Whether you’re working, running around after the kids, or dealing with the household bills, you’ll undoubtedly suffer from stress in your life. For this reason, it’s important that your bedroom is a relaxing retreat and a place where you can switch off from the rest of the world. Thankfully, it’s easy to convert your bedroom from a functional space to a zen-like sanctuary without spending a fortune. With the help of the tips and tricks below, you can transform a bedroom makeover in as little as a few hours.
#1 Clean up your clutter
To transform your bedroom, you’ll need to get rid of your clutter. Not only will decluttering make your room look better, but it will also have a great psychological benefit. After all, according to Psychology Today, decluttering can improve your mental well-being, change your eating habits, and make your thinking more efficient. So, rid your bedroom of all those unused receipts, stash away the half-used make-up and pick all of your dirty clothes. Not only will your room look bigger and cleaner, but your mental health will improve, too.
#2 Add bedside tables for a focal point
Changing your bed can be a costly exercise, but you can add a pair of bedside tables relatively cheaply. Not only will these new pieces of furniture provide you with extra storage (which can help with decluttering), but they can also be used to add a sense of style or create a focal point.
When taking a look at this range of bedside tables from vidaXL, for example, you can see how easy it is to play around with the design of your room. You could choose a table that matches your bed perfectly, or pick a stylistic counterpoint that draws your focus and makes it look like you’ve had a complete makeover.
#3 Create tranquillity with plants and flowers
Plants and flowers serve a dual purpose in your bedroom. Not only do they look great and add a touch of color, but they also supply oxygen and naturally purify the air around you.
According to Good Housekeeping, snake plants and rubber plants are both great options. However, before you choose your perfect plant, you’ll also need to consider the amount of natural light you get in your bedroom and how much maintenance you’re willing to do. If you don’t trust yourself to keep up with the maintenance, add a fresh bunch of flowers instead and swap them weekly.
#4 Get fresh bedding
Although the amount of sleep we need varies from person to person, the vast majority of us spend between seven and nine hours in bed each night. However, despite this, we often overlook the importance of our bedding and leave it for several years without replacing it.
Due to the amount of time we spend in bed, it’s easy for quilts, pillows, and duvets to become worn and far less comfortable. As a result, by spending a little on new bedding sets and quilts, you’ll feel like you’re sleeping in a completely different bed.
If you feel like making an additional splurge, you can even add a memory foam mattress topper. Alternatively, if money is tight, add a few accent pillows to convey a sense of comfort. A mixture of square, round, or bolster pillows will easily create the desired effect.
Follow these top tips for a bedroom makeover, and you’ll have no problem converting your existing bedroom into your favorite room in the house. The only downside is that you’ll find peeling yourself out of bed in the morning even more difficult than usual.
