5. Accentuate the positive
Creating a new-look bedroom doesn’t have to be about new furniture, new accessories and new wallpaper. Often the things that make your bedroom a stylish and relaxing place to be are already there. So, before you commence on a radical revamp, take a good look around your space.
There might be original features that you love like wooden floors, alcoves, built in storage and big windows. You might really like your wallpaper or paint colour – and there’s definitely no need to change it if that’s the case. You might have a favourite piece of furniture like a chest of drawers or a metal bed frame that has sentimental value and that you want to incorporate in your restyled bedroom. It’s important that you think about how you can really showcase the things you love and make them part of a cohesive and put together design look.
BETTER SLEEP TIP: If you love your bedroom, it might be tempting to go to bed early. But if you lie down before you’re ready to go to sleep, you may end up lying awake worrying why you’re not falling asleep. Wait until you are properly tired before climbing into bed.
