New Young Girl, Boy Bedroom

Sunday, August 9, 2009

Is your modern young boy girl bedrooms an inviting oasis of relaxation? Or does it look more like a storage unit, a veritable wasteland of clutter, dirty clothes, dirty dishes and kid's toys.

If your room is the latter and you're finding it increasingly more difficult to find the bed when it's time for bed, you may want to consider giving your bedroom a well-deserved makeover.With just a few changes, some hard decision making and some tough love, you can transform you bedroom into everything you ever dreamed it should be. And it's easier than you think.

Start with the basic

First, your bedroom is not a storage facility. If things in the room do not contribute to relaxation, enhance the beauty, add space or provide some entertainment, get rid of it. Pack it up, move it to another room or put it in the garage or trash. If you like to watch a little television before calling it a night, consider getting an armoire to hide it away when it's not in use.

If you're an avid reader, make sure your nightstands have a drawer so you can put your book or magazine away, along with your glasses. If you love the latest fashions, add more dressers, wardrobes and a closet organizer to the room. Finally, get a hamper for the dirty clothes so you're not tempted to leave them wherever they fall. As they say, "A place for everything, and everything in its place."

Add furniture to the mix

Now that your room is clear of clutter, it's time to add beauty and charm to the space. Start by looking at your furnishings. Do they have the same style or at least complement one another? Are there pieces that should be moved out to make way for others? Does the style of your furniture match your tastes.
