Bedrooms are essential spaces in the home. They provide a refuge for family members to relax and recharge after a hard day of work, school, or other responsibilities.
The bedroom is also where many people go when they want some quality time alone. To make this space function well for you, it’s important to organize your belongings correctly and have a sense of style to fit your needs!
Here are 10 ideas on how you can improve your bedroom today:
1) Add curtains
Curtains serve multiple purposes in the bedroom; they help insulate against cold drafts during winter months while providing privacy from outside traffic at night.
It’s also worth noting that curtains can be made of any fabric imaginable, so use a material that is easy to care for and matches the décor of your bedroom.
Curtains can create a more intimate feel in your bedroom and help make it look larger than it is. You can create this look by adding curtain panels to the sides of your bed or in front of a window.
Measure your windows or bed space before you start so that you know precisely what size curtain panels work best with your needs.
To put up panel curtains, attach two rods in opposite corners of the window frame or at each side of the headboard and then fasten hooks to hold them together.
Once this has been done, slide each rod into its respective bracket on top.
This will allow you to pull open and let close as needed with no effort.
Adding curtains to your bedroom adds:

2) Add picture frames
Picture frames are a great way to show off your favorite memories of better times and people. The trick here is to sketch out a design beforehand, so you know where to place them.
It is also important to remember that, even though these frames are stationary, you can rotate now them and then to keep the décor looking fresh.
Some reasons you want to add picture frames to your bedroom are:
they are an excellent way to show off memories of friends and family members that you hold dear

Decorate with pictures from childhood, weddings, birthdays, holidays. Anything personal is perfect.
Try adding frames made of materials like wood or metal. You can even find frames that look like they’re floating on the wall.
3) Add décor pieces
One of the best ways to style up your bedroom quickly is by adding some décor pieces like mirrors, lamps, or pictures.
The trick with this is that you should have a color scheme when picking out what goes on the walls and where you would like to put the décor pieces. For instance, a white wall with green accents would compliment an orange lamp next to the bed.

Rugs come in many different materials, so be sure you know the pros and cons of each before buying a new rug.
5) Add a headboard
A good headboard can be the perfect place to store your favorite books, music player, or pillows.
It is also worth noting that these items are often expensive, so if you don’t want to spend money on them, then it might not be worth investing in this feature for the bedroom.

6) Add an armoire
Armoires are a great way to keep clothes, shoes, and other minor items from being lost all over the bedroom.
They also make for a marvellous piece of furniture in the room.
Armoires can come with either an open shelf or closed doors.
If you’re looking for some storage space in your bedroom and want an alternative to a dresser, adding an armoire is one option worth considering.
Keep these tips in mind when shopping for an armoire:
Do I have enough room?
What color should it be?
Should it come with closed shelves?
Will it match my other furniture?
How many drawers do I need?
7) Add a shelf
Adding a shelf to your bedroom is a great way to add more storage to the room for things like books and clothes.
It can also give the space in your bedroom a more spacious feel because it will remove some of the furniture from its floor area.
If there is less room for clutter on the ground level, this gives much-needed breathing room to other areas of your home.
Shelves are a practical way to use vertical space in your bedroom, and they can be used as an accent piece or the focal point of the room. You must measure before buying anything, though, so that it fits into your space.
You’ll also need to make sure there is enough clearance below (or above!) shelves for any items stacked on them.
Keep these tips in mind when adding a shelf to your bedroom:
How will the shelf be accessed?
Where should it go in the room?
Do I need to worry about clearance space below or above?
What materials are available for shelving units, and which is best for my budget and needs?
8) Install a charging station
Many people these days are using their phones as alarm clocks, but if you’ve been relying on your phone for other things such as checking email or social media, then it can drain the battery.
Therefore, having a simple spot to charge your devices at night will be very helpful.
There’s no need to search around the room for power outlets anymore and worry about cords getting tangled with each other. A shelf near the bed would work perfectly here, too.
Bringing technology into traditional furniture design also has its benefits: by integrating chargers into shelves, tables, and desks, we have found that this new generation of furnishings not only looks excellent but highly functional too – they’re more than just pretty surfaces.
Think about these things when you’re installing a charging station.
Where would the charging station go?
Should I place it near my bed or somewhere else in the room?
What material should it be made from for a harmonious look with other furniture pieces in the bedroom?
How many outlets should there be available to charge several devices at once, and what types of power sources are they compatible with (i.e., USB)?
It’s also worth noting that you may need an electrician to come and make sure everything is up to code before installation.
9) Sort your clothes
One of the many benefits of sorting your clothes is that it can help you declutter your house.
We all know the feeling of waking up in the morning and not finding something clean to wear.
This is especially true if you have several people living with you or sharing your space; it’s tough to keep things organized.
It’s easy enough just to sort clothes by type (shirts – shoes – jeans), but also try sorting according to color for extra effect.
Here are some ideas for sorting your clothes:
Sort by type (shirts, pants, dresses)
Sort according to color
Sort by season or weather condition
Sort by last use
Sort according to outfit (pack your bag before you go out)
Sort by activity – what clothes do you use for what activities?
10) Use a shoe rack
If your bedroom closet is never big enough to store all of your shoes, installing a shoe rack will help.
A shoe rack is a great way to organize your shoes. The top part of the rack has spaces for dress shoes, sneakers, sandals, and boots. The bottom part of the rack has lots of shelves for heavier shoes.
Some racks even have wheels so you can roll them from one place to another or keep them in the mudroom when they’re not being used.
Organizing your shoes with a shoe rack will free up space on your closet floor and make it easier to find lost items.
Here are several types of shoe racks:
Freestanding racks: these have a metal frame with four legs and two poles. These stands can be put on any flat surface, like the floor or the top of your dresser
Wall-mounted shoe organizers: if you don’t want to stand your shoes up at all times and prefer them lying down, this type is perfect for you. They’re also suitable for those who live in small spaces because they take up less space than freestanding versions
Bathroom-style shoe racks are great when you need more storage but have little room – plus, they work well for items that aren’t as slippery, like loafers or flip-flops. This type hooks onto the back of bathroom door frames (or other door frames)
Garment rack: not only can you use this to hang your clothes, but it’s also great for storing shoes. The best thing about garment racks is that they have lots of hooks, so there are a variety of different options in how you want them arranged – perfect for those who like things organized in order by type or color.
They also come with wheels, which makes transporting and rearranging much easier.
It’s hard to find time for things like home improvement in a world where we are always on the go and plugged in.
