5 Tips to Update your Bedroom to Modern

The bedroom is your sanctuary—a place where you can rest, relax and sleep in peace. All the more reason why it needs to kept up with the times. An ideal bedroom needs to be soothing, clean, and welcoming. At the same time, there should be no compromise on the style aspect. So, how do you get all these to flow along harmoniously? It is not as difficult as it appears to be. Here’s how.


Primp Up the Headboard

The headboard of the bed is perhaps the most neglected when it comes to upgrading a bedroom. Most people look at all other items of furniture and accessories in the room but fail to notice the possibilities that the headboard holds. One way of taking your bed to the next level is to get a padded headboard. Just as you would see in luxurious hotels and boutique apartments or on the glossy pages of interior decoration magazines. Try this if you are aiming for sophistication.

Put Up Some Wallpaper

This is ‘the’ trend in bedroom décor today. Wallpapering an accent wall can drastically up the aesthetic value of a bedroom. Choose wallpaper that is in keeping with the theme and colour scheme of the room. Don’t make it too loud as soothing is what you should be aiming for in a bedroom.

Add a Rug

Just a single item of furnishing—a stunning rug, can elevate an ordinary bedroom to an elegant one. It doesn’t matter what type of flooring you have, you simply cannot go wrong with a rug. It adds character and personality to the room not to mention helping keep your feet warm during cold weather spells.

Jazz Up the Wardrobe

Your bedroom wardrobe design is definitely high on the functionality aspect. But what about the glamour quotient? Don’t fret, all is not lost. You can still work wonders by tweaking the wardrobe designs for bedroom use. Putting up mirrors on the doors of the wardrobe, substituting the handles and knobs with something funky, and adding some lighting inside the wardrobe are some ideas you can use.  If it’s a TV cabinet wardrobe design that exists in your room, these options can be used there too.

Personalize the Space

Your bedroom is your personal space, so mark it yours with some great family photographs blown up and tacked to the wall. Try experimenting with a mix of black and white as well as colourful memories. Photographs can speak a thousand words, so make use of this and use your personal shots as artwork.  Put up a couple of wall shelves and fill them with memorable souvenirs from places you have visited and achievements of your children.

These are but a few ways in which you can upgrade your bedroom in a jiffy. There are many more ways to go about it if you have deep pockets and enough time to spare on the details. Just let your imagination run wild and you will be surprised at what you come up with!
