If you want to sleep well at night you need to create the right surroundings. That means designing a bedroom that’s both stylish and practical. That’s easier said than done, of course. Unless, that is, you follow these three easy steps for making over your bedroom with a minimum of fuss.
An extreme makeover doesn’t always have to involve a complete overhaul of the entire room. One of the best things about the bedroom is that a few small changes will have a big impact.
We know that everyone is different but the following rules are a framework for everyone to create their own extreme makeover.
- Never underestimate the importance of a good bed
Everyone enjoys being in bed. It’s more or less a scientific fact (okay, we don’t have any proof but, seriously, who doesn’t enjoy it?). Of course, you might enjoy it more if your bed was even more comfortable. When was the last time you changed the mattress? They do wear out over the years, meaning you might not be getting the level of support you need. It’s also a good idea to think about mattress toppers and pillows for that little extra bit of comfort under the covers. It might not sound extreme but believe us, this could make a very big difference.
- Out of sight, out of mind
Bedrooms can easily get cluttered. Clothes on the floor, beauty products lying around the place – sound familiar? With the right bedroom furniture there should be a place to store everything (and easily find it again too). A wardrobe, a chest of drawers and a dressing table should satisfy most bedroom storage needs (or at least doubling up on one of them).
- Pick a color
Bedrooms always look better when there is a coherent color theme going on. Some people prefer bright colors that will look clean and fresh in the morning. Others like darker colors that make them feel cozy and snug. Decide what kind of color scheme you want and then start to build up layers of color, using the bedding, curtains and throw cushions. It’s amazing what a dash of coordinated color can do to even a small bedroom space.
The bigger the change you want to make the bolder you should go with your choices. Choose bright colors for bedding and pick bold bedroom furniture, and you can totally change the feel of a bedroom in just three easy steps.
