Easy bedroom transformations
Simple and stylish bedrooms
Transform a boring bedroom into a stylish and chic sleep-inducing boudoir by adopting our easy ideas. Simply by changing the room colour, de-cluttering or adding some new bedlinen, you can instantly update your space and be assured of a more aesthetically pleasing resting place.
Coordinate colours by reflecting the latest interior trends to achieve an instant update. Add pops of colour to muted room schemes such as cerise pink lampshades or citrus cushions. Stencil a wall with your favourite design, such as a bird cage to add a stylish focal point — or add a framed screen print or striking canvas above the bed.
Create some old-style glamour at your bedside table, adding a bevelled mirror and accessories such as glass jars and perfume bottles for a look that oozes vintage style. Transform your bedroom with pretty new bedlinen in feminine pastel shades and layer linen throws with a pile of cushions with a mix of textures such as velvet and silk.
Fresh white walls will add to the feeling of space in a room and there is nothing like a patterned feature wall to create a focal point to a bedroom. Just add a glass chandelier for a showstopping centrepiece or a large mirror with a whitewashed frame will make the room appear more spacious.
For an easy window transformation, dress windows with curtains in your favourite fabric, complementing the theme of the room. Velvet floor-length curtains create a glamorous boudoir effect, or neutral linen drapes and blinds add a fresh spring feel to the bedroom.
De-cluttering is an easy and effective room transformation. Stow away washing in a chic laundry basket, or choose pretty storage boxes for all those unsightly bits and bobs. Or why not fit a bookshelf above the bed with all your favourite books so you only need to reach above your head for a new read.
Bedroom with framed print
Hang a striking canvas or framed screen print above the bed for an instant update. Add soft furnishings in co-ordinating shades to complete the look.
