You deserve a bedroom that’s an oasis. Whether you just moved into a new place or you’re tired of your outdated look, an aesthetically pleasing bedroom is key to creating a relaxing environment. Luckily, you don’t have to spend massive amounts of money to transform your space. We put together a list of 7 ways to upgrade your bedroom.

Switch Up Your Wall Color.

Your bedroom should be a quiet place to rest your head and escape. Choose a paint shade with calming hues to create a tranquil space to wake up to in the morning. Avoid harsh colors like red, orange, yellow, and lime green. We recommend white or beige tones for a simple, yet refreshing look. Cool grays and sky blues are great to create a peaceful yet elegant look. For a professional-looking paint job, you need to do exactly what the experts do.

Incorporate Wallpaper.

If you’re looking to make a statement in your bedroom, we recommend wallpaper. This way if you change your mind, it is an easy fix. You’ll also never have to worry about wallpaper going out of style. Wallpaper can be a little intimidating to install, especially without a professional. If this is your first time installing wallpaper, consider starting with an accent wall.

Perfect the Lighting.

Between all the rooms in your home, your bedroom is most likely the only one you spend time in when it’s completely dark and completely bright. Your bedroom lighting design is essential to ensure it is a comfortable place to unwind. Plus, nothing is worse than fluorescent lighting. The key to finding the best lighting for your bedroom is to know how to layer your lighting. Find a balance between ambient, task, and accent lighting. Ambient lighting is typically soft and sets the tone for your space. Task lighting is your direct, intense lighting detailed work like reading or writing. Accent lighting is usually brighter than ambient, but less direct than task lighting. Accent lighting draws attention to a feature. If you can create this balance, you will be able to give your bedroom the upgrade it deserves.

Add Crown Molding.

It’s all about the details! Dramatically alter your bedroom design and bridge the gap between your walls and ceiling by installing trim or crown molding. Even adding a simple 6-inch border of crown molding at the top of your walls will make your bedroom appear significantly more elegant. We recommend discussing with a professional before getting started, choosing the right molding is crucial to the outcome.

Ditch the Blinds.

It’s no secret that blinds aren’t very attractive. Consider hanging curtains to add a little bit more character to your bedroom. Whether you take down the blinds or add curtains on top is up to you.

Reposition Artwork.

A simple way to refresh the look of your bedroom is to rearrange or replace your artwork. When you hang numerous pieces of art together, visual balance is essential. We know how stressful arranging artwork can be. Save yourself the frustration of hanging and rehanging a group of art by tracing each piece of art on Kraft paper. Avoid covering your wall with holes, use painter’s tape to play around with the placements. 

Rearrange Furniture.

You’d be surprised just how different your room can look with a slightly different furniture arrangement. Move your bed or dresser to another wall. You may even discover a whole new area of space you didn’t know you had before.
