Decorate a bedroom, ideas to easily transform your room
Cleaning and decluttering are your first port of call before you decorate anything. Get rid of all of that junk that doesn’t suit the new fantasy bedroom you’ve been dreaming of. Allow space for the new you to develop in your favourite space!
Update Your Soft Furnishings
Quality linens are ideal for any master bedroom, they look and feel luxurious, no matter the style. What you need to remember is, the higher the thread count, the more durable it is (and nicer).
Curtains, cushions, blinds and bedding all play a key role when it comes to developing your home decor style.
Personally, I love a mismatched shabby chic style. Because I follow certain ground rules when choosing upholstery material, it why the room works.
- It must be pastel or complimentary
- Floral for the bedding as it is the focal point in my room (fancy bed)
- Keep walls in muted shades
Choosing a heavy material will mean that you can block most natural lighting. Blackout blinds and curtains are available to purchase, but heavy velvet curtains work just as well. The draperies should complement the bedding. When purchasing bedding, there are usually curtains to match.
Pro Tip: Get a double curtain pole to layer curtains with voile fabric. It creates a beautiful effect in the room.
Paint The Wall
Painting is one of the easiest ways to transform a room. It’s an incredibly simple and cost-effective approach to a bedroom transformation. Even if you want to create a focal wall, you can use wallpaper to compliment your chosen paint colours.
Hang Some Wallpaper
It’s easy to get bored with the same tired walls. Hang some new bedroom wallpaper to freshen up your walls or hang art prints. Finding ArtWork is incredibly easy. Etsy is my favourite place to find unique art in a huge range of styles.
Upgrade Your Lighting
This is another incredibly affordable way to instantly refresh a space. Lighting can help create an ambience that’s ideal for a good nights sleep, especially when it’s soft and indirect.
Adding a dimmer switch to ceiling lighting can also be quite effective in designing bedrooms for romance. If you struggle with getting to sleep at night, you may already know that you should avoid very bright lighting before bed. Soft bulbs are ideal.
Add A Little Luxe With Velvet
Keep comfort and your personal tastes in mind, and you should end up with your bedroom decorating project that’s jaw-droppingly beautiful and peaceful. I love velvet, it’s so luxurious and I would absolutely love to have this big luxurious throw on my bed.
Transforming your bedroom can happen within a day depending on the type of project you go for. If you prefer to keep your expenses down a bit, then you could go for the shabby chic approach. Focus on one bit at a time as you decorate. Have fun as you develop your own sense of style, mixed linens and art!
