Your bedroom is a place to relax – and occasionally dress in. So, it’s important to have that at the heart of every decision you make in terms of how it is decorated.
Everything should feel luxurious and comfortable, so that you can get a decent night’s sleep and be a functioning human being in the morning.
If you are looking around your bedroom and thinking that you’re tired of the way it looks, or something feels stressful, take a look at our ideas to give your room an instant improvement.
Get your carpet cleaned
Do you ever look at your carpet and think, “I could have sworn that was white when I bought it”?
Or even, do you just notice that it is no longer showing the color you originally had. Maybe it’s now a shade of grey that you can’t explain. Where did it come from? There aren’t any shoes in here.
Unfortunately, any form of traffic is going to dull the color of your carpet over time, even if it is just you and your little piggies coming and going from other rooms in the house.
If this is the case, or if you’ve had an unfortunate incident with a glass of red wine or a mug of morning coffee, you might want to think about getting your carpet cleaned by a professional company. You can find one by visiting rhcarpetcleaning.ie.
Not only will your carpet feel better but imagine stepping out of the shower on a cold day to the newly softened fibers of your carpet again. Heaven.
Change your bedding and mattress
Changing your bedding can offer a visual upgrade but also a comfort upgrade. It’s amazing the difference having a heavier duvet or comforter on during the winter months can make.
No more shivering yourself to sleep, but instead you can turn the space heater off and know that the bed will quickly heat up with your body heat.
On the other hand, it’s a very cheap and quick way to redecorate. Your bed is the focal point of your bedroom, and if you change the duvet cover, you can try out new color schemes. If you have neutral walls, you can play around with colors and add something bold to the room. If you think it’s too much, switch it up.
In the meantime, get that mattress replaced. You are supposed to change your mattress every 6 to 8 years, so that decades old, bed bugged ridden mattress can’t be comfortable although there is the option of getting a bed bug proof mattress cover.
Upgrade your art
Beyond your bed, chances are your decorative efforts go into the wall behind your headboard. Your eyes will naturally travel to the space above the focal point, being the bed, so it makes sense to hang some art there.
This makes for another easy switch out if you are officially done with that countryside landscape you bought decades ago. You can change it to something more modern, something entirely different, something in a new color scheme, whatever you want.
Or you can even make that wall into an accent wall. Either option will make it look a lot less bare. You can add a bold color, some pattern, some nature, whatever keeps you calm in the moment.
