design style matures. Pick soft colors that make you feel relaxed-calm neutrals or light shades of colors often found in nature. Don’t be afraid to add a pop of personality with an accent wall or patterned wallpaper.
Décor has the power to take a room to the next level. Make it personal and pick items that really match your style and make you feel at home. Switch your light to a statement fixture. Hang some décor such as a large mirror or piece of art on the wall. Get a new conversation-starter rug. Place houseplants or fresh flower bouquets on the nightstand. The possibilities are truly endless.
The central part of your bedroom is naturally going to be your bed, so make it look and treat you great! Start with fresh, clean sheets. Buy a quality set like our Simply Organic Bamboo sheets which will outlast your standard cotton sheets and maintain their softness and integrity for years to come. Top those sheets off with a new plush comforter or duvet and some inviting throw pillows!
Giving your bedroom a facelift can be as simple or extreme as you want. Whether you’re rearranging furniture and tidying up or purchasing an entire bedroom set, make your personal tastes and comfort your goal. When you open your eyes in the morning, you want to find yourself in the relaxing oasis that is truly your own, even if it does make leaving your bed that much more difficult.
