Give Your Bedroom a Mini Makeover With These Tips

December 18, 2014 Comments Off on Give Your Bedroom a Mini Makeover With These Tips

A mini makeover of your bedroom can help you to wake up feeling rejuvenated. When you don’t have the time to completely redesign your existing bedroom space, a mini makeover is just the ticket. Check out some of these simple ideas to breathe new life into your bedroom.

Bring In Some New Furnishings

If your bedroom is full of mismatched furniture you have accumulated over the years, it’s time for some symmetry. Adding a chest of drawers, bedside tables or a dresser in the same colour as your bed frame transforms the appearance of your bedroom. Pick out the colour or material you want to carry throughout the bedroom and start looking for some small pieces to match it. Somewhere like Super A-Mart Australia stocks all types of timber and metal furnishings, so check out a few different styles before making your decision.

Add Some Colourful Manchester

Making over your bedroom can be done quickly and reasonably cheaply by changing your manchester (bed linen). The colours you use will depend on the shade of your bedroom paint, but don’t feel they have to match exactly. Colours like blue and green are perfect shades for the bedroom. If you would rather not spend a lot of money on a complete new set of linen, buy a few key pieces such as colourful cushions or a textured throw for the foot of the bed.

Add Some Artwork

The size of the piece is going to depend on the shape and size of your bedroom. If you have a big blank wall at the head of the bed, this is a great spot for hanging a big canvas or a framed picture. Whatever medium you choose for the bedroom, try to pick a colour out of the artwork to match another piece in the room. A beautiful black and white photo canvas can be integrated easily, while a large picture with a gold frame will dominate the room. Play around with a few ideas and make sure to hang the item straight. Use a spirit level to check.

Brighten Up Your Room

If you are lucky enough to have natural light available, use this to brighten up your bedroom. On dark days or for bedrooms shielded from the sun, incorporating a lamp into the design of your bedroom is the best solution. If you already have a lamp, you can update it by changing the shade to one in a new colour, size or texture. You can also play around with light bulbs of different wattages. A lighting store can recommend the best style bulbs and wattage for your lamp.

Hang Some Sheer Curtains

If you don’t want to lose the view out of your window but you need a little privacy, take a look at some sheer or lightweight curtains. There are many styles available in a range of thicknesses and colours, which can be purchased in most standard lengths. These curtains not only add colour to the bedroom, but the difference in texture makes them a unique feature and adds a sense of luxury thanks to the sheen of the fabric.
