We spend a lot of time in our bedrooms! It’s easy for us to get bored with our bedroom decor or bedding, so it’s no wonder that many people choose their bedroom to revamp and refresh when it’s time to make some changes in the home. Refreshing the bedroom can seem like an awfully daunting (and expensive) task, but it doesn’t have to be! If you’re looking for quick, affordable ways to refresh the comfiest room in the house, read on!
1. Change the Look of Your Space
This is a step that can be as involved or hands-off as you wish for it to be! If your walls need a fresh coat of paint, spring for an interesting color or design. Studies have shown that incorporating the color blue into your bedroom decor brings a sense of calm to your space. If painting all of your walls seems overwhelming, opt for a stunning and chic accent wall to draw the eye in and amp up your space. If you live in an apartment where you’re not able to paint or painting just isn’t your thing, check out the tons of peel and stick wallpaper on the market. This is an inexpensive way to totally transform your walls and refresh your favorite room of the house!
While you’re making changes to the walls, don’t forget that changing your artwork or color scheme is an impactful way to reset and refresh any space. Check out local flea markets, yard sales, and antique stores for high-quality artwork and wall decor at a fraction of the price. Also popular are online marketplaces such as Facebook Marketplace, Nextdoor, Offer Up, and more! Being on-trend doesn’t have to come with a big budget.
If it’s been a while since you changed your comforter, throw pillows, or blankets, opt for pops of color or design in these items. Changing decorative bedding can be inexpensive and go a long way in crafting a new, refreshed space. Sick of your furniture? Why not try DIY-ing an upholstered headboard for a fraction of the cost of buying a new bedroom set? The sky’s the limit!
2. Clean Up!
Let’s face it – our bedrooms are often our favorite rooms of the house, but they may also be the dirtiest and cluttered. There never seem to be enough hours in the day to straighten and tidy our bedrooms to our dream level, but taking time to prioritize removing clutter and tidying up can lead to a clearer mind and better rest. Clutter makes us feel stressed, and stress is a recipe for disaster when it comes to our sleep and well-being. If you’re taking time to refresh your space, make sure that getting rid of excess items and putting things you do want to keep away is on your to-do list.
3. Freshen Up Your Bedding
Beyond tidying and purchasing cosmetic decor items, refreshing your bedroom should also include a focus on your bedding. We spend one third on our lives asleep in our beds, and that means that our pillows, sheets, mattress toppers, and mattresses are subjected to lots of sweat, bodily fluids, bacteria, and skin cell build-up that may be making our bedrooms less calming and comfy than we’d like them to be. Truly refreshing your bedroom may include purchasing high-quality bedding materials that are antimicrobial to decrease harmful allergens and bacteria that share the bed with us. If you sleep hot, opt for cooling bedding products to help you wake up refreshed in your newly amped up bedroom space. Our beds are the center of our bedrooms, so we should prioritize our comfort!
No matter your budget or design experience, refreshing your bedroom is easy! Change up your bedding products, make some simple design changes, and de-clutter your space for optimal refresh potential in your bedroom at an affordable rate.
