Your bedroom is arguably the single most important space in your home, while it’s also one of the most difficult to design and layout.
This is because the bedroom (in most cases, at least) needs to strike the delicate balance between being tranquil and chic, while remaining a sanctuary in what may be a busy and bustling home.
But what if your bedroom is tired and jaded? Here are some ideas to help you transform this space in the New Year!
#1. Invest in New Bedding
We’ll start with a relatively simple step, which will see you freshen up your bedroom with brand-new bedding.
This can be purchased relatively cheaply on or offline, while it enables you to refresh a tired colour scheme or breathe life into an existing palate.
You can also refresh your soft furnishings at the same time, introducing new cushions and pillows to introduce a combined sense of comfort and style.
#2. Create Your Own Built-in Wardrobe
As new-build homes and properties in general become increasingly small and compact, we’re seeing increasingly creative ways of optimising the space in your house.
One example of this is to build a DIY wardrobe in the alcove in your bedroom, through the simple addition of framing and doors. Of course, you’ll need to remove the carpet and baseboard moulding from above the alcove before getting started, while also cutting out top and bottom frames to secure your wardrobe.
You’ll also need a multitude of tools to bring this project to life, including versatile DeWalt multi tools that can cut skirting, fabrics and help prepare surfaces.
If you’re not confident in this respect, you can also hire firms that specialise in creating this type of wardrobe and invest in this as a viable home improvement.
#3. Display Pictures and Prints and Leverage Lighting
You can also refresh your bedroom with new pictures and images, including stylish prints and those that are deeply personal to you.
You can even create a feature picture wall to showcase these prints, using different-sized frames and multiple materials to create a unique visual experience.
Lighting is also important when refreshing a tired bedroom, so we’d recommend installing a mix of lamps and spotlights to create variable shades and levels of illumination.
You could also switch up your curtains on a seasonal basis, transitioning from dark, heavy and functional curtains during the cold weather months to lighter and brighter materials in the spring and summer.
