In this post I’m giving some tips for bedroom decorating that’s fast and will give your bedroom a seasonal lift! Most people will spend an average of 8-10 hours in their bedroom every single night. Since you do spend oodles of time in your bedroom, it should be a relaxing sanctuary. You don’t need to go out and buy all new furniture and repaint the walls to change up your bedroom. Here are a few quick things you can do to change your bedroom decorating quickly.
Where to place your bed
Move your bed
Moving your bed can completely transform the way your bedroom looks. If you are working with a small bedroom, you may be forced to place it against a wall. If that’s the case then try moving it against a different wall to change things up. Get creative with the placement such as positioning it at an angle to make it a little more fun.
Change the curtains
One of the first things you will notice in the bedroom is the comforter and the drapes. While changing the curtains might not sound like a significant change, they can add a pop of color to a dull room. Flowing drapes can add a more airy appearance to your room. If you’re on a tight budget, consider repurposing the ones you have, as I showed in this post. This was the bedroom at the hotel we stayed in on our recent San Francisco trip. I love the layering of sheers and grey silk drapes in this classic room. A cornice hides the mechanism at top.
Change your bedding
If you are short on time, changing the color of the room is a little out of reach. However, changing your bedding is a fast bedroom decorating change that can have a big effect. Investing in a new set of sheets, a duvet, throw pillows, and even a new quilt can bring personality to the room when you’re short on time. You can also use textures and prints to give your room some dimension. The duvet set below is from Crane and Canopy and was used only in this shoot. You can find that set at their website here and since I’m downsizing I’m selling this unused set. If interested in the details just email me an email at [email protected]
Add some new artwork
You may not have time to paint the walls, but adding some new artwork can personalize your space. You can find framed prints to hang on the walls, or wall art to bring the room together with your new decor choices. For more tips on choosing the right artwork for your home, check out this article.
Add a decorative rug
Adding a decorative rug to your master bedroom can warm the room and change the look and feel of your bedroom decorating. Area rugs are easy to relocate and can be a great way to change up the room when you don’t want to change out your bedding.
Find a pretty bedside lamp
Adding a pretty bedside lamp to your nightstand can be a great way to dress up your side tables without purchasing new furniture. You can find gorgeous lamps at the thrift store without breaking the bank! A bedside lamp can wake up a boring bedroom in just seconds. If you don’t want to shop at the thrift store, you can also find great lamps at the discount stores that we all love as well as estate and garage sales.
Remember when decorating your bedroom, that the ultimate goal of this room is to sleep in it. When decorating your room, don’t forget to keep it functional. Fast bedroom decorating is simple to achieve! For more easy room changes you can do in five minutes, check out this article.
