Bedroom Makeover: 4 Ways to Revamp Your Space

Bedrooms are a sanctuary, right? Well, they’re meant to be, anyway. If your boudoir is in need of a revamp, this post has come to your rescue. I’m sharing a bedroom makeover performed by TLC reader and style master Cathy Elsmore – and the results are pretty amazing, as you’ll see!

Cathy transformed the space using her signature style – bold and colourful, which is just what her clients were after. Cathy’s gorgeous bedroom makeover actually contains four universal styling ideas – that you can implement in your own space without spending too much cash!

Four simple ways to transform your bedroom:

1. Bedding is Everything
The bed in this space is rather imposing, but by decking it out in vibrant soft furnishings, Cathy has made it the focal point of the space. The warm colours also go a long way to make the room feel cosy and inviting. “I really wanted to bring a warm, welcoming orange tone into this space,” Cathy says. “It’s perfect to cozy up the room”. 

2. Wall Art is a Must
Without something on the wall above the bed, the eye has nowhere to travel. By matching art to the colours in the bedding, Cathy has kept the look consistent. The art is actually fabric in frames; one of Cathy’s signature statements and a very easy one to implement if you’re on a budget!

3. Metallics Reflect Light
Bringing in some metallic finishes into the room was a smart idea as they bounce light around the space. “The pendant lights are from Beacon lighting and they really add that touch of sophistication to the room,” Cathy explains. Pendant lights also allow for more space on the bedside table – which is always helpful in a bedroom.

4. Floating Furniture Creates Space
If you have the ability to lift furniture off the floor, it’ll go a long way in making the room feel larger. Here, Cathy has fixed the bedside tables to the wall. She also chose a lighter finish for these pieces to balance the weight of the bed. “I chose the birch cabinets from IKEA as their existing bed was black and I needed to use a lighter tone in the room”.
