9 Simple Ways To Refresh Your Bedroom

 Check out these simple ideas that will make your bedroom feel brand new without a huge effort.

You know the feeling. Your bedroom looks outdated or you are just tired of the way it looks. Walking into your bedroom does not bring you joy. It may do just the opposite and you no longer get excited about spending time in your bedroom. You wake up every morning wishing that your room looked nicer. Then you realize the amount of time it would take to remodel your bedroom. So you don't change the look of your bedroom.

 Do you want to refresh the look of the room but you don't want to put in a lot of effort? 

 Changing the look of any room in your house can be done, without spending a huge amount of time or money. So before you start painting the walls or buying new furniture, check out these simple ways to refresh your bedroom space. 

1. Change your Sheets and Comforter

 Something as simple as replacing your bedding with new items may help the room look nicer. So change your sheets and blankets. You may have some sheets in your linen closet that you have not used in a while or you may want to purchase new bamboo sheets. Replacing your bedding does not have to mean spending a lot of money as you can buy a duvet cover to place over your comforter. Some places even sell sheet sets that include duvet covers. So replace your old bedding with new ones. While you are buying new sheets, take the time to replace your pillow. Pillows wear out and a new pillow may just help you sleep better.

2. Get a Rug

 The floor may be the first thing that you notice when you walk into a room. So adding a rug to your floor will make a huge difference. That rug can be as simple as a decorative throw rug or it can be a big rug that you place under your bed. Rugs are a great way to make old carpets and floors look new again.

3. Add Plants

 Plants and flowers always brighten up any room. It is like bringing the outdoors inside. Plants come in many different colors and will add a special touch to your bedroom. Some plants are also great for keeping the air clean. Don't worry if you don't have a green thumb. There are plenty of options for plants that don't need water or sunlight. A silk plant or a vase of silk flowers will still make your bedroom bright and cheery.

4. Swap out the Curtains

Over time curtains and blinds start to fade or collect dust. Your curtains may simply be outdated or you may no longer like them. So swap out the curtains in your bedroom with new curtains. Choose a pattern or color that makes you smile. When you wake up in the morning, the curtains are usually the first thing you see.  Bedroom curtains are an inexpensive and easy way to have a little fun with your bedroom decor. If you like your bedroom super dark when you sleep, then select blackout curtains. If you love waking up with the sun, maybe a sheer curtain would be best. 

5. Make some Shelves

 Adding shelves to the wall will not only refresh your bedroom but they will also give you some extra storage space. Shelves are great for showcasing all those small items that are special to you. You can also use a pair of shelves for books or to display photos. I like using shelves for plants and I discovered a way to make shelves from broken furniture. Shelving comes in many different sizes so think of what you want to display before you buy them.

6. Add Texture to a Wall

 So many people think that they have to paint walls to refresh their bedroom. Sure a new coat of paint in a different color will make a bedroom look nice but painting walls is time-consuming. Painting means moving furniture, covering up items with tarps, and taping up the walls.  Painting is an all-day project.

 There is an easier way to change the look of your bedroom walls without having to use paint. A wall mural is a simple way to refresh any room and it can add excitement to the look of the room. Adding a wall mural to one wall of the bedroom will brighten up your room in a big way. You can select any size for your wall mural. The mural can cover the whole wall or it can a pop of color to a smaller section of the wall. The best wall surface cover is one with texture. Surfaces & textures provide visuals that capture your attention and make the room look so beautiful.

7. Move Items Around the Home

 Giving your bedroom a new look does not always require a trip to the store or any money. It is as simple as taking a walk around your home. Look in the other rooms of your home for some items that may look better in the bedroom. That may mean a picture in the living room or a vase from the dining room just might add that special touch to your bedroom. Think outside the box. A teacup may be the perfect item to place on your bedside table to hold those small items. Even a piece of furniture from another room may have a different purpose in the bedroom.

 When considering adding a new piece of furniture to your bedroom, a stylish crushed velvet bed can be a game-changer in transforming the space. These beds, known for their luxurious texture and sophisticated appearance, can serve as the centerpiece of your bedroom, instantly elevating its style and comfort. Crushed velvet has a unique way of reflecting light, adding depth and richness to the room's aesthetic. Incorporating a crushed velvet bed can seamlessly blend with various decor styles, making it a versatile choice for those looking to refresh their bedroom's look with a single, impactful update.

8. Get Inspiration

Sometimes just looking at other bedroom ideas online or in stores, may give you the inspiration for your new bedroom. Head to Pinterest for ideas for bedroom remodeling. Other places to visit for inspiration are home decor stores. Some places have room displays that showcase the bedroom products. Magazines can also give you some inspiration for bedroom decor.

9. Remove the Clutter

 One of the best ways to make a room look new is simply the process of decluttering. All the extra items that you no longer use can make a room look cluttered. So, remove items from the top of dressers and take out furniture that you are not using. That exercise machine that you have not used in months or all those books on your bedside table are eyesores. Those eyesores could be making your bedroom look ugly to you. Even removing clothes that you no longer wear from the closet can refresh your bedroom. So take time to declutter.
