At Majestic, our remodelers have years of experience and can help you with a variety of projects. We’ve talked a lot about additions, kitchen and bathroom remodels, siding and windows, and flooring; but we haven’t talked as much about the other rooms of the house.
When you think about rooms that you spend the most time in, one that is often overlooked is the bedroom. This is probably because much of that time is spent sleeping. Still, this is one of the most important rooms you have in your home.
That is why we have put together this list of 13 easy ideas to help you remodel your bedroom. These general tips will help you love your bedroom more – but if you want to go further, feel free to contact us!
If you would like some help thinking up more ideas for your room or implementing the ideas you have, give us a call! And if you’d like more ideas, check out our Pinterest board about bedrooms.
Add some color!
Don’t be tempted by too many neutral colors. Yes, they go with anything, but try throwing in one strong color to add energy to the room. When choosing colors for your bedroom, most people prefer to select hues that have a calming effect, such as pastels, soft greens and blues, and warm colors.
Upgrade your window treatments.
Depending on the bedroom, one of the easiest ways to completely transform the look and feel of the room is to change the window treatments. Swap out those old mini-blinds for some sweeping curtains or modern shades.
If you want to get really creative, you can also use drapes to divide the room or make the door to your bedroom a grand entrance.
Go antiquing (and try refurbishing)!
Some of the coolest furniture available is hiding in plain sight at that antique or secondhand store just down the road. Don’t be afraid to do a little digging because you might find that perfect armchair or night stand to complete your room.
Embrace natural light.
While not always possible to have in every bedroom, natural light is a lot more peaceful and calming than artificial light. You want your bedroom to feel warm and cozy, and natural lighting systems can help a great deal.
Think about themes.
How do you want your bedroom to feel? Romantic, modern, cottage, minimalist, opulent, traditional, something else? Once you have a basic theme in mind, it will make selecting colors and pieces a lot easier.
Have fun with a DIY headboard.
Whether wood, upholstery, or less common materials such as canvas or shutters, think about ways to update your headboard. A creative headboard can be a really strong statement piece in your bedroom.
Don’t be afraid of patterns.
Don’t be afraid to mix patterns! Old-school rules say print-mixing is in poor taste, but done correctly, mixing patterns in the same color family adds texture and interest to any room. Stick to two or three colors per room, and stay within those color families when mixing prints.
Can you squeeze in a sitting area?
If you have the space, sitting areas help bedrooms feel like they are more than just for sleeping. It’s also space to live, read, and chat.
Art and other wall hangings
Don’t leave those walls bare! Fill your walls with creative pieces that mean something to you. If you’re ambitious, try painting an abstract piece and hanging it up. Or create something with pallets or cork board squares. The possibilities are nearly endless.
Maybe you shouldn’t go as far as Seinfeld’s Kramer wanted to, but creating levels can make a small room feel a lot larger than it really is. Creating a loft in a room makes use of previously “dead” space.
Wallpaper is coming back!
This is related to the earlier comment about patterns, but wallpaper is making a strong return in all parts of the house. Think about what colors and patterns you like, and go big with it!
Try inserting a bit of nature into your bedroom. Fresh flowers and other natural pieces can really make a room feel more comfortable while still making it pop.
Make it convenient.
Master suite conveniences are the next way of upgrades for your master bedroom. Try adding a coffee bar with mini fridges and your favorite coffee machine. Other appliances can be adding depending on space and preferences.
