Easy Bedroom Makeover Ideas That Will Make Your Space Look Brand New


If you want to retreat to a relaxing space at the end of the day (and who doesn't?), you don't have to invest thousands of dollars for a top-to-bottom makeover. All of these ideas are simple enough to pull off in a day or two and will make a dramatic difference in your room.

Buy new bedding.

If you don't already have one, consider a duvet or comforter. New bedding can create a whole new look, taking your room from graphic to girly, modern to classic, primary to pastel and more.

 

Add new hardware.

Replace old drawer handles and pulls with decorative ones. This low-effort trick adds personality and style to nondescript or inexpensive furniture. Want proof: The rings on this nightstand perfectly match the nautical theme.

 

Hook up a headboard.

Make even the simplest bed look lush and sleek with a wall-mounted headboard. You can even create a fun painted-on version using a wall stencil headboard.

 

 

Dress up the dresser.

Adding a statement-making display on top of your storage will draw the eye away from overflowing drawers (our favorite little trick). This home takes advantage of a hanging poster and brass figurings, but framed family photos also do the trick.

 

Clear the clutter.

Rid the bedroom of anything that isn't conducive to relaxation or romance. This includes the TV, since research shows having one in the boudoir hinders sleep. At the very least, hide any stress-inducing clutter in a stylish container.

 

Create a reading corner.

All it takes is a cozy chair, a standing lamp and a new book to make the corner of your bedroom feel like a brand new space.

 

Add interesting trim.

The simple addition of rickrack, ribbon or trim borders on bed skirts, pillowcases or shams can yield glowing results. The blue details on this bedding ties in colors from the headboard and creates a cohesive look.

 

Lay down a rug.

Adding a properly-sized area rug makes a room look bigger and more pulled together, even on top of carpeting. One warning: Be sure to choose one that's large enough to tuck under the bed and at least one other piece of furniture. 

 

Get your move on.

Even a slight shift in a room's furniture or decor (especially bookshelf styling) can add new life to familiar quarters, so don't be afraid to shake things up. And while you're at it, rotate and flip your mattress to prevent uneven wear.

 

Bring in a bench.

Nothing elevates a bedroom faster than a bench at the end of the bed. This woven bamboo and seagrass design offers storage, bonus seating and a natural touch to the space.
