7. Update Window Treatments
Updating the curtains may seem a small change but just changing the window treatments can give a revamped look to your bedroom.
8. Change the Headboard
Changing the whole bed will be quite a daunting task so go ahead and change the headboard if it’s upholstered reupholstered, or change it entirely to give a feeling of a new outlook to the whole bedroom.
The first thing you need to consider is the bed. Most people who cannot afford to replace their entire bed will at least consider changing the headboard. Getting new bedding is not only a good idea but will give your room a whole new look.

11. Add flowers and scented candles to make it a stress-free zone
Last, but not least make your bedroom a stress-free and digital-free zone to keep the harmony and calmness around. Add scented candles and fresh flowers. Add some flowers. A basic grocery store bouquet or even a stem or two plucked from the sidewalk will add color, life, and scent to your bedside. If your bedroom gets enough light, consider keeping a plant in there instead. Who doesn’t like some extra greenery and oxygen?
12. Let there be light
This fix can be as money-intensive (or not) as you’d like. Shift from lamps to sconces to save some table space. Change the standard overhead lighting to a dramatic chandelier. Add a dimmer switch. Put a lamp in a dark corner. Put candles on top of the dresser. Even if you aren’t looking to spend a dime, think about the height of your lights. For the longest time, I had a rinky-dink little lamp next to my bed that wasn’t even at the right height for reading. By putting it on top of a neat stack of books, my nighttime reading ritual was dramatically improved. For the most basic updates, spend 10 minutes thinking about what kinds of lighting make you happiest and calmest, and spend the additional 20 making it happen with the materials you have on hand.
13. Add mirrors to make the space look spacious and bigger
One important piece that should be added to any bedroom is a mirror. A mirror is the main feature of the bedroom, so make sure that it matches the rest of the décor. You can even buy mirrors that reflect the light from your bedroom, which will create a great illusion. Mirrors can also be a great way to refresh a room as they can be placed several inches off the floor.
The last few items on the list are small tables and lamps. These items will be most useful when you have a room that you want to get organized. A table lamp can help you define the furniture in a room and provide light while you are working in a particular area. Lamps will also add some needed extra space to a room.
