Did you know that you spend one-third of your life sleeping? That’s one-third of your life spent in one room! Since you spend that much of your life in one room–granted, most of it is spent sleeping–shouldn’t your room exude a relaxing atmosphere? Since January is a month that embodies that spirit of new beginnings, why not make this the month that you make small, fun upgrades to your bedroom?

Let’s take a look at a few ways you can update your bedroom without breaking the bank:

Accent Wall

Sometimes all you need is an accent wall to great some eye-catching depth and uniqueness to a room. Accent walls are extremely versatile because they can be accomplished either through a fresh coat of paint or wallpaper. If wallpaper is more your style, then consider finding one that’s a different shade than your walls but also follows the same color scheme. To really give your wall that accented look, you’ll want to invest in wallpaper that has a unique pattern to it–whether it be stripes, trellis, damask, or floral. However, if wallpaper isn’t your favorite design element, a fresh coat of paint can do the job to create a beautiful accent wall. Deciding which wall to accent can be the tricky part. Typically, you’ll want to use the wall that centers your room, or the wall that has a distinctive feature–usually, this is the wall that’s at the head of your bed or the wall that faces your bed. Depending on the layout of your room, you’ll have to decide which one would bring the best design element to your room.

New Bedding

You’ll be surprised how much a change in bedding will improve the overall atmosphere of your bedroom. Depending on the color scheme of your bedroom, consider purchasing a bedding set that adds a colorful pop to your room or even one the boasts a unique design–paisley, stripes, chevron, plaid, damask, mandala, etc. And to really give your bed some flair, add a few throw pillows that accents the colors of your bedding and walls.

Updated Bedroom Furniture

Updating your bedroom furniture is a wonderful way to give your room a new and refurbished look. Due to its versatility, oak bedroom furniture is the way to go. Not only does oak furniture come in a variety of colors and finishes, but it’s also highly durable and built to last for years. Most importantly, it doesn’t require a lot of maintenance to keep it looking polished and new. Additionally, if you ever decided to change the design elements of your room, you can easily stain, refinish, or paint your new furniture to make with the elements of your room.

New Lighting

Proper lighting can completely alter the atmosphere you want to set in your bedroom. When updating your room, consider adding depth with nightstand lamps–especially if you have overhead lighting. However, if you do have overhead lighting, you should definitely consider the benefits of installing a dimming feature. With a dimming feature, you will have full control over the brightness of your lights. So, on those gloomy rainy days, you can increase the brightness of your room, and during those beautiful sunny days, you can decrease the brightness and let the natural light flow through your room.

With these fun, inexpensive upgrades, your bedroom will soon exude the atmosphere that matches your stylish tastes and preferences.
