Too much furniture in this girl’s bedroom make what is actually a spacious room feel small and cramped. Removing some of the smaller pieces and arranging the bed and night stand on the wall next to the window helps open the space. We opened the curtains to let in the natural light and make the window feel as large as possible. A neatly made bed and simple bedside accessories are all that’s needed to complete the staging.
This spare bedroom had become a dumping ground for extra linens and off-season clothes. To convert this space to an inviting retreat for overnight guests, we replaced the mismatched bedside tables with an upholstered chair from another room and placed a round table and table lamp in the corner in place of the office-style floor lamp. It took us a while to decide which lamps to buy, but after looking on websites like lumination.co.uk, we quickly made our minds up! I think the table lamp looks gorgeous!
This room can get quite dark during the autumn and winter so we also decided to install a brand new ceiling light. Honestly, it has made such a huge difference! The old light always used to flicker and buzz, so we decided to contact an electrician to get our wiring fixed and to install a brand new light. Our electrician was absolutely fantastic and got the issue sorted out so quickly. The new ceiling light is so bright and it has really freshened up the entire room. Accordingly, if you are thinking about installing any new lights in your home, I would recommend researching electricians in your area online and browsing websites like this one: hometeamelectric.com/city-page/desert-hot-springs/.
As you know I am a huge perfectionist though and there was so much more that we wanted to do to this room. I remember reading that chrome table lamps are universal for most decors so I was thinking of getting one similar for this room. But we then came to the decision that simple was best. So, for now, our brand new ceiling light and the table lamp will have to suffice!
If I could I would have loved to have redecorated the whole thing and got all new furniture for this room, but I think I’ll save that for when I decide to redo the master bedroom. So anyway, we just added sheet brown window panels. Adding sheer brown window panels helps to soften the window and give it less of a basement feel. Coordinating bed linens, pillows and other accessories help to create a relaxing and soothing ambiance.
I think the end result is great though! Like I couldn’t be happier with this room. I just have to make sure that I don’t turn it back into a dumping ground. I have to try and break that habit, otherwise, I’ll just keep doing it. I don’t think I will want to turn it into a dumping ground though, now that we’ve updated it all. Because just look at how great it is! I’m so proud of the finished results and I can’t wait for people to actually stay over. I bet they’ll feel like they are in a hotel room or something (or at least I hope they feel that way). Anyway, at least this room is done and all sorted. Now I’ve just got to find another project to keep myself busy with.
In staging this spacious master bedroom, we added a bed skirt and some pillows to dress up the bed, along with a nightstand with a lamp to add light and functionality. The desk was accessorized and positioned to face into the room. Extra items like the TV and luggage were put out of sight to make this space an inviting and relaxing retreat.
Little was needed to take this guest bedroom from “so-so” to “wow!” We started with a smaller bed to make the room feel less crowded, and dressed it with simple bed linens to complement the lavender walls. The dresser drawer was replaced, and accessories placed on top inviting those who enter this room to RELAX.
New bed linens, window panels, and a warm paint color to replace the 80’s wallpaper went a long way to update this master bedroom. We moved the tall dresser to the far wall and added a small bedside table to give the room balance. The laundry basket full of clothes found it’s rightful home in the closet. Framed wall art above the bed gives the room a finishing touch.
