It is very easy for your space to not feel like a home to you. It can be prominently so especially when it is a place that you are renting. The space may be lacking the decorative elements that resonate with you and/or display your personality and style. That said, reasons for this lack-of could be that the landlord has a long list of limitations on how much you can alter the property, or it can also be that the small space that you have rented makes adding accessories or any unnecessary item a move closer to clutter.
With that said, it is still hard to deny the fact that it is a lovely feeling to have when you return to a place that is tailored to you after being out the whole day. A sanctuary that you can unwind in and feel a sense of belonging. To help bridge this feeling of detachment, we have got some clever renters editions for you to get started with for a stylish bedroom. Read on!
Cosy Things Up With Rug, Throws & Cushions
Starting with the largest piece of furniture in the bedroom, your bed is probably the easiest to start with. Getting a gorgeous bedframe would help heaps but a rug underneath or by the side of your bed can add a touch of cosiness instantly. Pick a design that is muted to help create a sense of larger space or one that makes a bold statement to draw attention to your bed. Next, toss in a decorative cushion or two to dress up your bed. Remember to pick a design that complements your room and bedsheets!
If you are looking at upping the styling game, a tip from interior stylists is to place a throw by the end of your bed for a luxury interior look.
Sprinkle Some Ambience With Plants
Nothing gives a room more life and ambience than plants. Don’t worry if living plants are too much for you to handle. Faux plants are just as amazing and they can do wonders for the one who lacks the green thumb or time. Place them on your tabletops or part of your bookshelf for an effortless boost in creating a stylish bedroom.
