8 Ways to Update Your Bedroom

By Sugandha Sarda & Hannah Deacon

A space to relax and call your own, the bedroom is an easy and inexpensive room to overhaul. Be bold with your choice of colour and use of prints, and you’ll find it easy to create a cosy space into which you can escape.

1. Create a wall feature: Brighten up plain walls by painting a coloured stripe. It will look neat and decorative, and add a feature to your room.

2. Change the lampshade: There’s no need to buy new lighting—just change the shade of your lamp for a new look that works with your scheme.


3. Arrange pillows: Place pillows symmetrically for smart and luxurious look. Your bed pillows don’t have to be under your bedspread. Place them on display, and layer other cushions, with textures and patterns, on top.

4. Add a colourful rug: A small rug will add cosiness and colour to a dull floor.


5. Use storage baskets: Use wicker baskets for spare bed linen, extra layers when it gets cold, and generally to keep your surfaces and floor tidy.

6. Introduce pattern: Choose a bedspread with a bold pattern and keep the rest of your room plain. Your bedspread will determine the colour scheme of your room and the accessories that you choose to match. Pick out a colour from the bedspread— green—as the colour of your bed linen.


7. Create a dressing table: A mirror will turn a simple chest of drawers into a dressing table. It will also make your room appear larger.

8. Bring in fragrance: Revamping a space is about how it feels as much as how it looks. Home- fragrance spray and scented candles give your bedroom a relaxing feel.
