Ideally, bedrooms are the place you can go to escape the struggles of daily life—but creating a calm, relaxing atmosphere can take some planning. With these designer secrets, it’s easy to create a bedroom oasis that’ll feel like another world.
Revamping Bedroom Furniture
A bedroom makeover doesn’t have to require investing hundreds of dollars into a new set of bedroom furniture, though finding one or two smaller pieces can often help. If you’d rather highlight your existing furniture, painting the headboard or upgrading to new linens easily transforms a bed. And slipcovers aren’t just for sofas; they give night tables, dressers, and other bedroom furniture much-needed facelifts.
Neutrals seem boring, but some of the most serene bedrooms use muted color schemes, leaving plenty of room for smaller pops of color in curtains, throw pillows, and accessories. An additional benefit of muted color schemes is that they make it simple to change things up down the road.
With too many accessories, a bedroom feels cluttered; with too few, the room feels generic. A few key pieces to consider:
– Mirrors enhance lighting and make small bedrooms feel larger.
– Light fixtures showcase personal style.
– Photographs and artwork add personality and color.
– Books add class when stacked on bed tables or dressers.
All it takes is a few minor changes to turn your bedroom into an oasis—and who couldn’t use an excuse to spend more time in bed?
