5 rules for a fab room


 
So your room has been borderline blah for as long as you can remember. Same bedspread. Same wall color. Same furniture. Just ‘cause you’re getting sick of your space doesn’t mean you’ve gotta shell out some major dough to give your bedroom a facelift. Try out our top-10 tips for a totally you look that won’t have ya cracking open your piggy bank.


Pick a signature piece
Maybe it’s a super-bright comforter, an accent wall, a huge painting or the life-sized stuffed bear you won at the boardwalk. Whatever it is, let it take center stage and arrange the rest of your room to compliment it. Avoid clashing colors or lots of things competing for attention—that’ll make you’re room look way-busy.


DIY details
Crafting your way to an ah-mazing room is a great way to save money and create a 100-percent Y-O-U zone. Whether you’re whipping up cool lampshades, new curtains or a memory board, you can choose the colors and patterns that go best in your room. Sweet, right?


Get personal
Living in a room with no personal details is totally boring. This is the one place in the house where you can let yourself shine, so pull out those soccer trophies, horseback riding ribbons and science fair awards. And for goodness sake, show off those snaps of you and your sweeties!


Area 411
Delineating different spaces in your room—your sleeping area, your study area, your get-dressed-in-the-a.m. area—gives the illusion that your bedroom is actually bigger than it looks, and it will keep you on track when it comes to organization and activities. Did you know doing your homework on your bed might keep ya from getting zzz’s? It’s true! Use that study space and make your bed a sleep-only zone.


Cut the clutter

Nothing makes a room look smaller than a multitude of messes. Straighten up those piles of papers on your desk, toss loss barrettes and hair ties into a box or pretty bowl and get in the habit of putting your dirty clothes in hamper instead of on the floor. If you take five minutes to tidy up before heading to bed, you won’t have to face mom’s threats or the last-minute clean-up when your buds come over to hang out.


Tell me, babes: What are your rules for a totally fabulous room?
