From Dull and Drab to Cool and Chic How to Transform Your Boring Bedroom

Your home is a reflection of yourself. While everyone knows the saying, few truly understand what it means. In today’s world, where you are too focused on the hustle and bustle of daily life, your bedroom should be a space to wind down and gather your energy for tomorrow.

Most bedrooms today lack one common factor-personality. Every bedroom should show off the character of its owner. You do not have to plan an upheaval to show off your bedroom’s style. A tweak here, an accessory there, and a consultation with IEO’s top interior decorators are all you need for the perfect bedroom.

Unleash your inner artist

Your bedroom walls are a blank canvas waiting to be filled with your designs. You will be surprised to see how quickly your room changes with well-placed pieces of artwork. For more luxury in your room, choose art with golden frames that pop with contrast. If you do not want to spend money on art, a quilt, trapeze, or a collage of your favorite pictures work just as well.

Find the perfect lighting

Make ample lighting a priority. Your bedroom is not only a place to relax, but it is also where you dress up, read, and work. You need ample brightness for all occasions, where it be ambient lighting for a night in or bright lights for when you work. Fill your space with lights of all kinds, but do not go overboard with illumination. If you receive natural light, place your mirror facing the window, so that light reflects the best, also making the room look bigger.

Experiment with metals

Metals are a rather unconventional choice for bedroom transformations. Wood has always taken precedence as the material of choice in a home. However, you can go a long way in experimenting with metal, as you can play with textures and colors. Also, metals increase the sheen of your room, making it the perfect choice for people who love to live in the lap of luxury.

Mood lighting with lamps

Each room needs a bedside lamp, so there is no reason why you should not splurge a little extra to find the perfect one. Most people stay in their bedroom only at night, making it necessary for them to have lighting that is both pretty and functional. Do not use lights that are too harsh or bright, as it will interfere with your sleep. Instead, use three-way bulbs to adjust the lighting as you please. A lamp can make your room feel like new if you create a small nook with a comfortable chair, a standing lamp, and a stool.

Spruce up your headboard

An interesting headboard will draw all attention to itself, brightening your bedroom without much work. If you want to have some fun, you can stencil a headboard on the wall, or try a freehand design if you are artsy. If you already have a headboard, customize it to match with your bedsheets for a more fun vibe.

Focus on one wall
Accent walls are the go-to interior design option for a brighter room. If you have one blank wall in your room, you need nothing more to liven up your space. The easiest interior design hack for an accent wall is to cover the blank space with bright wallpaper, create a reading nook in the corner, and dot the floor with some potted plants.
