Give Your Bedroom
A New Look With Paint, Fabric and Crown Molding
Many people enjoy the thrill of home improvement and changing
the way a room looks. After all, we all like something new,
and we all value our homes, so improving them can be a fun
project to do. And it doesn't have to be difficult either,
if you follow a simple plan of attack.
many people think of decorating, their thoughts turn to
colors and paints, wallpaper, and even furniture. And of
course, these are all importaint, but too many people overlook
the most essential of all the elements--the fabric. Experimenting
with different fabric colors, textures and patterns, they
could have a simple, effective, inexpensive and often dramatic
way of decorating a bedroom.
out the fabrics to use should be the first thing to do;
every thing else such wall paper or paint will follow.
are some ideas that maybe useful to when selecting fabrics
for a bedroom;
textured, light pastel coloured fabrics are romantic and
feminine and can be decorated with flowers, gingham, ruffles
or lace are feminine and romantic.
Moroccan or Asian warm earth tones, with multiple textures,
rich, bold colors, plaids, stripes and oversized flowers
may appeal to couples.
may prefer the elegant look with leather, chenille, rich
tapestries, warm colors with oversized pillows for that
extra look of sheer elegance.
would relish the contemporary look of leather, vinyl, cottons
and contrasts in colors and in shapes.
yet others would enjoy the natural shades of nature around
themselves at night, with whites, blues, yellows and greens,
and themes such as animals or the sea.
patterns is always perfect for a change in décor or
style. And even the smallest of changes make a difference.
Changing the duvet color or its style and the matching in
curtains and lampshades can make a whole new bedroom.
new bright and modern style can be created matching a white
duvet and comforter with some cheerful gingham edging. With
large bold red and white lowered curtains and a solid, red,
wooden chair with more matching white pillows and another
burst of red would furnish the new bedroom to near perfection.
Consider adding pillow shams and valances.
freshly framed pictures in various sizes and styles of frames
along one wall creates a gallery of memories to add further
to your personalized bedroom.
a sense of the country and outdoors try linking larger pictures
with coordinating ribbon hung from the top of the wall.
wallpaper makes a room look shabby and is best removed to
make way for fresh paint to match with or complement the fabrics.
molding is another inexpensive way to give a bedroom a facelift
although it is generally a two person job to put up. Crown
molding comes in a wide variety of styles and heights that
will make a bedroom look taller or shorter allowing you own
creativity. Crown molding makes for a perfect finish although
there are many borders in many designs and colors that will
add to those finishing touches.
may also decide to modernise your bed its self. Instead of
an expensive new headboard costing perhaps hundreds of dollars
try reclaiming or buying much more cheaply, a 6 panelled door
with no predrilled holes and screwing two sturdy legs against
it to line up with the bed. You can paint it, one solid colour
or a color or each panel as you wish to suit your new bedroom.
That extra decorative touch can be added with stencilling
or design transfers or stamps.
of these little touches can make a room look entirely different.
