6 Ways To Easily Update And Upgrade Your Bedroom

It happens. You look around one day and think, "When did my bedroom get so blah?" In the room that almost no one sees but close family, it can be easy to give all the attention to other, more public, spaces of the home.

The good news is that you don't have to redo the entire bedroom to give it a fresh feel. Small changes can have big impact, and you can do them yourself in a weekend or less.


You can completely change not just the look, but also the feel, of your bedroom with a coat of paint. But it has to be the right coat of paint. Some colors aren't recommended for the bedroom because of the psychological affect they can have on people in the room.

"When picking your bedroom decor, don't go off just looks - if you want to get more sleep or have more sex, that is. A survey conducted by Travelodge revealed that certain shades can stimulate or relax sleepers, and their effects last beyond nighttime," said House Beautiful.

The hotel chain, just one of many institutions that have weighed in on the psychology of color and how it affects bedroom habits, found that:
  • "People with blue bedrooms got more sleep than any other color."
  • Yellow "stimulates the nervous system, encouraging relaxation."
  • Green "was the third best color palette for sleep, and 22 percent of respondents who slept in a green bedroom reported waking up feeling upbeat and positive."
  • "People with purple bedrooms are the least rested of all, getting on average a measly five hours and 56 minutes sleep per night. The rich color is actually very mentally stimulating, making it difficult to switch off after a busy day and potentially causing vivid dreams or nightmares."
  • Light brown had a surprisingly sexy effect on respondents. "Romantics, take note. Couples who sleep in a bedroom with caramel décor have sex three times per week on average, more than any other color."

Knobs and pulls

You can change the whole personality of a piece, and the room, just by changing the hardware. This plain white dresser got an infusion of chic with brass rings.

Of course, you don't have to stop at hardware. This dresser started out as a plain old IKEA Rast, and got quite the makeover.


How's that overhead light looking? Pretty dated, you say? Swap it out for something more modern and give yourself something pretty to look up to. If you are the type who needs a fan in your bedroom but don't want to sacrifice style, you'll love this chandelier that incorporates fan blades.

While you're updating your lighting, think about your side tables, too. And while you're thinking about them, how about having a little fun with the process? Adding a little bit of whimsy, like with the Gold Geo Squirrel Accent Lamps from World Market makes things interesting in the bedroom and give you a couple of unique focal points. Even if it's only you and your partner who ever see them, they're bound to make you smile every time you flip the switch.


A rug in the bedroom reads "comfort" while providing another layer of décor. Don't be afraid to lay it right down on top of your wall-to-wall carpet for a luxurious look.

Duvet cover

No need to change out all your bedding. A new duvet cover can give you a whole new look. Places like Bed Bath & Beyond and Tuesday Morning are great choices for linens. We also love the Nate Berkus Collection at Target. This Embroidered Diamond Duvet & Sham Set is super soft, super stylish, super affordable ($72 for Queen), and brings a relaxing hotel-like feel to the bedroom.

Window coverings

Nothing brings a room together quicker and easier than new drapes. It's also a great way to introduce pattern in a space that may be devoid of it or that needs a punch of interest. These drapes draw the eye toward the windows and greenery outside, and also liven up a chaise that could have gotten lost in a sea of neutrals without the framing of the outdoor space.

    My name is Olivia Hanna From Australia. I am really pleased with this service Dr. Trust render to me. I am one of those people who said, “I’ll never call a psychic or a magician or whatever” to help me with my problems – least of all my love problems, but I reached the point where I knew I needed some guidance, and I’m so glad I found this man called Dr. Trust I never in a million years would have thought I’d be writing a letter like this, but when I nearly lost Andrew in one of our stupid,fights (he broke up with me), I thought I had lost everything.i cry all day and think that he will never come back to me again.i read a testimony by a man called Taylor Borg about him saying that how Dr. Trust help him to get back is EX wife within 48 hours.I quickly email him. He did a (Lover spell) for me. 48 hours later, my ((Ex Boyfriend)) came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal and our love is now stronger that he can't do without being with me. I and my boyfriend are living together happily again. Dr. Trust is the best online spell caster that is powerful and genuine. And when I was at my most desperate,he didn’t take advantage of me. You performed a very good service for a person in true need. I don’t know how you did it, or how this magic works, but all I know is, IT WORKS!! Andrew and i are happily back together, and I’ll always be grateful to Dr. Trust email him for any kinds of help is very capable and reliable for help or

I have been trying to be more positive about my relationship with my boyfriend, it seems like it has taken forever. Another lady took my Fiancee away from me and they both relocated. i cried and searched for him to come back but he refused to take my calls nor return my messages. My friend introduced me to a powerful spell caster called Dr Keke Odin who helped me cast a very powerful love spell that brought back my Fiancee in 24 hours. i was amazed and surprised when my fiancee called to beg me for forgiveness all because of the powerful love spell of Dr Keke Odin. dont fail to Contact Dr Keke through the following means if you have any Marrital or Relationship problem. his contact information are
