Whether you just moved into a new house, or you have decided to renovate your bedroom to give it a new aesthetic appeal, reaching your ideal and sophisticated bedroom is an easy thing to do.
With a few tips and tricks, you’ll be able to make your bedroom not only smart and functional but a relaxing and comfortable sanctuary as well.
Below we have gathered the many ways you can give your bedroom a makeover.
Play around with paint, wallpaper, and color schemes
When going for that expansive and airy look, consider white and neutral colors to truly make your room warm and heavenly. However, don’t be afraid to go bold with colors to truly allow your bedroom to make an impact.
You can color block the wall with a bright color, or even go two-toned and paint it in two different shades by having the lower half in bold and top in a lighter shade.
Choose a color scheme that is suitable and layer it around your room; try mixing warm and cool colors together, but for an even more sophisticated look, add an unusual color accent to it. If your bedroom is white and navy blue, splash around some gold accents to make it pop.
Why focus on your walls? Many homeowners have been painting their ceilings and leaving the wall a neutral color to make it appear higher than it is. For smaller bedrooms, consider painting the floor instead to make it look expensive.
Forget the paint and choose wallpapers that make a statement, especially if you’re going for the neutral theme. Don’t be afraid to mix patterns because they will definitely make your room pop.
