Simple master bedroom changes


IO-DeckerDoes your master bedroom need a bit of makeover? Here’s the good news; a beautiful master bedroom doesn’t have to come with a hefty price tag. All you need is a bit of spare time and a few simple decorative elements to completely reinvent the look of the room. Here are five quick and easy ways to update your master bedroom without breaking the bank.

Lighting: Lighting is an essential decorative element, especially in the home. Proper lighting makes color more vibrant, while drastically affecting the energy of the room. Decide on the type of atmosphere you’d like to create in your master bedroom and formulate how the lighting can help you achieve this look. Softer lighting will create a more elegant feel while bright lighting will make the room cheerful and inviting. You could even install a dimmer switch to adjust the lighting depending on your activity or mood.

Lighting Fixtures: And of course, lighting fixtures are an important decorative element. Replace your old table or floor lamps with new ones that feature a different style. Install a few sconces along the walls. You could also consider swapping your old ceiling fixture with a chandelier.

New Hardware: You don’t need to order an entirely new bedroom suite to create a new style. Try swapping out your existing hardware and drawer pulls for new ones. You’ll be amazed at the difference new hardware can make.

Add a Mirror: Mirrors can instantly add polish and drama while creating the illusion of space. The reflective surface will also brighten the room. Plus, with all of the different styles, textures and shapes available, you’ll be sure to find one that compliments the atmosphere you’re trying to design.

New Décor: There’s no reason to make sweeping décor changes. If you are redesigning on a tight budget, focus on the small details. Update the bedroom with a fresh coat of paint and a new color palette. Choose a new duvet cover, or simply change out your throw pillows. Changing out little details, such as table lamps, picture frames or potted plants can make a big difference in the overall look of the room.

A master bedroom redesign project can be as extensive as you make it. If you are unsure of where to start, I’d suggest you begin by cleaning out the entire room and donating the items you no longer use.
