If you are one of those people who pins and repins their decorating ideas on Pinterest but keeps shrugging them off to a later date, don’t worry! You are not alone! Everyone wants a house that looks like it’s come straight from a decor magazine, but not everyone is willing to roll up their sleeves and tackle the project.
However, there are ways that you can turn your old room into a beautiful, welcoming, and space without spending a fortune. Read on for six easy ways for a top-to-toe makeover to spice up your boring room.
1. Renew Your Window Treatments
Window treatments are like the eyebrows of the room; they shape the way space looks and feels. Tired curtains and blinds can instantly bring your room down, so even if they are a bit costly to invest in, new treatments can add so much value to your home.
If you are on a tight budget, you can look into ready-made options available on the internet and position them correctly to make the room feel more spacious. If you happen to have neutral and simple window treatments, you can keep them and add decorative elements, such as trims or fabric panels, to give them a whole new look.
2. Add Metallic Elements
Like bling that adds excitement to your outfits, metallic elements give the same effect to your space because they reflect light and brighten the room.
However, you should be careful not to overuse them if you don’t want to turn your space into a magic show. A few touches of shine, such as glass, metallic embellishments, or sequin pillows here and there, can go a long way to dispelling any mundaneness in the room.
Most people prefer warm metallics, such as gold, but if it works for your space, cool tones of silver can add a great touch to your space as well.
3. Transform Your Bed
Adding accessories and new bedsheets instantly add personality to a bedroom. Once you decide to give your bedroom a makeover, it is also time to treat yourself to some new bedding as the old ones are not likely to work anymore with your new look.
While you can pick up ready-made bed sheets at most stores, one really cool option is to get customized ones, which will really stamp your personality in the room. Customized bed sheets and duvets come in high-quality fabrics, custom sizes, designs, and prints, so you know that your bed won’t just look great; it will feel great too.
Now you will be able to get a great night’s sleep with your room looking super stylish.
4. Add Cushions and Accessories
If you have a boring couch or sofa, some new interesting cushions can give it an instant lift. To give your sofa a more natural look, you can mix cushions of different sizes, patterns, and colors so that the combinations are attractive but don’t seem overly designed. This simple method can be one of the quickest and most cost-effective makeover ways that can change its appearance immediately.
5. Add Art and Photos to your Walls
Blank walls are often a big reason why your space feels boring. By adding art and photos to these walls, you can add some feature elements that can cheer your room up. Your wall gallery can include some artwork you love, or alternatively, you can display your favorite holiday snaps or treasured pictures of family and friends.
Depending on the style you are going for, you can either buy a random assortment of frames or the same sized frames with a more polished look. Your wall art can also be a good conversation starter when someone visits, which you can update from time to time.
6. Repaint your Room
Color has one of the most substantial effects on your mood, so a new coat of paint has the power to transform your room’s look and feel completely. People often choose a paint color based on their personality and lifestyle. For example, darker wall colors give a more glamorous and modern look, while pastel colors create a spacious and comfortable atmosphere.
While there is no wrong choice if you are looking to redecorate your bedroom, try to avoid bright and neon colors, as they tend to excite you rather than relax.
Even if you are happy enough with your room, there may still be moments where you look around, and you still feel a little blah! Maybe your furniture and color scheme doesn’t work, or maybe the room is missing some of your personality? These simple tips can help to get your creativity going in the right direction. Make your room a fun weekend project, and you will be rewarded with a wonderful space every time you come home.
