When it comes to interior design ideas, it is easy to get excited about redoing a living area or kitchen yet most people lose interest when it comes to the bedroom. However, it is possible to give your bedroom a completely new look with the minimum of effort and fuss. Simply using existing elements coupled with complementary bedding or creating a focal point in your bedroom can breathe new life into your boring boudoir. You don’t need to make significant structural changes to completely change the atmosphere and make your bedroom a place you can truly sit back and relax.
Before you do anything to the room, you should eliminate any clutter. You will be surprised at the immediate effect this has on the look of the room as a whole. Piles of clothes, handbags and other accessories are unsightly and immediately draw attention away from the rest of your room. Ensure all clothing, shoes and other items are stored away in the appropriate storage. This will give you an idea of what you have to work with, like a blank canvas.
If you are looking for a dramatic change, paint is the best way to achieve this. Ideally, bedroom colours should be relaxing and peaceful. Neutral colours such as white and beige or pastel colours, such as light blue, pink, green and yellow will offer a sophisticated look without making the room look small or dark.
Alternatively, you can mix bold and soft colours by painting one accent wall in a loud colour and complementing it with softer colours. The accent wall allows you to have the bold colour you like, while acting as a focal point for the room. A fancy headboard, an ornate centrepiece light fitting or fancy mirror will also act as your room’s focal point. If you don’t want to go as far as painting your walls, consider sprucing up old pieces of furniture by adding a lick of paint.
Updating the interior design of your bedroom can be as simple as changing your choice of bedding. Block coloured duvet cover sets, teamed with metallic shades will give your room depth and a touch of opulence. Alternatively, you can add an embroidered or patterned throw to the bed. Window dressing can also give an instant up-date to a bedroom; white curtains will suit all colour schemes and bedding.
