While lots of people tend to do their home improvements just before they sell their house to keep the propertyÃ¢â¬â¢s value high, thereÃ¢â¬â¢s no rule that says you can only do DIY when youÃ¢â¬â¢re about to move.
So stop house hunting and start planning how to spend another night in your soon-to-be-improved home as Home Improvements Go Fast turns its attention to the most important room in the house: the bedroom.Four ways to make your bedroom less boring
When youÃ¢â¬â¢re hosting guests for the evening, you may not have many people up to visit, but that doesnÃ¢â¬â¢t mean your bedroom should be any less impressive than the other rooms in your house. How can you make your sleeping quarters as stylish as possible?
Here are four favourite ways to make your bedroom less boring:1. Get a new bed
WhatÃ¢â¬â¢s a bedroom for? A bed. ThatÃ¢â¬â¢s the most important function of a bedroom: itÃ¢â¬â¢s a place to rest your head. So you need to make sure your bed is as comfortable as possible. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s now even easier to look at potential beds thanks to online retailers, such as Revival Beds, so thereÃ¢â¬â¢s no excuse not to think about it.
Is your mattress too hard? Too soft? Is your bed too high? Too low? You may sound like Goldilocks, but donÃ¢â¬â¢t forget that 450 people die every year in America by falling out of their bed. And with 1.8 million emergency room visits also coming from falling out of bed, itÃ¢â¬â¢s important to get it just right. If not, you may end up with a bad nightÃ¢â¬â¢s sleep Ã¢â¬â or worse.2. French up the place
A bit of culture goes a long way, so donÃ¢â¬â¢t be afraid to style up the place. A candelabrum here, a vintage cabinet there, even a retro doorknob can make a difference to a roomÃ¢â¬â¢s aesthetic. See what shabby chic options are at melody maison.3. Hang some pictures
Wallpaper and paint is all very well and good, but a picture can bring a wall to life. Paintings can add a trendy contemporary flair or classical elegance to a pad, while photos can bring a modern atmosphere to a minimalist room. Once youÃ¢â¬â¢ve found the picture that matches your vibe, a quick visit to a frame-company and youÃ¢â¬â¢re all set.4. Lighten up
YouÃ¢â¬â¢ve got some new furniture, some matching pictures and youÃ¢â¬â¢re all ready to lie down in your comfy bed, but you know what really sets the mood? Lighting. Bright Lights, low lights, colourful lights, romantic lights; whatever your choice, a tinted bulb or darkened shade can change the feel of a room from formal to intimate, from exciting to peaceful.
And that concludes Home Improvements Go Fast for this summer. Whether youÃ¢â¬â¢re wiping down your windows, pottering around in the garden or beefing up your bedroom, happy DIY!.
