Spruce Up Your Bedroom Decor in 4 Steps

Staff Writer · Dec 17, 2010

Bedroom decor is something that you’ll want to spruce up every now and then. Since it’s the one room in the house that you can truly call your own, keeping it looking as put together as possible will only be beneficial to you. Just as cleaning your apartment can give you a new lease on life, so can sprucing and changing up your bedroom. Here’s how to do it in just four simple steps.

Step One: Clear Out the Clutter

Clutter tends to accumulate faster than you expect, and can make any room feel crowded and dingy. Sometimes sprucing up your bedroom is as simple as clearing the clutter out. Beyond any regularly scheduled bedroom cleaning you do, schedule in decluttering sessions every month or so. Toss or donate any items that are unnecessary or that have begun to accumulate. Your room will look better afterward.

Step Two: Switch Up Your Wall Decor

If you live in an apartment that allows you to paint, think about changing out the color on one or more of the walls. If you’re one of those people living in an apartment that will not allow you to paint, thinking about adding some color and life through wall art instead.

It doesn’t have to be expensive and you don’t have to be an expert artist to make something interesting to hang on your walls. You can buy several inexpensive canvases from an art store. Using either oil or acrylic paint (acrylic will dry faster), paint the canvases different complementary colors that go with your overall bedroom color scheme. You can be as creative as you like. Hang the canvases as a cluster above your bed or over your desk. It’s a simple way to add more visual interest to your room and spruce up your decor.

Step Three: Change Your Bed Linens

The blanket or comforter on your bed is likely the focus of your bedroom. The remainder of your bedroom decor was likely planned around your bed linens. You can easily spruce up your decor by finding something new to put on your bed. It’ll give your room a whole new look. You can also add in different sizes and types of pillows—or minimize them if you already have a few.

Step Four: Add In a New Accessory or Two

Just like a wardrobe, a bedroom is most easily spruced up by switching out some accessories. Accessories don’t break the bank, yet they can create a completely different look. If you’re wanting to spruce up your bedroom decor, think about purchasing a new bedside lamp or rug for the floor. Placing some new frames on your bookshelf or placing a funky new pillow on reading chair in the corner all add nice new touches to the space.

Sprucing up your bedroom is simple and can be done at any time. Follow these steps until you come up with something that pleases you.
