As we start a journey through the home from a decorating perspective, what better place to start than the room you spend the most time in, the bedroom.  The room where you wake up to begin your day, where you go to put the day behind you at night, and the room that is easiest to escape to when you just need a break from everyday life.  A lot of the time the bedroom gets left off the remodeling and updating plans. People often think there are a lot of spaces in the house other people are going to see, but when you realize it is the room you spend the most time in, shouldn’t it be top of the priority list?

The best part of redecorating a bedroom is there are so many elements that can be changed and updated.  From a full renovation to a simple change, there are a lot of ways to make adjustments to the room depending on your budget and the time you want to invest in the project.  A full renovation can tackle changing the flooring, wall color, and even purchasing a new set of furniture. You can change out an old carpet to fresh new hardwoods for a huge impact.  You can purchase new furniture to replace hand me down furniture or old pieces to refresh your room in a matter of minutes.  Or, if you are looking for smaller changes, you can switch up the soft treatments in the room – think bedding, window treatments, or area rugs. Updating a bedding set from dull and updated to bright and colorful will instantly make an impact on the room.  Changing out the window treatments, whether you invest in new blinds or shades, or just change out the curtains, can instantly reshape the look of the room.

The key element to keep in mind when looking at your room is that you want a place to relax. You want to wake up relaxed, go to bed in a peaceful place, and have a sanctuary to escape to when the hustle and bustle of daily life gets in the way. With that in mind, simplicity is usually the best rule of thumb.
