Let’s face it: it’s only natural to let your bedroom décor fall to the wayside after you become a new mom.
Maybe you’ve accumulated clutter from the baby. Perhaps you simply haven’t had any time to yourself to clean or tidy up. Maybe you’ve got older children who also leave a lot of mess or insist in sleeping in your bed too. (Although an Harkla’s anxiety blanket can be a huge help in getting your child a full night’s rest.)
Regardless, becoming a mom shouldn’t mean sacrificing your own comfort at home. Make it a goal to revamp your bedroom to ensure that you’re getting the highest sleep quality possible and that you’re more likely to feel fabulous in your own space. After all, what good is your bedroom if you don’t feel comfortable in it?
Thankfully, redecorating doesn’t need to happen overnight, nor does it have to put a huge dent in your wallet. In fact, sometimes it’s the small and subtle changes that make for the coziest spaces. Regardless of your budget or experience with décor, consider the little investments you can make to create the most comfortable bedroom possible.
There’s perhaps no better way to transform a bedroom than by investing in a new set of blinds. Seriously. Basking in the warm glow of natural light can be an absolute pleasure; meanwhile, being able to truly black out artificial light at night can instantly improve your quality of sleep.
For example, installing cellular shades is a relatively simple DIY project that you can knock out over the weekend. Such shading solutions are stylish and cost-effective, representing a win-win when it comes time to redecorate.
If you feel like you’re stuck with a bunch of clutter on the floor, why not stylize your odds and ends with some smarter storage?
Whether through shelving units above your bed or IKEA-style box storage solutions, it’s important to make sure that you keep as much off the floor as possible (think: this also makes your bedroom friendlier to your baby). Sure, it may take some time to get rid of some of your junk; however, you may be surprised how much space you can save when you invest in some shelf space and take out the trash.
As noted earlier, lighting has a direct impact on our moods. If you feel that your bedroom is down in the dumps, something as simple as replacing your current lighting fixtures with brighter bulbs or looking into a new bedside lamp may be worth your time. While you don’t necessarily need to wash your room out with light, you should be able to comfortably be able to read in bed, for example.
Maybe it’s cliché to say that a proper rug can “tie the room together,” but it’s true enough. Whether you want to splash some color into your space or simply accent your existing color scheme, a large rug can help give your bedroom a more sophisticated look. Likewise, new rugs are a time-saving alternative to projects such as painting the walls which can be both tedious and costly for newbies.
Being a fashionable mom isn’t always about what’s on the outside: never neglect the interior of your home and take special care to feeling fabulous in your own bedroom. By sticking to the aforementioned tips, you take the first steps toward ensuring your comfort and turning your room into something more modern.
