You spend a third of your life sleeping, so why spend it in an uninvested room? Here are easy ways you can upgrade your bedroom without having to look flashy or overpriced.
A Lick of Paint
Sometimes all you need is a coat of paint to make a dramatic difference to your home. If you are surrounded by perfectly white walls, then why not add some color to the room with a striking wall? Striking walls are a timeless way to elevate the architecture in any room, and if you’re feeling a bit adventurous, why not try some textures? Try with complimentary colors, such as gray, blue, and cream, as they have a calming effect and help you fall asleep. The great thing about painting an accent wall is that you can bring more color to your room without making it look like a sore thumb. Painting your walls a new color is the perfect excuse to upgrade your bed frame; A little luxury can go a long way!
Stay with the old, come out with the new
Sometimes all you need to do to upgrade your bedroom is move some stuff around. Here are some great tips from Trevor Mortonan interior designer with Awesome Handyman to redesign your bedroom without buying anything new. “Upgrading a bedroom can sometimes be as easy as repositioning your bed. If you have an east-facing window, you can place your bed across from it so that the rising sun can wake you up in the morning instead of the annoying alarm clock. Besides, getting rid of useless furniture, in my opinion, is the right thing to do. No one likes that cramped feeling and it can even affect your sleep. Less surface also means less clutter. Also, hanging some tapestries on the wall can make the room feel really cozy. Plants are also of great help in that regard. This fits pretty much any room, but. Hide those ropes! Power cables don’t take up much space, but being hidden from view will make the room seem a lot more organized.” Learn more about Fantastic Handyman by following them on Facebook.

Research is your new best friend; Tania Wilson from Tania Louise tell us why. “Research your favorite style first. Use Pinterest and build a collection of styles that catch your eye. After a while, you can pick out the elements that appeal to you in each image. Choose your main furniture, bed and side table/storage in an adjustable style to match different color schemes. For example. White/cream or natural wood furniture. Choose a window covering, for example. Curtains and shutters complement your interior style. These items will be your permanent items. Then, choose curtains, lamps, and nightstands that match your current mood or style.” Learn more about Tania Louise by following them on Facebook and Instagram.
Trends come and go, but comfort is forever. When you are choosing your finishes, always make sure that your furniture is good enough to eat in and also good enough to sit on for hours. The bedroom furniture isn’t just a bed, it’s a comfy chair (which you know turns into a clothes dryer in two weeks – don’t deny it). If you have a light-colored wall or light-colored bed sheet, why not add fun and interesting pieces of furniture to the combination? Ben and Simone Mathews from BAM Construction has the perfect advice for those who are looking for the finishing touches to their bedroom but want to keep it trendy. “Always stick to your own style, trends come and go, so if you have items in your home that you love, they never go out of style.” Learn more about Building BAM by following them on Facebook and Instagram.
