Sometimes you don’t have to spend a lot of money in a space to make a BIG impact. I am giving you 6 simple changes that make a BIG impact in the Bedroom.
Impact #1 – Painting outdated Bedroom Furniture
The biggest impact you can make on any space is by painting and updating the furniture. If you have good quality furniture, why not save some money, keep what you have and just give it a new color and an updated look.
The possibilities are endless on the different ways you can paint and update furniture. You can go bold or remain pretty neutral. The options are yours when you paint it yourself.
Come over to see how I gave this 1980 bedroom set a much-needed update.
Impact #2 – Add a New Rug
Adding a new rug can add dimension and needed color under the bed. It is a perfect way to cover up old carpet or carpet that doesn’t match the new decor colors.
Just like my friend Ursula from Home Made by Carmona did with the rug above. You can see how the rug ties in all the details of the space and make a bigger impact with the rug.
Impact #3 – Adding throw pillows and blankets
It is easy to add impact with throw pillows and blankets. I like to buy a decorative pillow cover and cover the current pillows. This way you don’t have decorative pillows spilling out of the closet when you open it.
The best part about throw pillows and blankets is that they can be easily changed to achieve an entirely different look and feel of the space.
Impact #4 – Change the Lighting
Nothing dates a space more than outdated lighting fixtures. Don’t overlook the details in a bedroom by leaving old lighting fixtures.
Adding a new hanging light or making one will definitely make a big impact. You highlight the design of the space from the details of the lights and lamps you choose.
Finding a thrift store lamp and giving it a new shade or a new base finish completes the space next to the bed.
Impact #5 – Create a Reading Nook
It is simple to add a cozy reading nook to any space.
No matter the size, adding a chair to a corner of the room or next to a large piece of furniture creates comfort in any space and adds a Big Impact in the bedroom.
Impact #6 – Adding decorative accents
Don’t forget the Big impact that decorative accents can add to a room.
Shop in thrift stores, you might be surprised at the home decor accessories you will find. Some can be displayed the way they are and others just need a quick change by painting them to match your decor.
Create a tray full of goodies to share with your guests. They will appreciate the extra touches.
You don’t need to invest a lot of time or money in a bedroom to make a big impact. What simple changes have you made that make a big impact in your bedroom?
