Ahh, summertime. Summer is for changing and growing to your full potential, so why not give your bedroom a "new" life too! Here are some suggestions for making over your bedroom for summer.
Select bright, colorful, and mood-lifting colors. Whether you're painting the whole room or just adding new decorations, be sure to use bright colors to match the brightness of summer. Some suggestions are orange, aquamarine, and lime.
Find new sheet sets and comforter. Match these with the room colors. Though, make sure it is not too heavy, it is summer after all. You probably don't want a heatstroke!
Add new lamps. Choose lamps that have lovely shades, again fitting in with the room colors.
Find a suitable fan for the ceiling to keep you cool. Or use a portable fan if you can't add a new one to the ceiling.
Add new curtains. Find curtains that can block out heavy sunlight in the middle of the day but diffuse the light during other times of the day. A good combination is net curtains with heavier drapes over the top.
Add new cushions and pillows. These can create an instant new look in your room
Consider updating your furniture. Add a new bookshelf, perhaps a desk, or a chair.
Accessorize! Add a few books sitting casually by the end table, or decorate a pencil pouch. Make your room look lived in. (Though don't clutter everything up!)
Enjoy your new, summery room!
