Cathy Counti, President of Ask Cathy Marketing Group, has some tips to help transform your room into your sanctuary AND be proud to show it off.
Tip #1: Decluttering is key. It’s well-known that decluttering helps relieve stress and anxiety. Simple is better and it’s easier to keep clean.
Tip #2: Use mirrors. If your bedroom is small and you want to make it look bigger, place mirrors in your room. This will also make your room seem bigger.
Tip #3: Use different types of lighting. Choose a mix of lights. Add lamps to an overhead fixture with table top lamps and floor lamps to create a softer look. When guests are visiting, turn off the overhead light and use only lamps for that softer look in case they wander in.
Tip #4: Add brass accents. This will not only give your room an expensive look, but it will add warmth and elegance to your room.
Tip #5: Layer your bedding with colors and pillows. The key here is to create a plush and inviting look with different layers, shades, and textures. High-end sheets really do give the luxury feel. Try using different size pillows to create the layer effect.
Tip #6: Upgrade Your head board. It is cheaper than a complete bed. Just an upholstered headboard will transform your metal bedframe into a luxurious and inviting bed. No need for the footboard.
Tip #7: Paint Your Ceiling. A light color will not only give your room a fresh, new look but will also give it a ‘pop’ factor that will make the room look larger. Try one shade lighter than the walls with a high gloss finish.
