Now that Spring has sprung, it is officially time to be out with the old and in with the new. It’s what this season is all about; new life, new beginnings and, in some cases, new makeovers of rooms in their house…
Choosing to go over a certain room in the home can seem like a daunting task, but it’s one that is extremely rewarding when you see the end product. In some cases, you don’t even need to extensively plan what you’re doing; going along with a vision in mind of what you want to achieve is often one of the best things that you can do to help stimulate your creativity with the project. Bedrooms are a great place to start as it’s the one place that is truly yours; no guests, visitors, family or friends make their way into your bedroom on a daily basis, it’s just you. Leave the living room and other communal areas for them – make your bedroom your own.
Sometimes it’s just a feng-shui of sorts that needs to happen in order for you to feel more content with your room. A simple rearrangement of furniture can definitely help open your mind, and you could find that you don’t actually want to redecorate or bring in anything new – you just need a bit of a switch up with what you already had. On the other hand, this could also show to you that you do need to invest in some new things, and is a great chance to clear yourself of any clutter that may have built up over the years.
Replacing your bedroom furniture can be an expensive task if you are looking to buy absolutely everything new, so start off with either the big or necessary things. Frank Hudson beds from Cuckooland are great examples of one of the most important features in your bedroom that could need a touch-up – your bed. Centralling the whole room redesign around one feature such as this could really help whilst planning what to do. It could be that all you needed and wanted was a new bed to make your room really feel comfortable. It is recommended that you change your mattress at least once every eight years to benefit your sleep, but not much is said about the bedframe, and we tend to leave this until it has broken before fixing and replacing it. It doesn’t necessarily have to be this way, though; a new bed frame can make the world of difference in your room, and the old bed frame (if in good working order) can go on to a new home in the form or a charity or refuge. There will always be a need for them.
Instead of looking more at the physical objects in terms of furniture, it could be that you just want the room to feel a bit brighter, a bit more ‘you’. Changing the furnishings such as curtains and blinds and repainting the room can make it look like it has been totally made-over.
