It is not difficult to change how a bedroom looks. There
are so many ways to transform it that it can be done as
often as you want. The most frequent and striking way
is using fabric. People commonly think of other ways including
wallpaper, paint, and new furniture but forget how effective
fabric can be at changing the look of the room. Your bedroom
can be made over by using a variety of fabric colors,
patterns and textures.
first thing to do when remodeling is pick out a fabric.
Here are some suggestions that will help you to choose
(feminine) – light colors, supple textures, gingham,
floral, ruffles, and lace
(couples) - warm natural colors or vibrant daring colors,
texture combinations, plaids, striping, a splash of
oversized floral, cultural themes (African, French)
– warm tones, huge pillows, dramatic fabrics,
leather, paisley, chenille, stripes,
- bright lush blues, reds, blacks, whites, leather,
avant-garde patterns, sharp edges, vinyl
– fabric combinations, animal prints, nautical
design and colors, tartans, checkerboard, nature-related
colors, green, yellow, blue
Any style can mix patterns. Changing the curtains
or the duvet can entirely alter the room’s appearance.
Update any boring or passé curtains or bedspreads to
transform the space. A great way to update a room is using
the same color combinations but in different patterns and
textures. By using red edging on a duvet, floral patterned
red curtains and a gingham cornice, and a solid red chair
in a modern texture with pillows that have red accents; a
room can be instantly transformed into something beautiful
and romantic. Modernize picture frames and group them on one
wall to instantly and economically update your bedroom. The
frames can be different textiles (metal, wood), styles, and
shades. If you are redecorating with a country look in mind,
large pictures with matching ribbons can be hung from the
highest point on the wall.
great, inexpensive, way to update is crown modeling, an easy
installation with the help of another person. Molding comes
in a variety of styles and sizes, which can give a room the
illusion of being taller and bigger than it really is. If
the room is wallpapered, get rid of it and paint the walls
a clean, new color; adding crown molding as the finishing
touch. An easy and economical way to upgrade the bed is adding
new contrasting pillow shams and coordinating accent pillows.
The shams and accent pillows can be made by using your own
fabric or can be purchased. Rather than spending unnecessary
money on a headboard, find a six-panel door at your local
junkyard or home improvement store. It is best to use a door
that does not have the pre-cut door knob. Two well-made legs
with screws can be easily purchased and screwed into a hole
bored in the side of the door.
door can be painted one color or each panel with several colors,
given an antique finish or stained. You can paint a design,
stencil, stamped design, or decoupage the panels to give it
a decorative touch or use the door as a headboard as is, resting
on the legs. Your own personal touches can make a room look
fresh and new.
