Your bedroom is one of the most important areas in the house. It is your sanctuary away from the stresses of day to day living. No matter the size of the room you can undertake a suitable bedroom renovation to give you that personal space you deserve.
Firstly it is important to assess what is actually required to update or modernise the bedroom, and decide you can decide on a budget to meet your goals. If money is tight an inexpensive start to your bedroom renovation would be to repaint the walls. Choose a soft palette for a sophisticated yet relaxing style. Brighter colour notes can be added through the addition of accessories such as lamps, rugs and artwork.
As the bed itself is most often the focal point of the room, you can update the style of the bedroom simply and inexpensively by adding a new headboard and new bedding. There is no need to splash out of expensive linens as good quality bedding sets are readily available through online outlets and department stores. All you need to do is choose a style of bedding that fits in with your colour palette and style for the overall makeover. Modern styles include jewel colours and soft metallic shades. The addition of throws and throw pillows adds a touch of luxury and can easily be swapped out to fit in with the changing seasons.
Good quality, thick curtains or blinds are essential for a restful night’s sleep and there are a huge variety of styles available to satisfy most budgets and colour schemes.
Old furniture items such as chest of drawers and bedside tables can be renovated with a lick of paint to fit into the bedroom renovation scheme – this is a popular way to make simple changes.
Storage is essential in a bedroom and as part of the bedroom renovation you might like to consider your storage needs. Too many pairs of shoes cluttering up the floor?Clothes piling up on chairs due to lack of wardrobe space? There are specialist furniture companies that will design a bespoke storage solution for all your bedroom requirements. At the budget end of the scale you can purchase a huge variety of storage boxes and bags to hide your clutter and keep your bedroom looking fresh and clean.
The simple addition of a fitted wardrobe or built-in shelves will dramatically increase storage space and streamline the look of the bedroom.
Lighting is a very important thing to consider during a bedroom renovation project. Recessed ceilings lights are modern and stylish and will have a big impact on the look of the room. Alternatively, think about adding a number of lamps around the room, and don’t forget the addition of scented candles to create a sophisticated/romantic ambience as required.
A more extensive bedroom renovation project could include the addition of an en-suite bathroom to make the master bedroom that bit more comfortable and add considerable value to the property.
