Guest Bedroom Reno Recap | Charmer in Alexandra

Before Guest Bedrrom.jpg

Bedroom renovations are a chance to add a unique look and style to a room. With wooden ceiling, a large window, picturesque fireplace and wall height, the options were endless! Watch how we took a dated spare room and created a soft green glamour filled bedroom fit for any guest on our Reno Recap video.

Tips for a Bedroom Renovation

  1. Add some colour to your walls. While the colour scheme in the living areas needs to work cohesively with the rest of the house and most prefer a neutral palette, the bedrooms offer the chance to do something different. But what colour to choose? Start with colours of the clothes you love or a colour that draws you in an art piece or in nature!

  2. Make sure you fill in all the gaps! No more gaps is a must when you are renovating, especially if you are painting a old house. After you have primed all your walls and trims fill any gaps around the architraves, skirtings and cornices.

  3. Add texture to your interior design. The use of linen fabric within the drapes and the loop pile texture of the carpet adds depth and warmth to the room. There are a lot of strong lines in this room with the ceiling paneling and fireplace surround, so the texture softens those lines. Consider not just the colour of your product selections, but the patterns and texture, without texture your space may feel clinical or cold.
