Guest post- Spruce up your bedroom for spring!
This post is provided by Ella Mason.
Spring is a time for color and it is a perfect excuse to give your bedroom a makeover (you could also do a bit of spring cleaning in the process). Here are some tips for sprucing up your bedroom for spring.
One way to completely change the look for your bedroom is to get a new bed. You might be moving onto something more modern or you might want to simply update your current style. Take a look at divancentre.co.uk to get an idea of what is available to you.
Flowers can inject a little bit of spring into any room. You do not have to go all out and buy expensive bouquets every week but a small bunch of daffodils would go down a treat. A beautiful vase filled with flowers not only brightens a room but it can instantly make you feel more cheerful too.
Daffodils are perfect for Easter and spring as they represent re-birth. Tulips are also a great spring flower to have in your home as they last a long time and symbolize true love, happiness and affection.
Fresh bedroom linen
A bed takes up a lot of space and it can make a room look disorganized if the sheets are not in keeping with the rest of the look. Treat yourself to new bed sheets, perhaps even more than one set, and make sure they are neutral in color or match the look of your bedroom.
Refreshing the space
If there is space, consider rearranging your room. Take into account things like Feng Shui or just move things around and see how you feel about it. A new room layout can take some getting used to but give it some time and you might find that the extra space will feel much better.
Look through interiors magazines and websites to get some bedroom layout inspiration.
Modernize furniture the easy way
If you have bedroom furniture that needs updating but you can not afford to buy new items, consider just changing the hardware on drawers and cupboard doors. This can really reinvent your room and bring everything together. It might not be as good as replacing worn out furniture but it can certainly make a difference in the interim.
Find yourself some bright ornaments and accessories to bring life to your bedroom. These might be cushions, a vase, a pretty ornament or a throw. Not everything has to match; play with colors and patterns.
Get it all covered with a rug
If you have a worn out carpet but do not have the time to redo it, you can spruce up your bedroom with a rug. These look great in the main walk way between the door and the bed. If you have a large bedroom, you can put them at the end of the bed for added visual interest.
Color is completely up to you. You could go modern and either stick to something in a color block or monochrome, or you could go for something bright and patterned.
