How long have you had the same curtains or blinds?
Changing them up is a simple way to change the look of your room.

Upgrade your window treatments by hanging new curtains. Choose light, airy fabrics for a breezy look or heavy drapes for added privacy and warmth.

Walmart has an assortment of well-rated curtains at good prices.




10. Incorporate Indoor Plants

Add a touch of greenery to your bedroom with indoor plants.

Real plants can improve air quality and bring a sense of tranquility to your space.

Putting small plants on hexagon wall shelves (similar to the ones above), can really catch the eye.


Choose low-maintenance plants like snake plants, pothos, or succulents. (For more information on air-purifying plants, click here.)


Or if you don’t have a green thumb, you can get an artificial plant like the faux olive plant below from Walmart. An artificial plant won’t filter the air, but it will add some green to your room.

1. Paint Your Walls a New Color

I’ve saved this one until last because it is the most-consuming and laborious thing on this list. But it can provide the most profound change in your bedroom.

Painting your room is a simple idea, but not necessarily “easy”. The payoff can be huge though.

Whether you choose a calming neutral or a bold hue, a fresh coat of paint can completely transform the space.

We had a mint green bedroom and decided to go with a more calming grey color when we did a bedroom makeover.






Thank you and I hope you’ve enjoyed this list of bedroom refresh ideas.
