Simple Bedroom Ideas


he bedroom is the most personal room for most homes. It should also be one of the most personalized. It can be a romantic love nest or a sanctuary for sleep and relaxation. It can be cheerful and calming for the kids, as they innocuously delude themselves into thinking they own the room. Wanting to impress friends, neighbors, and guests, homeowners tend to get tunnel-vision, focusing on public areas of the home. It’s time to be selfish and turn your attention to bedroom decorating. After all, before you take that morning shower, you must first get out of your bed.

First, you must find out what material they are made from. if it is a possibility, you can either paint or stain the cabinets a new color. Purchase new hardware for your cabinet to update your look.




rooms separate without looking like a color palette? One approach you could take is to select a neutral paint color to run through all of these rooms. You can further identify each room through curtains, pillows, rugs, artwork and decorative accessories. Another approach you could take is to select varying shades of the same color!

have a large old bookcase that is currently natural color with some finish left on. I want to paint it white for storage use in a bathroom. what is best kind of paint to use for this/best process for painting it? Brush, roller, spray paint? I don’t mind if some grain shows through/scuffs up because it will give it an antique look that I am fine with. An oil based primer and oil based exterior paint. You can just scuff it up and brush it on, take your time and do it right though, I hate to see natural wood get painted, but understand for your use in a bathroom. Don’t be afraid of oil based paint, they are superior to latex. You may want to brush the primer, brush the oil (maybe 2 coats) and possible spray a clear enamal.

The Round Dining Table A more intimate space loves a round dining table. If you prefer to entertain small groups of friends and family, or you don’t have a dedicated dining room, round could be for you. Just as with a rectangular or square table, measure your space and apply the same chair measurements. Allow 26 inches per person for elbow room on a three- to six-seater and 24 inches for six or more. A round table usually has one pedestal leg, offering extra leg room. I like the timber footrest on the bottom of this pedestal, as those seated can raise their feet off the ground and get a little extra support.

The Rectangular Dining Table Rectangular tables are the most popular shape for dining. Consider the length of table that your room can comfortably fit. Generally, 36 inches between the edge of the table and each wall or other piece of furniture will allow for chairs to be pulled out with ease. If you can, leave 48 inches between the table and the entrance into the room Having an arched entrance like the one in this picture stops the awkward bunching of people at your door when you announce that dinner is served. Once you know how long your table can be, you can then work out how many can comfortably sit around it. Allow at least 24 inches of elbow room for each guest.
