Extra lighting is so important to making a bedroom inviting. If you want that wow factor, the first step is to have accent lighting on top of the main ceiling light. Mix it up when shopping for lamps, buy floor lamps, end table lamps and desk lamps! You can even go the extra mile and choose a unique and quirky lamp just to spice things up! The reason why accent lighting is so important is because it gives your room more dimension, and highlights the favorite parts of your bedroom!
Now if you have a very small bedroom, you can disregard this section! Window seating comes in handy if you always have your friends over, and you want to your room to look more intentional! It also gives you a place to read, or a place to drink your coffee in the morning in privacy! Window seating is also inviting because all you need is two chairs & a window, and your room looks hotel worthy!
Having a bed without an end table just makes a bedroom feel incomplete. Make sure you add great end table pieces, like a vase of flowers or cute picture frames! Going back to my first section about lighting, a statement lamp would be the winner of your end table! You can even make over a thrift store end table to give it a vintage look!
I am currently obsessed with tufted headboards! They just make any room so chic and high end! However, if you want to go with a tapestry that is super cute too. Also a wooden headboard gives any bedroom a trendy rustic look. Headboards make your room more inviting by pulling the room together, which makes it look complete! You’ll day dream about your bed all day long, looking forward to being in your room!
This is where the fun comes in! Get some ultra chic wall decorations, hang up some curtains and buy an area rug! You can even think of adding a plant to give your room a more natural look. You will look a pro incorporating the right accent features. It’s important to make sure all of your accent pieces are cohesive. It makes your bedroom confusing if your decorations are all over the place. An easy way to make your decorations more cohesive is to make a specific color palette. There are plenty of online resources that can generate one for you. It’s always a good idea to Pinterest some great rooms to get some inspiration. When you’re all done making over your room, throw a super corny slumber party with your most important girlfriends to celebrate!
I’m pretty sure you’re imagining your future fabulous room, and feel overwhelmed! Separate it into different days and save up money! Invest in yourself, you deserve it! Comment below any things you are thinking of adding to your room!
