7 Ways to Redo Your Room

Smith Home Security Blog


A little creativity is all it takes to make your bedroom stand out. Here are 8 tips that will help you decorate your bedroom.

#1 Focus: Make a point the focus for your room. Whether it’s your bed or upholstered windows seat that you move the eye towards. You can even draw attention to the area above your bed or even your closet. Make sure that particular spot grabs attention. Accentuate with throw pillows or different colored decor to emphasize the area.

#2 Mirrors: These can work magically to make your room seem larger and add more depth and decoration. Use them strategically to enhance the sense of spaciousness. Try taking a large, framed mirror and lean it against the wall instead of hanging it for a relaxing touch.

#3 Paint: Paint a single wall a different color. It can dramatically contrast the color than the rest of the room, or simply be a few shades lighter or darker. This will add dimension to your room. A touch of wallpaper or painted pattern will draw positive attention to that specific region of the room.

#4 Theme: Choose a theme for the room. It can be anything based on your creative choice and personality. Be aware of your color choices and that they compliment each other, even if they’re contrasting colors. Whether you choose a theme of monochromatic colors, a spread of vintage décor, or your displaying your collection of butterfly figurines (or a mixture of your entire personality) consider the placement to display your theme and personality most effectively.

#5 Personality and customization: Add some features that lend your space a unique touch. If you’re a movie buff or obsessed with a TV show, add posters or fan memorabilia to share your loyalty. If you’re into a more eclectic look, add some pieces by adding some hand crafted or painted objects as decoration. Oversized artwork is another good touch to any room and a fantastic conversation piece when you have guests over.

#6 Candles: Candles are an inexpensive way to enhance the ambience of any room. Not only do they make a room smell sweet and clean, but also they lend a certain charm to an otherwise plain looking area. Check out some DIY articles on making your own candles and creating your own scents.

#7 Scale: Another very important aspect of decorating a room is to scale everything according to the size of your room. This will ensure that your room appears sleek, clean and not cluttered. A cluttered room can suppress the positive aspects of the space and the decor will be marred.

Your bedroom can speak a lot about your personality. Make sure your ultimate refuge is as unique as you by following these simple tips and tricks.
