7 Tips to Redesign Your Room


Your bedroom should be one of the main rooms you spend your money on when you're redesigning your home. Because it's not the first room that your guests see, this room often gets overlooked. However, your bedroom is one of the most important rooms in your house, essential for getting the rest and relaxation you need for your everyday life.



Change Things Up


Whether you're on a budget or not, switching up your room's layout can completely transform it without putting in much effort. It's also absolutely free. You can give your bedroom an entirely new look by just changing the position of your hybrid mattress and other furniture. While you're in the process of rearranging, take a look at all of the pieces in your bedroom and determine which ones can be taken out of the room. By removing small things like an unnecessary lamp, you can drastically improve the space.

Removing clutter in the process of rearranging your bedroom furniture can help you sleep better by making the airflow in the room better, regulating the temperature, and reducing any stress caused by excess clutter.


Change Your Bedding

Changing something as simple as your bedding can help you redesign and transform your bedroom. Consider changing the color of your duvet cover and changing throw pillows with the seasons. Selecting a bedding color that's different from what you currently have can make a huge impact on how you view your room. White bedding works for any season and can be easily layered with different colored blankets.


Consider switching out your bedding for warmer and cooler weather so that you have bedding that matches not only the seasons but the changing weather outside so that you can stay warm or cool when you need it most.


Add a Rug


Adding something to grab your attention as soon as you enter the room can change both the look and feel. A shag rug can create the feeling of coziness that you expect for a bedroom while keeping your toes warm during the winter, especially if your bedroom has hardwood floors.

Try Aromatherapy


Redesigning your room is about more than moving around and buying furniture; it’s about changing the way you feel while in the bedroom. An essential oil diffuser can look like a great piece of art in your bedroom while offering the benefits of aromatherapy. If you want your room to be a peaceful space, try adding lavender to your diffuser to promote relaxation.



Check Your Lighting


A bedroom should be well lit when you need it, with the ability to go dark when it's time for a nap or bed. Lighting is important when creating a relaxing and inviting atmosphere in a bedroom. While you may want a bright lamp for reading, you may want a dimmer light for getting ready for bed. To make an impactful change, consider getting or upgrading a bedside lamp. You may choose to simply replace your shades or consider swapping your lamp out altogether.


Get Better Storage


If your bedroom is just an extension of your closet or dresser, you need better storage options. Storage is necessary for keeping clutter to a minimum and improving the flow of your room. There are tons of storage options available, from under-the-bed storage to additional closet storage to keep your clothes tidy.



Similarly, if you're an avid reader, you need proper storage for your books. Look into different options for bookshelves, including traditional shelves or floating bookshelves that allow you to put your books anywhere and use them as decoration.


Upgrade Your Walls


Your walls can also impact the vibe of your room. If your wall color is boring or can be improved, try opting for darker, more relaxing colors. If you prefer vibrant colors like yellow, that's okay, too. Find the colors that speak to you so that your room can be truly one of a kind.


If you don't want to paint your walls, look for wall decals and mirrors to enhance your space and make it feel cozier.
