Updating Your Bedrooms and Bathrooms



When you live in a place for a long time it’s easy to fall into a rut and not notice when things have become drab or outdated, especially in rooms that are not common areas. Since we spend almost a third of our life sleeping it simply makes sense to make the bedrooms as attractive, functional and restful as possible. When planning on refreshing a bedroom it’s a good idea to consider a lot of  bedroom décor and designs and designs because you can make a big difference even by doing something as simple as rearranging the furniture.

Mirrors are another great way to instantly change the look of a room – with a new bathroom or bedroom mirror  you can open up the space and make it feel larger than it really is but you can also use mirrors to reflect light from a window or skylight or to cover an unsightly area.  Mirrors need not be large – one interesting idea is to invest in five or six small mirrors in interesting shapes and sizes or beautiful frames and create a collage on one wall. Another option is to place two large mirrors on opposing walls so they reflect one another; this is both visually interesting and quite practical when you want to see an outfit from all sides.

There’s no hard and fast rule that a bed must be placed directly against a wall – one innovative way to change the look of a bedroom is to float the bed in the middle of the room and place a dress or bookcase behind the headboard which can be accessed from the other side. Another idea is to place the bed on an angle in a corner of the room; a lamp or plant can be placed in the corner behind the headboard or it can be left empty for an airy feeling.
