Home Improvements Go Fast: A Room with a View

While lots of people tend to do their home
improvements just before they sell their house to keep the property’s value
high, there’s no rule that says you can only do DIY when you’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 you’re hosting guests for the evening, you may
not have many people up to visit, but that doesn’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

What’s a bedroom for? A
bed. That’s the most important function of a bedroom: it’s a place to rest your
head. So you need to make sure your bed is as comfortable as possible. It’s now
even easier to look at potential beds thanks to online retailers, such as Revival
, so there’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 don’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, it’s important to get it just right. If not, you may end up with a bad
night’s sleep – or worse.

2. French up the place

A bit of culture goes a
long way, so don’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 room’s
aesthetic. See what shabby chic options are at melody

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 you’ve found the
picture that matches your vibe, a quick visit to a frame-company
and you’re all set.

4. Lighten up

You’ve got some new
furniture, some matching pictures and you’re all ready to lie down in your
comfy bed, but you know what really sets the mood? Lighting. Bright
, 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 you’re wiping down your windows,
pottering around in the garden or beefing up your bedroom, happy DIY!
