Hey ya’ll! Morgan here again; Decocrated enthusiast and guest blogger, and owner of The Patient Mom blog. What is it about spring that makes me want to redecorate my whole house? I usually start daydreaming about updating my home decor while knee-deep in spring cleaning. While redecorating every spring is not feasible (or in budget), there are a few cheap and easy ways to give your home (more specifically, master bedroom) a quick face lift. Depending on time and budget, you can work one or all of these tips into your home!
Fresh Coat of Paint
This one is a no brainer - a quick and easy way to transform any room in your home is with a fresh paint job! I recommend light tones to brighten up your space and make it look bigger.
Work in Textures
I’ve never been a fan of plain, painted walls. Instead, I love to work in textures like waniscotting, beadboard, shiplap, or even wallpaper. Adding this wainscotting halfway up the perimeter of our master bedroom added character and completely transformed our once basic bedroom.
Throw Pillows & Blankets
Adding or switching on throw pillows on your bed, or draping a cute blanket across the corner can really spruce things up. Throw pillow covers are relatively cheap, and you could purchase different styles for different seasons to switch things up throughout the year. I also LOVE blankets, so draping one on your bed, or hanging on a blanket ladder in the corner works wonders.
Hang Some Wall Art
Wall art is so versatile and can really make a space pop. However; I am a firm believer that when it comes to a master bedroom, less is more. A simple piece hung above your bed or sparsely throughout the room can really make the room feel like home. I recommend something whimsical and/or romantic (because that’s the vibe I am going for in my bedroom) and not bright, loud or distracting. I feel like a modern piece with bright colors would only keep me up at night!
It’s All About the Rug
I am a big fan of hardwood floors, which means we have them throughout our entire house. I do agree with those who insist that wood floors don’t give off a “comfy/cozy” vibe, which is why I think area rugs are so very important. After we replaced our floors, we added this beautiful, blue toned area rug. I think it serves as the focal point of the room, and since I prefer solid and textured comforters, I knew this ruf would tie the whole room together.
Splurge on a New Comforter
We all know how expensive comforters can be, and if you regularly find yourself with kids, pets (maybe ducks?), food, etc. in your bed, it may not be worth the investment. But let me tell you a little secret, even if the above is the case, you can still splurge on a beautiful new comforter, but only put it on when you want to/have company! I have a gorgeous comforter that I would protect with my life. We keep it in a vintage wooden chest at the food of our bed, and only get it out when we want to. The rest of the time we just use sheets, blankets and weighted blankets!
Invest in Home Accents
I am all about home accents. Vases, candles, picture frames, vintage brush sets and dishes...really anything beautiful and sweet that also serves a purpose. We have a few photos from our wedding/engagement worked in on our dressers and bedside tables, an antique brush and mirror set, various candles and vases with dried flowers. Switch up the arrangement or for a super fast facelift.
And that should do it! With these tips you should be well on your way to the bedroom of your dreams.
