The bedroom is the one place we always think about decorating, but we never get to it. Unlike the kitchen or the living room, no one other than your family is ever likely to see it. The bedroom is also that one room in the house you can decorate however you want, no peer pressure involved. We want to be comfortable in our bedrooms. In order to achieve that, our most personal room must also be visually appealing. Here is a list of simple tricks that can make your bedroom look and feel more comfortable:
Add More Pillows
Forget the living room couch, the bedroom is the place where you should go overboard with pillows and cushions. So, don’t hesitate to pile up the pillows on your bed and couch or chair (if you have one in your bedroom). Choose groovy pillow cases to make things interesting. You can choose kooky cushions— like eye-shaped or dino-shaped ones—to make your bed look even more inviting for a comfy shuteye.
Paint Linoleum Floors
If you have linoleum floors in your bedroom, you can paint them to make them look like real flooring. You can repaint neutral linoleum floors in an eye-popping colour. You can also paint medallion patterns on your linoleum bedroom floor to make it look like you are living in a mansion! Of course, this level of painting would require some skill.
Add a String of Fairy Lights around the Mirror
You know how those wall mirrors in period movies about showbiz have strings of lights around them? You can give your bedroom a bit of a flapper look by hanging up a string of fairy lights around the mirror. It would look gorgeous in the evenings, as if you are living in a perpetual Christmas time. Also, if you have dim room lights, the fairy bulbs would actually help you see better.
Wall stickers are now what wallpapers were in the eighties and the nineties. You may be familiar with wall stickers as those glow-in-the-dark stars your mom helped you paste on the ceiling. Nowadays, wall stickers provide budget users a way to make rooms look hip for cheap. Decorative stickers can give walls, furniture, and even floors stylish patterns for less than twenty bucks. If you have boring, bare walls, use stickers to make your overall bedroom look luxurious without actually spending the money. You can even get a wall sticker clock for a decoration that adds functionality to the room.
Hang Up a Mini Chandelier
A large chandelier would not fit in your bedroom, unless you are a Dowager Countess. Instead, get a much smaller mini chandelier to make your bedroom look chic and expensive. Mini chandeliers cost only a fraction of what actual chandeliers cost.
Use Pattern Bedspreads
Liven up your bedroom by ditching the mono-colour bedspreads for ones with exquisite patterns. You don’t need any more decorations when you have patterned bed spreads.
Hang Up Artwork
Don’t hesitate to hang up artwork of your choice to add colour and style to your bedroom. Artwork is also a good tactic to passively counter neutral coloured walls and flooring.
Additionally, you can put an exotic-looking rug on the floor. These are all very simple ideas that will cost little or no money. So, don’t wait to use one of the above suggestions to make your bedroom look breathtaking.
