The new year inspires new energy, fresh ideas and a desire for lots of changes. We can become bored with the same old look and crave updated styles that resuscitate the lifeless rooms in our home. One room that is often overlooked and outdated, is the master bedroom. Its underwhelming design and antiquated accessories can make you feel anything but restful. But, with a few simple tweaks and modern additions, you can rejuvenate your room to create a tranquil retreat.
While our bed may be in perfect condition, our headboards may have a vintage vibe that is not becoming. A lot of the newer beds do not come with a headboard, so it employes opportunities for transformation with some clever ideas and creative upcycling. Wood, fabric, paint, screens, frames, shelves are just some ways to change the headboard and feel of your room.
Lamps and Light Fixtures
Lighting is an important element in any bedroom and you can completely change the complexion of your room by updating your lamps and light fixtures. Ascetically pleasing is a must, but it should also be functional. You can combine a number of different versatile options that include bedside lamps, floor lamps, sconces, mood lights, mounted fixtures, recessed lighting or chandeliers. Or if you want to be more frugal, just update your lamp or glass shades.
Sprucing up your bedroom walls with color and texture is another way to change the energy of your room. A stylish trend for 2020 is wallpaper; it can breathe some life into a boring space. Wallpaper is available in a variety of matte and shiny colors, prints, and textures. Focal walls with fabric and nature wall murals are popular and can create that pop of interest and put you in a relaxing mood.
A lot more people are consciously choosing natural bedding made from sustainable sources and bamboo is the way to go if you want to upgrade your linens. Bamboo is an earth-friendly and renewable resource that leaves a green footprint. One of the hottest trends in bedding right now is 100% Bamboo sheets from Cariloha. Bamboo is also hypoallergenic, antimicrobial, moisture-wicking, and odor-resistant. These sheets offer everything you need for a night of peaceful sleep. I’ve been using them for several years now and they are the most luxuriously soft and comfortable sheets you could ever sleep on. I use them year-round because they’re also thermal regulating.

Accent pillows are some of the most versatile accessories we can use to change the color and vibe of a room. They come in a plethora of colors, prints, sizes, and textures, and a combination thereof. With just a few cheerful or rich accent pillows, you can update your look and change the mood of your master bedroom.
I don’t see too many homes that have carpet in the bedrooms anymore. Most have laminate, hardwood or vinyl planks. So, a couple of area rugs would not only keep your tootsies warm, but it can also add a fashion element to the bedroom. A rug with a burst of vibrant colors or neutrals with texture can make an ordinary bedroom look trendy and updated. Area rugs come in lots of colors, patterns, fabrics, and sizes, so it will be easy to find one to match your bedroom decor.
Still got banal curtains from the 90s and you’re finally ready to let go? Window treatments can make a fashion statement that elevates the look of your bedroom. They are one of the most visible accessories in a room so they need consideration when it comes to color, pattern, length, and textures. Whether dramatic or subtle, sheer or shutters, you can find a style that complements your bedroom’s decor.
