How to Make Your Old Bedroom Look New Again
Since your bedroom is the place you relax after a long day, it is very important that you give it the care it needs. You want to have a balance between making it comfortable while also making it a place that is easy on the eye.
Even with a low profile design, there are still many things you can do to give your bedroom a refreshing look. Just like anything treated to designing, when it comes to the bedroom, less is more. You don’t want to try so many ideas that the place ends up looking messy.
Here are some of the ways you can make your bedroom look new again:
- Have only one focal point
Trying to execute too many ideas in your bedroom will only leave it looking cluttered. To avoid this, you should choose a single feature that will be the focal point of the room. For example, you can decide to have a textured wall on the side of the bed head and then add some unique lighting on it.
- Find the best color for the walls
Having a bedroom colored with the most appropriate color is a great way to create a calming effect on anyone who enters the room. You can try soothing colors such as brown, light gray, cream and beige. If you want to enhance the look, you can add something like pastel blue, yellow, gold or green. Strong primary colors can be too loud and should be avoided.
- Dress your windows
Window curtains are not just for blocking light from entering into a room. They are great when it comes to adding an element of elegance or drama to a room. As long as you are creative enough, you can use them to add some oomph to your bedroom.
- Add a soft carpet
This is a great way to inject a luxurious feel to your bedroom. Carpets are inviting because they make the bedroom look warm and cozy. At the same time, they help soothe your feet after a long day. If it’s a tiled or timber floor, a soft rug will be enough to add some class to the room.
- Choose a good frame for your bed
Framing your bed with an elegant bed frame is a great way to make a statement. Even an old bed can suddenly look amazing if you just add the perfect bed frame. Whichever color you choose, make sure it doesn’t clash with other colors in the room.
This is the bed frame I got for our bedroom last year. We love it! It’s perfect for storage, and I love what’s it has done for the decor in my bedroom too!
- Minimize the clutter
A messy bedroom can be very off-putting. The best way to avoid it is to have a specific place to put everything that you use in the bedroom. Things like toy boxes and laundry baskets are very important to have. Also, make sure you make your bed every morning before you do anything else.
- Choose the right furniture pieces
When purchasing furniture, you should be careful to pick the right sizes that would look perfect for your bedroom. If a bed is too large, it will make everything look out of proportion. It will also limit movement around the room.
Making your bedroom look new again doesn’t have to be difficult. It’s all about being creative and finding ideas that will work specifically for your situation. As long as you don’t overdo things, you have every chance to have a space you can be proud of.
