Simple Design Tricks For A Bedroom Makeover

If your bedroom is looking for a little springtime refresh, we offer three simple tweaks to transform your bedroom from blah to stunning in an instant!


Your bedroom may offer a respite for your weary mind and body, but that doesn’t mean your bedroom aesthetic needs to feel tired too! Your sleeptime sanctuary should be a personal haven that feels equal parts comfy and stylish. If your bedroom is looking for a little springtime refresh, we offer three simple decorating tweaks that will make your bedroom go from feeling blah to stunning in an instant! These small changes offer great style impact so you don’t have to dream up a completely new bedroom look.


Change Out Boring Lighting With A Showstopper

A simple switch out of boring, standard light fixtures can majorly transform the overall ambiance in a room. From general, task, and accent lighting, the virtues of stylish light fixtures can not be overstated. Lighting sets the tone and atmosphere in a space, so fixtures shouldn’t simply be considered a functional element. Bringing in distinctive light fixtures works to play up the design features in a room, fostering a well-designed, coordinated bedroom look. Bedside table lamps are the easiest way to incorporate stunning lights into your bedroom scheme. A bold lamp base or lampshade can add new charm to your bedroom decor. If you’re looking to inject a true sense of daring into your bedroom aesthetic, however, look to showstopping overhead lighting. Instead of discrete flush mount lighting, chandeliers and pendants usher in a sense of grandeur befitting a luxurious sanctuary. It adds a visual punctuation to a room that packs a powerful illuminating punch.    


Decorate The Foot Of Your Bed


Whether you decide to bring in some much-needed storage or seating to your bedroom, take full advantage of the empty space at the foot of your bed. This often overlooked spot is usually left bare, but offers countless opportunities to make a stylish statement that can instantly dress up your bedroom space. We love the idea of adding functional seating to a bedroom, and there are plenty of ways to bring in multipurpose seating no matter what size bedroom you’re blessed with. The easiest way is the addition of a one-stop, all-purpose bench at the foot of your bed which provides plenty of versatility for storage and seating. It can provide a convenient place to set down personal items from clothing, reading materials, and extra linens, to offering a casual perch where visitors can sit. Opt for a small loveseat for a sumptuous seating upgrade; or get creative with a pair of stools which can be moved any place. A pair of stools is the perfect solution for small area spaces, pulling double-duty function by offering an extra surface or seating in AND out of your bedroom.   


Area Rugs Are A Must

Perhaps the quickest way to a bedroom transformation is laying down an ultra stylish area rug by your bed. Not only does it usher in an irresistible cozy aesthetic, a rug adds warmth and softness to bare floors. A carpeted room doesn’t mean your bedroom can’t benefit from the addition of an area rug either. Rugs are a crucial design element that adds personality to your floors by way of texture, pattern, and color. No matter the area or layout of your bedroom, a rug can instantly freshen up your bedroom aesthetic. Conventional wisdom suggests that a large area rug is your best design bet to frame a bed, but small area rugs can also work design wonders to bring statement making style to your bedroom. Consider placing a long runner rug at the foot of your bed for a bold, yet balanced pop of color. A petite rug that measures 2x3 can also work to bring a burst of personality into your bedroom. Flank them on either side of your bed to offer a comfy spot to lay your feet when you wake in the morning.
