Maybe you’re mostly happy with your bedroom, but when you look around, the room still seems a little blah. You like your furniture and the color scheme works, but something is missing: personality. Even a well-decorated bedroom can have a case of the blahs if nothing in the décor points to your own personal style.
Is your bedroom a total snore? Granted, you should be tired in there, but you shouldn’t be tired of the decor. Get inspired with these style ideas.
SPLASH ON NEW PAINT
One of the main culprits of a boring bedroom is the wall color. Change up those walls if you want to improve your bedroom. And you aren’t limited to repainting all the walls a single color.
ADD SOME LIGHT SOURCES
You may not think your bedroom needs much light, but a lack of light sources is probably contributing to your bedroom’s lackluster appearance. Light sources are a great way to spruce up a room because they can double as accent pieces.
SHOW YOUR ARTISTIC SIDE
Go ahead and hang your favorite painting, print, poster, quilt, or collection of family photos on the wall over your headboard, or on whichever bedroom wall has the most open space. You’ll get an immediate dose of interest.
CHOOSE COLORFUL THROW PILLOWS
Neutrals are soothing, but a bedroom without any contrast is boring. Not to fear, you can add a touch of color just by adding a few bright throw pillows to your bed.
ADD METALLIC ELEMENTS
A little bit of bling adds excitement to your favorite outfit, and it’s no different in the bedroom. A few touches of shine, go a long way to dispelling the doldrums.
START AN INDOOR GARDEN
When it’s time to liven up the bedroom, you can’t go wrong with something alive. Houseplants not only add color, contrast, and natural appeal, they also help to purify your bedroom air.
Your bedding is one of the most important factors in setting your bedroom’s mood and style, so if you’ve been making do with nothing more than a boring blanket, it’s time to switch things up.
CREATE AN ACCENT WALL
An accent wall at the head of your bed is a surefire cure for the bedroom blahs. There are many ways to create an accent wall.
FIND A PRETTY BEDSIDE LAMP
Every bed needs a bedside lamp, so why not choose one that’s something special? You can find lamps relatively inexpensively, which offers a great way to add a quick touch of interest to your bedroom without breaking your budget.
SWAP OUT YOUR RUG
Floors are frequently forgotten when it comes to decorating. But add a strongly patterned or colored area rug, and suddenly your bedroom floor says “This room is anything but boring.”
Whether you plan on spending ‘extra’ time there or simply want to leave the doors open without having your room an embarrassment to anyone passing by, above are sure fire ways to brighten up even the dullest of bedrooms.
