Given the fact that we all spend quite a lot of time in our bedrooms it is important to keep it looking as nice as possible. After all, you want it to be a comfortable space that you enjoy being in. Fortunately, as you will see, there are lots of quick and easy ways to freshen up your bedroom.
Update the wall art
Most of us have some type of painting or photo hanging over our beds, and sometimes on other walls too. Periodically updating these helps to keep the room up to date and will be a better reflection of your current tastes and interests.
Recently I ordered some canvas pictures for my bedroom. It was really easy to do, and I was pleasantly surprised by how affordable they were. Best of all I could use absolutely any image I wanted, which made it really easy to create the look I was aiming for.
Treat yourself to some new linen
It is always nice to sleep in good quality linen. Periodically buying new bedding sets is an excellent way to keep your bedroom looking modern. There is plenty of choices online and if you wait for the sales you need not pay a fortune for your linen.
Fortunately, bedrooms do not see a lot of foot traffic which means that you should not have to change your flooring very often. If you find yourself getting bored with your carpets you can simply buy a couple of rugs.
Update your window coverings
One part of the room a lot of people forget about is the windows. Changing your bedroom curtains can have a drastic impact on how nice the room looks.
When you choose new window coverings, bear in mind that they are not just there to look pretty. In a bedroom, they fulfill an important function, which is to keep the light out. It is very important that the curtains or blinds that you install are heavy enough to keep the light out. If they are not the chances are you will start to wake as the sun rises rather than being able to sleep until the alarm goes off.
Change the lighting
Most people give very little thought to how they light their bedrooms. They tend to choose a simple shade for the bulb above their bed and perhaps buy a couple of bedside lamps and leave it at that. This is a real shame because how you light a room has a big impact on how it feels, as well as on how practical it is.
For example, making the lights in your bedroom dimmable means that you can easily create a bright environment to read, work or exercise in. Then, when you want to create a more relaxing or romantic environment you just need to dim the lights.
