There’s no shame in your before game. A boring bedroom is the perfect blank slate to start your easy bedroom refresh. As long as you have the basics, like a bed, dresser, and nightstand, you’re ready to go.
Tip: We love using an upholstered bed since it softens the room and it will go with anything you add to the décor.
2. Paint a wall
Tip: This will be the start of your room’s color scheme, so plan for the palette of the entire room.
3. Add an Area Rug
Tip: Your area rug should be large enough so that your feet don’t touch the bare ground when getting out of bed. More area rug buying tips here.
4. Bring in Accent Furniture
Tip: See what furniture you already have in other rooms that could be pulled into the bedroom.
5. Dress the Walls and Bed
Tip: Play with patterns! It doesn’t all have to match perfectly, as long as you stay within your color palette.
