Lighten Up!

When creating a comfortable and inviting feel in your bedroom, it’s important to lighten up the space. Dark colors can make a room seem closed off and small, while light ones will open it up and make you feel like you’re sleeping in a cloud. Choose white or light colors for the walls, flooring, and ceiling; and use darker colors for all other aspects of decorating.

Time for New Linens

New linens are the perfect way to spruce up a bedroom and make it feel fresh. Start with new sheets, pillows, and a comforter or bedspread in a color that matches your room’s décor. If you have a theme or style, stick with that theme when selecting your linens. Be sure also to change out your pillowcases. While you’re at it, investigate the purchase of a new shower curtain and rug as well.

Make Your Bed

This should go without saying, but making your bed in the morning is a great way to start your day. Making it a habit will make you feel more productive, but if you don’t have time to make it every morning, try making it when you get home from work or school. Ensure the sheets are tucked in tightly so they won’t come out of place during the night. This will also help prevent wrinkles on the mattress and help you get a better night’s sleep.

Declutter

A simple but effective way to spruce up your bedroom’s décor is by decluttering, which means removing items you no longer use and  or need. You should keep only the things that make sense for you, and your space will feel much more open and spacious once you remove unnecessary clutter. Be sure to drop off your items to be discarded with a local charity or thrift shop.

Add Photographs

Adding photographs is a great way to bring your bedroom together. They can serve as reminders of people you love or remind you of trips you’ve taken and places you’ve visited. Candid photos are always best, but if that’s not your style, there are many options for framed art prints. A great starting point for you would be to look for city or beach photography for sale.

Play With Color

A color is a powerful tool. It can be used to create focal points, warm up the space with different shades of red or orange, add energy with bright blues and greens, add personality with bold hues like pink and purple, add drama by using an entirely black background for a dramatic effect, or just make your bedroom fun.

Create a Focal Point

Creating a focal point in your bedroom can help keep the space from being too chaotic. A bold color, an unusual piece of furniture or artwork, or even a rug that stands out can make for a great focal point. A focal point can also be created by grouping two or more pieces of furniture together. This creates a built-in feature that adds visual interest to the room. Your focal point could either be very simple and straightforward or something that adds a touch of luxury.
