If you want to give your bedroom a fresh, new look, start with different fabrics, textures, colors, and patterns. For a simple remodel job, changing out a bed comforter, window treatment, and artwork can change the entire appearance of the room. When working with fabrics, just remember to scale the printed fabrics. Picture frames can also make a huge difference. If you currently have a country style bedroom where your pictures are framed in ornate wooden frames, by changing the frames to black, wood, or clear, you can bring a contemporary look to your room. Perhaps you want a bedroom that is more masculine with a French flair. Using oversized gold frames will help with this decor.

Instead of living with a boring, drab bedroom, why not remodel. You can choose from a full remodel to simply giving your bedroom a beautiful facelift. Start by determining your budget, specific ideas, and the amount of time you have to dedicate to the project. For example, if you want to remodel your bedroom during a week long vacation, you may be more limited to what can be done than if you had no time limit. Another consideration relates to who will be doing the work. If you are hiring a professional, then you will need to weigh things out differently than if you were doing the work alone.
