Simple Tips to Refresh Your Bedroom

Ready to give your bedroom a new look but not ready to invest in a full makeover? A few small updates throughout the room can create a fresh, new look without spending a ton of money. Read on as we share 5 of our favorite updates for a quick bedroom refresh.

Paint the Walls

Paint is one of the most inexpensive ways to drastically update a room. If you want a bold, dramatic look go with a dark wall color or a bright, crisp white if you want a fresh, modern look.

Rearrange the Furniture

Consider moving the bed to another part of the room. Often, the first thing people do is place a bed along the longest blank wall, but actually the bed can look great in front of a window too. Try different arrangements until you find one that works.

Switch Up the Bedding

Changing out the bedding is the most popular way to update the look of a bedroom. For a big change, switch out the entire bedding collection. For a small change, switch out the decorative pillows and add a new throw to the end of the bed.

Add Seating

A simple chair or bench can automatically make a bedroom feel more inviting. Even the smallest of bedrooms can make room for a sitting area. Consider a bench at the end of the bed, a pair of chairs along an empty wall or even switching out one of the nightstands for a chair.

Update the Bedside

Adding new bedside lighting can make a big impact in a room. Wall sconces or hanging pendants are great options to consider. Another quick update for a nightstand is to switch out that old alarm clock for a new one.
