Do you wish your bedroom was more romantic? Do you want to create a luxurious look and feel to the room, but you’re not sure how to do it? Here are five ways to make a big change – without a big budget.
1. Remove the clutter
Could it really be this simple? It really can! One of the easiest things you can do to instantly change the look and feel of a room is to remove the clutter. You’ll then be able to focus on the more romantic design elements and truly love the space you sleep in.
2. Put your storage in its place
This goes right along with removing the clutter: put your storage where it belongs. Even if you have a small room, you likely have more storage space than you think. Try utilizing the space under your bed, investing in a trunk to store items, and using baskets for miscellaneous things.
3. Pick soothing colors
As you begin the designing of your romantic bedroom, remember that the color scheme is as important as the decorations you buy. Colors have been proven to have a connection with your emotions. Pick colors that you like and that make you feel comfortable. Don’t think about the trends, ignore what’s popular – choose colors for drapes, comforters, and walls that you like and will like for years to come.
4. Focus on your drapes
You don’t have money to replace all your furniture, replacing the carpeting is expensive, and painting takes a lot of time and energy. What’s left? Draperies! Choose heavy, velvet drapes for a deeply romantic mood, or pick up some light, airy cotton curtains for a softer romantic vibe. Not only are draperies great decorations, but they control how much light – or how much starlight – you let into your room. There’s no question that goes a long way to create the romantic vibe you’re looking for.
5. Burn candles often
Many couples only think to burn candles when they want to have a special romantic evening. The reality is that candles with soothing scents can create a long-lasting vibe in your bedroom – if you burn them often. The idea is not to just create a soothing vibe for a single night, but to create a room that always makes you think of romance.
