There are plenty of ways you can improve the look of your bedroom and give it a new lease on life! In the following short guide, we’ll look at how this can be done.
Firstly, you should ask yourself, what furniture you’d like to have replaced. What about the bed? Replacement options include single, twin, double, king and queen beds. For a more luxurious feel, you may wish to have your new bed fitted atop a platform or you might want to purchase a folding bed to save on space.
Another way to create a more spacious bedroom is by having fitted wardrobes installed. As opposed to freestanding wardrobes, this type is built into the walls. They do tend to be more expensive and they cannot be moved from room to room but a fitted wardrobe is a high quality choice and if you avail of an option with sliding doors, you can reduce space usage even more!
How about the flooring? Upgrading the design and material of your floor can go a long way to recreating your bedroom entirely. Popular flooring options for a bedroom include carpet, laminate, timber, vinyl and parquet. It’s important that you weigh up considerations of each type whether it is the aesthetic value of a laminate floor, the durability of carpet flooring or parquet flooring prices. Each material has its own pros and cons and the best option for you will depend on your personal preferences, budget and requirements.
When it comes to lighting, a bedroom should have three light sources, namely, general (e.g. ceiling-mounted light, wall-mounted light), task (e.g. pendant light) and accent (i.e. wall sconces or recessed lighting). You should also consider dimmer or/and colour adjustable lights as with these it’s easier to set the lighting such that it matches the mood and time of day.
Don’t forget about the walls and ceiling! It is generally best to have walls painted/wallpapered with light tones in a bedroom whether it is pale blue, light green or lavender. Liner, vinyl, printed, foil and bamboo wallpaper are among some of the most suitable types for a bedroom. Repainting your ceiling should not be overlooked. A ceiling, after all, is often described as the fifth wall of a room.
As this article has shown, there are many ways you enhance the look and feel of your bedroom. Take your time weighing up the options and take into consideration your budget, preferences and requirements before planning out how you want your bedroom to be redesigned!
