Bedroom Remodeling

The start of a new year often brings tons of remodeling resolutions.

You might be wanting to remodel certain areas of your home, including your bedroom. If you have roommates, chances are you spend a lot of time in your private space.

If you’re looking for an upgrade, read on to learn more about bedroom remodel ideas that are easy to accomplish.

Decide on a Style Before You Start

Everyone gets the occasional itch to upgrade from time to time. With so much content and access to people’s lives on social media, it’s easy to daydream about a better life.

But upgrading your bedroom takes a bit of effort, and most importantly, money.

Before deciding to flip your room upside down, it’s important to determine why you want to renovate it.

Make a solid plan before starting. Take the necessary measurements of your room before purchasing any furniture.

The last thing you want is for your dream bed to arrive only to learn that it’s a bit too big for your space!

Declutter and Empty It All Out

One of the best things you can do before remodeling a room is starting fresh. Whether you’re planning a gut renovation or just moving around a few pieces of furniture, gutting your room of excess junk is a great place to start.

Look through cabinets and drawers for old things that may not be useful to you anymore.

Perhaps there are clothes or accessories that you have outgrown that you might consider donating. Consider going a little green by donating or hosting a clothing swap with close friends.

A renovation can only be successful with a clean slate, so get rid of anything that you don’t foresee wanting in your new room.

It can be easy to get attached and hold onto belongings. If you don’t want to let o just yet, consider renting a storage unit for your excess stuff until you’re ready to sort through it.

Start With the Walls

Once you have a blank canvas of a room to work with, start with the walls. If you want to repaint and redo the walls, this is the perfect time to do it.

Painting your walls while having your furniture still in your room is risky. You might accidentally get your paintbrush full of color on your bed or chair.

Consider all your color choices. If you want a room that will be flooded with colorful accessories, you may opt for an all-white or neutral wall color. Wallpapers are making a comeback as well. Look for floral or colorful patterns.

You might even want a chalk-paint wall where you can jot down ideas and sketches as part of your decor.

Consider the Floors

If your room has hardwood floors, you may want to check that all the boards are still in good condition. Likewise, if you have tiles, you may want to deep clean the grouts thoroughly.

If your old room had carpet, you’ll need to check that there is no mold underneath any portion. Certain areas that are dark could be vulnerable to molds, like deep in your closet.

The last thing you want is to carry dangerous mold particles into your new room.

If your furniture was sitting on your rug for a long time, it’s likely that you’ll have some discoloration from dirt and dust where you usually walk.

If you want to keep the rug, invest in a good carpet cleaning service to get your floor looking brand new.

Dress Up Your Windows

Depending on your natural light situation, you may be lucky and get a lot of direct sunlight streaming into your bedroom.

Make the most out of light by investing in decorative curtains that can make the light look dreamy.

If you spend a lot of time in your bedroom, perhaps reading a book or writing, you’ll want a light that you can work with.

If the light is too harsh and direct, consider getting blackout shades. For people who have night shifts, this can be a gamechanger.

Shades that limit the amount of sunlight entering a room can help you sleep better, both in the daytime and at night.

In the summer, they can also help keep your bedroom cool without needing to crank up the air conditioning. This will help lower your energy bills and keep the room at a livable temperature.

If your bedroom faces a garden or backyard patio, consider installing glass sliding doors. This can blend more of the natural world outside with the coziness of your bedroom.

Pick the Right Accessories

Now that you have the right foundation for a new room, picking the right furniture and accessories is the most important part.

This is what you’ll pay attention to when you enter the room. Add fixtures that complement the colors you have chosen.

Try adding some artwork on the walls. You can add personal photos or art that inspires you.

As much as the natural daylight affects your mood throughout the day, the right lighting can set the right tone at night. If you live in a northern city, chances are you’ll have a lot of night during the winter.

Get some warm lights for your evenings and avoid harsh fluorescents that can make you feel more tired.
