It’s Time To Wake Up Your Bedroom

Wake up your bedrooms

After months of cold weather and being stuck indoors your bedroom (and other spaces) probably feel dreary.  It’s time for a change – and there are some simple but very effective ways to add a little pizazz to a bedroom. Whether it’s the master bedroom, your kid’s room or the guest bedroom, even a small change can make a refreshing difference.

Window Treatments

One of the most important features of any space is the lighting – especially natural lighting. However, a bedroom should have versatile window treatments – you should be able to darken the space – even on a sunny day. One easy option for accomplishing this is blinds. You can find blinds in a variety of colors and some are designed for light-filtering, others are for room-darkening. Another option is bamboo shades. The natural texture will filter light and add interest to your room.

Look Down

After you have the right window treatment you should take some time to evaluate the flooring. In some cases it may be necessary to mop and in others you might need to shampoo carpet. Regardless of the type of flooring you have you may want to consider the addition of a nice rug or two. They can be used to help carry-out a color scheme, but in addition, rugs add comfort and can even act as a sound barrier.

Storage Is A Must

Every room needs ample storage. Fortunately, there are lots of choices. You can use everything from plastic milk crates and storage bins to baskets, bookshelves and cabinets.

Color Matters

Color can add interest and it can help create ambiance. Since bedrooms are ‘private’ spaces they are the ideal place to experiment with colors. The sky really is the limit, so don’t be afraid to let your imagination run wild. Choose colors that you like and that make you feel good.  Of course, you may want to limit bold color choices to accessory items or maybe to an accent wall. But the reality is, you should have fun with colors.

There are easy ways to choose colors. For instance, you can decide on a mood you want to create – cool colors like blue and green create a relaxing and restful ambiance. On other hand, warm colors are considered more exciting. If you’re not sure what mood you want to create you might find it helpful to review home décor websites or magazines – when you see a room you like you can attempt to mimic the color scheme used.

Accessories Finish Things Off

We’ve all heard that it’s the little things that count – that is certainly true when it comes to the bedroom. For example, a few throw pillows add to your comfort and they can be used to add a pop of color or to pull together a color scheme. Having things like a , a clock and box of tissues near the bed  is not only convenient, it is essential. And while no kid’s bedroom is complete without toys, a bedroom intended for adults should also include some fun items to pass the time. A good book, some magazines, or a word puzzle can help you relax before drifting off to sleep.

Take a look around the bedrooms in your home. You might be able to make some big changes without spending a dime. How? Try borrowing items from one space to decorate another. Another option is using what you have in new ways. For instance, try using something different as a nightstand.  A bench or small bookshelf might be just the thing to give your space a new look. Use some of these ideas to wake up your bedrooms and start your spring out fresh!
