One of the most disappointing things is to stand there in your room at the end of a long renovation and realize that your room doesn’t quite feel like home yet. Even after all the new furniture and the wall paint and the carefully coordinated design, your room might end up feeling alien and new.
Most times, the feeling goes away after a few days when you’ve had the chance to adjust to your new surroundings, but that’s not always the case either. Your new room not feeling like home might just be a result of a hasty redesign or a bad mattress. Think about it – how would your room feel finished if you don’t even feel comfortable with it yet? Look through articles like this US-Mattress blog article to see if you really have the right bed for yourself.
If you’re sure that you do, then you need to keep reading for steps you can take to finally feel like your master bedroom is done!
Installing artwork in your bedroom space makes it more interesting. It adds that personal touch to a space that your room might be missing, which means it might also be the one thing that can help you with your dilemma.
The art doesn’t have to be too fancy or expensive – all you need is to make sure that you like the art and it has true meaning to you. You can even DIY your own wall art and hang it up around the room. People with determination might be able to fashion small figurines with clay to keep on the bedside table, or paint one of their favorite quotes on a canvas or cardboard, frame it, and hang that up.
Another suggestion is to pick out a soft board and hang it on one of the walls. This way you can pin up any old photos, art, and posters on it without making the room too messy. Statement pieces of art on the wall right behind the bed would definitely be a bold choice to finish off the whole look, and a large mirror with a stylish frame can be a great option too.
Plants and nature have a way of making any place feel like home, and livening up any interior space. Bring in some pretty rocks and twigs from the garden to arrange them on top of the fireplace (if you have one), or plant a windowsill garden. Strawberry plants or flowers would be perfect for it! If you have a room on the bigger side, you can bring in some indoor plants and put them in the corners.
This will make your room feel more natural and homey, and even tie in your whole interior design together.
Bring in Something You Love
Before you go out and pass judgement about how your room is still missing something. Bring in all your books, clothes, stuffed toys, favorite pillows, and posters. Chances are, by the time you’ll be done putting that all back in their original place, yoru room will feel like yours again.
For a short while, keep your favorite plushie on the bed and keep a few books on the bedside table. Hang your jewelry on a rack on the wall, and make sure not to replace the pillows you’re used to sleeping on.
These are the things that make a place feel like home way more than the color of the walls and the arrangement of the furniture, so be careful about moving it all around.
Like we mentioned before, even after taking all these steps it might still take you a while to get used to your new surroundings, so hang in there and don’t give up on your dream bedroom just yet!
