Makeover tips for your bedroom
As the seasons change, many of us feel like an interior design update; but we don’t all have the funds after a summer of enjoying ourselves. With autumn just around the corner and a summer to forget weather wise, it’s time to get warm and cosy as the seasons change. So, what better place to start than your bedroom.
Here are a few tips to give this important room a mini-makeover.

Decide on a theme and give your room a consistent look; sticking to it throughout. One of the best places to start is with your windows. Choosing high quality venetian blinds from Hillarys for your windows not only enables you to regulate the light (great for those autumn evenings), but it helps with your theme. Coordinate these with your walls, bedding and whatever accessories you have.
The walls are where the mood for your theme will really be set. Your bedroom needs to be a relaxing place, so choose colours which enhance this mood rather than hinder it. Don’t choose anything too bright. Plain white is a bit boring, so opt for something a little more colourful, but in a neutral tone. Lighter colours are also ideal to open the room out and make it appear bigger, whilst darker tones will make it feel as if the walls are closing in on you.
Get rid of that clutter
It’s likely you tackled the clutter at the beginning of spring, but it can build up fast. A cluttered room is the enemy of relaxation, so it’s important to be ruthless. Less is always more when decorating your bedroom, but if you do need to hold onto things invest in some stylish storage. If it fits in with your theme; even better.
It’s so simple, but it makes such a difference. There’s nothing like the feeling of creeping into your new sheets; you’ll never want to leave. Comfort is obviously paramount when it comes to your bedding, but you want something to tie the room together. Match your bedding to your walls, blinds and other soft furnishings. If it all works together it will appear so much more inviting at the end of a long day.
Turn the lights down low
Harsh lighting can instantly kill the mood you’ve worked so hard to achieve. Invest in some dimmers or at least some lamps and softer lighting options.
With just a few simple changes you can make your bedroom over into the relaxing space you’ve always dreamed of.
