Sometimes it’s the littlest things that make the biggest difference, check out the changes
0:05
big and small, in this beautiful bedroom makeover.

Stuck with a bland ‘builder’ bedroom? Borrow some of our design basics and a couple of
0:16
creative ideas to come up with your own relaxing retreat.

Paint’s an easy and cost-conscious way to
0:22
make a big change in any space. Use a neutral palette to paint the walls, it makes it easy
0:27
to layer color and texture in the rest of the room. Introduce an accent color, like
0:32
this pretty pop of coral, by painting some accessories. This tray and side-table help
0:36
pull the color around the room. For something a little unexpected, try painting the accent
0:41
color on your doors, but only right here, so you get a cheery surprise every time you
0:46
open them. And give boring doors a boost by painting them with this easy faux-panel technique.

Texture and pattern are important to any room,
0:55
but can be intimidating to choose. One easy way to introduce pattern, repeat it. Just
1:00
like the accent color repeats around the room, so does this motif reminiscent of a greek
1:05
key. You see variations of it on the textiles, in the accessories – even the DIY headboard
1:10
is a nod to the pattern. And be sure to bring a variety of textures into play; here
1:15
you see it in the carpets, bedding, pillows, even the drapes.

This wall is actually a great takeaway. A dramatic expanse of drapes like this can create a
1:24
focal point in a room that doesn’t have one, or use it to mask an awkward
1:28
or off-centered window placement. So all it takes to go from basic and boring
1:33
to a relaxing retreat are some of Lowe’s Creative Ideas.
