4 Ways to Spice Up Your Bedroom’s Look and Feel
You probably spend a lot of time in your bedroom. It’s where you wake up to start your day, and then come back to unwind and settle down. That’s why it’s important to make it not only pleasing to look at, but also as comfortable and relaxing as possible.
Unlike your lounge or kitchen, your bedroom is a little more hidden from prying eyes, so you’re free to make it as personal and unique to your own taste as you want to. In doing so, you can make your bedroom a place you really want to spend time in. A place that you can wake up and smile at the sight of.
Customize Your Bed
The bed is what defines your bedroom – it’s literally in the name. Making it as lush, attractive and comfortable as possible will go a long way in improving the overall look and feel of the room. Add a few pillows and an attractive headboard. Then change up the color scheme and finish it off with a quality quilt cover.
Add a Rug
There are a few ways to go about this. A thick, furry rug will make your bedroom feel like a holiday home in the mountains. A thinner rug with a striking design will give it a clean, modern look that makes your room feel more alive and lived-in. Either way, you’ll be spicing things up a notch or two.
Upgrade Your Lighting
Lighting plays a huge role in determining how your bedroom feels, especially at night. Depending on your taste, you can opt for some alternative lamps with a more yellow shade for maximum cosiness. Alternatively, pick up a set of RGB LED lights like those in the Philips Hue range. This way you can change the color of your lighting to your heart’s content.
Grow Some Indoor Plants
Some indoor-friendly greenery is a modern essential in any home. Plants add a ton of life, color and texture to their surroundings. You can also play around with different pots to find one that matches the style of your room. Pressed for time? Opt for a low-maintenance cactus, or even go 100% maintenance-free with an artificial plant.
With the right products and a bit of creativity, you can turn even the blandest space into somewhere you want to sleep every night. What have you incorporated into your bedroom to spice it up? Let us know in the comments.
