Do you have the same bedspread, furniture, and accessories from your college apartment? Or maybe you’re just bored with your current decor and want something new. Redecorating your bedroom doesn’t need to a huge ordeal. All you need is a little inspiration and a Saturday afternoon to turn your bedroom from blah to “oo-la-la” with a quick bedroom makeover.
Make Your Bed
The best place to begin your quick bedroom makeover is the bed, of course! A new comforter set can instantly transform the style and color palette of a bedroom. Most people are tempted to run out and purchase a designer “bed in a bag” that includes a matching set of pillow cases, a comforter, and a bed skirt. While this is definitely quick, it is seldom cheap. There are no rules that state that everything in a bedroom must match, so if time is not a major factor, shop around for different components that complement one another to create a unique look.
A New Frame of Mind
Just as new pillows can refresh your bed, new frames can give your existing pictures a different perspective. Measure your photos and head to the clearance section of the craft store. Often an entire series of frames will go on sale at once and offer big savings. Another great source for frames is your local thrift store. It can be difficult to look past the unattractive artwork, but you’ll be removing that and the only thing remaining will be your “new to you” inexpensive frame. And you never know, you may even find a piece of artwork that you don’t think is cringeworthy, and chances are you’ll love the price!
Take A Stand
While you are in the thrift store, take a stroll through the furniture section. Replacing one or both of your nightstands with a vintage piece will change things up. And remember that the existing color or finish can always be changed for a fraction of what a new piece of furniture would cost. If you like the size and shape of your current nightstands, you can easily give them a facelift with a fresh coat of paint.
Clear the Air
Bring the outside in by adding houseplants to your bedroom decor. Not only are they a great way to add color and texture to your space, they also generate oxygen and clean the air. Consider the amount of natural light that filters in and how often the plants need to be watered to determine which varieties will work best for your space.
Lay Down the Rug
A properly-sized area rug can really tie a room together and actually make it look bigger, even over carpeting. Choose a soft texture that your feet will love hitting on a cold winter morning, and use it as another opportunity to add color and contrast to surrounding walls and decor.
