Simple Tips for Updating
Your Bedroom Design
From color schemes and comforters to wall paint and curtains, updating your bedroom is a great way to spruce it up for the New Year. Pack away the fancy drinkware and holiday decorations in your living room, and spend some time showing your bedroom a little TLC. Here are a few simple tips to update your bedroom without spending too much time or money.
Freshen the Color
You might not have the time or energy to repaint the entire room, but that's okay. Add new accent colors to the mix in the form of pillows and throws, lampshades, and bedskirts. Make it fresh and bright, and find a nice color that goes well with the wall paint and bedspread.
Organize Your Clutter
Home accessories can be useful as well as decorative. Figure out what gets cluttered around your home and find a decorative yet practical solution. Organize your bookshelves and end tables, and make sure everything in your bedroom has a home. You'll be surprised how much nicer a clean and organized bedroom feels.
Easy Large Artwork
Whether this is a paint-splattered canvas or a lace-stenciled piece of wood or glass, a large accent item over a dresser or headboard can breathe a lot of life into a drab room. Pair it with a textured area rug and you'll feel like you're in a new room already.
Give Your Furniture a Little TLC
Maybe it's time to refinish that large oak dresser, or dress it up with a little wallpaper. Or how about fixing up your headboard and reupholstering a few chairs? Check out the quick tips for putting new handles on your cabinets and drawers. It's not that hard to make minor upgrades to your furniture, but they can make a big difference to the whole picture.
Change out some of the old holiday and wedding photos for newer or different pictures. Maybe frame the kids' artwork or some beautiful cards. You can even make photo collages of all sizes for various frames using simple online programs. No matter how much you love an old picture, adding a few new ones can make a nice change.
