Treating Your Bedroom Furniture:

Bedroom furniture is expensive, requiring you to fork out a lot of money from your savings. Luckily, there are many ways you can avoid this huge expenditure. You can get the furniture repaired or painted so that it can look new. For example, an outdated upholstered bed frame can be reupholstered.

Arranging Bedroom Furniture:

Even a simple tweak to the placement of your bedroom furniture can give a whole new makeover to your bedroom. They should be placed strategically so that you have ample space without compromising with style and design.

You can start with the bed that is the largest piece of furniture in the bedroom. The bed can be placed in a way so the foot is closer to the doorway than the head of the bed. In large bedrooms, the bed can be placed in the corner for a dramatic and romantic look. In case of having small to medium bedrooms, place it against the wall opposite the door, with the headboard contacting the wall. However, this position of the bed shouldn’t hamper your movement around the bed.

A piece of furniture like a long dresser, vanity, or even a chaise lounge can be placed around the bed. In a smaller bedroom, prefer saving open space and leave the wall opposite the bed free of any piece of furniture.

Place the nightstands on either side of the bed.

Tall dresser can be placed in a corner while a low dresser looks fine under a window. In a small bedroom, the dresser can be put in the closet.

Choosing the Bedding:

The bed is the focal point in the bedroom, requiring you to choose the right bedding. Maybe you look to bring in whites or bold patterns. No matter what your style is, make sure the bedding goes well with the tone of the room. To create a calming space, go for shades of blue, green, and lavender. To create a vibrant space, choose yellows, metallics, and reds. Make sure to invest in high-quality beddings as you spend most of your “at-home” time in the bedroom.


Painting can transform the look and feel of any room. It is an expensive way to boost your bedroom’s style, that’s too on a budget. Each color is associated with a particular feeling. Or you can say that each one has a psychological impact. For example, coral is energizing, while new blue and mist are serene. Many homeowners choose relaxing shades or a soothing palette of monochromatic colors.

These tips will help you achieve the best look for your bedroom:

Lighter colors make space seem bigger, while darker colors are great if you are looking to create a more intimate and smaller space.

Bold colors like coral or green are great for kids’ bedrooms.

Deep red adds warmth and calmness for a master bedroom or guest bedroom.

A chest can be used as a bedside table to create drawer space.

Hanging a bookshelf is also a practice way to create more space.
