Your bedroom is a special place. It is a space of comfort, familiarity and where you spend (or at least should be spending) at least 7 hours of your 24 hour day. There are those nights when you want to read a book, or those mornings when you want breakfast in bed. Whatever the occasion, your bedroom should provide a setting that makes you want to stay there all day, even though you shouldn’t.
Some bedrooms are left white, keeping the room spacious with a sense of freshness. Others opt for a darker, cozier situation. Whichever style you prefer, you can use wall decor to bring a bit of life and a bit of your personality into the room. There are all sorts of ways to bring the bedroom walls to life, and not all of them require a paintbrush or are off-limits to renters.
All you need is a few liters of paint, a good-quality paintbrush or paint roller, and an afternoon of work to create bedroom walls with a whole new look. Keep in mind that if you want good results, it is best to take time to do the prep work of washing the walls, patching holes, taping off areas you don't want paint applied, and protecting the floors and any nearby furniture with covering.
Depending on the mood you want to bring, you can paint all four walls or just the one. All four walls will immediately make the room look bright and full. One wall gives a modern touch, is less risky (in case after one wall you see that the paint color was all wrong, you just have to fix one and not all four).
You can also get a little creative by stamping prints onto your wall with the paint. Sponges or pre-cut stamps of shapes such as geometric shapes, nature-filled images of plants and flowers or cute feathers and animals can be used. A bigger project, but also very effective is to add stripes to the wall above the headboard. Take masking tape and create the frame for the stripes so that if you go over it with paint, the line will be straight and neat. You can go for bright colors creating a fun style, or go for a more sophisticated look like navy blue.
If painting is not your preferred past time activity or talent you can use wallpaper. Wallpapers come in a variety of choices. You can cover the whole wall with a full-length print, or you can buy a largely printed illustration or Bansky like graffiti to stick. Today’s paper is simpler to attach and remove. No longer are we left with traditional floral patterns found in old homes. You can find patterns from light and soft to dramatic and strong.
Believe it or not, you can also use fabric instead of wallpaper to cover your walls. In addition to this, the fabric is easy to remove when your lease is up or you when you need a change. Choose a lightweight cotton print that you love, and use starch fabric stiffener to stick the fabric to the walls.
Tapestries are an even safer way to go than painting or wallpapers. While you'll need specific tools and tapestry hanging hardware to get the job done, you can buy a tapestry and test it out on the wall above your headboard to see if it fits. The test is easy with pins holding the tapestry and doing the least damage possible to the wall. If you decide that the tapestry fits, you can keep it attached as is, or place a horizontal rod above the bed and hang the tapestry there. If, in the end, the tapestry is not a fit for the setting, you can hang it somewhere else in the room, keep it as a blanket or cover for the living room or outside for picnics and the beach.
The hanging paintings in the bedroom is nothing new. However, choosing the right painting can be difficult. It all comes down to the tone and feeling you want to have in your bedroom. Beachy, sandy colors? Or midnight purples and blues? A happy scene, or melancholy?
Another possibility is to get a few blocks of art created by the same artist or artisan. Having blocks of art allows you to display the images above your headboard or across the whole bedroom. A tip is to keep them symmetrical with the same distances above, underneath and on each side.
