They say the two most important rooms in your house are the kitchen and the bedroom. In the first, your family members spend most of their day, and in the second, the night. However, most of us have a soft spot for our bedroom and we tend to spend a lot of our time in it.
Being the most important item in your bedroom, the bed is the best place to start when making improvements. Look at the bedding, especially at the colors. Are they dull? Or, if they’re lively, do they even match?
Whatever the case may be, instantly breathe life into your bedroom by throwing a classic duvet cover onto the bed. In particular, go for bold colors or floral prints and soft, comfortable textures. And don’t stop there. Also, throw in matching pillows.
Even the best bed makeover is incomplete without adequate lighting. Well-chosen lights complement and highlight any feature in the bedroom. For instance, choose tall lights to match your high ceiling or spotlights to illuminate a special feature, such as artwork.
Find a good spot to hang a cheap canvas print or, if you’re the adventurous type, even a tapestry. But as you do, remember to match the artwork’s color scheme with that of the room.
Artwork alone is insufficient to brighten up the walls, especially during the day. So, throw in some mirrors as well. These reflect the light getting into the room onto other surfaces, making your bedroom brighter, larger, and airier.
To complete your bedroom makeover, bring the outside in using bright houseplants. Besides making your room more vibrant, plants also purify the air. Better still, they’re easy to maintain and don’t take up much space.
