When your bedroom used to be your sanctuary but it needs a little sprucing up, there are some quick and easy wys you can give it a fresh look.
You don’t need to do a complete renovation. Who has the time or money to devote to that anyway?
Let’s give your bedroom a new look with these easy upgrades:
1. Pick a Wall, Any Wall
Adding an accent wall to a room will immediately change the whole vibe of the room. In the bedroom, the best accent walls are either behind the headboard or in front of the bed.
There are so many different ways to create an accent wall. You can use removable peel and stick wallpaper, paint it a different color, or even add some texture.

2. Show Some Plant Love
Greenery in the bedroom can give your room a fresh and outdoorsy feeling. Have you ever taken a nap outside? They are the most restful sleep you can ever get!
Bring those benefits to your bedroom by incorporating plenty of houseplants into your room.
Hanging plants are back in style, so why not find some Boho macrame plant holders and go green?
3. Splurge on Bedding
Sometimes it isn’t your bedroom that needs a redo, it’s your bed. You can change the whole look of your room simply by finding some uber-luxurious bedding.
I’m talking about the softest sheets, the fluffiest pillows, and the most comforting comforter you can find. Of course, they have to all be super cute.
To top things off, you can add some throw pillows into the mix.
4. Let There Be Light
When it’s time to sleep, of course, you don’t want your room lit up like a Christmas tree, but during the day, a dark room can be depressing.
One rule of thumb for many designers is to have three light sources in every room.
One should be natural, which is usually from the windows in the room. Make a habit to open the drapes when you wake up to let this essential light in.
The second light source would be the overhead light which is usually the main source of artificial light. You can add a lot of style to a room by upgrading this light source. Chandelier anyone?
The third type of lighting is accent lighting. This can also dramatically change the atmosphere in the room. These can be table lamps but the more creative you are with this the better.

5. Look Down
The floor is such an overlooked place in any room to upgrade but when you do it right, oh the things you can accomplish.
Your first option is to lay down an area rug. This one simple trick can take your room from bland to grand. Rugs like these will certainly set your room apart.
If you really hate your floor, you can lay down peel and stick tile for an entirely new floor without the hassle of pulling up the old one.
6. Feeling Faint?
Most bedrooms have a bed, a couple of nightstands, and a dresser. You can give your bedroom something more with the addition of a fainting couch.
These vintage pieces of furniture look so elegant with a silky throw laying over the side coupled with a tasseled throw pillow.
Instead of using the side of the bed to sit on, you can have this seating option for quiet reflections, putting on shoes, reading a book, or just catching yourself when you are feeling faint.
7. Make It Romantic
If your bedroom is too cold, you can add some special touches to heat things up a bit.
To add some romance to your bedroom, you can hang a canopy over your bed. Fresh cut flowers by the bedside will also increase the romantic look.
Sweet-smelling candles or string lights will create the perfect ambiance for cuddles and kisses.
These easy changes to your bedroom are proof that you don’t need to have a ton of money or a ton of time to make your bedroom somewhere you love to hang out again.
Try one, two, or more of these suggestions and see how your room takes shape.
