How to Give Your Bedroom Décor a Boost This Summer

It’s your oasis, hideout, the place you go to lay your head to rest at night. We spend some of our most important moment in the bedroom recharging and relaxing, so why shouldn’t it look great and feel great to spend time in?

When your bedroom starts to feel drab or even unwelcoming, then it’s time to make some interior design changes. Here are a few tips for giving your bedroom décor a boost that will refresh the space without the price of replacing everything.

Shopping for Something New

No, you don’t have to embark on a major renovation that will require you to evacuate your home for a little while. Approach your improvement project with an open mind and a frugal attitude, but don’t completely write off improvements like a window and door replacement.

No matter where you are and what companies you look to for window and door options, there are a few things you should look for as a sign of a reliable window company. After all, updating your windows is a major investment so you want to partner up with a company that you can trust for your new windows in Kitchener and the southern Ontario region. Look for businesses that have been around for a while, that are happy to talk about their credentials, and that have a long list of happy customer testimonials.

Identify Your Intent

What is it that you want out of your new bedroom, exactly? To make sure your project is a success, find out what your objective for the room will be and keep it in mind as you make your decisions. Ask yourself these questions to get the ball rolling:

What do you want the room to make you feel?

What style do you want to have in this room?

If you share the room with someone, do you know their point of view on the project?

What is the purpose of the room? How should it function?

Clean and Declutter

Sometimes the solution to an overcrowded room is to clear out pieces that you aren’t using frequently. Home declutter guru Marie Kondo has made waves around the world with her method of tidying up a space and getting rid of items you don’t need anymore. Her method can help you get rid of clothes you don’t wear, trinkets that don’t get used, old shoes, old magazines, and more.

Clean Room = Blank Canvas

Clearing out clutter will then make way for you to clean your room and make it truly sparkle. If you have carpeting, a steam clean (either by yourself or a professional) will breathe new life into your flooring and make things feel open and clear.

Clean the dust and dirt out of your windowsills, the dust from your baseboards, and even give your curtains a wash to really enjoy a clean and sparkly room that you can then breathe new life into with a fresh coat of paint, new area rug, brighter windows, or new upholstery.
