Easy Ways to Make Over Your Bedroom

by Lisa Fitzgerald 03/11/2019

There's nothing more soothing than going back to relax in a beautiful space at the end of the day. Bedrooms have been known to look neutral. If you're willing to step out of that thinking and give your room a new look, here are some DIY bedroom makeover ideas you should try.

Use complimentary patterns

From your bedspreads to your pillowcases, and even the wall decor; playing with lovely patterns can bring out the beauty of your bedroom. More importantly, stick to one or two colors and merely work around their different shades and tones. For example, your walls could have splashes of sky blue, bedspreads with captivating cerulean stripes, and your lamp with a darker blue shade. However, you can use a refreshing combination of other colors too. Printed pillows with light colored bedding comes out beautifully. 

Have a rolling cart by the bedside

Instead of a fixed shelf with a lamp, alarm clock, and a couple of other items scattered around, a rolling cart with different shelves can give your room a different look. On the shelves, you can neatly place the things you'll often need to have handy. Of course, your alarm clock and lamp should be at the top.

Hang wall decor

Framed photographs, artworks, and murals can turn your 'ordinary' bedroom into that relaxation space of your dreams without costing you much. Depending on your taste, decorations can be hung stylishly above your bed as a headboard or even behind your dresser.

Install nightstand lamps

It is doubtful that anyone will find it pleasant and tranquil to relax in a room with piercingly bright light fixtures. Your walls should have a reflective tone, so use nightstand lamps for dim light.

Go green

Your room is no garden or lawn, but a few potted plants can be useful. Spider plants, for instance, help to filter the room’s air and generate more oxygen. This means you don't have to run out of breath. Fresh flowers will also add natural fragrances to aid your relaxation.Change your drapesYour windows don't need to have a boring view. Fresh curtains with colorful details can do the trick.

Rearrange your furniture

Personalizing your bedroom comes with making particular decisions to determine what's comfortable for you and how to get it done. There are tons of standard room arrangements out there with strict dos and don'ts. But nothing stops you from pulling your bed closer to the window or wherever else you want it. You're the pro here.

Keep these ideas in mind when shopping for a new home. Not every property will be staged to your liking, so ask your real estate agent to help you see the potential of the space.
